• I just got the below email from Karen at the Basenji Rescue in So Cal.

    Pardon the group mailing but this is an email and picture we wanted to
    share. Max was adopted from us about 6 years ago and has been on a winning
    streak due to the great work his people mom Alyce has done with him. Max is
    on the right in the picture and obviously has the aero dynamics of running
    down pat while his sister Miko doesn't quite get the idea yet. We went to a
    fun match several months ago and watched Max go from lying around to
    supercharged as soon as it was time for him to compete. We get pictures from
    Alyce with Max looking totally bored as he is surrounded by ribbons from his
    many wins.

    Hi Karen:
    Sorry, I have not been keeping in touch. We've been busy and getting ready
    for our trip to Florida. As you know, Max as the number 2 basenji in the
    United States in agility, was invited to compete in the AKC National
    Invitational being held in Orlando, Florida this year.
    Max and I are driving so we are leaving on our trip in one week on December
    12th. We will have 2 days of competition on Dec 17 and 18 and we should be
    back home on December 23rd.

    I am not much of a photographer but I want to take some pictures for you and
    Chuck. We are very excited!! It is really a great honor to be invited!
    Only the top 5 dogs of each breed are invited to compete.
    Anyway I hope to have some pics for you when I get back.

    I've attached a picture of Max with his sister Miko. This is the first race
    that they ever ran together. They are complete opposite!!

    Hope all is well with you, Chuck and the kids.

    Alyce, Glenn, Mariah, Max and Miko


  • This is the kind of success story we want for all basenjis that need to be rescued. So heartwarming.

  • That's FABULOUS!!!! Getting any dog, but especially a basenji, to that level in agility is a big accomplishment.
