Thanks!!!!

🙂 Yay I'm planning to go! I live in Studio City but my mom and dad live in Sunnyvale so I'll just stay with them and hit the show I cant wait I want to take lots of pictures.
I'm excited I have been to some dog shows but I have never been to a specialty. I dont know much about them other than someone told me there are alote more basenji's around.I see that there is a banquet and auction. What kinds of things do they auction???

Anything remotely Basenji or African related. Actually a lot of very good finds-I found some old issues of the Basenji Mag!

The auction is great… things you will mostly never see anyplace else... it is really cool and we have lots of stuff planned for during the week too.....
Depending on gas and stuff, usual entry for the regular show is over 400 Basenjis.... so, yes.. lots of B's around....
Please consider being a class sponsor... and help No. Ca make this the best Specialty yet!!!! And don't forget the clothes for sale with the logo.... this is not silk screened.. these are embroidered... and they are really cool... once the deadline for order is past.. that will be it.. they will not be available after...
Hope to see and meet lots of you at the Nationals!!!!!

You know we'll be there! Chance won't miss it for the world!

I am really looking forward to it. I haven't been to a National since the Arizona National in Scottsdale, AZ. This time I will probably have just about a dog for nearly every event. 🙂

I have a question since I have never been to a specialty is this an outdoor event I can bring my dog to or should I leave the little one at home? I was not sure if it is only open to the dogs that are going to be in the show.

This is not an outdoor event with the exception of the Lure Trials and Af Match that are Oct 13th and 14th in Livermore. Certainly you are welcome to bring your B (or any dog) to that event… the show itself at the fairgrounds will be indoors and be much better to leave them home unless you want to set up an expen outside the building.

Pat, is there going to to any special opening ceremony or parade of dogs? I didn't see anything like that on the events calendar.

There is not.. the only parade is on Sunday at Livermore with the Af Match and the parade of Full Afs that happens after the match.

I am looking forward to it too 🙂 It is way WAY fun, and this one should be awesome!

Everyone at Tim's workplace calls it our annual "basenjifest"

I'm still hoping to go-I'll know shortly if I can. I had planned on going, but life has a way of getting in the way. I absolutely love these 'Basenjifest's.'

Arlene…did you go to the BCOC specialty?

Oh, yes. Sally Wourno's little bitch is absolutely wonderful. I'm hoping (keeping my fingers crossed that all Sugar's tests come back acceptable) to breed Sugar with her dog 'Ron.' Wanda was there also with Blade. Chris and Allie Cowe were there. Sue's little boy Jammers took reserve to Blade.

Sounds like fun! I like Ron too…and Blade 🙂

Thanks for the plug for the National BBoy! I will be leaving arriving in NoCal on Tuesday. I plan to bring a laptop, so I can send 'reporter on the scene' notes each day…Pat and Lisa *may be a little too busy 🙂

I'll be sending updates as much as I can from Nationals. Im wired…Laptop, PDA, Digital Camera. Ha! Gotta love technology.
Unfortunately I started a trial this past week and now my schedule is hectic. Argh!
Chance goes in the ring the beginning of the week so I'll keep ya posted.

Cool! I'll get to meet Vanessa! Is Chance entered?
