Resurrecting my profile!

After several failed attempts to log in, I created a new account, found my old account and now I'm rearing to go!

I haven't logged into the Basenji Forums in about 3 years, however I used to be very active with BRAT in the Pacific NW.

I've had Rhodesian Ridgebacks since 2001; adopted my first BRAT rescue in 2005 and fostered various rescues until 2010.

Two years I relocated from the Pacific NW to the greater Charlotte, NC area. And now to the point, I miss my mischevious little Basenji's! Three years ago I ventured into the conformation world with a show Ridgeback and I'm currently working on the championship with my second one; I still participate in lure coursing, rally and obedience and I'm still mustering the self-training and courage to try tracking and agility 😉

I've been talking with a small group of nice breeders in my area and hopefully there we be a spunky curly-tailed whirlwind that joins my home sometime next year.

In a nutshell, it's good to be back!

Welcome back!

Hi, so it must be a while since you had a basenji if you are missing the mischievous little things. Don't forget photos of your new curly-tailed whirlwind(love that description) when you get him or her.

What breeders are you talking to?… just wondering...

@tanza:

They rarely place any show puppies with anyone outside of their core group and I've already had to go through multiple interviews, I don't want to jeopardize anything so I'm not comfortable with sharing any of that information at this point. 🙂

I'll tell you through PM if you are dying of curiosity 😉

PM is not private on this group…. so you can email me direct, email address on my website, link below!

Welcome back and congrats on your success with your RR. I do coursing, racing rally and showing with mine. I'm in tracking class now with one of my basenjis, he enjoys it a lot, but frequently gets distracted by birds, deer poop, turkeys etc, the sighthound part of him is his undoing. I was starting agility training with Gambit, but that is on hold now as we are breeding both her and her sister this month and they will be out of performance events for a while. Their litters will be whelped and placed by Tad at Meisterhaus Basenjis as he is the one arranging the breedings and researching the pedigrees, I just did the easy part - the DNA, PRA, Hips, Elbows and Thyroid testing.

Not so sure about RRs - Butu was beaten by a most gorgeous one in a CDS last month 😉 Welcome back - and good luck in getting a pup!

Distractions are very hard with sighthounds. Each of my dogs excels at some tasks more than the others, I can appreicate their individuality. I've heard wonderful things about Tad! Good luck with the upcoming litter.

My two boys, a Ridgeback and Siberian, to this day have not forgiven me for bringing in the "she devil"….. As for the cats (only one is brave enough to stand up to her) and teaching proper behavior with the help of water spray but man is she quick to get out of the way.. Life is no longer quiet and we wouldn't change it for the world and I thought Ridgebacks were addictive, nope they're just velcro dogs.... Welcome and have fun...
