June Fun Match in Maryland

@Quercus:

So, BBoyโ€ฆhow was it going into the ring? Did you have FUN? And your son looks like a natural, sign him up ๐Ÿ˜‰

I enjoyed myself, it was all in good fun and I think all had a good time. I didn't have to do much with Max just take him in the ring and stand thereโ€ฆthe wrinkles did the rest:D ....I could handle that.:D My Son had to do the whole conformation deal, we both agreed, it's not as easy as it looks.

Boy's day at the match for us, all three of our males went and My Son and I did some ring work:D ๐Ÿ˜ƒ . It was a good experience and fun at the same time.๐Ÿ†’
They had some nice prizes and some cool stuff was raffled off. They had a vine maker donate some vine with a Basenji on the label that seemed very popular.:rolleyes:

I enjoy talking to the people, some have dedicated many, many years to the breed........... it's inspiring.:)

I always come away with the same thought.

Special dogs, special people.๐Ÿ†’

I have to "ditto" everything saidโ€ฆit was our first time at something like this & was so incredibly fun to see loads & loads of typical besenji "tude" ๐Ÿ†’ LOL LOL I loved it!! My husband wanted to observe this time (fear of making a fool of himself, I think) but next year he's totally game for entering the ring ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Andrea you're right the Tri that won was Tammen's what a BAROOOOTiful Tri he was. We are all BIG admirers..very very cute dog.

And don't let BBoy fool you...him AND his son were naturals in the ring ๐Ÿ†’ ๐Ÿ†’ two cool cats..umm I mean 'senjis LOL ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Goldenfri I didn't know it was YOU :eek: :eek: I have pics of you & your little ones winning!! I was the one taking pics of the winners ๐Ÿ˜ƒ So glad you came..did you see Sweet Shelby??? What sweet & well behaved dogs :eek: & his curly tail was just too cute on such a large dog!

Thank-you from Shelby, Vince, my better half and myself. It was a awesome day. We had a great time at the fun match. Everyone was so friendly and the dogs were just gorgeous. Shelby had an unfair advantage in the least white contest but everyone was a good sport about it. it was also great meeting people from the forum. Jen, your furbabies are so cute and so feisty. B-Boy, I think Max may be almost as big as Shelby and she is half labrador! He's a big boy! Willie and Jasper were awesome and your son handles your dog's so well. You can tell the furbabies love him.

I was so impressed by all the dogs there and the dedication everyone has for their dogs. It was so cool! Like you all say, special dogs, special people!:)

I love this forum and I continue to learn so much from all of you. Thank-you again.

@SweetShelby:

B-Boy, I think Max may be almost as big as Shelby and she is half labrador! He's a big boy!

That was quite an adventure for Mr. Max.:D He doesn't get out all that much, so it was good for himโ€ฆhe was pretty nervous.

He is a big boy and I had a lot of people ask me about him......it was fun.

Maybe next year we'll bring the girls:eek: :eek: .:D

Oh cool, can you post up the pictures? ๐Ÿ™‚ It was really cool to see so many basenjis in one place. I was a little worried about how my guys would react because they tend to be weird and aggressive towards other basenjis, but they were great. Very well behaved and no problems. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I wish I had more pictures, but I was having so much fun I totally forgot to take them. :eek:

Ok so here's some pics of a FUN day at the Fun Matchโ€ฆYou may recognize some of the participants ๐Ÿ†’
