Winners Dog today for 1 point… but we will take it! 😉

And he showed really well today, as opposed to yesterday when he wore his "wicked" Tri suit to a T!!!!

Congrats! Makin' Mama proud!

WOOOWEEEE~~
A point is a point!!
It cost $30+ on entry fees, better bring home some point(s) to get your money worth!!! LOL

Well and then add in pictures.. and it is such a deal!!!! 😞

@hdolbow:

congrats!! 😃

Thanks.. it is a pretty big joke for show people…. people ask what you win?... and you get to tell them... well a ribbon and spend another 30.00 for pictures... gggg:D

lol.. yeah i have no idea what any of this means.. points and all that.. hahahah 😃

Yes, points are towards their AKC Conformation championship… and it is totally a money output... certainly you get no money back.. but it does for responsible breeders show that you are breeding a correct Basenjis with good conformation and temperament.. same as with performance events..

makes sense. lol 😃

**Not to mention gas and mileage, and time off work if you have to take Friday off to drive to the show for a 2 day show weekend. AND hotel cost…etc!!

I always say that it cost about $1500 to finish a dog, roughly about $100 per point. You spend about $100 on expenses per a weekend show, and if you are lucky, you bring home a point or two. If not, you try harder again at next show. LOL

Oh yea, like Pat said, cost of show photos. BOY OH BOY!
Another $30+ a pop!

If you finish a dog under $1500 on expenses, that's a cheap championship!! :o)

That's why any responsible breeder who shows and does all the health testings before breeding, have eyes done on each pup and vaccinations AND microchip if not more. You are lucky to break even when having a litter of pups. Not to mention all the time you put in to socialize, clean up after, feeding and around the clock care before the little ones go to their new homes at at least 8 weeks of age. I like to keep mine till 10 weeks.

Anyhoo.....off my soup box!!! Again, congrats to Pat and Kobey for being one point closer to his championship!!**

Yes and those of us that aren't breeders but show their dogs get nothing back money wise.

It's all just for fun and the feel good when you have a pointed or Champion dog. Being involved with such events provides valuable information and you meet so many great people.

**Showing is expensive but I LOVE IT, every second of it!
Some people spend money on golfing, some spend money on dog shows!
I have to agree, most dog people are GREAT!
Met a lot of great people, great friends thru the years of showing.

Not to mention when you trying to get up to the Top 20, Top 10 level.
That's when you are starting to spend big bucks!! 🙂

Hey Basenji_boy! Aren't your Kim Byrd?? You don't breed anymore?? I look up your info and your website is Kisabasenjis, that's Kim's website.

Right on…. you are so right.... and then add in those of us that do performance on top of showing...

However, all that said, we know that when we(responsible breeders) place puppies, we are placing well bred, health tested, properly socialized, well raised, happy well adjusted puppies (this is not to say that you will not have your problems with pups...LOL, they are still Basenjis and puppies after all)..... and these pups are on a contract (spay/neuter unless other arrangements are made with the breeder) and the breeder is responsible and will take back their pups for its entire lifetime.

Don't even want to think about going there. Hey if you have a dog good enough, you should.

We work with Kim, she does the breeding thankfully.:D Kim also is specialing a Min Pin that's in the top five…....we help her with the Basenji end of it. She's been a good mentor for us.;)

That's good, Willy still has just two points, with a little more than limited showing.:(

Well once you get on a roll, they go quick…. it is the majors around here that are a real "pain" in the butt to find.....
