Hi all, new to the group

Hello everyone, just thought I would make a small post to introduce myself. I am Charlene, a newcomer to the world of dog showing, and am lovingly owned by my first show dog and basenji "Zumi". I am in northern/central Michigan, USA. I have always fancied dogs but until last year never had the opportunity to show or really get involved with them. Through some wonderful basenji friends both in Real Life and online I have that wonderful opportunity opened to me. (though the GSD showing door was so rudely slammed in my face) I'm glad to join in your forum and meet so many more wonderful B-people!

not sure what all to say

well, thats all i suppose!

Welcome, what is Zumi's registered name? Have you already been showing?

Welcome. B folks are often the best of the best!

Thank you all for welcoming me so nicely. In my very limited showing I have noticed basenji people are some of the best people in the dog show business. The first dog i really ever "handled" was a super awesome boy named Mojo who was already trained and was so nice to allow me to mess with him 🙂

Well, Zumi is a boy, and I am just the "handler" stumbling along behind him. So I actually am the showgirl.

Zumi's Registered name is Worrywort's Kiroja Akkadian Epic. I co-own him with Linda Lipford or Worryworts, and Kelli Harmon of Kiroja. He has not really been shown just yet, his first match is June 7th. We have only been working on the whole show etiquette stuff at our classes.

not completely sure how to put pictures up on here, but i do have quite a good few i would love to share.
(to see a pic of the little bugger there is a pic of him and one of my foster rats as my avatar.)
