Looks can be so deceiving- here is an article of a woman who adopted a rescue dog in N.J. Dog looks like a basenji - even her vet thought it might be basenji. She did an Embark DNA test - no basenji. Turned out the dog was a mixture of Mountain Cur, Rat Terrier, Beagle, and Boston Terrier. link text
Maya's First Ringcraft Tomorrow..
Maya last edited by
Well, Maya is all vaccinated now and ready to face the world :p
So… She is off to her first ringcraft class tomorrow I dont know if you guys call it "ringcraft" in other countries But anyway, its classes to get her ready for the show ring
she went along last week to watch and LOVED it. And more to the point, everyone loved her. We have a lot of hounds at our classes (mostly beagles and a couple of those sausage dog things ) so they were very interested to hear all about her, and her breeding and they had a cuddle with her (after they were well and truely soaked in virkon! they must have been keen lol) and stuff. Maya is such a laid back baby, she just quite happily goes from person to person for cuddles!
So, wish us luck for tomorrow. We're very good on the table. I was fortunate that the breeders spent time getting her used to standing and being handled on the table so that takes a lot of stress of my mind But she can be annoying on the lead, she walks well most of the time, but right behind me rather than next to me :rolleyes: Which is irritating, but she's getting the hang of it!
I shall drag my mum along and try and get her to take some pictures/videos if possible! I always love having pics of "puppies first ringcraft"
