Jaroufa's Light of Djakomba was my dog,Lightning.He was the most wonderful dog in the whole world.Sadly,I lost him to the first Diamond Dog Food Recall.
Lightning was a friend to all he meet.
How was your dog,Roo related to my Lightning?
Kathryn thanks for posting!
Your Jaroufa's Light of Djakomba (Brindle and White) was bred to Djakomba Streaks Wyoland(Brindle and White). That pairing produced Djakomba's Jumpin Jack Flash(Brindle and White) Djakomba's Jumpin Jack Flash was then bred to FL Danc Hussr (Black and Tan) which produced the Dam of our Basenji Chewy Barrick( Brindle and White). Chewy Barrick was bred to Barricks Diamond(Red and White) that produced our Basenji Roo(Red and White).
Unfortunately for us we lack information on the Sire's side. We have a couple of names that appear as his parents but nothing further back.
On the Dam's side we believe we have all the AKC numbers going back to Jaroufa's Light of Djakomba who came from the pairing of CH. Kazor's Vim 'N Vigor at Sirius and Arubmec's Sage of Djakomba.
By the way our Basenji Roo tested Fanconi clear and should be up on the OFA site.
The Breeder or Back Yard Breeder in Illinois where we got our puppy was given the Sire and Dam from his sister who was in Pa. Even though we followed up with the Breeder and he contacted his sister to get information, his sister did not provide the information to him in regard to the sire's pedigree and so the litter was unregisterable with the AKC. Of course this broke our hearts because we certainly would have shown Roo and since he tested probably clear for Fanconi we would have made him available for breeding. Of course the most important thing in the end, was to give our Basenji the best home possible.
Since all was not in order, Miranda and I did the responsible thing. We had him Fanconi Tested and Neutered. Now we will apply for a Pal number from the AKC so we can involve him in both Agility and Coursing and hopefully with the right training from us and some patience he will have fun and bring home some awards from his participation.
