We had a great time, Hippo managed to not be too much of a turd!! He won his class (he was the only one in it!)
It was really fun meeting Nemo, and Nicole also from the forum. Hopefully we will be able to meet more of you at other shows this year!!!
It was cool meeting you too. Hopefully we'l bump into each other again at another show…and I should have Zoni with me in the future.
Congrats! We were there on Saturday for the Specialty! I do have some pictures I will be posting possibly. All the people we met were very friendly. Of course we took Roo with us. We were very happy to see that his behavior was very laid back with the crowds and other dogs that were at the event. I think that part of that goes to working on socialization skills and exposure.
We also met an older gentleman who was working with the judges and had a tie with a Basenji on it. When I asked him where he got the tie he told me he has had it so long he forgot where he found it.
I would encourage anyone who own's a Basenji or who is considering being a potential Basenji Owner to attend one of the shows in the country. It is a great learning experience.
Jason and Miranda
Good grief, I didn't make the connection when I was there. I talked to Miranda for a little while and I never caught Roo's name at the time and it maybe it would have clicked. Roo is very nice looking and he was really well behaved, very sweet too. Hope to see all of you again at another basenji function.
The show was a great learning experience for me for showing, most of the all breed shows in the area usually have only two to three basenjis at most in them, and the basenjis I saw before were really extremely well behaved. It was nice to see that a decent number of them weren't perfectly behaved, so I think there is some hope for me and Zoni. :p
