Regarding the number of basenjis at shows. Only one that I've been to this year has had a handfull. Otherwise there have been loads. I believe that when I went to Potomac Hound Show this year there were more basenjis there than at the Chicagoland Specialty. Liyah is in the Hoosier Specialty this weekend and her class in Sweeps has 18! In her Conformation class there are 16 basenjis! Granted, the Hoosier is just before the National, but there are definitely opportunities for many basenjis at shows. And in order to get Jaycee's 2 majors, it will take beating at least a few!
I'm guessing she is in BBE? What confuses me is why that class is always so large. I realize it's a bigger brag to win or place out of that class, but it seems like if the class is always loaded up, the chance of actually winning the class actually goes down versus if people spread out through the different classes. I realize it does happen, but what are the chances that a really young puppy in BBE is going to win against a more mature dog in that same class? It's more of a curiosity to me considering I'm not eligible for BBE anyway (although Zoni is).
