I brought Zoni to another show this weekend in central WI. It was a pretty small entry (she was the only puppy) and Zoni didn't win anything, technically, other than her class (she was the only one in it). But there was a best puppy in show competition so she got to compete and she won the puppy hound group. We got to go in the big ring right before the real best in show which was a cool experience. She didn't get best puppy in show but I'm bragging because I'm really proud of her being a little trooper and lasting the entire day. It was really hot outside and inside the building too (a hockey rink without the ice, unfortunately). She did really well around all of the other dogs and people too.
And a shout out to Carrie Jones too, her special Gracie took the real hound group. It was kind of cool that basenjis took both the hound groups. Both b/w basenjis too!
