Today we went to the Dutch Basenji Speciality. It was Lycia's first show and her first chance to try out coursing. Both the pups did good in their class: They both became second with an Excellent, under a judge who wasn't scared to give VG's, so we were proud.
Here are the judge reports:
Nice head and expression. Well set ears. Good reach of neck. Chest needs to come deeper. Nice topline. Good hind quarters. Good enough angulation. Needs to settle on the move.
Nice head and expression. Good reach of neck. Nice straight front. Nice top line. Good reach. Nice angulations. Moving a bit loose in front.
Tillo also took "Best Head" in Sweepstakes, so that was great too!
Of course the pups did even better on the coursing field!! They ran two courses alone and one together.
Here some (A LOT of) pics (I haven't got any pics of Tillo in the ring.. But Walter took some.. Walter..? ;))
Tillo before his first course
This is what you do when you have grass between your teeth (Best head huh?! :rolleyes: ;))
Lycia before her first course.. Me telling her what she has to do
Lycia got it
Lycia's first time in the ring.. (and her first time with a show lead.. her first time on the table..etc.) she made me work big time! But she did so so good!
Isn't she pretty?
