After a very long illness, Ken Leighton of Zuri Basenjis passed away in his sleep early this morning. He will be missed by all that love him and with his passing goes a wealth of knowledge on Basenjis…. He was my mentor in the breed,show ring, and lure field and was the "king" of lure coursing in No California, serving as the Region 2 director for many, many years with ASFA. Between he and his wife Marilyn, they finished more dogs then I can count both in the ring and on the lure field. Their very first Basenji was a wonderful Tri girl known as the "I want one"... as she could say this as clear as day!
God Speed Ken you will be missed
