• This weekend we had a 2 day ASFA trial with a Best in Event/Perpetual Trophy (the Edsel trophy). The very first winner of the Edsel trophy was a basenji, Sherwood's Red Baron, 10 years ago. Robyn Dubbert brought Baron out this weekend to cheer us on. We had a fantastic weekend for basenjis!
    To be eligible for the Edsel trophy, dogs must have run both days and had to have won BOB at least one day. Callie took BOB yesterday, Zip took best of breed today. Callie and Zip both ran for the Edsel trophy, so we had a great basenji representation!
    In a HUGE surprise turn of events (I had already packed up Callie's blankets & slip lead because I knew she hadn't won), Zip & Callie tied and got called back for a basenji best in event run off!!!!!!!
    They almost tied again, but Callie won by a very slim margin (we weren't told the scores, but it must have been a single point), to take the Edsel trophy!!! This is her first best in event! Yay Callie!

  • LOL I knew you couldn't wait until you got home to post. Huge congrats again to a very impressive victory!

    PS Please keep the trophy clean and polished since my Rainie is going to win it next year. 😃
