    Oh, my unmet friend…I have to fall on the kindness of friends to help me post photos.
    But I will share what I can. What is really wonderful are the 4 other dogs they brought over from Africa...they are just so neat. I hope the BCOA thinks so as well.
    If they do, and the membership likes them, they might be able to help the b's in the future.
    Then we all really will be related by dogs!!

  • Don't worry, Petra. I'll take plenty of pictures of Ms. Wheat for you. :) I will have my camera in hand the entire National (well, except when I'm in the show ring :) ) So I'll make sure and take some pictures if I cross her and Sharron's path.

    Nemo, if you come by to watch the africans, we can meet and greet. I will take advantage of your kind offer to take photos and share them.
    Again, I will be bringing my own chair and on the back of it, it says basenji rescue.
    Laugh, I bet there is only one chair like that in the whole place.
    A friend posted that the temps will be in the 80's. so the b's will be happy and I will be looking for shade!

    Just remember, don't hand the camera to me. :)

    Today around 1130a it was 88 in Co Springs as I was out and about. But this is Colorado, so just to be safe, bring all of your clothes as it might be in the 90's or it might snow, or it might do both in during the week. It's best to be prepared. <gg>Okay, probably NOT any snow, but it may be chilly in the evenings, so bring a light sweater (jumper if you're coming from the other side of the pond) or jacket (heavier if you're from Floridia) and mostly summer clothes and you should be fine. Otherwise, you can always go shopping.</gg>

    Well, I just was informed by my travel friend Lisa, I will be "showing" Wheat, when Lisa shows her red girl.GROAN! I love watching this..but heavens…I am not into showing and Wheat hasn't be trained to being. show..sooooooo
    It will be a good grin for all who wish to watch.
    What the heck....my girl is wonderful...just look at her and not at me!!!

  • Oh, you'll be fine. And everyone will be rooting for you. The stock exhibition is more laid back from my impression last year. Plus a number of the imports I've seen aren't that fond of being shown or don't have that much experience so the owners don't seem to worry about it too much and just try to make it pleasant for the dog.

  • Sharron, I know you have it in you! You and Miss Wheat will draw the most clapping, I am sure of it!
