AKC Agility Invitational Dec. 2010

Our AKC Agility Invitational videos are done. I have posted them to my youtube account for anyone interested. Some good runs and some not so good runs - which is the way with basenjis!

Feigh ended up as top basenji with a score of 385 out of 400. Out of 97 total all breed entries in the 16 inch class

  • Feigh ended up #46.

Drew was in preferred - this was his retirement weekend after becoming the first basenji to earn the PAX title - the highest AKC agility any basenji has won thus far. He was a bit stressed - as was Rand - which was evident on a few of his runs but he saved the best for last and on his final run - earned a perfect 100.

Linda, thanks so much for posting these. My husband and I found them very enjoyable to watch. We loved how Feigh finishes his rounds buy a leap up into loving arms! Congrats to both Feigh and Drew.

What nice runs in what is a very high pressure situation. Happy little basenjis - both of them. Drew reminded me of my kids when he "discovered" the judge in his ring. <gg>I hope Zest! and I can go sometime.

Did Drew's jumping style change when he lost his eye? Just curious about his depth perception.</gg>

Great videos!! I'm a Feigh fan 🙂

Thanks Kim. I am sure you and Zest will one day go. Put it on your 'to do' list. I did. 🙂

Drew's jumping changed dramatically. He used to jump very similar to Feigh but without the overzealous enthusiasm that makes her jump too early sometimes. Once he lost the eye - he started to stutter steps and at 16 inches would crash the doubles and triples. As he gets older and age related changes occur to his remaining eye which had issues related to VF as well, hiis stuttering has gotten progressively worse so I was glad to get the PAX out of the way.

Thanks too Fran and Janneke. Feigh is a once in a lifetime Agility dog for me. 🙂
