Nicole made her own stuffed toy..
.. by emptying the stuffing of my sofa all over the floor and hiding all her other toys (which she stole out of her toybox) inside the newly created space in the sofa. She sat ever so proudly enjoying her creation when I walked in, and when I yelled at her I got something of a jokey groal back, telling me that "I can make sounds too, but you got to see the humour in this", and then she just jumped around wanting to play, her tail wagging ever so much!
I guess that's what you get for leaving her alone in the living room for a couple of hours while working on the computer. She doesn't like not having my attention, which she proved again in the evening by destroying a CD case in a million small sharp pieces. She clearly doesn't approve of the increased amount of work I have at the moment
RE: Top USA Breeders?
Thank you for your replies! Now an entirely different question that I maybe should make a new thread for, but that I feel some of you might still be able to find and answer here:
Do you know of plans to import from Congo in the future and how to get in contact with the right people to take part in such an adventure?
RE: More pictures :o)
She decided that the carpet was way more interesting than walking around, so the judge couldn't really get a real feel of how she moved. All other dogs did one lap around the ring, while the judge asked us to do it four times, and Nicole still didn't really want to follow at all. It was a little embarassing to say the least
We got a pretty good verdict though:
"Beautiful lines. Slightly narrow head. Great expression, fairly big ears. Good neck, equal transient angulations (google translate here). Great top-line, tail and behind. Smooth movement from all sides when she decides to move in a calm fashion. Great color and coat."
The competition was pretty hard since there were 30 other basenji puppy girls competing with her (Basenji owners in Finland are extremely active compared to most other breeds). Better luck next time I guess.
More pictures :o)
We were training for a dogshow, and during all our training-sessions she did just fine but at the actual day of the show she decided to act like a complete clown, typical…
This is from one of her better days:
We also decided to give lure coursing a shot and she absolutely loves it, I have to make sure to let her try it out again.
The other day she was also stung by a bee, but she didn't seem to mind at all and acted as if nothing had happened, while I was naturally panicing. Luckily it didn't cause any real trouble… this time.
Top USA Breeders?
With the risk of causing some trouble, I'm interested in what the "top" breeders are in USA, and with top I mean a breeder that has several Bs that have done really well in shows, or that have an exceptionally great personality.
Hope this question, nor potential replies will offend anyone…
