@SyberSade:

Now THAT is precious, Kelli! See why I call Basenjis "enchanting"?!

That's a good word for them. And yes, Roxie was certainly haming it up for the crowd that day. lol

Aww, such cute pictures and what a lovely family! Looks like you and Haley are quite the team already. 🙂

Hey, I have one of those paw crossers too. lol

@Nemo:

Congratulations! I wonder if Consumer Reports has a review of best honeymoon locations. LOL.

Dang, that was a good one Clay. 🙂

Nope, this person does not ring a bell. And there are no Carols listed in Louisiana in the BCOA roster, nor anyone with that location. Most responsible breeders are members of the Basenji Club Of America.

Congrats Michelle, that's awesome!!! I am so happy for you two, and have been wondering when I was gonna get to hear the good news. 🙂

Do keep us posted!

I can't really afford to go down there and take time off work, but it is tempting. My club has weight pulls up here though, so if we have some extra money this weekend that's what I'll be doing. lol

I wouldn't expect many, if any Basenji people at the Oberlin trial. You're more likely to see a few folks though at the trials in the Dayton area. (Yellow Springs, Fairborn, etc.)

There is an ASFA trial south of Detroit the second weekend of October. I'm planning on being there if you want to come? 🙂

And the sire you want to breed to should have all of these tests as well. And the same pedigree research should be done on him too. After all, the puppies will be genetically half his too, not just your girl.

Make sure you think long and hard and do lots of research before getting involved in breeding. The Basenji "season" is coming up fast and maybe waiting until next year will give you more time to complete health tests, find a sire that complements your girl, and prepare your litter plans? If you are going to bring puppies into this world, you need to be responsible for them for their entire lives and ensure that you have done the best you can for the breed to produce the healthiest, happiest, well socialized dogs for their new homes.

Ok, I will try to post them here and to BBR, etc. tomorrow. I am getting ready to go to work now.

AKC trial results are posted on AKC's website about 2-4 weeks after trials are run. ASFA results are not posted online, but are printed in ASFA's magazine. (Although I'm sure some clubs post stuff on their own website.) Also for anyone who competes in lure coursing, you can look up your dog's own point/leg status on AKC's website anytime. And for ASFA you just have to send an email to the records coordinator and she will respond with a list of your dogs' trials and results.

I have everything recorded though from nationals, so can give the breakdowns when I have some time.

Sarah, so sorry to hear the bad news. We are keeping Meeka in our thoughts!

Thanks for posting Clay! Such nice pictures. Hugs to the fabulous Zoni girl. 🙂 Yes, Linda has some very pretty black dogs, I was drooling over them too. lol

And you're correct for the lure trials. Penny was 2nd in veterans in ASFA, and Mickii won the open A stake in AKC. I can post full results if they aren't listed anywhere else. I still havn't caught up with any email since before the trip so I don't know. lol

Nick Russell used to have a website, but it was on AOL and they have gotten rid of their site hosting so it looks like he hasn't made a new one yet. You can contact him by email though, I'm sure he's still doing his collars. He has a yahoo address now. He made a ton of them for prizes at the nationals and he also had a big box he was selling from. They are like a wide decorative nylon but he calls them a safety choke, it's a limited slip like a martingale only it's a one piece collar. It's like a nylon version of a choke chain only it can tighten just a little bit and then stops so they don't go too tight. Lovely collars and well made. Roxie won one so now all mine have a Nick collar. I've been meaning to get her one. 🙂 They are very reasonably priced too. Nick has Basenjis so he knows all about making a pretty but functional collar. lol

If you would like Nick's email, you can look up my email via my website and contact me, I'd be happy to send you his contact info. Also if you'd like sample pics I can put some up.

Yay Rocky, that's my boy! Congrats Kathryn, and thanks for all that you do with him. I'm so glad he has such a wonderful home that lets him do what he loves to do! He finally gets the trophy that he technically earned last year too. lol

Congrats Clay, wow! She's certainly on a roll! It was wonderful meeting you and Zoni and looking forward to seeing you guys again in the future. 🙂

Congrats to Chloe, how awesome!!! Is your husband looking forward to his next trip in the ring now? 🙂

Nicole, it was great to have you and I really appreciate all your help with the dogs. It was so nice to meet you and I'm looking forward to getting together again sometime!

Thanks. Yes, poor Trog earned a well deserved rest after that one! But it all worked out nice in the end. 🙂 I'm sure Xander will get that GRC right quick and join us on the list. Happy running!

Fingers crossed for poor Meeka, hoping for a positive outcome.

Way to go, awesome Xander! It's beautiful to watch him run and he's a very deserving dog. It was a good week for the family, that was Roxie's 4th ASFA run, so she's now a Versatile Basenji. 🙂 I wish we could have watched the cousins run together, I'm sure that would have been a lovely sight. But with all the lure troubles and whatever was going on across the field, I guess we'll have to try again another time. lol
