Harper's (Ch Tambuzi Night Flight To Venus) PennHip results were received in March. Yet another exceptional result. In fact Harper's hips score could be the lowest for a Basenji screened by the PenHip system which as a breeder is something to be proud of. Another one of my Basenjis ranked in the top 5% of the breed. Harper's score is below; Right Hip (Distraction Index) 0.21 and left 0.20, with no signes of OA in either hip. The breed ranges between 0.27 - 0.75 with an average 0.45.
Jakey's (Ch Tambuzi The Aeronaut) PennHip results were received in March. He was screened at the same time as his litter sister Haroer. Very pelased with Jakey's hip score. The great result re enforces why such screening is so important. Jakey's score is just outside the tightest 5% for the breed, a percentage being reduced because of the low scores recently - many being my dogs scores. Jakey's score is below; Right Hip (Distraction Index) 0.27 and left 0.29, with no signes of OA in either hip. The breed ranges between 0.27 - 0.75 with an average 0.45.
Alfie's (Tambuzi The Aviator) PennHip results were received in March. He was screened at the same time as his litter sister Harper and litter brother Jakey. Very pelased with Alfis's hip scorew hich is well below the breed average. Right Hip (Distraction Index) 0.36 and left 0.32, with no signes of OA in either hip. The breed ranges between 0.27 - 0.75 with an average 0.45.
Willow's (Ch Tambuzi Secret Of Roan Inish) PennHip evaluation report was received last week. Very pleased with her result. Both hips DI 0.29, with no evidence of OA in either hip. Willow's hips are ranked in the tightest 5% of the breed. The breed ranges from 0.29 (Willows score being the tightest) to 0.78.
The breed average DI is now to 0.46. This is disappointing as the average is higher some of the breeds one expects to have higher scores; for example, German Shepherd Dogs have an average score of 0.40, 0.6 lower than Basenjis!
I was amazed by the efficiency of the result - the X-rays were only taken one day and back the next from the US - well done PennHIP!
Both Willow and Lyra had further eye examinations today. Their eyes have been screened as part of the Tambuzi Health Management Program. An ACES approved specialist conducted the eye examinations. I am very happy to report that both Lyra and Willow received certification that they both have 'normal' eyes. There was no sign of cataracts, PRA, coloboma, and no PPMs of any type. It is especially relevant that periodic eye screening is carried out in a breeding program. This is the second eye examination that Willow and Lyra have had completed.
Today at the Sovereign City Kennel Club championship show the hound group was judged by Mrs Sue Langford (Vic). Lyra (MBIS MRUBISS Ch Tambuzi The Secret Society) was awarded Best of Breed and later went of to Best Junior in Group.

As I wasn't able to enter the show a little more 'local' to me (in Victoria) today so I had planned the journey up to Southern NSW. To show Lyra of course and also my friends mini smooth dachshund. I've shown him a number of times and have done quite well - he is a nice boy. The show was the Holbrook Show Society 2016 . The judge was Mr Derek Hyde (ACT) he awarded Lyra Best of Breed followed by Best Exhibit in Group, Best Junior in Group and later through to Best Junior in Show. This takes Lyra to the 10 best in groups as one requirement for the title of Supreme Champion. Lyra must now complete the other requirement if 1,000 points. Really excited with Lyra she continues to do so well under all manner of judges.
