Historic Maldon Kennel Club Show – 5 Jan 2014

Historic Maldon was our first show for 2014 due to car issues preventing attendance at other shows. Hound specialist Mrs Jane Millar (Vic) was the judge today. Tambuzi The Isle of Avalon (Arthur) took top breed honours with Best of Breed  at just over 6 months old. He followed that up with Best Puppy in Group. Sister Tambuzi Secret of Roan Inish (Willow) took reserve bitch challenge; her third consecutive reserve bitch challenge award, she was also keenly looked at and ‘run’ for best minor in group, but missed out to a very smart mini-wire. Well done Arthur!

Central Highlands Show – 28 Dec 2013

Mrs Lynette Brown (NSW) was the Hound Group judge today. Very pleased with how the ‘kids’ went with Tambuzi The Isle of Avalon (Arthur) winning the Puppy Class and being looked at for reserve dog challenge. Tambuzi Secret of Road Inish (Willow) was a little naughty gaiting but was awarded first in the minor puppy class. She went on to take her second reserve bitch challenge (BB2) again beating a Grand Champion along the way. I was even more thrilled for her to be awarded Best Minor Puppy in Group.

Shepparton Agricultural Society Show – 12 Oct 2013

Today the Hound Group was judged by Mr Richard Stoate (Victoria). The puppies had not been on a lead since the shows last weekend and it showed. The fact that the grounds had been used by horse exhibitors the previous day meant the smells were Basenji heaven and suddenly the puppies became vacuum cleaners. This time Tambuzi The Isle of Avalon (Arthur) won baby puppy of breed and went on to win Best Baby Puppy in Group. Dad Ch Debrak On the Road Again (AI) (Ringo)  took Best of Breed and his daughter Ch Tambuzi The Rinpoche of Qinghai (Ruby) was Runner Up Best of Breed.

Seymour A&P Society Show – 5 Oct 2013

A beautiful sunny day and such a contrast to the Horsham shows. The hound group was judged by Mrs A M Hearn. The babies were not gaiting as well as they can – but when do babies ever gait nicely at the right time! Even so Tambuzi The Isle Of Avalon (Arthur) won first place out of 4 baby puppy dogs. Tambuzi Secret Of Roan Inish (Willow) won first place out of 3 baby puppy bitches and then went on to Best Baby Puppy in Group. Not to be out done the adults Tambuzi The Sherpaof Annapurna (Tobi), owned by Colleen, took out the dog challenge and Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby), owned by Lisa-Jane,  took out the bitch challenge and went on to Best of Breed. Congratulations to all!
