The Basenji Club Victoria Specialty 2014 breed classes were judged by Mrs Lisa Tyler-Jackson (Shernazar Basenjis, UK). Tambuzi was represented by Ringo, Arthur & Willow. Along with Colleen's Ch Tambuzi The Sherpaof Annapurna (Tobi). Also Lisa's Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby). All with more than respectable results:

  • Ringo was awarded first place in a strong line up of open dogs. He went through to win Opposite Best Open In Show.
  • Tobi was awarded second place in the state bred dog class. This was arguably the most nail biting decision of the show.
  • Arthur was awarded first place in the puppy dog class. He went on to be awarded the reserve dog challenge. And Best Puppy In Show.
  • Ruby was awarded first place in the state bred bitch class. She went on to Opposite State Bred In Show.
  • Willow was awarded second place in the minor puppy bitch class.

The kennel is very honoured with some wonderful critiques.

Congratulations everyone!

Hound Club of Victoria Twilight Show – 2 Nov 2013

On Saturday 2 November we attended The Hound Club of Victoria's annual twilight show which is now in its 3rd year.  Exhibitors attended from most states and territories. The number of entries this year - 279 dogs. Basenjis were in group 4c and were judged by Mrs M Pereira (Brazil). Watching Mrs Pereira judge it seemed she concentrated and rewarded dogs that excelled in correct front and rear angulation and dogs with good muscle definition. Team Tambuzi were rewarded with dog challenge and Best of Breed being won by Ch Debrak On The Road Again (AI) (Ringo) and bitch challenge and Runner Up Best of Breed being won by Ringo's daughter Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby). Ringo was Best of Breed winner at the Hound Club of Victoria in 2010 and 2011. Ruby took Best Baby Puppy in Show at the Hound Club show in 2012. Could not have asked for more from the kids tonight!

Numurkah A&P Association Show 23 Oct 2013

Mrs B Doyle (Victoria) judged the Hound Group. It was good to see that the baby puppies were at last beginning to realise that they can actually walk and even managed to gait albeit for only a few steps here and there. Tambuzi The Isle of Avalon (Arthur) was placed 1st in a class of 3 baby dogs. Tambuzi Secret of Roan Inish (Willow) followed in her brother paw prints and was placed 1st in a class of 4 baby bitches. Arthur eventually went on to beat his sister for baby puppy of breed. Ch Debrak On The Road Again (AI) (Ringo) took out the dog challenge and his daughter Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby) won the bitch challenge. Ringo went to Best of Breed and was pulled out for group - even though he was being a real terror.
