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.

Bacchus Marsh & District Club – 13 Oct 2013

The Hound Group was judged by Mr Keith Prior (Victoria). Baby puppies Tambuzi Tutanekai (Raven) and Tambuzi Secret of Roan Inish (Willow) were shown.  Willow took baby of breed and later won Best Baby Puppy in Group against a good number of quality babies. Well done kids!

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!

Horsham Agricultural Society – 2 Oct 2013

The day at Horsham was a baptism of fire for Team Tambuzi babies; Raven, Willow and Arthur. A cold day that saw some sunny spells interspersed with what felt like hurricane force winds which almost knocked dogs off the tables! To diving rain. Tambuzi Secret of Roan Inish (Willow) took Best Baby Puppy in Group at the afternoon show under Mr W Mooney. We waited patiently avoiding the rain storms and assisting in holding down gazebos in the wind. Just as we entered the ring for Best Baby Puppy in Show there was a major rain storm. Judging was stopped. The temperature dropped several degrees and poor Willow not only resembled a brindle as the rains streaked through her coat but was absolutely freezing.
