Basenji Club Of Great Britain
I would like to thank the committee of the Basenji Club of Great Britain for the honour of judging the Christmas Open Show. I would also like to thank the exhibitors for their entries and for accepting my decisions in a sporting manner.
1-Kalnina’s Frederick Fantastic Destiny –My surprise of the day. Very nice R/W male of good size, lightly built with fine bone. Short backed giving a high on leg appearance compared with his length. Excellent head with profuse wrinkle and dark almond shape eyes, with small high set on ears. Well arched neck into well set shoulders. Deep brisket with a spring of rib. Tail tightly curled and set on high. When settled he moved well with a long swinging stride. Very clean fore and aft. BD, BIS & BPIS
2-Casentieri’s Adebanke’s King Cole of Alchez- B/W male. Presents a balanced outline with high on leg appearance. Good head with ample wrinkle and dark eyes. Neck of good length. Shoulders well laid back. Short backed but just needs to strengthen in topline. Moved with a swinging stride. Well handled.
2- JD (1,0)
Stewart’s Kingwanas Vincent Van Boof of Jenbasi (IMP NOR) – Good sized male. Would like slightly shorter in back to give high on leg appearance. Head OK but would like shorter muzzle. Nice dark almond shape eyes with ample wrinkle. Deep brisket. Just needs to spring in rib but this should come with maturity. Moved OK. Well handled.
Gostynska’s Bubas Apache –Another good sized male with classic headpiece. Well-chiselled with slight stop. Side lines of skull taper gradually towards mouth, giving a clean-cheeked appearance. Fine and profuse wrinkles with desirable side wrinkle and dark eyes. High on leg appearance. Fine boned. Neck well crested. Short in back with level topline. Deep brisket. Moved well. Pushed hard for higher honours but just not in condition of winner. RBD
