Midland Counties Canine Society - Basenji Judging

Saturday, 28 October 2023

I’d like to thank the committee for my invite & the exhibitors for accepting my placings with grace. I had some really beautiful dogs & thoroughly enjoyed my day.

1112. Basenji - Puppy Dog

Entries: 2 Absentees: 0

1ST 3673 - Mawali New Kid On The Block (Ms C & Dr D Vescan). Pleasing head & expression on this 9-month-old boy, he has a good neck & shoulder, straight front, feet were a little flat. Level topline, good depth of chest, well set on tail & excellent quarters. He moved out very well in profile & going away but was a little untidy in front. Hopefully this will strengthen with age. BPD.

2ND 3653 - Ambertail's Heels On New Shores at Senjiba (Imp Can) (Mrs A & Mr N Carrington). Preferred the head on this 9mo boy, he has a good forehand, good depth of chest & spring of rib, level topline & good quarters. Moving with a good stride, he needs to tighten up all through.

1115. Basenji - Open Dog

Entries: 6 Absentees: 1

A good class with lots to like about these hounds.

1ST 3666 - Ch Swanwite Take A Chance On Me ShCEx (Mrs I Legget). Good head, eye & expression on this mature boy, he has a good forehand with straight front & good feet. Excellent topline, depth of chest, spring of rib & underline, moderate turn of stifle & good hocks. He moved freely with soundness & style & presented a lovely picture both on the stack & the move. BD.

2ND 3663 - Ch Tokaji Nashville Rebel (Mrs D & Mrs P Hardy & Hallam). Super head, eye & expression, good neck & shoulder, level topline & is well ribbed back. Good depth of chest & underline & well made & muscled quarters, Unfortunately, he insisted on pushing himself forward over his front today on the stack. He was breath taking in profile movement & had good width behind but was not so tidy in front as the winner. RBD

3RD 3661 - Bushwacker American Hustle at Embeau (Mrs E & Mr D Grayson & Cullen). Not disgraced with his placing here.

1118. Basenji - Puppy Bitch

Entries: 2 Absentees: 0

1ST 3660 - Mawali New York New York (Mrs S Dunsdon). What a beautiful baby girl of 9mo, she has a super head, eye & ear, excellent forehand, straight front & super feet. Crested neck into excellent topline, underline & quarters. She was shown in super coat & condition & moved out freely in all directions with a good stride. RBB & BPIB.

2ND 3662 - Tokaji Memphis Belle (Mrs D & Mrs P Hardy & Hallam). Pretty girl of 10 months, she has a lovely eye & expression. Good neck, shoulder, topline, depth of chest & excellent hindquarters. She is finer all through than the winner, she holds her shape well stacked & on the move where she has a free & easy stride, just needs to tighten.

1121. Basenji - Open Bitch

Entries: 5 Absentees: 4

1ST 3670 - Ch Tokaji Moon over Miami with Mutoko JW (Mrs P Nash). Although alone here, this classy lady can hold her own in any competition, she just screams quality & is put down in cracking condition. Stunning head, eye & expression, superb forehand with crested neck, straight front & super feet. Level topline, short back with well sprung rib & good underline. She has a moderate turn of stifle, has exceptionally good muscletone & firm hocks. Sound & true out & back with an effortless stride. She captivated me & I was delighted to award her BB & BOB.

 1122. Basenji - Veteran Bitch

Entries: 1 Absentees: 0

1ST 3669 - Gooses Glint of Gold at Flugelberry (Miss E E Matthews). At nearly 13 this girl is an absolute credit to both her owner & the breed. She has a pretty head, with good eye & expression, good forehand, straight front & neat feet. Level topline & well-muscled quarters. She moved out well fore & aft with a good stride in profile. She showed her little heart out to a well-deserved BVIB.

1123. Basenji - Special Beginners Bitch

Entries: 1 Absentees: 0

1ST 3672 - Aheme Cinnamon Swirl for Justartee (Mrs J W Stratton). This lady was not too happy about being gone over, she has a pleasing head & expression, excellent neck & a good front. She was tense so was not holding her topline, good quarters she moved out well in profile. BSBIB.
