The Swedish Basenji Specialty show 2018 has come to an end and we had a lovely and hot day at High Chaparral!

We had a lovely weekend in Tvååker with great results! On Friday Nessie was BOB puppy out of 7 and Zolo best bitch with Nordic CC, BOB veteran and BOB out of 14! In the finals, both girls placed! Zolo as BEST IN SHOW 4 veteran out of 82 (!) veterans and Nessie as BEST IN SHOW 2 puppy out of an even larger class of puppies! This qualified her for 'Puppy Of The Year - all breeds - 2018', that will be held at Grand Hotel in Stockholm next spring. Zolo also went BIG-4!

On Saturday young Kaos made it all the way to best male with CC and BOS to Zolo who was again BOB veteran and BOB! Nessie was 2:nd best bitch puppy with HP and Fenris was 4:th best male. 3:rd best male with R-CC went to NO CH DK CH Storm "Echo", a son of our Pavlov. 7 puppies and 14 adults were entered. Zolo finished the weekend by going BEST IN SHOW 4 veteran from about 40 veterans! Thank you all for a nice weekend!

Wow, wow, wow... What a weekend we had in Borås! This weekend was going to be the last one in Sweden for Tammo who turned 2 years old two weeks ago and since he needed a CC after 2 years of age this was the chance for him to take his Swedish title... And he did it by going best male and BOS! Tammo can now call himself SE CH Shahrans Raspberry Ripple with 4 x CC's (with 4 x BOS) taken in the last 5 shows! Congrats to his owners Alice and Emanuel, thank you for letting us show him and good luck with your move to Germany! 6 months old Nessie was entered in puppy class for the first time and was BOB puppy out of 4! Entered for the first time was also 6 months old Trico who was 2:nd best male puppy with HP. Tilly won the intermediate class with CQ and Zolo was BOB veteran and BOB! Zolo then managed to go all the way in both finals with BEST IN SHOW veteran and BIG-1!

On Sunday we entered the SSUK club show and this was Rocky's day! Rocky, 11 years in December, who was entered just for fun, really managed to charm the judge and went all the way to BOS and beat Zolo for BOB veteran! Tammo was 2:nd best male. Nessie was 2:nd best bitch puppy with HP and Trico was 2:nd best male puppy with HP. Rocky later also went BEST IN SHOW veteran!

The day didn't stop there though as Zolo was going to compete for BIS at the KC show and SHE DID IT! BEST IN SHOW out of 2700 entered dogs at the SKK Borås nat. show 2018! Wow! Thank you all for your kind words and support, and off course to the judges Robert A Indeglia (breed and BIS), Andrzej Stepinski (Group) and Robert Harbin (BIS veteran) for thinking so highly of Zolo!

Zolo BIG-2 at DKK Roskilde Nordic show!

 


We took a short trip to Denmark, to enter the first day of the large three day shows in Roskilde, with Nessie, Zolo and Kaos. This would be the first time to spend some time with Kaos since he came back to Sweden and to practise for upcoming shows with him. He did very well going first in intermediate class with CQ. In the competition for best male he was beaten by four champions and ended up just outside placement (5:th). Nessie was BOB baby out of 4 and Zolo went all the way to best bitch with Nordic CC (her second one in two shows), Veteran CC, BOB veteran and finally BOB! 21 basenjis were entered. In a horribly cold weather she was later also BIG-2 from about 35 breeds in group 5! BOS was Storm, a son of our Pavlov, who became Danish Champion! Big congrats to owners and breeder!
