6 Introducing Introducing BOS of the 2013 BCOA National Sweepstakes about this issue George woodard BOW BOS Evergreen Basenji Club Specialty 5 pt major thank you Bo Bengston This issue celebrates the 2013 BCOA National Specialty. And there is much to celebrate dogs, photographers, volunteers, club members! We are fortunate to have access to the work of skilled photographers Laurie Gregory and George Woodard featured throughout this issue. Candid shots of dogs support the show stacks. The shots of dogs in motion be they racing, leaping, or trotting celebrate our breeds athleticism. Show Chair Brenda Phillips provided a summary of events and Bill McCann pulled together comments from some of the many volunteers who made the event possible. The random photos running throughout the pages are cellphone snapshots chronicling club-member Barbara Sauceda s (5Star) trip to the National with three of her Basenjis. She and her curious hounds kept a low key eye on the event. When starting to put this issue together, I considered running detailed information for only the Basenjis that placed in their classes, believing that reprinting the entire catalog was redundant and better made available on line. The idea had some support among the half dozen people I asked but many were ambivalent. Hence full results this time around. Let me know if you prefer otherwise. The club president was not able to compose a letter for this issue. In her stead Marianne Klinkowski agreed to share her view on mentoring a perfect introduction to this issue as mentoring and breed education is key to continuity of Basenji type. It isn t surprising that even among knowledgeable stewards of the breed the standard is often read with different emphasis. Overall that is a good thing. What is less desirable is a lack of agreement on terms used or a misunderstanding of characteristics described in the standard. In that light, I m certain you will enjoy Patricia Trotter s assessment of fronts, Doreen Duffin s Australian take on the standard, and the issues discussed in Points of View. I m delighted to include Jeri Crandall s judge s education essay written in Quiz your ability to identify terms associated with our breed s structure on page 97. Lively discussions are key to education and growth. History buffs know that political discourse has been offensive to downright volatile for hundreds of years. Art historians can tell a similar tale of artists 5star road trip to Nationals reviled in their life time and only appreciated postmortem. The BCOA and affiliate clubs, due to their long standing, are able to provide an opportunity for dialog and the history to offer meaningful mentorship in preservation of breed type. A final note: I ve taken to heart the comments, both positive and negative about the Bulletin, wearing my Editor hat and my Creative Director hat. While negative comments sting, they are welcomed. The Bulletin is a forum to address all issues, content and design included. To that end, I ve made balanced design adjustments in response to readers letters. The changes may not satisfy all and I ll continue to tweak the design but will leave it to a future editor to make wholesale changes.

8 Letters to the editor Photo Melody Henkel Fula, the one and only To the Editor, The Bulletin just keeps getting better and better. Congratulations and thanks to all for a really professional breed publication. I would like to note that the absolutely lovely basenji illustrated on page 15 in the January-March issue, and identified as an early Fula Basenji, is actually Fula, our breed s leading foundation dam imported and owned by Veronica Tudor-Williams. A review of this incomparable twosome s contribution to the breed would be welcome and timely. Thanks again for the great articles, top quality advertising and breed information. Sincerely, Margaret Sommer May 16, 2013 Getting on board Dear Editor, I am writing in response to Sandy Beaudoin s concerns regarding the appointment of Pamela Geoffroy as vice president after the resignation of BCOA President Carrie Jones. The primary reason Carrie gave for her resignation were demands on her time that significantly cut into what she could give to the position. Carrie s generous offer to remain on the Board as a director was appreciated. However, having served on the BCOA Board for the last three years, I know that being on the Board of Directors, no matter the position, is a time consuming endeavor. When life s demands get to the point that requires resigning from one position, transferring to a different position (with the potential to be time consuming as well) is not the best answer for all concerned. Nor is it in the BCOA s best interest to create any kind of precedent where future officers, finding their position not to their liking, harder than expected, or too time consuming, believe they can step down from their elected position into one of their choosing. Sandy s statement, There is no precedence[sic] for this particular scenario is incorrect as per the examples I gave in Ballot (reprinted at right). I identified two instances of a president resigning (Carrie s being the third) and three instances where directors resigned. In the absence of clearly defined rules, I based my vote on precedent; it provided a roadmap on how to proceed impartially. I enjoyed working with Carrie over the last three years. I have always found her to be determined and respectful in getting her views across and committed to the BCOA and our beloved breed. Sadly, she was unable to fulfill her obligations. The BCOA Board looked to historical solutions to determine how best to proceed. A concerted effort was made to insure impartiality. To imply that the Board has acted improperly or even worse, disrespectfully of the membership for personal gain or voting majority, does a disservice to the current (all volunteer) board. Sincerely, Linda Daves Siekert BCOA Treasurer as of 2011 BALLOT SUBJECT: Replacement of Vice President Postmarked March 20, 2013 Effective March 29, 2013 Siekert comments: The BCOA Bylaws clearly define how a Presidential vacancy is filled. All other vacancies are filled by the Board. Bulletin Board research through the last 5 (five) BCOA Board resignations show a clear precedent. Precedents which have been the Board picking the next highest vote count either from the vacant office runner ups (if applicable) or director pool (if applicable) of the previous election results Barbara Camp (Pres) resigned, Sandy Bridges (VP) moved to Pres., Linda Ehlers, was appointed VP. Linda was the top runner up for the office of VP in the 1988 election for the 1989 term George Woodard (Pres) resigned, Sal Wuornos (VP) moved to Pres., Karla Shreiber (Dir.) appointed to VP Board ran uncontested, no VP runner up or Director runner up to pull from Board went to the last contested election (2004 election for 2005 term) and appointed Andrew Sawler to Director. Andrew tied with Carrie Jones for the 7th Director spot but lost in the ensuing run off Wanda Pooley (Dir.) resigned, Brenda Phillips was appointed Director. Brenda was the top runner up for Director in the 2008 election for the 2009 term Sue Joyner (Dir.) resigned, Tonda Curry was appointed Director. Tonda was the top runner up for Director in the 2009 election for the 2010 term Carol Webb (Dir.) resigned, Jackie Jones was appointed Director. Jackie was the top runner up for Director in the 2011 election for the 1212 term. I always advocate following the rules and will look to the rules for guidance on how to proceed. In the absence of clearly defined rules, I will look to precedent for guidance; Precedents outline the best way to solve a problem without giving any Board an opportunity to purposely change it s complexion. Precedent shows the 2013 BCOA Board should be giving first right of refusal for the position of VP to Pam Geoffroy. The Bulletin a health hazard? Dear Editor, I was glad when my Bulletin arrived and I saw all the interesting articles it contained. However, I m afraid I won t be able to read much of this issue. I don t know if it s the font or all the glaring white space or both but it s very hard on the eyes. My eyes hurt and I was getting a headache after reading a few paragraphs. I m sure a large percentage of the membership is over 40 (or 50 or 60) and this print is very hard on old eyes. I can read the fine print on medicine bottles easier. I hope you are not going to continue with this font. Mary Lou Kenworthy Dear Editor, Each quarter, I look forward to receiving my basenji publications. Of late I have not been able to really enjoy the BCOA Bulletin. As we age I am resigned to using my glasses more and more for reading. Unfortunately, I am finding the size of the print and the excess of white boarders in the Bulletin are a major factor in my headaches from reading (this is with my glasses on). Also, on inquiring with fellow fanciers, I find that I am not the only one having these same issues. Is it possible to increase the font size and to minimize the amount of white boarders? I for one would be so much happier to once again reading through my copy of the Bulletin. This is the only publication I receive that causes this problem for me and it is one of many publications that I read quarterly/ monthly. Thank you for your consideration. Sharron Schmidgall Stonwyke Basenjis The Bulletin Looking Good Dear Editor, I recently received my new BCOA Bulletin magazine, and was very impressed by its new look! Kudos to all the staff! The design is contemporary, crisp and attractive! Congratulation again to all the staff! Bernie (and Brindle Basenji Zeke ) To the Editor, I just had to write to you and tell you what a great job I think you are doing with the Bulletin. It is attractive, good visuals, nicely laid out, and very interesting stories. Betsy Polglase in Tewksbury, MA, 26 miles NW of Boston, USA. Home of a senior citizen and two 4-year old adopted Basenji siblings: Buddy and Sweetie. To the Editor, As a member of the BCOA, I get the Bulletin so I brought the most recent edition to the meeting so the [ASFA] Board members could see it. They were very impressed by the high quality of the magazine and many of them commented on how handsome it was, the quality of the paper, the clean design and open layout, and the vivid colors. One of them said it was the best of the breed magazines he had ever seen. You should be proud of the work you and your staff have done to make it special and valuable to your members. I know I was proud to show it to the Board. Paul Bowlus-Root To the Editor, Congratulations on such a wonderful revamp to the Bulletin. The refreshing new formant and articles. I raced through the magazine just to see what else I would find. Thank you for taking over the editorship. Pat Bright To the Editor, Very nice job on the Bulletin! Great improvement. Really enjoyed the last edition focusing on performance nice to see the other side of what Basenjis can, and love, to do.

9 Contributing Editor Marianne Klinkowski steps in for the president From the president Opening Eyes & Minds We are proud of Grand Champion Eldorado's Akuaba One More Time Ch. Eldorado N Akuaba's Never Say Never x Ch. Eldorado's Ooh La La Smoky took home the CH Reveille Re-Up Sire of the Year award this year 15 champion offspring finished their titles during Meet all of Smoky s titled kids Am Can & UKC CH Timar's On The Dark Side Am GCH Akuaba N Eldorado Speed of Light Group Winner and 2012 National Specialty Select Bitch Our recent National Specialty brought home yet again the value of mentoring to both the mentor and the mentee. We had a very motivated group of judges in Auburn who saw our breed with fresh eyes and who embraced it fully and happily. They observed, they studied, they asked questions and we all profited from the experience. Mentoring can be eye-opening as student judges sometimes ask sincere but puzzling questions about various aspects of the breed standard that we tend to take for granted. For example, several years ago a provisional judge commented that she could not factor in the weight of the dogs in the ring because, as weight was not a disqualifying feature in this breed, she could not call for the scales and thus had no idea how much any of the entries weighed. A simple but workable solution to ensure that an important element of breed type would not continue to be overlooked was to bring out a number of dogs of approximately standard height and weight so the judge could calibrate her eye as to proper substance. Another time a provisional judge related the story of a sweepstakes that he had judged and how he was regretfully unable to reward an otherwise lovely dog because its head was different in that its muzzle did not come to a nice sharp point like all the others. In this case, the judge had studied the standard but simply did not understand the term rounded cushions. We now use a slide in the PowerPoint show to illustrate and explain exactly what this means. I m sure most of us have experienced something similar either while in the ring exhibiting or while mentoring. If we re fortunate, we can turn it into a learning experience and everyone walks away happy; if not, we take our lumps, shake our heads and hope that someday the judge will get it. When you think about it, those of us who breed, exhibit, do performance events or just live with Basenjis and watch them day to day as they evolve from precocious puppies to venerable senior citizens know this breed better than the judges who may see them only occasionally in the ring. We are the acknowledged breed experts and collectively we have a tremendous amount of knowledge to share. Each one of us has the ability and, dare I say, the responsibility to share our expertise, both with those who aspire to judge our breed as well as those who seek to further their knowledge with additional study. The judges do appreciate it and frequently comment on the friendliness and enthusiasm of Basenji exhibitors who go out of their way to share their much-loved dogs with student judges. And we all know the power of those precious wrinkled faces and warbling yodels as we introduce fascinated new judges to our funny and selectively sociable curly-tailed wonders. With everyone s help, our new judges will not only learn our breed s conformation in depth but they will learn to treasure the Basenji as we do for its striking idiosyncrasies and appealing natural charm.

11 Junior members share their impressions of the breed Junior Eye view The Wild Roots of the Basenji by Brooke Barker, almost 7 years old Brooke stays busy with competitive gymnastics, school, and her adventures with kindred spirit, Reveille BalleRina. Naughty Acacia Acacia is naughty when she digs in our new sandbox. All our dogs do the same thing whenever we add sand. Acacia also likes to steal our sand toys and chew on them, so we had to put up shelves in our play area to keep them away from her. by Ethan Walters, 9 years-old Ethan has been in Basenjis his whole life. He is looking forward to starting to compete in AKC Junior Handling this Spring. Topeka is Trouble Topeka, my wonderful Basenji, can always get into trouble. Now, you asked me when she is naughty. I can answer that question very easily, because Basenjis have a tendency to be bad. In the one picture, Topeka is ripping into a stuffed pony called Princess. A little girl gave that to me. I was mad, but I could not blame Topeka, because I had been playing with her and the toy. That caused her to tear it apart. But she was still naughty. One day, Topeka got out of our new house in Nebraska. I did not see it happen because I was in the shower. She might have opened up the screen door by slamming on the handle. Don t worry; we caught her when she came to us panting. After we put her back inside, we could not find the chickens. We saw feathers everywhere. We thought she had killed all the chickens. But do not fret; the chickens reappeared in about a day. Lots of feathers were missing. Checkers, the rooster, did not look like a rooster anymore. Before and after this incident Topeka would always want to kill the chickens. In another picture is Topeka is Death Staring the chickens from inside. The last picture is Checkers, the tailless rooster. I have shown you how naughty my Basenji is. And even though Topeka can be trouble, I will always adore her. Because that s how Basenjis sometimes act, B-A-D. by Cagney Ehlers Cagney started going to dog shows when she was six. She got her first Basenji at 10, a female pup she named Jerlin s Topeka. She trained and showed Topeka herself. Topeka, shown only by Cagney, finished her championship in March 2013 at age 15 months with three major wins and BOB over specials. From proud grandma, Linda Ehlers If the evolution from wild dog to domestic dog were rated on a scale of one to ten, the Basenji should rate about a seven. This little dog, whose ancestors sat by the thrones of Pharaohs in Egypt and whose cousins still sleep near the fires of natives in the dark jungles of Africa, continue to carry many traits associated with the wild dogs of Africa. The early explorers to Africa wrote of the Bush Dog, the small native hunting dog that wore a bell or rattle around its neck or loins and was used to drive game through the jungle into the nets of the natives. Several attempts to bring the barkless dogs from Africa to England were unsuccessful due to their death by distemper, and it was not until the late 1930 s and early 1940 s that enough native stock survived to establish breeding programs in England and the U.S. The trait of barklessness was the one most publicized when the basenji was first introduced to the public, and indeed we still refer to them as the Barkless Basenji. The Basenji does not bark, but makes any noise common to the average dog. In addition they have a distinctive chortle or yodel used to welcome owners or just sound off in exuberance. The breeding cycle of the Basenji differs from the average in that the females usually come into season only once per year. This is most often the months of September, October, and November with the bulk of puppies being born in November, December, and January. This is not an ideal situation for selling puppies and through selective breeding, some bitches now produce in the off season. During the breeding season there is a marked change in the personality of both males and females. They tend to become more aggressive, more vocal, and more unpredictable in stress situations. It has been my experience that if a puppy buyer [inexperienced with Basenjis] seeks to return a dog, it will be at the time of the dog s first breeding season. The personality change is difficult to explain to new puppy buyers. Only after they experience it for themselves and realize that it is a normal process in the Basenji are they able to cope with it. In the non-breeding or off-season, the testicles of the males may become smaller. This, along with their ability to retract one or both testicles from the scrotum in stress situations or cold weather, can cause a problem to judges. My solution is to move the dog down and back and recheck him. In most cases they will have descended; if not, the dog must be disqualified. By jeraldeen Crandall, 1970 The Basenji by nature is suspicious but highly curious. Anything new or strange is cautiously approached and thoroughly investigated. They tend to form strong ties with their owners and family but prefer to approach strangers on their own rather than being approached. Sudden moves, loud noises, beards, hats or just a person descending upon them head-on can cause a Basenji to pull back or shy. Fortunately there are very few vicious Basenjis. A little common sense in approaching and handling them will avoid any problems. The Basenji is a hardy, tough breed with a life span of years. They mature fully between two and three years of age, and hold their prime till eight or nine. They have few breeding or whelping problems and most visits to the vet are routine. Other than the few hereditary medical problems common to all breeds, the Basenjis does have a tendency to be allergic to some of the vaccines used for DHLPP and rabies shots. The reaction may not occur with the first shots, but in the case of rabies, particularly, a severe reaction can occur with the third shot. Caution and a veterinarian familiar with the breed s idiosyncrasies can be very important. Sight or scent hound has been a question asked may times. In 1970 the AKC stated the Basenji was a sighthound. For some reason this has never become common knowledge. I was surprised to come to Northern California and have my breed judged with the scenthounds at the matches. While this has never been a big point of contention with me personally, it does present a problem for some people. The Basenji has great speed and agility for a dog of its size. In the Northwest and South they have used Basenjis in lure coursing and racing. In the Midwest, they have formed pointer-type field trials for Basenjis in hopes of gaining recognition in that area. In France, the Basenji is classified as a terrier. Whether the Basenji was bred for any or all of these activities I have not idea, but selective breeding for any given one of these activities may well detract from the breed that is the Basenji. Obviously, the Basenji s role in the jungle was, and still is, to provide food for his master and for himself and to survive while doing it. I know a Basenji can stalk on his belly and pounce like a cat; hunt in a pack and run down game; point pheasant and quail; and track a deer across a mountain. I know a Basenji can run like a Whippet; jump like a deer; use his paws like a monkey; groom himself like a cat; and climb a chain link fence paw over paw. I don t know if the true Basenji will survive in the artificial jungle of the show ring. B 18 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 19

12 SPARCS are lit by James E Johannes and Lisa Saban New PRA Gene Identified in Basenjis By Kirsten Sigrist : BCOA HRC Chair, BHE Board member As most BCOA members are aware, Dr. Gary Johnson of the University of Missouri has discovered a single base pair substitution responsible for approximately 50% of all PRA in Basenjis. He has designated this mutation PRA-BJ1 and made testing available through Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). Test kits are available on line at basenjipra.html. The cost is $65 per test. This is a recessive allele, so only dogs that are homozygous for this allele will be designated as affected. Also, breeding recommendations by the BCOA for this mutation are as follows: Acceptable breedings Clear x Clear; Clear x Carrier; Clear x Affected Breedings not recommended Carrier x Carrier; Affected x Carrier; Affected x Affected Dr. Johnson, at the 2013 bcoa National discussing the pra test and the continuing search for another version. Photo courtesy of Jon Curby. This is a great tool for all breeders and testing is recommended for any dog which is to be bred. However, it is established that there is at least one other form of PRA in Basenjis. Because of this, testing clear for this form of PRA does not indicate that any individual dog is clear for PRA. Dr. Johnson has recently received funding from the Basenji Health Endowment to continue his research of PRA in Basenjis. He will be characterizing the development of the form of PRA associated with this gene. To that end he will be looking for younger dogs (under 4 years of age) whose PRA BJ1 test results show them to be affected. He has also been funded by the BHE to do additional whole genome study of Basenjis testing normal/clear for PRA BJ1 that have been diagnosed with PRA. He hopes to identify the genetic causes of PRA not covered by the PRA BJ1 test. The BHE is happy to fund Dr. Johnson s work and hope that BCOA members with dogs that fulfill his study requirements will do what they can to help him further his research. If you feel that one of your dogs would be a good candidate for either study, please contact Liz Hansen, B The first annual conference for the Society for the Promotion of Applied Research in Canine Science (SPARCS) was held the last three days of June in Redmond, Washington. The purpose of the conference was to provide a public venue for those interested in Canine Behavioral Science to hear the scientists speak about current research and ideas and have a chance to ask questions of the speakers. It also raised funds toward grants for graduate students and PhD candidates pursuing research in canine science. We were able to attend the first day and watch some of the talks online the last two days and we will give an overview of some of the talks. Each day had a specific topic, the first was on canine origins, the second on social behavior and emotions, and the last day was on cognition and development. The scientists presenting at this conference were Dr. Adam Miklosi, Dr. Ray Coppinger, Dr. Michael W. Fox, Dr. Marc Bekoff, Dr. Clive Wynne, Dr. Kathryn Lord, Alexandra Horowitz, and Dr. Monique Udell. Dr. Brian Hare gave a talk on his new Dognition work at Duke via Skype. At the end of each day all eight scientists presenting at the conference got together for a panel discussion and answered questions from both those attending and a global on-line audience. Questions came from a global audience attending via the web. Dr. Adam Miklosi, associate professor and the leader of the Department of Ethology at the Eötvös University in Budapest, Hungary spoke first. His talk was titled Do We Have a Wolf at Home or was Linné right from the beginning? Dr. Miklosi argued that while humans exerted selective pressure on wolf/dog populations resulting in genetic and phenotypic change this did not cause a change in humans. Rather than co-evolution it was one sided. Dogs may have contributed to human economic and cultural evolution. Dr. Miklosi also discussed if Linnaeus, who developd the binomial nomenclature (two name) system used by scientist to name animals, plants, ect., was correct in naming dogs Canis familiaris (Linnaeus 1758). Wolves were given the name Canis lupus (Linnaeus 1758). Some scientist have considered dogs a subspecies of the wolf and have used the name Canis lupus familiaris. Dr. Miklosi thought that Linnaeus was correct to place dogs as separate species from wolves because they live in two different habitats, very little hybridization occurs, there are marked morphological and behavioral changes in the dog, change of genetics, and no way for dogs to revert back to the wolf. Those that have gone wild, such as the Dingo, look like dogs and not wolves. Dr. Ray Coppinger is professor of biology at Hampshire College and teaches and researches animal behavior, especially canine behavior, and gave a talk entitled What if anything is a Wolf? He presented the possible pathways in the evolution of dogs. Humans settled down and garbage started accumulating near their habitation. This attracted some wolves. Those who had a short flight distance would be able to gobble down more food than those wolves who left at the first sight of a human. As their fear of humans lessened this possibly caused changes that resulted in the appearance of dog morphology and behavior. Dr. Coppinger discussed how this process could occur by using the Russian Farm Fox experiment as an example. He also discussed that so far the when, where, and how of the evolution of dogs has not been solved by genetics, paleontology, or anthropology. He went on to show problems with using genetics to date the appearance of species, such as a larger population will appear older than it is, genetic flow can cross and recross from different groups, and mutations cannot accumulate over time because they are limited to some number less than the population size. His next point was the problems with paleontology in regards to studying the bones of wolves and dogs which are not easy to differentiate In addition he discussed problems with the archeological evidence. The Natufian human and puppy dog burial is considered as evidence of the earliest known domestication of dogs. This is dated at 18,000 years before the present. Humans from this culture also buried other animals with their dead. Dr. Coppinger argued that the presence of the puppy in the Natufian grave does not prove dog domestication occurred at this time and suggested the best evidence would be a leash and collar bur- continued on page BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 21

He showed a picture of a leashed dog from ancient Egypt and noted that these type of pictures showed up in Mesopotamia and Egypt around 6,000 to 4,000 years before the present. Dr. Coppinger finished by suggesting that dogs probably originated 8,000 to 7,000 years ago when humans began to develop an agrian culture. This created a new niche for the dogs ancestor. The Old Souls of Basenjis Imagine! The man and woman whose DNA nearly all living people share in common lived 135 thousand years ago. This is the kind of news that amazes me, these discoveries about our ancient origins. Sometimes it is art rather than science that tells us about our deep past. Look at the 35 thousand year old cave paintings of animals in Chauvet, France. You see the power, the energy, the urgency the artists feel about the great living creatures, lions and rhinoceros in motion around them. The artists describe a spiritual world accessed through these animal paintings. Now consider our ancient and intimate connection with Basenjis. We have shared work, shared survival, and shared healing compan- By Bill Mc Cann Almost every man alive can trace his origins to one man who lived about 135,000 years ago, new research suggests. And that ancient man likely shared the planet with the mother of all women. The findings, detailed Aug. 1, 2013 in the journal Science, come from the most complete analysis of the male sex chromosome, or the Y chromosome, to date. Researchers believe the mother of all women likely emerged from East Africa. Tia Ghose, LiveScience ionships with Basenjis back into millennia past. Look at how our own individual relationships with Basenjis expand and grow and flower through our years together. The Basenji mind and the human mind are separate mysteries we will know more and more about as science advances. But beyond those wonders past and future, there is the present and the now when the I Thou, the interpersonal you me experiences we have with our Basenji, the affections and attentions we share together open up a spiritual space for us, sacred, ancient and living I cannot help but acknowledge the fire, the energy, the powerful living presence my Basenji is. How lovely to contemplate the great age and the immense dignity of this bond we have between us. B Dr. Clive Wynne is professor of behavioral psychology specializing in canine behavior at the University of Florida. His presentation was titled The Wolf Who Came in from the Cold. In his talk he argued that the evidence from genetics, archeology, anthropology and psychology suggests an origin for the dog of over 100,000 to 10,000 years ago with several possible locations from China to Israel. He also argues that dogs arose as helpers of the hunt and not from scavenging around our dumps. One very interesting observation that both Coppinger and Wynne agreed on was hunting dogs used to support tribe s in obtaining food average in weight from pounds. If they weigh less than 20 pounds, they are too small to be helpful in acquiring protein and it s more advantageous (energetically) to eat the dog for the much sought after protein. If they are over 40 pounds, the dog cost too much from an energetic standpoint in terms of food intake and again, it s more advantageous to eat the dog for protein. The happy median appears to be in the pound range, where it pays off energetically to have the dog support the hunter in gaining more protein through hunting, while it does not cost as much to support the dog. Dogs in this size range appear to be the ones that survive to support the hunter. Additional talks on Saturday and Sunday focused on behavior, emotions, cognition, and development. Researchers discussed the current research that is exploding on canine behavior and cognition. Dr. Fox discussed new advances in nutrition and integrated care of dogs. Kathryn Lord discussed interspecies social behavior. Alexandra Horowitz discussed the dog s point of view and the interplay between human perception and dog behavioral cues. Dr. Horowitz discussed the need for humans to play more with their dogs. They also discussed problem solving on pet dogs, shelter dogs, and wolves and how the environment and upbringing play into the development of problem-solving skills. Dr. Udell explained how we as owners can be more intentional in helping dogs fulfill their cognitive capacities: the cognitive development and potential of your dog is influenced by the relationship you have with the dog. Their research showed the dogs that have a strong positive bond with their owners have far more potential and stronger cognitive capabilities. It was a fascinating conference over a broad range of topics in cutting edge canine research.

14 5star road trip to Nationals It s What s Up Front that Counts By Patricia V. Trotter originally published in the AKC Gazette If we wish to achieve our goal of breeding quality dogs in fewer numbers, we must set our sights on producing and rewarding dogs with correct front-end assemblies. In my February column, I discussed front-end assembly and the problems associated with incorrect, upright shoulders. Because so many world-class dog people are concerned about the disappearance of correct forequarter structure from the gene pools of our breeds, the subject merits further discussion. The unfortunate fact is that straight shoulders, as incorrect as they may be, appear to facilitate winning in two ways, which makes them very seductive. First, they provide picture-perfect posture, making the dog seem to always be on because it cannot let down and lower its suspension as easily as a well-angled animal can. Therefore, the dog requires less effort to project the kind of stand-up show dog persona that may impress judges and ringside observers more than the correctly angled dog does. For example, consider the three setter breeds, which were bred to crouch near the birds while the hunter quietly approached with nets to throw over the dogs and the birds. These flexible sporting dogs further utilized their correct angles to lower themselves and crawl out from under the nets in that pre-gun era, leaving the captured birds for the huntsman. Now flash forward to a lineup of setters standing tall and proud in the modern show ring. Chances are that only a precious few have correct shoulder angulation, while there are others that stand out because they are jacked up on incorrect, upright shoulders that contribute to the façade of the show dog. The second way in which straight shoulders facilitate winning is by making it easier for the dog to move straight and with what many perceive as more trueness on the coming-and-going movement. Because the range of motion of the straighter-angled dog is much less than that of the correctly angled one, the reduced distance of forward extension and follow-through shortens the stride, diminishing the room for error. The longer stride provided by the correct shoulder has much more extension and follow-through. Consequently, this greater range of motion allows more room for deviation from absolutely straight movement. Side Gait If the tempting elements described above are indeed seducing breeders and judges into subconsciously rewarding animals with incorrect fronts, how do we turn this trend around? By concentrating on breeding correctly structured forequarters and valuing them more highly. Our expectations for most breeds should be to produce dogs with correctly sloping shoulders that are accompanied by equal length and angle of upper arm. The juncture of these two bones should be close to a right angle. Such a correct forequarter assembly, when complemented by correct hindquarter assembly, would assure efficient, easy and unlabored side gait, displaying the picture of type in motion. Being able to see side gait is much more vital to our assessment of breeding stock than dogs standing on the line or dogs moving straight down and back. Experts studying the side gait of the dog are able to judge how the dog would endure in the field at work. Those dogs able to cover the most ground with the least amount of effort will normally outwork others on a daily basis, as well as on a longterm basis continuing into old age, simply because their correctness accommodates exercise. Because the show ring is not a demanding physical test for an athletic dog, it is difficult to evaluate athleticism in the show ring. Small rings actually support the straighter-shouldered dogs by asking little of them and even hindering their more angulated competition. This is because the animals that are correct never have an opportunity to exhibit their liberty of motion and their efficient, ground-covering side gait before they run out of ring space. In such rings the dice are loaded to favor the straighter-angled dogs that immediately go down and back with restrained and true footfall, even though they may not have the desired side gait. Dogs with well-angled fronts and rears need space in which to warm up. It takes them a few steps to get into the rhythm of body control that presents them doing a down-andback at their best, something they are routinely denied by the limits of time and the confines of space in the show ring environment. An Unfortunate Phenomenon An unfortunate yet interesting phenomenon is occurring in many of our breeds today on a regular basis. Lovely dogs are showing up that have angles of one kind in the forequarters (usually straight) accompanied by angles of another kind in the hindquarters (usually well angulated and occasionally extremely angulated). This, of course, contributes to an exaggerated, sloping topline and takes balance out of the equation. Unhappily, if the incorrect straight front assembly is also forward set, and it usually is, it is able to accommodate the drive provided by the correct rear end, resulting in a picture of side gait that can fool the evaluators. In other words, the front does just enough work to stay out of the way without supplying anything positive to facilitate function. How this type of imbalance contributes to the fatigue factor of an animal at work is another question. Two laps around the show ring simply do not tax any animal enough for us to observe the results of such poorly assembled parts. It is only by observing dogs at work performing their original job description that you can appreciate the disservice breeders render their breed when they keep only show ring performance in their mind s eye. Breeders who strive to produce a correctly constructed animal with the athletic ability to perform its function will need to study a composite of the bones and their angles to obtain an uncomplicated skeletal picture. Utilizing this study process, along with a thorough assessment of gait and physical usefulness, will lead to better dogs with correct front-end assemblies, dogs that are able to tolerate exercise and work. The ideal dog, when standing, will have a well-sloped shoulder with good return of upper arm that brings the elbow under the top of the shoulder blades and well under the rib cage. (Even though a straighter-angled dog may have its elbow under the top of its straight shoulder, the elbow will not come well under the rib cage but will instead be too far forward.) When moving, the ideal dog will exhibit cleanness in coming and going, and efficiency when viewed in profile. Prioritizing If we must sometimes make compromises when we breed, we must value correct and efficient side gait (which is not to be confused with the fastest gait) more if we are to turn the trend around. If we demand correct structure and efficient movement, whatever gaiting trade-offs we must make will not come at the expense of side gait. We will accept that these dogs require more work to learn body control and must spend more time warming up before they go into the ring. And we will never forgive straighter-angled dogs for being anything other than true on the down-and-back. Because of their reduced range of motion, when such animals move poorly coming and going they have more serious conformational defects than a simple lack of angulation. I have not addressed the issue of body proportions in this article, although I am aware of the quandary that judges of a square breed are presented with when choosing between a rectangular dog with the most efficient side gait and a correct, square dog that covers less ground. These are difficult choices that should not be made without factoring in desired type. Type is always the major consideration. The suggestions in this article for improving front ends apply to what we might consider the normal, athletic canine performer, a description that applies to most breeds. There are, however, many exceptions to this rule because some dogs are bred to do specific jobs that require a somewhat different conformational configuration. I plan to deal with some of these breed-specific differences in future articles. Meanwhile, our collective sights must be set on rewarding dogs with correct front-end assemblies if we wish to achieve our goal of breeding better dogs in fewer numbers. From the great beyond, such 20th-century experts as the famous Alva Rosenberg would approve and encourage us to proceed.b 24 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 25

15 Judging the Basenji George Woodard 5star road trip to Nationals by Doreen Duffin Makuba Basenjis Victoria The Basenji is a very ancient breed which dates back to the days of the Pharaohs. He is both a scenthound and a sighthound and is, to this day, highly prized by the natives in the Southern Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo for hunting primarily flushing game. Two parties of Americans traveled to Zaire during 1987 and 1988 and after rather daunting treks into the jungle, brought back several adults and puppies which they purchased from the natives. As the Basenji is still used for hunting, and as we do not wish to change nature s handiwork that has survived for so many thousands of years, the show ring Basenji must also have the conformation and movement to enable him to do his job. The words that immediately spring to mind when viewing a good Basenji are elegance, aristocratic and gazellelike grace. The Basenji is known as the barkless dog, but he is certainly not mute, being capable of all the other doggy noises, plus a delightful yodel or chortle when happy. He can be very vocal, making lots of noise when in a stand up-argument with a kennel mate, but that is harmless swearing more noise than damage but he is also well known for not particularly liking his own breed, and will sometimes have a growl at unfamiliar Basenjis. The handler should ensure that this situation does not arise, but if it does I am positively of the opinion the dog should not be penalized. He is a remarkably clean dog, hates being dirty, and possesses no doggy odor. He is extremely intelligent, independent, alert, and affectionate to those he knows and loves, but can be rather aloof with strangers. Another feature of the breed is the fact that Basenji bitches come into season only once a year which is around autumn, thus the puppies are born May, June, July in the Southern Hemisphere. It is not commonly known, but it is something of which judges should be aware, that, similar to the Dingo, Basenji males also come into season about February/March/ April (it is virtually impossible to artificially obtain semen from a dog out of season ) and that can sometimes cause a change in temperament making them a bit agro particularly with other male dogs. Therefore, some exhibitors do not show their dogs until they return to their normal happy selves when the season time is over. Basenjis are more at ease being examined on a table and not on the ground, and never approach the dog from the rear without warning, as his reflexes are very sharp. You must remember he has had to survive for many thousands of years and he didn t do that by being complacent, especially when his life may have been at risk from a sudden wild animal attack. Approach him positively, from a slight angle towards the head and speak softly to him as you approach. Don t lay your hands directly on his head rather let your first feel be of his 26 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 27

16 under-jaw area then you can pass on to examine his teeth and head. A Basenji, like many other breeds, does not like being eyeballed, which can be taken as a threat, so don t stare into his eyes for any great length of time. And please talk to him, or his handler even if it is just to ask the age. You should be aware that Basenjis are notorious for tucking up their testicles in cold weather. If that happens, run your fingers gently but firmly along either side of the sheath and that should bring the testicles down. First impressions The first impression should be of a finely boned, lightly built dog, high on leg compared with the length, looking poised, alert and intelligent. The head, with its pricked ears and wrinkles, is proudly carried on a well-arched neck. The deep brisket runs into a definite waist, the back is short and level, the hindquarters are strong and muscled with a moderate turn of stifle, and the tail should be tightly curled to either side. He should present a picture of a well balanced dog of gazelle-like grace. Head The Basenji head is characterized by the wrinkled forehead, which is a feature of the breed without wrinkles the head has lost Basenji type. The skull is flat, well-chiseled and of medium width, tapering gradually towards the nose, with only a slight stop. Too much stop gives a foxy expression and too little gives a Bull Terrier appearance. The distance from the top of the head to the stop is slightly more than from the stop to the tip of the nose, giving a muzzle slightly shorter than skull. We do not want a muzzle too short, which, because of the curvature of the zygomatic arch, usually goes with cheekiness and a broad head which we do not want. Neither do we want a muzzle too long. The skull and muzzle are on parallel planes. As mentioned, wrinkle is a very important feature of the breed and will only be present when the ears are erect. The wrinkle should be fine and profuse, not coarse nor heavy as in the Bloodhound, as this would hide the fine chiseling of the skull. Side wrinkles are most attractive and desirable at the outside edge of the eye, but they must not be exaggerated into dewlap. Wrinkles are more noticeable in puppies, as they do diminish slightly as the head grows and matures. Because of the lack of shadowing in tri-colors and black and whites, look to ensure that he has wrinkle, as it does not show up as easily as in the red and whites and brindles. A black nose is desirable, but during winter, some noses will develop a pinkish tinge. This should not be unduly penalized. While the leather of the nose should be black, there will often be pink pigmentation in the skin above or on the sides of the leather, especially if the dog has a white muzzle. This is skin pigmentation and is not to be penalized. A scissors bite is required with very neat lips held closely to the teeth with no flews. A small amount of strong under-jaw should show as he is a hunting dog, and for the size of him, has an extremely strong mouth. Eyes A great deal of Basenji expression depends upon the eye which should be small, almond shaped and obliquely set with an inscrutable, intelligent, farseeing, yet gentle expression, set fairly well apart. Color should be dark hazel or dark brown with dark or black rims. Large, round, light or staring eyes are most undesirable. Ears Ears should be small, pointed, erect, slightly hooded, of fine texture, very pliant and mobile, and set well forward on top of the head. They are set high on the head, but with a wide base as this will produce the forehead wrinkling when alert. Large low set airplane ears hanging off the side of the head are foreign to the breed and completely ruins head type. If the head is coarse and cheeky, you will usually find the ears large, wide set and heavy. While the Basenji is an alert breed, please do not expect his ears to be erect at all times. He is also very intelligent, therefore does get a bit bored with the show ring, as he feels he has been there, done that. Do endeavor to alert the dog at least for a short time to ensure the presence of wrinkles, and the best way to do that is when the dog is on the ground, not on the table. Neck The head is set on a strong neck of good length, which has a graceful curve from the back of the head to the shoulders accentuating the crest. This crest is usually more noticeable in dogs than bitches. The head should be well placed so as to give a lofty carriage, and on no account should he have a short stuffy neck or be ewe necked. The neck is slightly full at the base of the throat and f lows smoothly into the withers, which are the highest part of the topline, in a smooth graceful curve not at a sharp angle. He does not need an overlong neck, but it must be in balance with the overall dog and the correct length of neck helps to give the dog elegance and gazelle-like grace. Forequarters To acquire the well laid back shoulders as stated in the Standard, the dorsal vertebrae in the area of the withers must be long, with the top of the blade attaching between the first and second vertebrae. It is almost impossible to attain a 45 degree lay of shoulder it is more likely to be 50 degrees or more to the horizontal. The upper arm is long and set at approximately a 70 degree angle to the horizontal. We do not want shoulder and upper arm angulation at 90 degrees, as that would set the elbow further rear-ward than is desirable for the Basenji. This open angle and upper arm length positions the elbow slightly rearward and level with the bottom of the chest. To bring the forequarters into static balance the straight front pastern slopes slightly. Support is then directly over the foot. In all likelihood the more open shoulder angulation with correct length of upper arm contributes to the Basenji s ability to excel at the sighthound double suspension gallop. Elbows are tucked in against the brisket to form a straight line with the ribs, and the legs continue in a straight line to the ground, giving a medium width front. One should get a picture of an inverted U between the front legs and not an inverted V. Only a slight forechest in front of the point of shoulder is required as a heavy, protruding, pigeon-chested front is completely wrong and detracts from the desired grace and elegance of this breed. The legs, while strong and straight, must be finely boned. The forearms must be very long which, while enabling him to excel at the fast gallop, also adds to the dog s elegance and gazelle like grace. There should be sufficient slope to the pastern, which is of good length, to give flexibility without weakness, and the thickness of the pastern should be just slightly more tapered than the leg above. Bone in dogs should have slightly more substance than in bitches. Any suggestion of heavy bone and short leggedness utterly ruins the grace of the breed and should be penalized. An important feature to remember is that the Basenji is not a dog of equal distance from withers to elbow and elbow to ground. There is slightly more distance from elbow to ground than there is from elbow to withers, and that is where the appearance of him being high on leg compared with its length comes in: He has more length of leg than body depth. Body The brisket is let down to the elbow, and the ribs are well sprung, deep and oval (not barrel shaped nor slab sided) to allow the elbow free movement for his far reaching stride, and the deep brisket runs up into a definite waist, i.e. a good tuck up. The body is balanced with a short, level back. Back length is the distance from the withers to the hip bones, and, while the distance from the withers to the last rib should not be too short thus depriving the dog of heart and lung room, the length of loin should be short to give the overall impression of a short back. Again, remembering that the Basenji is a hunting dog which must be capable of twisting and turning suddenly, the loin should not be too short as to hinder him in this function, nor too long to show slackness and weakness. Any length of body should come from the sloping shoulder and the well developed hindquarters. The Basenji is basically a square dog, i.e. the distance from the front of the sternum (breast bone) to the point of buttocks (pelvis) should not exceed the height at the withers. Hindquarters Hindquarters must be strong and muscular, free from droop or crouch, with long second thighs and well let down hocks, turning neither in nor out. Stifles are moderately bent and over-angulation and straight stifles are to be avoided. There should be enough angulation to prevent action from being in any way stilted and to allow the dog to cover the ground with good drive. Short second thighs and straight stifles cause the hind legs to act as props rather than instruments of propulsion. It is most important that there is width and strength across the upper and second thighs. Musculation should appear both inside and outside the thigh, so feel for it. Cow hocks, open hocks and sickle hocks should, of course, be penalized. The Basenji is short bodied and its working gait is the collected trot. Any increase in angulation at the stifle beyond moderate creates over-reach and optical as well as functional imbalance. Maximum propulsion without increasing angulation is achieved by ensuring that the rear portion of the pelvis is long and the sacrum horizontal, to provide ample attachment for the muscles that extend downward and draw the hind leg rearward. 28 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 29

17 Feet Feet should be oval in shape, small, neat and compact with thick pads and well arched toes. Nails should be short and strong. Dew claws are usually removed but this is not mandatory. Hare feet, cat feet, or big, round feet are undesirable having in mind the breed s purpose as a hunter. Tail The tail is set very high and placed right on top of the hindquarters with the buttock curving out considerably beyond the root of the tail. This gives a strong reachy appearance to the hindquarters and is referred to as the shelf. The tail curls forward and down from the root, to lie as closely as possible to either side of the hip. The curl can be either a single or a double curl, and if it is a double curl, it will naturally be tighter than the single curl. The set-on of tail is more important than a double curl. A tail carried along the center of the croup is a minor fault and should be penalised accordingly. It is important to see the tail when the dog is on the move, as a Basenji will sometimes hold his tail away from the back or drop it if he is upset or frightened. This should settle down when the dog is in motion. Important: never uncurl a Basenji s tail when examining him, as some tails do have kinks in the bone due to the tight curl and it is very painful and upsetting to the dog if uncurled or handled roughly. Should it be necessary to examine the set-on, just lift the tail gently, and particularly look when the dog is in motion. Coat The coat should appear velvety to the touch and there should be a good sheen. The skin texture is important. It should be very pliant and that can be easily felt by lifting the skin gently on the back of the dog. Again, remembering the breed s purpose as a hunter, a pliant skin can protect him as if he is caught on briars or bushes he can escape with minimal loss of skin. Scars should not be penalised. The coat is short, sleek, close and very fine. During winter the majority of Basenjis, especially those that are not house dogs, grow an undercoat for protection. It is up to you, as the judge, to decide the placings when confronted with out of coat dogs. Remember that the coat will improve as the weather improves. A bad front or a weak back will not improve! Color Colors are red and white; black and white; black tan and white with tan melon pips and mask (tri-colour); black tan and white without tan melon pips and mask, and brindle (black stripes on a red background, the more clearly defined the better). The desired red is a bright orange red, but may shade to a bright chestnut red. Those colours are far more attractive than the light red, sandy or brown shades, which are permissible but not preferred. Black and whites should have a glossy black/blue coat without any trace of brown. The black tan and white without melon pips and mask is what we call the recessive black & white. He will often have only a few tan hairs inside the ears and a slight fringe down the back of the thighs and around the vent. It is a permitted colour, but because there are so few of that colour born, a judge will rarely see it, and may be confused as to whether it is correct or not. It is entirely correct providing the black of the body coat remains black and is not peppered through with tan or white hairs. This also applies to the tri-colour and the black and white the body of the dog should be pure black. Intermingling of black hairs on a red coat giving a sabling effect is incorrect and should be penalised accordingly. The tri-colour has tan melon pips over the eyes, tan cheeks, a fringe of tan where the black joins the white on the legs and tan around the vent. The tan should be a rich red and not a pale straw colour. Four white feet, white chest and white tip on the tail are also required, while a white blaze, white collar and white legs are optional. Part or the whole of the legs can be white, but if one foreleg is white and the otheris half white, take a careful look at movement, as it can give an optical illusion that the dog is swinging out one leg. Dogs with too much white have always been a subject for debate. Some dogs have been of such outstanding virtue that they have won in spite of an all white hindleg or white shoulders, but generally speaking, such markings distract from the overall picture of the dog and should have some bearing on the placement in the show ring. The same applies to a dog without white on a foot, or with white on only two or three toes. That dog can still do the job for which he was bred, and if he is excellent quality, then give careful thoughts about your placings. Ideally the white should not reach above the hock or elbow, and apart from the optional collar, there should be no white on the body. White markings in the overall body coat of the dog should be penalised. The white blaze may continue down and around the muzzle, and in some cases may have a fine white line joining the blaze and over the skull to the collar. This is quite acceptable, but a wide white patch going right over the skull, or a blaze which includes part or all of the eyes is not desirable as it ruins expression. A white collar means white neck markings whether or not they be a full wide or narrow collar, a half collar, or just a white spot on the neck. Also a red spot in a white collar is acceptable. I cannot recall ever seeing a Basenji without a white under-belly and that is perfectly acceptable. The white is often carried through to form a thin line along the inside of the thighs and this is quite acceptable as long as it is just a thin line. White markings should not have any ticking or red or black hairs. This should not be confused with spots of pigmentation on the skin itself, which many Basenjis have, particularly those with very fine coats. These should not be penalised. Also do not penalise a red dog if he has some black hairs in the tail. That shows that he carries the tri-colour gene. Gait The gait of a Basenjis is a swift, long, tireless, swinging stride and is a joy to behold. It is an easy, effortless extended trot that can be maintained for hours. They are basically trotting dogs, but are capable of short bursts of speed and many are capable of a double suspension gallop with all four legs off the ground at once over short distances. Their working gait is an effortless collected trot and they must expend only a minimal amount of energy, as in their natural habitat they are sometimes required to hunt all day without collapsing. The gait must be effortless, tireless, and far reaching with good rear drive, and the topline remaining level. He will tend to single track as speed increases. Any toeing in, pounding, padding or swinging out of the legs is a fault. A hackney gait, while eye-catching, is definitely wrong. Little tiddly stilted steps are also wrong and must be penalised. The rear leg should reach well under the body while the follow through of the opposite leg should extend about twice the distance behind, allowing the paw to be seen at full extension. Always move a class of Basenjis around the ring to observe side movement length of stride, rear drive, level topline and the swift, long, tireless, swinging stride. Size and Weight The ideal height and weight for a dog is 17in and 24 lbs; for a bitch 16in, weight 21 lbs. The old standard stated that an inch either way should not penalize an otherwise well-balanced, correctly proportioned specimen and we still accept that. Size must take height, length and weight into consideration; the three combine to produce a balanced, correctly proportioned dog. The typical Basenji is finely boned, carrying no more weight than is absolutely necessary. The Basenji is built for endurance at the trot not all out speed and that is reflected in his square proportions, light bone and small size. An overlarge dog is often accompanied by heavier bone and a longer body. He may well appear more impressive and strong, but he has sacrificed the endurance capability of the smaller, finely boned specimen. He will most likely appear coarse, and coarseness is completely taboo in a Basenji. Endurance is the criteria, not strength, and the requirement to move with effortless grace separates the typical lightly boned Basenji from dogs that must expend a greater amount of energy at the trot. SUMMING UP The Basenji must be an elegant, finely boned, aristocratic, well balanced dog with gazelle like grace. He has a fine head with profuse wrinkle, small high set ears, crested neck of good length, very long forearms with well padded oval feet, well laid back shoulders, deep brisket with well tucked up loins, short, level back. Strong muscular hindquarters with a moderate turn of stifle and a tightly curled tail lying over either thigh. Above all, he must move with an effortless, swift, long, tireless, swinging stride. If you can find all that, together with the correct coat and colour, then you will have a good Basenji.

18 Breeder-Judges comment on where the breed is headed, challenges judges face in applying the standard, and if they see a need to establish fault disqualifications Points of View As one of Basenjidom s senior judges, I will express my opinion on the three topics requested. Each topic could easily run 500 words, but I will try to keep it short. The subject of breed disqualifications in the Basenji Standard, for me, is a flat no. A size DQ may be needed in a giant or toy breed to maintain breed type, but numerous DQ s in a breed standard lead to Our standard already includes the fault judging, where the dog traditional disqualifications applicable with the least number of to all breeds and I don t see why we faults wins, instead of the would need any more. Now, if merle or dog with the most virtues. long-haired Basenjis suddenly appear As a presenter of BCOA in the show ring, I think I would want to judges education for many reconsider my position. years, it was evident to me Marianne Klinkowski that the breed background of prospective judges had a lot of influence on their concept of a good Basenji. The focus on coat, color, markings, tail curl, and amount of wrinkle frequently outweighed questions on head proportions, balance, angulations, conditioning and gait. Convincing new judges When I mention that not to look for the prettiest face, but judge Basenji ears should the dogs as small tough hunting hounds resemble a Shiba capable of a hard day s work is the real Inu more than an challenge. Getting all the answers right on Ibizan Hound, I often the written test doesn t mean they can apply get exclamations of it in the ring. surprise. The late 70 s and 80 s were exciting times Penny Inan to be showing Basenjis. There were different styles that were usually identified by Kennel names such as Cambria, Reveille, Khajah, Woz, Akuaba and Betsy Ross to name just a few. We thrilled to the effortless movement of Nyakatii, JR, Mamba, Strut, Jasmine and Luckalot. Entries were large and competition was keen. Judges were placing the Basenji in groups and new fanciers were drawn to the breed. As the 80 s closed, a number of changes were starting. Air travel was more common, artificial insemination more available, health problems in the breed recognized, new native blood introduced and a decline in the number of older Kennel names and faces. All of these factors produced a gradual change in the Basenji bred for conformation. Coats became finer, brighter in color, Non-breeder-judges sometimes, white markings more symmetrical. but not always, have a hard time Substance and bone was sacrificed for finding the square dogs in the ring a higher on the leg, finer bodied look. and often underestimate the substance required by our standard. Head type evolved from flat and chiseled to a softer more rounded feature Marianne Klinkowski complete with a fuller more rounded eye shape. Muzzles have more taper and less rounded cushions, teeth are smaller. The lovely arch of the neck ends sharply into the withers and forelegs are not set well under the body. Unfortunately, this fault is common in most breeds as handlers and judges expect dogs to race around the ring with heads held high. Temperaments are softer and youngsters much better socialized. Not all these changes were sudden or abrupt or even obvious unless you have been around a long time. I think of the Basenji I see in the show ring as a homogenized and sanitized version of the bitch I bought in 1964, not worse, not better, just not quite the same. Jeri Crandall Newer breeders of today seem to be interested in having the most athletic and best hunting dog which was not what the earlier importers were seeking. They wanted a small, clean, attractive and quiet dog for English apartment dwellers. Penny Inan 5star road trip to Nationals Clockwise from top left Mamba, Nyakatii, Lockalot, JR, Strut, Jasmine.

19 Points of View Exhibitors & breeders comment on where the breed is headed, challenges judges face in applying the standard, and if they see a need to establish fault disqualifications Common misconceptions or misunderstandings of Basenji type can be painted with two different brush strokes, the first being the large generalities of overall appearance, shape, outline, size, and style of movement. The Basenji is a square animal. This characteristic is so fundamental to correct Basenji type that already in the second sentence of our standard it is described twice, in two different ways. The first words of the sentence are It is short backed, followed by appearing high on the leg compared to its length. A square shape with a short back is so distinctive to correct Basenji type that it is pointed out before every other characteristic other than small, short haired, and hunting dog from Africa in the f irst sentence. Unfortunately, a Basenji that is actually square The Basenji is a square breed and should appear high on looks unusual; almost all Basenjis in leg. Long and low dogs will the ring today are varying degrees of have prettier side gait but rectangles, not squares. A glance at that s not what our standard the open space under the dog tells: calls for. is it the area from front legs to back Steffie Cheng legs, abdomen to ground a square or a rectangle? The late, great, and wise Anne Rogers Clark wrote that a judge should consider the genetic drift of the breed, the area where the breed is most out of alignment with its own standard, the most universal and extreme fault, and should give heaviest weight to this fault in making her selections and placements. In Basenjis, at this time, it is squares and rectangles, rectangles and squares. I have even heard some exhibitors opine that our standard must be wrong about the square dogs, because a short backed, square dog cannot move out so well as a longer backed, rectangular one. And it is true: rectangular dogs have more room for the Big Gait, the wide swinging arc of movement that has become all but a requirement for group placements. I m going to stick my neck out here, however, and note that when I started in Basenjis over 40 years ago, I never saw the current trendy Big Gait. The perfect Basenji gait was described as effortless and floating. The dogs that were shown to me by my mentors as having the correct gait were light on their feet, exquisitely balanced, the arc of the front legs the same as the arc of the Some judges don t understand the fine back legs, both making a perfect points of correct movement, believing a triangle tilted neither fore nor short restricted stride is correct as long as aft. These dogs had well angled it is balanced. shoulders and upper arms of Carol Webb equal length, so that no lifting at the elbows, common now, was needed; the dog got its float by straightening the angle and extending the upper leg and shoulder. Our standard describes Basenji movement as a [s]wift tireless trot with a stride that is long, smooth, [and] effortless. To my eye, many winning Basenjis have a stride that is impressively swift and long, but are lacking in tireless and especially effortless. Some of the dogs who fly around the ring, legs reaching out nearly parallel to the ground, are working far too hard. Their stride is flashy, showy, but mechanical and requires an extra effort to lift at the elbow, without covering the ground. I ve seen a moderately moving dog catch up to a showy one on the go round, not making near as much effort. Along with and closely related to Basenji gait is head carriage, which should be high and proud, scanning the field for game or other things of interest. A Basenji should not move with its neck stretched out level with its topline, but should carry Trends in size come and go and are easy to correct. Shoulders set too far forward and straight fronts are trends that are more difficult to correct. I also see prettier heads and easier temperaments, more suited for living in our world. Carol Webb his head high, ideally with ears perked forward. Too many dogs lower their heads and charge forward in mechanical windup toy mode. Look for the effortless, look for the float. If you are lucky enough to see it, you won t forget it. I should also say a word about size and bone. Again, back to the first sentence of the standard: the Basenji is described as small; in the second sentence, as lightly built. Then the fourth sentence uses the terms [E]legant and graceful. I realize that size varies throughout the country, but sometimes I wish we could have a weigh-in before entering the ring. Males are supposed to weigh only 24 pounds, females 22 pounds. Many many males are 26 to 28 pounds, and some even 30 pounds. In this company, a proper size dog looks diminutive, and many an excellent small bitch is passed over for an oversize male for Breed, because, I ve been told, the male will look more impressive in the group ring. And this brings me to the second group of misunderstandings and misconceptions judges have today of Basenji type, the ones painted in tiny brush strokes, the details, where the devil is, as the saying goes. The Basenji is a very different breed, on its own branch of the canine genetic tree. And it should look like it. Different. Not an elongated Beagle; not a truncated Ibizan. The Basenji should have an exotic, distinctly African look, as different from a pointer as a Bongo is from a white-tailed deer. I exaggerate only a bit to say that if a passerby asks What is that? and is not even sure it is a dog, that Basenji has breed type. Too few judges give proper weight to the breed type details, other than wrinkles. When I met Veronica Tudor-Williams, one of our breed founders, and we looked at dogs together, she always went to the tail. What a delightful high set tail and such a cute little bum! she would exclaim. A perfect tail is set right on top, where the I don t want to see disqualifications topline is still level, and the point but deviations from the standard of the buttock should extend well should be penalized. behind root of the tail. The tail Steffie Cheng should then shoot sharply forward, not upwards, then forward, and god forbid the tail angle backwards slightly before going up and forward! The perfect tail lies so tightly on the hip that no daylight shows through the curl. The set and lie of the tail should be far more emphasized than they are, the judge should walk UP the line of exhibits, looking at tails, just as they walk down the line, looking at wrinkles. The correct tail is extremely important in Basenji type, yet it is probably the most important overlooked detail in the breed. A number of trends in the breed were covered above: squares and rectangles, side gaits, size and bone. There are a few more to be addressed. Basenjis are losing their wrinkles, I ve heard from two judges this year. Yes, it s true. But remember I wrote that Basenji type is exotic, African, different? The wrinkle is in the details of head type. Basenjis are losing wrinkles, but they have also lost the exquisite chiseling of the face, the little eyebrow ridges, the puffy cushions on the short muzzle, the far-seeing expression all of which add to the exotic appearance of the breed. The subtle losses are going unnoticed. Muzzles in the breed are mostly too long; a muzzle half the length of the head is simply too long. Ears are mostly too large, some extremely too large. The correct ear is small, high set, slightly stiff, pricked and leans slightly forward toward the nose. The appearance should be one of extreme alertness and interest. I am convinced that a bow and arrow hunter could use Basenji ears to sight game, shooting between the ears. About ten years ago, the predominant fault in the breed was a short upper arm, which led to the rapid, choppy mechanical sidegait. This fault is being corrected. Also improving is the front gait coming at you. At a National a few years back, fewer than ten Basenjis actually moved true. Many were waving every which way, and the rest were doubletracking, some extremely widely. Now most are fairly correct, with a few still double-tracking, but not as extremely wide as before. A more recent fault, what I call the broken top line, continues to be common but on the decline: instead of a smooth, strong top line, all of a piece, one plane, from withers to root of the tail, many Basenjis present a significant dip where the spines of the backbone change direction, as if there was a hinge. All that said, I am not in favor of adding disqualifications to the Basenji standard. It seems quite reasonable, as the present standard states, that faults be penalized in proportion to their severity. Chris Maxka Judges all seem to want a curly tail. We want it too but the tail set is more important than the curl itself. Steffie Cheng 5star road trip to Nationals 34 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 35

20 Russell Hendren class act and great friend by Judy Stahl The phone rang yesterday and I was told that Russell Hendren had passed away. I was aware he was ill, but couldn t imagine this very vital man could be gone. Not long ago while reading the premium for the Santa Barbara Kennel Club s upcoming show I noticed a trophy being given to honor a true gentleman, Tom Stevenson, one of my favorite judges. Russell Hendren fits very nicely into that same category. He was liked by everyone, funny and interested in the world around him. I spoke with him after he moved to a lovely place in Washington, where he had his horses. He was looking forward to his next judging assignment. Bob Mankey, Cambria Kennels, was Russ s mentor. Russ volunteered to assist Bob at shows and what a learning experience that was. He learned how to condition dogs, handling skills, and general care for Basenjis. In 1967 Russ made his first trip to Westminster. He met Damara Bolte and her dogs, including Re-Up, whom Russ so admired. Russ s first Basenji was from Cambria Kennels in the mid sixties: Cambria s Khentaminta. Cambria dogs were the beginning of Russell s show and breeding program. He had great success with Ch Cambria s Asari. In the mid seventies, Russell imported Jolie Cuckoo Song D Alverne from the south of France to expand his breeding program. Russ and I met in the early 1970 s. He became an active member of the BCONC, serving on the board many times and we became friends. There was a group of BCONC members who did the Oregon Circuit each year. We met in Anderson, Calif. for the first show and caravaned to the next. We all camped at the fairgrounds or a local campground, except Russ. This was not his cup of tea; he d rather stay in a hotel and meet up ringside the next day. Breeding under the kennel name Asari, Russ produced many champions. One year at Golden Gate Kennel Club he had his dog Envoy (CAN/AM Ch Asari s Envoy) in the ring. Envoy was beautiful but a tad naughty at times. On each go round, Envoy jumped and grabbed the cardigan sweater Russ wore. Russ just kept moving and Envoy kept jumping. The judge must have seen the dog with four feet on the ground because he won that day. Top Hendren with Ch Cambria s Asari (b. 11 Nov 1971 Kazor s Ilu x AM Ch Cambria s Balia Yangambi) Bottom Hendren winning BOB under Thelma Brown with CAN/ AM Ch Asari s Envoy (b. 27 Jul 1981, AM Ch Absinthe s Red Rocket Bellair x Asari s Neferteri) What an exciting life he lead. Born in Yakima, Washington in 1942, he joined the Navy at 17. He became a Navy corpsman, then an operating room tech and surgical assistant. He continued his education and became an RN with two masters degrees in nursing. In 1962 he went to the US Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. He was part of a medical team that went to Honduras during a medical crisis and was part of an underground operating team that went to Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis. When the first Gulf War began, he was a reserve Army nurse but thankfully never was called. Finally, after urging from his family, he was convinced he had done his part and was discharged. He was fortunate to be a world traveler, and not in the military. His dogs would be dropped off at my home while he was gone. I had five of my own, but they all tolerated each other. Australia and New Zealand were part of one trip and he met the Basenjis there. His trips to England were exciting for him. He met the Stringers, Merrie Cardew, Elspeth Ford, and of course, Veronica Tudor Williams many times. I still have the red leather wallet he brought me from Ethiopia and he always brought back stamps for my two sons, both avid stamp collectors. I was privileged to hostess some of Russell s dinner parties. What a great time everyone always had. I remember walking in the house and following the most delicious smell coming from the ktichen. He had hollowed out a pumpkin and filled it with meat and vegetables. The pumpkin served as the serving dish. He was a great cook and loved making fantastic meals. Wesley Wagner, a BCONC member and long time friend of Russell, touched base after Russell s passing. He had many tales to share. Wesley recently made a trip from Hawaii to see his friend and was glad he had. Russell was staying with a friend for whom he had done some house sitting and he stayed on with her when he became so ill. The Basenji world has lost someone who had a great affection for the breed and those that knew him, an even greater friend. He was a class act and will be missed. B Ch.

The following judges and fanciers attended the National and completed our educational program: Col. Harold Brizee, Paul Chen, John Gaidos, Sylvie McGee, Susan Paine, Faye Strauss and Rita Webb. The National was followed immediately by the Dog Judges Association of America Hound Institute in Houston, TX. The DJAA seminar/workshop was attended by the following judges: Anne Barlow, John F. Booth, Danny Bussard, Prudence Hlatky, Michael Loller and Mary Miller. The success of both seminars and workshops was due in large part to our dedicated breeders and exhibitors who shared their wonderful veterans with our prospective judges and brought their stunning young hopefuls to our in-ring judging exercise. Sincere thanks to everyone who participated! A new topic introduced at the annual meeting concerned the possible use of the ramp when judging our breed. Currently, the Basenji is considered a table breed by the AKC and judges must examine our dogs only while on a table. Some other breeds have added the option of a ramp; is this something we would like to consider? B Junior Showmanship Committee by Sharon L. Unrau Overview The year 2013, marks a year of excellent accomplishments within our breed club and more specifically, the area of AKC Junior Showmanship. The year s diverse highlights include the following: An outstanding 2013 Westminster Win (Finalist) by Emalia Williams exhibiting DC Jasiri-Sukari John Tri-Volta SC, bred by Julie Jones and Kathy Jones. Congratulations Emalia! An addition of two junior showmanship articles written by Thomas Meade for the periodical, The Modern Basenji (Wanda Pooley, Editor). Thomas is enjoying lure coursing with his new dog, Epic Select In Your Face SC, bred by Becky Blansett and Tracy Leonard, D.V.M., in addition to limited showing in the junior showmanship ring. He is traveling and assisting a professional handler on a regular basis. Elizabeth Edgerton recently qualified for the Limited Junior Showmanship Class at The Westminster Kennel Club 2014, receiving seven Best Junior Handler placements (so far) this competition year. She shows several breeds in Junior Showmanship, including a Basenji. She continues to travel and assist a professional handler on a regular basis and works with her family at A Place for Paws. Recent Basenji Junior Alums: Retention in the Breed Ciara Cassell continues to successfully exhibit/breed basenjis, in addition to additional breeds on a regular basis. She is currently working at American s Animal Clinic as the practices Office Manager and Vet Tech near her home in Texas.

B Social Media Committee By Clay Bunyard The BCOA page on Facebook, facebook.com/basenji.org, has continued to demonstrate a steady growth in exposure with another 212 likes since the last committee update for a total of 1,602 (May-July). If you are a Basenji breeder who is currently listed on the BCOA website breeder directory and who also has a Facebook page for your kennel, please contact Clay Bunyard, so that your page can be linked to the BCOA page on Facebook. Linking the pages together provides an opportunity for greater exposure beyond the BCOA website. Also, if you are interested in helping the committee identify content to post on the page, please contact Clay Bunyard. We are always looking for informative and entertaining information to share on the page related to any aspect of living with Basenjis. B 5star road trip to Nationals Mid-Atlantic Basenji Club 2013 Fun Match Results by LeeBeth Cranmer The Mid-Atlantic Basenji Club held its 42nd annual fun match in Point of Rocks, MD, on June 2, The turnout this year was wonderful. Thirty-five Basenjis and their owners participated in the Fun and Parts Classes judged by Kimberly Brown and the Conformation Fun Match judged by Julie Dugan. In 2011 the club added companion work clinics in the morning before the Fun and Parts Classes. They have been a great success. This year s clinic lead by Liza Lundell and Jane Johnson was on the Beginner Novice Obedience. Jane and Liza did run-throughs with their basenjis and then broke attendees up into small groups for more intensive workshops. After the clinic, the Fun and Part Classes commenced, followed in the afternoon by the Puppy and Adult Fun Matches. Jane Johnson kept the rings running smoothly by offering her services as a steward. Bernadette Conner helped match chair Gail Dluzeski keep the prizes flowing into the ring. Scotti Slonaker helped take registration and more people then I can name in this small space volunteered their services for set-up, the potluck luncheon and clean up. I wish to thank you all, but I m afraid I ll forget someone s name if I try to list you all. Results and pix follow.

Basenji Club of Southeastern Wisconsin By Clay Bunyard, President Considering our 18thAnnual Independent Specialty in Ixonia, WI on July 26 was only a few weeks after the BCOA National Specialty, we had a nice sized entry for both sweepstakes and the regular classes. Lisa Marshall, Arendahl Basenjis, judged the puppy and veteran sweepstakes and Dr. Edna Martin judged the regular classes. The results of the specialty can be found in this issue of the Bulletin. During the annual meeting following the specialty, the election for the officers and board of directors was held. Our officers are Clay Bunyard, President; Laura Mae Hesse, Vice-President; Lisa Marshall, Secretary; and Lisa Lemberger, Treasurer. The members of the board of directors are Jan Cook, Karla Schreiber, and Rande Mathers. We also want to thank the officers and board of directors for volunteering their time to the club. I would also like to make special note of Janet Ketz who is has served as BCOSW secretary for many years. Following our club picnic in August, the last major club event for 2013 is our NOTRA racing trial held on November 2 and 3 at the Greater Racine Kennel Club in Caledonia, Wisconsin. 5star road trip to Nationals BCOSW 18th Annual Independent Specialty SWEEPSTAKES REGULAR CLASSES JUDGE: Ms. Lisa Marshall BRED-BY EXHIBITOR DOG JUDGE: Dr. Edna Martin PUPPY DOG 6-9 MOS 1 BOSP SIGNET KNIGHT S CRUSADE Owner: Brenda Cassell, Ciara Cassell, Gary & Wendy Bell 1 RWD 2 SPRING WILLOWS REACTION TIME Owner: Laurie Owen KALEONAHE S CAIRO BRED-BY EXHIBITOR BITCH Owner: Allen Breyer, Kristen Breyer 1 FADED ROSE ME CATCH N BUTTERFLIES & Kyle Cabral Owner: Kristine A.

Laurie Gregory george woodard Friday July 12 NOTRA The first official event of the Basenji National Specialty was the National Oval Track Racing Association (NOTRA) Race Meet. Oval Track Racing is an optional part of the Basenji National specialty, but has enjoyed growing interest: with the excitement of a horse race as the dogs break from boxes and juggle rail position through the turns, and are judged purely on who crosses the finish line first. We were pleased to have a very large entry of 24 starters which resulted in six national points (the most possible) for the High in Meet Basenji.

29 Laurie Gregory Laurie Gregory Saturday July 13 African Stock Exhibition A Basenji-unique event, the African Stock Exhibition (ASE) showcases native African imports and their decedents in classes divided by age and sex, just like a regular dog show. In addition, the ASE catalog features extended pedigree information and historical information about the dogs origins. This year s event was hosted by the Willamette Valley Basenji Club, who spared no attention to detail the ring was decorated with African shields featuring the names of imports from the group. Long-time breeder Donna Lubbe clearly enjoyed her assignment, selecting for Best Puppy half-african bitch FoPaws Lukuro Genie Graffalo, breeders Kevin and Therese Leimback and Dr. Jo Thompson and owners Lori OBrien, Therese Leimback, and Dr. Jo Thompson. Best Adult was UKC/AKC Ch Sinbaje s That s Wavy Gravy CDX SC AX MXJ RE, and Best Veteran was her mother FC MACH Eldorado s Y s African Sinbaje RE SC GRC FCh, both owned by Linda Siekert. Laurie Gregory Laurie Gregory george Woodard Laurie Gregory July 14 Obedience Trial The BCOA National Specialty Obedience Trial was held on Sunday morning with Judge Mary Jane Shervias. The Basenjis all performed quite well in the challenging environment (dirt floor!), with particularly inspiring work in Utility from Linda Siekert s girls Feigh and V, and in Sub Novice Judy Lange with 14 year old Griffey. Many less experienced obedience handlers were inspired to continue to work with their Basenjis on these advanced skills!

The other breed entries not only contributed extra income and an experienced worker pool, but more importantly a little breathing room for Basenji handlers as compared to prior national specialty trials. Still, with 24 Basenji entries the National Specialty feeling was strong; and Basenjis made us proud! Of the 31 qualifying scores earned that day, seven were Basenjis earning four new titles and placing in their classes among all breeds! It was our pleasure to have Carol Mount from New Jersey as our judge I think we ll see her back in the Pacific Northwest soon. photos this spread, unless otherwise noted, by george Woodard Breeder-owner-handler Linda Siekert and a score of 100 and 3.94 yards per second.

The program was open to all Basenjis entered in National Specialty events as long as they qualified in a Lure Coursing event, completed a Conformation evaluation, plus qualified in at least one of NOTRA, Agility, Obedience or Rally. Feigh, fc mach Eldorado s Y s African Sinbaje cdx sc re fch grc, took home the trophy for most Versatile Basenji during the 2013 BCOA National Specialty. Feigh and owner Linda Siekert competed and qualified in Lure Coursing, Obedience (High in Trial), Rally, Agility (High Scoring Basenji in Jumpers with Weaves), and in the conformation evaluation. Fifteen other teams also competed in three or more events as contenders for this award very exciting to have so many All-Around Basenjis entered at the National! 58 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 59

32 July 15 Conformation, Dog Classes Judge Judy Webb, approved for Basenjis in 1992, confidently assessed the 45 dogs presented to her. The Bred By Exhibitor class was by far the largest (17 dogs) and it was from this class that the judge found her Winners Dog, handled by Pat Cembura. Judy liked him so much she gave him Best of Winners in the Best of Breed competition.

33 Annual Banquet The banquet was moved outdoors due to the nice weather all week and a large number of people signed up for the buffet of prime rib, chicken, side dishes, and desert. Mother Nature surprised us, keeping the Auction crew on their toes by threatening to rain on the one of a kind donated bells, photos, and artwork. However, good fortune was on our side. The storm stayed to the east and unfurled a rainbow on the last night of the National Specialty.

35 Brenda Phillips, 2013 chair, Wraps it up photos this page by Laurie Gregory George Woodard The 2013 BCOA National was held at Argus Ranch for Dogs, a privately-owned facility in Auburn, Wash, about 60 minutes southeast of Seattle. Owner Holly Leale has developed a dream dog-events facility which hosts indoor or outdoor agility trials nearly every weekend of the year. All National events were held on site at Argus. The RV Campers in particular enjoyed never having to leave the peaceful Green River valley in the shadow of Mount Rainier. To make the site suitable for our event in any weather, some extra infrastructure was required the VIP porta-poties with running water and flushing toilets were a highlight for many! Tents were rented to provide shade (or protection from rain). Water dispensers and bottles, provided by Crystal, plus catered lunches allowed exhibitors to stay on site with their needs met for the entire day. The hospitality volunteers in the Welcome Center bridged many needs, be it directions to a laundromat, a hot cup of coffee, or smoked salmon and wine on Saturday evening. In partnership with a local agility events planner, we were able to arrange a practice opportunity for Agility, Obedience, and Rally in the same building that would be used later in the week for the National Specialty. This was possible because it was on a day without AKC events and more than 24 hours before the start of the Obedience and Rally trial. For a fee, out of town Basenji exhibitors were able to practice in an unfamiliar building and on different agility equipment. The income from practice was donated to the Basenji National Specialty general fund. Seminars and health clinics focused on preventative care and the human-canine bond: Physical Conditioning for Optimal Performance and Tellington Touch for Enhancing Performance gave participants tools to apply to all sport venues. Dr. Cindy Geisler, DVM offered chiropractic services (donating all proceeds to the National), Stephanie Jones LMP provided canine or human massage, and Reiki Masters Mona Rowbottom and Patrick Corrigan provided energy healing sessions. The well-attended Intro to Nosework workshop, led by Lisa Voss, gave everyone just a sniff of their hounds natural talents. A show superintendent brings knowledge and skills that few host clubs have the experience to go without the 2013 group was no exception. The cost of a full service show can be significant, so with BaRay Show Services guidance we purchased a Package Show: BaRay accepted all the entries and prepared all the associated paperwork and catalogs, then handed it over to the host committee to execute. The 2013 committee purchased ribbons, prepared sweepstakes prize envelopes, provided ring equipment, and identified an on-site show secretary authorized to process move-ups, make corrections to judges books, and prepare the final AKC reports. By taking on this work, the host group saved thousands in superintendent s fees. Without our volunteer committee this could not have happened. Communication was surprisingly difficult given all the ways to reach people: print mail, magazines, websites, text message, chat lists, Facebook, etc. While getting the word out to everyone in the Basenji Fancy regarding plans for the National and upcoming deadlines was a challenge, it was just as hard to keep our committee of over 40 people in four different states informed at all the times. In the end, the 2013 National was a triumph of volunteers across the country working in concert, surging past the rough spots and delivering a stellar event.

36 George Woodard On the 2013 National National Specialty volunteers talk about Auburn 1 Andrew Sawler came home from the 2013 BCOA National Specialty in Auburn Washington, full of praise for his hosts. He said he was delighted with the National itself, describing it as a very well managed effort by an especially experienced Basenji community. I got in touch with Auburn volunteers who worked on the National Specialty and asked for feedback. Bill Bowlus-Root offered this warm summation: I have some wonderful memories and lasting impressions of the 2013 BCOA National Specialty held at Argus Ranch in Auburn. The setting was beautiful, in a valley in the Washington countryside surrounded by forests and farm fields. We had wonderful weather all week long. The real zinger was the double rainbow that magically appeared across the dark purple skies above the delicious banquet and auction. Even for Washingtonians, it was a memorable sight. The folks who came from all over the country were wonderful. It was a pleasure hosting them and making sure their needs were met. Everyone seemed to enjoy their time, visiting with old and new friends, talking about the day s events, chatting about the dogs they d seen and, of course, bragging about their own. And oh the dogs! What a magnificent congregation of Basenjis! Who could not be impressed seeing the procession of proud champions entering the ring for the Best of Breed competition? Watching the Top 25 Competition a parade of the finest was amazing. The Puppy and Veteran Sweepstakes were a treat because we got to see where the breed is heading and where it has been. The African Stock Exhibition clearly demonstrated that recent additions to the stud book will have a strong and welcome influence on the direction of the breed. The Junior Handling competition showcased the talents of several up and coming handlers. And of course, there was Obedience, Rally, and Agility to show us that Basenjis actually can be trained (if you have enough patience to work with them). What an amazing breed! The NOTRA and AKC Lure Coursing, combined with the ASFA Lure Coursing Specialty and Judging Seminar hosted by the Evergreen Basenji Club that preceded the BCOA events were outstanding. The conditions were just right for the dogs to put forth their best efforts. The competition was keen and the hounds met the challenge, many of them turning in the best performances of their careers. I have to say a word about the trophies. The theme was etched glass, and they were quite beautiful, especially when they caught the rays of the sun. Each of the items was substantial and a worthy symbol of a notable achievement in a dog s career. Finally, I d like to tip my hat to the organizing committee. They did a great job of anticipating the needs of their participants and making sure they were comfortable during their stay. Preparation, coordination and communication among the members ensured the events progressed smoothly and at the right pace. They took their cue from the National Specialty Committee Chair, Brenda Phillips, who handled every situation with a calm and reassuring smile. And that made everyone else smile too. Lisa Saban also noted how favorable the weather had been. Most areas of the country were going through some weather extremes, either really hot, or lots of rain, and high humidity. The refreshed look on guests faces when they stepped into the degree weather with little humidity and a sunny sky was nice to see! And the wonderful banquet outdoors with a double rainbow over us! Only in the Northwest! Bryan Gregory said Chuck Bagnell put together one the best catered banquets in spite of the challenges outdoors and under the threat of rain. 2 Lisa Saban said the performance events seemed to dominate the National, and spectators were able to see the full versatility of the Basenjis. I was particularly impressed with Linda Siekert s dogs. They were great performers, but what impressed me most was the relationship between Linda and her dogs, one of mutual respect and caring. The dogs wanted to perform and it was a relationship and working partnership that was a real joy to see. Brenda Phillips also talked about Linda Seikert and her dogs performances, what I find remarkable about both performances is not the skill or ability of the dog we ve seen that before. But these dogs are happy and confident while working and the people ringside were saying I didn t know that was possible and maybe I should try some of that which is exactly what a national specialty showcase should inspire. Amen to that, Brenda. 3 Laurie and Bryan Gregory were heavily involved behind the scenes, Laurie as official photographer, Bryan with the field and obedience events. Up at 5am nearly every morning. Up late, as Laurie downloaded and processed that day s photographs. Bryan said, I always enjoy meeting up with fellow breeders and friends, just wish we had more time. As it was they hardly touched the groceries they bought. They did not even have time to eat the box lunches they had ordered. The box lunches became dinner. They were taking dog class win photos past 7 pm, hustling to outrun a low sun and harsh shadows. It was Tues, before they were able to relax and enjoy showing off their half Africans which did well in the show. Wednesday they watched the breed competition. Bryan said that he always looks forward to being able to actually evaluate the dogs at a national. It takes a ton of effort, many hands to host a BCOA national specialty. You miss out on things. It s awful. But the memories can be so sweet. Hurray for Chair Brenda Phillips, her team of volunteers, and our Northwestern community! Speak well of them, fellow members. They did us proud! by Bill McCann B 68 BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) visit us online at BCOA Bulletin (JUL/AUG/SEP 13) 69
