Today Asali turned 1 year. We made a dog cake for her and give her new warm bed.
Happy Birthday sweetie!
At the moment Asali has first place by the points on temporary results for NCMA (Nordic Club Membership Award) 2012 for the Nordic Club annual award in the group "THE BEST JUNIOR DOG".
We are very proud of our princess!!!!
We completed another superb exhibition day. On Saturday, 17th December 2011 we were on Winter Winner 2011 Dog Show and on the Specialty Dog Show FCI 5 group, which was held in Celje, Slovenia.
Asali was entered Junior Class
and has achieved, so far, her best success:
At the Specialty Dog Show FCI 5 group, held the same day, she got all over again:
Excellent 1, Junior Winner, Best Junior of Breed (JBOB), Best of Breed (BOB) and two small cups and Junior Club Winner title!
Although we were only Basenji on the Dog Show we took the opportunity (as before) for ring training so that Asali become more comfortable with the atmosphere at Dog Shows. Now, while still youngster, our aim is for her to feel comfortable in the ring, to be relaxed and not afraid and we are on very good track to achieve it. Although in the first entering she was a little shy and restless at the second entering she come down and shown much better. Thus, in the BIS she stacks perfectly still with a nice trot and made us very proud.
Next month, 14th and 15th January, 2012 we will return to Slovenia, at CACIB Ljubljana 2012, and until then we’ll continue with the ring training!
