Faded Rose Basenjis
Faded Rose Basenjis began on January
12, 1994 when my first Basenji was born. She came to live with me at barely
6 weeks old. She was naughty from the very beginning. Her registered name
is "Stargazer's Belle Star" (Ch. Kabar's Blade Runner X Sonbar's Celestial
Stargazer), call name "Belle" or, as she is sometimes called, "Belle, The
Basenji From Hell". She is pictured below with my Miniature Schnauzer,
"Blazed Diamond In The Ruff", better known as "Blaze". As you can see,
she has the devil in her eyes. If you looked up the word naughty in
the dictionary, you'd see Belle's picture.
This is Belle at about 6 weeks, Blaze
is about 7 years.
Belle at about 7 months, Blaze 7 years.
"Why did Mommy bring her home?"
Belle began her show career in August
1994. She finally finished her championship in May 1998.
My second Basenji arrived in May of 1995.
His registered name is "Akuaba's KISA Timekeeper" (Ch. Akuaba's Tornado,
JC X Ch. Quita's Window Of Time), called "Dylan" after my favorite singer
Bob Dylan. Dylan started his show career in August of 1995 and completed
his American/Canadian championship by July of 1996. Dylan was a clown in
the ring. He enjoyed chasing his tail. Dylan accomplished a lot in his
brief show career. He was specialed on a very limited basis for half of
1996 and all of 1997. He was a Hound Group winning (Canada) and multiple
Hound Group placing (United States and Canada). He also finished 1997 9th
in the Top Ten breed wins with 24 Best of Breeds. Not bad for a dog less
than 3 years old. (And my first "special".)
This is Belle winning her first points
under judge Norton Moore.
This is Dylan shown finishing his
championship under judge Frank Sabella.
Basenjis are very intelligent dogs. They
like to outsmart their people. Being naughty and getting attention is fun
for them but, as you can see, they also can put the halos on quickly.
This is my favorite photo of Dylan.
This is Belle and Dylan relaxing on
1998 brought another addition to Faded
Rose. Her registered name is "Akuaba's Electra" (Ch. Akuaba's Scorcher
X Ch. Akuaba's Tropical Breeze), better known as "Lexy". Her main ambition
in life is to wag the curl out of her tail. She started her show career
in May 1998. In just a few short months, she has achieved several puppy
match Hound Group 1's and 2's, as well as several Best Puppy In Match.
She finished her Canadian championship on September 7, 1998. Her accomplishments
in Canada were:
5 Best Puppy In Group
2 Best Puppy In Show
1 Regular Group 1
1 Regular Group 2
1 Regular Group 3
Only Runner-Up in the Puppy Classic
in Dryden, Ontario
"Look at that stack!"
This is a photo of Lexy winning Best
Puppy In Show under
respected breeder-judge Cheryl Myers-Egerton.
Lexy completed her AKC championship
on July 18, 1999, under Anne Rogers Clark.

"Basenji's are like potato chips, you
can't stop at just one."
The latest "chip" is Taboo. Her registered
name is "White Wind's Faded Tigerose" (Ch. Akuaba In Corduroy X White Wind's
Butterfly Kisses). Taboo is a delight to own and our first brindle and
our first yodeler. She began her show career on June 27, 1999. On June
25, 2000, Taboo completed her Canadian championship, finishing with a Hound
Group 2 and a Hound Group 4.

If I try hard enough maybe I can get
this door open!
