Tamsala Basenjis

Where health testing and excellent temperament are of equal importance.


MY FIRST BASENJI


KASPAR OF KARIBA
(Imp New Zealand)





Kaspar of Kariba (Imp NZ)

(NZ Ch Fula Kiwi of the Congo (Imp UK) X Belindii of Bulawayo)


Kaspar was born on the 24th May, 1968.

He went to join his best friend and son - Ch Tamaiti Tahi Taniwha -
at the age of 16.5 years.




Ch Tamaiti Tahi Taniwha

(Kaspar of Kariba (Imp NZ) X Ch Tamaiti Tahi Teina)


I lost Taniwha at the age of 11.5 years with kidney cancer.


Kaspar didn't want to live without his son, so a few days later,I let him go with him.


Kaspar and I had 11 different addresses in his lifetime

both in New Zealand and Australia.

Where I went, he went - he was my friend and confidante

- I shared my problems and worries with him -

and in return he protected me, and gave me his friendship.

He was the best $50.00 that I have ever spent.

I learnt so much from Kaspar

- both about Basenjis -

and about life and living.

It is because of all that he taught me,

that 50 years down the track,

I still have (and love) Basenjis.


All have their own personalities and little quirks.

But when they made Kaspar - they broke the mould!!

(Which was probably just as well -

I don't think the world could have coped with another one like him
