Tamsala Basenjis

Where health testing and excellent temperament are of equal importance.

 


WE SALUTE -

OUR BASENJI GRAND CHAMPIONS


With a  grateful thank you to the dedicated owners,
who took the time, and had considerable expense in
achieving this feat.
There have been others also deserving of this accolade,
but the Grand Champion title is only a reasonably recent innovation,
 and not all owners have the time to devote to this achievement.

Sox was the first male Basenji Grand Champion,
and the first show dog for his novice handler/owner Carol Smith.
Living in Darwin, Carol had to contend with the "tyranny of distance",
 but Sox had a magnificent record of multiple Allbreed BIS/RUBIS and Group wins.
Sox also represented the Northern Territory ,in Victoria,
 for the Contest of Champions for the top Show Dog in Australia.
Sox was renowned for his extremely sound movement,
and although only 16.5" tall, he could hold his own against all the top competition.

Morgiane was one of Heather house dogs when she lived in Tasmania.
When she was posted to her next job in the Hunter Valley,
her friend Heather (a Samoyed breeder) asked if she could keep Morgiane.
As Heather knew how much "Samoyed Heather" loved Morgiane, she agreed.
Morgiane has been campaigned (with the Samoyeds)
and is Heather's first Basenji showdog,
and Grand Champion.
Morgiane is renowned for the fact that she hated other Basenjis,
 but loved the white "fluff balls".
Strange dog!!!

Ferret is placid, laid back, and sees no reason to stir himself up
when others around him are sparking up.
Why not just accept everyone?
A fun dog, who adores "smells" - after shave, hair shampoos, perfumes.
He is a pleasure to have around!!

Lara was a trial for Heather throughout her show career.
Very determined to go her own way,
and do things as, and when she wanted to.
Often her time line and Heather's did not coincide!!!
Once finished her show career, Lara retired back to me,
where she tried to upstage her mother Mary
(unsuccessfully I might add!) as "boss bitch".

Although Andie is not a Tamsala Grand Ch, he deserves a place in the list,
as he had several first's to his name -
the first brindle Grand Ch,
the first American import Basenji with an Endurance Title,

Andie has now returned to the USA,
where he is now a Dual American Champion.
