We have been again at the race court at Mammendorf and there we met Marion & Tsula and Camilla & Ciara for the end of the season.
At the first run, all 4 basenjis did run together, means Msumari`s Aza Aminouh (r/w, ~ 2 Jahre), Loki`s Iloua (r/w, ~ 6 Jahre), Jangua G´Tsula (b/w, ~ 11 Jahre) & Liljeborg`s Dan Galina Of Phoebus (r/w, ~ 6 Jahre) und Aminouh was the fastest!
Aminouh & Iloua did the second run by themselves and they had as always a lot of fun!
No photos this time, but a short video!

Besides this, there is a new HALLOWEEN-photoserie of Iloua, Aminouh & "Beau" in the gallery!



We had a great & sunny autumn-sunday, and we went to the racecourt for the last time this year, I guess.
It was still quite misty and cold (1°C) during the first race, but the sun came out for the second round.
This time, it worked out very good with the muzzle on Aminouh! The first try in summer was a desaster, because she only tried to get rid of it and didn`t run. But in the meantime, she is even more excited about running, that the muzzle didn`t bother her anymore! Great!
Some photos can be seen bolow!
Besides this, we took some photos in the autumn evening sun of Iloua & Aminouh which can be seen in the gallery!

Great news came yesterday from Poland!
Msumari`s Aza Aloua won her class at the international dogshow at Poznan with
Exc.1 & CAC and is now new Polish Champion!
She is the first adult Msumari`s Champion! (the others are Msumari`s Junior Champions)
Super, well done, congrats to Dorota, Tomek & Aloua!

Msumari`s Aza Amina & her friend Dante have been in holidays in the netherlands & her owner Angelika Joswig has send us wonderful photos which can be seen in Aminas gallery! Thank you for the photos!
There are as well new photos of Msumari`s Aza Aloua which can be seen on her own homepage!



We have benn sucessful at Lausanne (CH) the last weekend!
On saturday, 15.10.11, Msumari`s Ayo Azibo aka "Beau" unfortunatly gets only very good 1 in the intermediate class under the judge I. Beradze (GE) , but Msumari`s Aza Aminouh gets in the intermediate class V1, CAC, CACIB & BOB!
On sunday, 16.10.11 "Beau" gets  V1, CAC & CACIB in the intermediate class under the judge R. Spörr (A), and Aminouh in the intermediate class V1, CAC, CACIB, BOB & BOG3 under the judge J-C. Klein (F)!
So it was well worth to wake up that early on saturday (2.30h - uuuah) and to wait for the group contest on sunday!
Besides this, Aminouh & "Beau" both got with the CACIB on sunday the qualification for Crufts 2012 in England!



In September we have been again in Austria for one week and we had a great time with beautiful sunshine. We enjoyed the warm autumn weather and we have been outside and in the mountains a lot.
In the neighborhood of our domicile there is now an australian shepherd puppy, and the girls will meet him more often in the future. Till now, only Aminouh met him, because Iloua isn`t that thrilled about pups.
Photos can be seen in the gallery/holidayphotos!



Msumari`s Ayo Azibo aka "Beau" is back in Switzerland again with his owner Nora, after he stayed with us for a bit longer summerholisay. It`s a quiter now in our small pack.
The combination of 2 girls and one boy is not that easy, specially when the dogs run free and when we meet other (male) dogs.
The girls are getting more quiet, because they are getting in season soon, and the boys are getting much more excited about this!
But anyway, we miss this little big man and we had a great summer together!
I took lots of photos of them - coming soon!



On saturday last weekend we met Dani, Matthias und their two Basenjis Zuri & Thabo at the zoo at munich.
They are for holidays in bavaria, and finally, we managed to meet each other.
The dogs loved the zoo animals although they drove even more crazy about a squirrel running free at the entrance.
"Beau" (Msumari`s Ayo Azibo) relized, that there exist more female good smelling basenjis - sweet Zuri - and I didn`t know, how perseveringly a male Basenji can whine - the whole afternoon in the zoo!
After the zoo we went to a traditional bavarian beergarden and in the evening we had barbeque at home. My basenjis had to stay in the house - Zuri & Thabo have been in the garden with us.
Sunday, we went all together to the racecourt at Mammendorf, and there we had 6 basenjis with all 4 colours - Marion & Ebi with Tsula did come as well!
Aminouh was the fastest and loudest of my three, and after 2 runs in over 30°C they have been quite satisfied and tired and we had a chilled afternoon in the garden!
It was a lovely weekend! Photos below!

Last weekend, the BKD had again invited to the clubshow at Trechtingshausen. The great event was again organized by Noel Baaser & Rainer Fendel (Mutabaruga Basenjis).
Judeg was the wellknown basenji breeder Sally Wallis (Zande Basenjis) from England.
We had the record entry of 66 Basenjis.

The journey took us very long - 8 hours instead of 4 1/2, because one highway was totally closed. At our arrival at Trechtingshausen there was a thunderstorm, so we couldn`t do our planed boattrip.

Dorota & Tomek, the owners of Msumari`s Aza Aloua arrived as well - they had a 1000km trip - and we had a nice evening at our hotel.

We had quite bad weather on saturday, and the judging had to be stopped several times because of the rain.

Msumari`s Ayo Azibo got Exc.4 in the Intermediate Class of the males.
Loki`s Iloua got 2. place in the Honour Class
Msumari`s Aza Aminouh won the strong Intermediate Class with Exc.1, CAC & Klub-CAC!!!
Msumari`s Aza Aminouh got V in the Open Class females.
Besides this, we started for the first time breeders group with Msumari`s Ayo Azibo, Aza Aloua & Aza Aminouh and we won!!!
Graet success for Msumari`s Basenjis!
All entered dogs and results can be seen here!

In the evening a lot of exhibitors met at the hotel, and it was a very nice and funny evening!

Sunday Msumari`s Aza Aminouh und Msumari`s Ayo Azibo had to take part at the breeding permission test of the German Basenji Club. They both passed the test!
They could get 11x10 points the most.
Msumari`s Aza Aminouh is 41 cm high & she got 9x10 points & 2x8 points!
Msumari`s Ayo Azibo is 42 cm high & he got 8x10 points,1x9 points, 2x8 points!
He is now the first Msumari`s Stud Dog!!!

After the test, we went to the racetrack at Hünstetten, and the dogs had a lot of fun. It was the first time for Aloua & Kibibi at the racecourt and they both knew straight, what to do.

It was a great & successfull weekend for the Msumari`s Basenjis!
Photos can be seen below and here!

Today we have been the first time this year at the racecourt at Mammandorf.
It was very hot - over 30°C - but Iloua & Aminouh had anyway a lot of fun racing after the rabbit.
It was the first time for Beau (Msumari`s Ayo Azibo) on the racecourt. He wasn`t that thrilled about it, but I think, that he suffers more of the heat with his black coat.
Aminouh was "not amused" about the muzzle, so it seems, that I have to get her used to it at home.
After the race, Aminouh & Beau played a bit with two whippetgirls, and they had a lot of fun.
Fotos of the day below.

We spend a sunny & nice weekend at the double-CACIB at Innsbruck/Austria.
On both days 12 basenjis have been entered.
On saturday, 13.08. Msumari`s Ayo Azibo wins the Intermediate Class with Exc 1 & CAC under the judge Elsbeth Clerc (CH).
Msumari`s Aza Aminouh wins as well the Intermediate Class with Exc 1, CAC & CACIB!
On sunday, 14.08. Msumari`s Ayo Azibo gets Exc 2 in the Intermediate Class under the judge Richter Otto Schimpf (A).
Msumari`s Aza Aminouh wins again the Intermediate Class with Exc 1, CAC & CACIB!

Saturday after the show, we have been on tour at the lovely "Ötztal" and we had great weather. We did a little bit of hiking, took some "mountain-pics", watched wildwater rafting, ate delicious "Kaiserschmarrn, an austrian speciality and met good old friends.

Again we had a lovely & successful weekend! Photos (Andreas took almost all of them) can be seen below!

We have been at Ludwigshafen at the CACIB-Show with Clubshow of the basenjiclub the 06.08.2011. Judge Noel Baaser (Basenjikennel Mutabaruga`s) judged the basenjis in an outside ring in a relaxed and nice atmosphere.
Loki`s Iloua started in the honour class and was places first, Msumari`s Aza Aminouh gets  excellent 1 with CAC and Club-CAC in the intermediate class and Msumari`s Ayo Azibo gets excellent 1 with CAC, Club-CAC and Res.- CACIB in the intermediate class as well.
Besides this, Aminouh & Beau got their temperament test for the breeding permission of the club.



We had a lovely weekend with our friends Hedi & Harald and their 11 month old Shepard Finley
The weather was at least dry, and the dogs had a lot of fun playing in the garden.
Finley is such a sweetheart who didn`t react at all to the behavior of  "Beau", who sometimes behaves like a rowdy.
And "Beau" realized, that after he had the fight with another male basenji in switzerland 4 weeks ago, not every male is aggressive, and that it can be a lot of fun, just to play with other dogs!
And he felt totally in love with the little girl "Jacky" of the neighbours, who was allowed to play with them for a while.
Fotos of them can be seen below!

Loulka (Msumari`s Aza Aloua) was shown successfully again last weekend.
On the IRA at Bremen on saturday 30.07.11 she wins under the judge Iuza Berazde (GE) the intermediate class with excellent 1 and CAC! On the NRA at Bremen on sunday 31.07.11 she gets excellent 3 in the intermediate class under the judge Roberto Schill (RO).
Congrats, Dorota!

Things always come in a different way than expected...
Unfortunatly, we can`t realize our breeding plans with Iloua this year.

We have been for the eye-exam last monday with Iloua, Aminouh & "Beau" at professor Köstlin at the university in munich.
Aminouh & "Beau" both got PPM (iris-iris) and both are PRA free.
"Beau" got the unusual but benign pigmentation of the netskin like his mommy Iloua, which can be mixed up with PRA by unexperienced vets.

In one of Ilouas eyes, Professor Köstlin saw one small spot of cataract.

There are different forms of cataract.
One is hereditary, normally in both eyes, and with this form, you`re not allowed to breed anymore.
The other one comes of different reasons, for example of a metabolic disease or a injury or hit.
This form doesn`t change, and you`re allowed to breed, because they are inheritable.

Professor Köstlin didn`t give Iloua free now for the next 6 month, because he wants to see, if somethings changing.
If the cataract doesn`t modify, she`ll be free again.

But this means now, that I´m not allowed to breed with her the next season.
Thats a great pity, because it wasn`t easy to find a male I like and I was so happy, to have puppies again this winter.

I don`t know, if I´m going to have a litter again with Iloua in 2012, because Iloua will be almost 7 then. Perhaps it will be Aminouh then having the Msumari`s B-Litter. We´ll see...
Thank you as well again to all the puppy-buyers for their understanding and thanks a lot for the sympathy of the owners of the male!

But now something nice in the end:
The photos of the BKD-race at Tüttleben the 16.&17.07.2011 are online in the gallery!



Since one week "Beau" (Msumari`s Ayo Azibo) is for 3 weeks of holiday with us and mon and kids are having a lot of fun. In the meantime, Beau is used to our rhythm, he got a bit quiter and he`s enjoying the time with us.

Today, we have been at the Internationalen Show at Augsburg, where the basenjis got judged in an outside ring with cold and windy weather - luckily in the afternoon, when it had stopped raining.
Msumari`s Ayo Azibo wins the Intermediate Class of the males with very good 1.
Msumari`s Aza Aminouh wins the Intermediate Class of the females with excellent 1 an gets



The breeders seminar & the basenji-race of the BKD at Tüttleben was on our scedule for last two days, and what should I say - we had great 2 days again!
Before the seminar started, we went for an inlining tour around Tüttleben with the girls to make them tired.
Dr. Kröll from the animal hospital of Erfurt reported about the very interessting theme " From the season of a bitch to the hand over of the puppies".
This was followed by a report of our new club leaders about all the new projekts of the BKD.
The members can be curious besides others about the new website of the club and the new layout of our club magazin!
We did spend the rest of the evening in our super nice hotel at Gotha - there has only been the romanic suite available ;-))

Sunday was raceday.
Although they had pronounced rain, luckily the weather stayed dry. But it was very cloudy, therefore I don`t have that many good pics of the race!
Aminouh had her first race ever, and straightaway she got vice winner in a strong open class with 12 entrants! It took her 31,89s for the 350m on gras! She wasn`t used to the startbox yet, so I guess with some more experience, she`ll be even faster!
We`re very proud of our fast little girl!
Iloua had a lot of fun as always on the court, and she got a respectable 8. place with 33,18s. Not bad for 5 1/2 years!
Fotos of the weekend below!

And there are lovely new photos of Msumari`s Aza Amina from Angelika Joswig!
Many thanks for them - Amina is such a supersweet girl!

We`re back from our short trip to France and the World Dog Show at Paris.
After our arrival thursday night at our Hotel in the suburb of Paris (full with Showpeople) and a turbulent night (great, that our basenjis don`t bark) we had a nice sightseeing day around Paris on friday with visits at Versailles, Auvers sur Oise and Sacre Coeur.

Saturday was showtime in a not really beautiful hall - but the rings have been big.
The australian judge was ill, so the around 80 basenjis have been judged with really high speed and without judge reports by M. Velez Pico of Puerto Rico.
Aminouh, Beau und their sister Aloua from far Poland all got a unplaced V in the Intermediate Class, Iloua as well in the Champion Class. They all showed super - ok, Beau needs a bit of showtraining with me ;-) and I´m very proud of them!
It was very nice and interesting to see and meet some basenjipeople of Europe personally and to see them in the showring, and it was great to meet Dorota, Tomek & Marta mit Aloua & Kibibi again! Congrats as well to all the winners!

After the show we travelled to the direction of Troyes, where we stayed the next 2 days at a lovely auberge at Mesnil St. Père at the Lake D`Orient.
Sunday was sightseeing day again at Troyes and the dogs had their fun at the lake in the evening.
Monday we travelled back home 800km.
We had a great trip, photos can be seen in the gallery!



We´re back from our great holidays in tuscany, where we & the girls had two weeks of fun at the dogbeach! I finally found some time, to sort some of the photos I took, and now they can be seen in the gallery holidayphotos.
More photos of Iloua & Aminouh will follow soon on my photopage!

During our holiday in Italy we have been at the International Show in Viterbo.
Iloua gets V1 & CACIB in the Champion Class under the italian judge Pierluigi Buratti.
Aminouh gets V1, CAC & Res.-CACIB in the Intermediate Class!
Aminouh has got now already 3 tickets of 3 countries for the International Champion!!!
In Italy, the best dog/bitch of the Intermediate & Open Class have to compete for the CAC.
Starters in the Champion Class don`t get a CAC.

Msumari`s Aza Aloua
was successful shown by Marta Müller at the Internationalen Show at Krakau (Pl)! She gets V1, CACIB and BOB under the judge Magdalena Musial (Pl)!!!
Well done, Marta!

Msumari`s Aza Amina did send me sweet birthday greetings! Thank you Angelika & Hartmut Joswig!



The result of Aminouhs hip x-ray finally arrived - A1 - nothing better! Great!

Saturday & sunday, we have been at Greifenberg at H.UND, and we had a lot of fun!
I ordered two new, custommade harnesses for the girls, and already I´m very curious, how they will look like!
Almost every booth offered free treats, and the girls loved it!
Besides this, we met a lot of friends, for example Anja Jakob from the Click`n Trick Dogschool, who took the lovely photos of Aminouh & Iloua, because I was exceptionally there without a camera.

Msumari`s Aza Aloua was again very successful in the showring last weekend!
She wins in Litomerice (CZ) 2x CAC und 1x CACIB!
Super! Congrats, Dorota!!!

And there are again a lot of new photos on my photopage!



Msumari`s Ayo Azibo was with Nora at the dogshow at St. Gallen - 14.+15.05.11
"Beau" wins on both days under the judges Ch. Rossier (CH) & C. Z. Lokodi (RO)
the intermediate class with V1 & CAC!
Congrats, Nora!

While "Beau" was successful in the showring, we had our friends Hedi & Harald with their shepard Finley with us for a visit.
Finley is almost 9 month now and such a beautiful boy.
We had a great weekend, unfortunatly with not that much (photo-) sun. But I took some pics anyway, which can bee seen below.

We had a lovely long weekend!
After a short stay at my moms place in Styria on Friday, we have been on show at Maribor (SLO) on saturday & sunday.
Iloua (championclass) wins on both days CAC, CACIB & BOB,
Aminouh (intermediate class) on both days CAC & Res.-CACIB (useable).
On saturday, Iloua was with the last 4 in the group competition. 
We didn`t join the group competition on sunday because of the long way home, and we`d rather stoped again at my moms place.
At Maribor, we met as well my Facebook friends Tisa, Darinka & Katja with Zadi, and it was very nice, to met them personally!
It was a lovely weekend and the restaurant "Pri Florjanu" in the pedestrian area at Maribor is very recommendable!

Msumari`s Aza Aloua was as well sucessfull shown last weekend at Lodz (Pl) 07.05.2011.
She wins the intermediate class with CAC and gets Res-CACIB! Gratulations, Dorota!

Angelika & Hartmut Joswig have been on short holiday in holland at easter with Amina und Dante and they did send great photos. Amina tried, how she would look like as a brindle Basenji ;-)

Last weekend Msumari`s Aza Aloua has been on the national Show in Grudziadz (Pl) and she got BOB under the judge Elzbieta Augustyniak!!!
Well done, Dorota!!! Congrats!!!

And Angelika Joswig did send lovely photos of Msumari`s Aza Amina helping her in the garden!
The photos can be seen here!



We have been at Wieselburg/Austria at the show, and Aminouh wins under S. Sinko (SLO) V1, CAC & CACIB!
This is the start for her Austrian & International Champion!
Iloua was with us for her support, but she wasn`t entered.



Berlin, Berlin, we´re going to Berlin...
Last week, we had 4 great days in Berlin with visits in 2 theaters, sightseeing, & good food, and even a dogshow, which is not worth to be commentated could blur our good mood!
We met Msumari`s Aza Aloua with her owners Dorota & Tomek and Nirse Kibibi again, and it was great to see, how Aloua recognized me!
Aloua looks like her mommy Iloua and she is grown up to such a pretty young basenjilady!

Aminouh is recovering great of her hernia surgery!
She is already very fit, and I have to take care, that she`s not running and playing that wild with her toys!
Thanks to all for the get well messages!



Aminouh obviously had pain this morning at her hernia - she wined, when I took her up - and therefore, she got the hernia surgery done this afternoon.
We took the chanced and x-rayed her hips also!
I wanted to do this anyway the next month - now all happend a bit earlier!
She has to stay on a lead the next days, and the stiches will be removed in 2 weeks.
Of course, we`ll not go to the show at munich next weekend!



Angelika & Hartmut Joswig did send me 2 videos of Msumari`s Aza Amina.
Amina is learning to retrieve!
Video 1 (click)
       Video 2 (click)
Super, how she is doing this!
Thanks a lot to you, giving Amina such a great & diversified basenjihome!



Aminouh is always good for a surprise - she`s in season since last week!
None of my girls ever had a spring season, and I´m curious, if Iloua will follow!

I found a photo of Aminouhs Junior BOG3 at Graz (26.02.2011) - it can be seen in her Show-Gallery!

Besides this, the photos of our short-holidays in Austria are finally online and can be seen in the Gallery/Holidayphotos!
We had 3 days with great & sunny weather, and I took a lot of pics on a golf court, where Iloua & Aminouh loved to play with the golfballs.



In the topical issue of the UH, the magazin of the Austrian Kennelclub, there is a portrait of the Basenji, written by the wellknown austrian basenjibreeder & judge Phyllis Poduschka-Aigner.
It was a big honour for me, to supply the photos for the article, and my girls Iloua & Aminouh are on the coverpicture!
The text can be seen here (sorry - no english translation) and the photos with the dogs and their owners are listed below.

There are new photos of Iloua & Aminouh of today in the gallery!
It was sunny and we had blue sky, but it was freezing cold!
Winter came back again!



It`s already springtime in Bavaria - it felt about 20°C, and Iloua and Aminouh had a lot of fun during our walk at the river Ammer.
I had my photo and my videocamera with me, and I made a little film of them.
There are 2 new stacked photos of Aminouh (without a lead!) and I updated "My Basenjis"!

Besides this, I got the confirmation and certificat of Aminouhs German Juniorchampion (VDH)!
She is now the first Msumari`s Champion!

We enjoy our second holidayweek at home very much, and we are out a lot with the girls. Yesterday we had blue sky, but it was very, very cold - this can be seen on the photos below at the tails of Iloua & Aminouh ;-)

"Beau" (Msumari`s Ayo Azibo) had been over christmas and new year at the place of Anna und Paul Hulbert of the basenjikennel Leoniver`s in switzerland.
Anna did send me some photos od Beau, and it looks like he had a great time there.
Anna is having 6 basenjipuppies at the moment with Cansey, she has her daughter Mounty, which is half sister of Aminouh and Beau, she has 3 Tollers, cats (she´s breeding ragdolls) and alpacas!
Definitly no place for a young basenjiboy to be bored ;-)
Thank you Anna! Photos of "Beaus" adventureholidays can be seen below!

We are back from our X-Mas Holidays in Austria, where we had 6 wonderful lazy days!
On Aminouhs birthday, the girls had a visit of Henry, a Border/JackRusselMix, and the 3 had a lot of fun, running in the fields and on the orphaned golfcourt.
We had 2 more sunny days, so I took some lovely photos during one evening and one morning walk.
The photos of our X-Mas Holidays can be seen in the gallery under holidayphotos!

New years eve, we spend with our lovely friends Hedi & Harald, and of course Finley!
Aminouh & Finley are big friends, and Iloua gets more relaxed with the time now.
I had my videocamera with me, and I took a funny film of Aminouh & Finley playing on the couch! Switch on the sound and listen how wild & big Finley already is!
A lot of playing photos of Aminouh and Finley - playing in the garden in the afternoon, playing on the couch in the evening, playing in bed in the morning, playing in the snow in the afternoon - can be seen below!
