THE COST OF LOVE

I

love my dogs and recently joked with our plumber who had to replace a pricey small water heater in the kennel building, "Harold, you know there's just nothing too good for these dogs." And, that is true -- up to a point. Living in rural south central Texas means our only pet store has virtually no competition so it can set food prices to "what the traffic will bear." Don't get me wrong. The dog lovers of Kerrville have plenty of choices of premium food brands. The selection is almost endless as I wander down the aisles -- actually impressive for a town this size. Yet, all those selections come with some pretty hefty price tags. A 28.6-pound bag of Orijen®, a top rated food, sells for $92.00. I guess if I owned a sweet little toy dog and wanted to indulge the creature with "the best money can buy," this would be the food. After perusing all the different brands, I did a quick calculation in my head and concluded the average price for a 30-pound bag of dog food was between $65 - $70. Here at Adventureland that 30 pounds lasts only five days and pushes my dog food bill upwards of $400 a month. I honestly don't think our personal grocery bill is that high. Still, my dogs need all the energy they can gobble. Several are young and very active. I never realized what a bargain I was getting up north, living in the land of competition. When I started shopping down here for dog food, I discovered the prices were at least $10 higher a bag. At that time I had seven dogs so this increase seemed easy enough to absorb. That was also about the time some my basenjis took that as a cue to become more finicky. They loved that more pricey food in that smaller 30-pound bag instead of the 40-pound brand I was buying. I never want to short change my dogs’ nutrition, but realize now with several more dogs added to the mix, I need to be more creative. Some breeders shared their thoughts about getting good quality food for their dogs, offering ideas like mixing a bag of premium food with a lower cost food or supplementing the diet with some raw food. One person suggested I talk to some of the local butchers about getting bones and chicken necks. My friend went on to say that an inexpensive box of chicken necks will go a long way to adding protein and fat to the dogs' diets. I am going to pursue this avenue and am open to suggestions others might have. I put a note on Facebook and got several responses. Yet, my eyes twirled when I discovered the cost of premium dog food in Australia. Made my bill pale by comparison. We love our basenjis and do all we can to ensure their healthy lives. Tell us what the cost of love is for your dogs.

ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION

W

hen I first toyed with the idea of writing about using artificial insemination (AI) as a breeding choice, I did considerable research on the topic. The material on the “net” is infinite and even mind-boggling because there is so much information, and it is in no particular order. I found myself flipping from one screen to another, one document to the next and wading through myriad opinions on which AI method to use. The 1st quarter 2013 covered PART I, the history of AI and the three types of procedures commonly used. In this issue we continue with Part II - THE DOG. PART I - LET ME COUNT THE WAYS provides an historical overview of how using artificial insemination began, why and when to use AI, and the three procedures utilized. PART II - THE DOG - PRESERVING THOSE GENES covers how breeders can protect the genetic makeup in selected stud dogs and why this is important. PART III - THE BITCH explains options for using AI versus natural breeding, describes what’s in store for the bitch and her owner once the decision is made, and provides interviews from breeders who have and continue to use AI as a breeding choice. PART IV - AND NOW WE WAIT covers the pregnancy, using ultrasound and radiographs, and recaps the world of artificial insemination in dogs.

PART II: THE DOG - PRESERVING THOSE GENES The basis of fresh chilling and freezing semen is energy conservation within the sperm cell so that the semen can be shipped or used at a later date. [Robert V. Hutchinson, DVM]

I

n 1981 the American Kennel Club recognized the first litter conceived from frozen semen. Since then veterinarians specializing in canine reproduction have worked to develop protocols to maximize conception rates using artificial insemination. Freezing or chilling semen requires a process that will protect the energy within the sperm for a later use. Today those techniques are readily available for a breeder who wants to preserve the genetic makeup of an exceptional sire or a promising young dog that possesses a pedigree worth perpetuating long after the dog is no longer available as a stud. Once the decision has been made to collect semen from a male dog, consider these factors -• Age of the dog. • Timing to collect the sperm. • Tests required before collection -- negative Brucellosis,

• • • •

genetic health tests, AKC required DNA test for proof of parentage. The number of breedings yielded from one collection. Storage requirements and costs for freezing semen. Regulations that must be met if the semen might be for international use. Registry (AKC, CKC, UKC, FCI, UK) requirements.

Whether the semen is going to be frozen for future use, collected and shipped as fresh, chilled extended semen, or used for a vaginal insemination in a vet’s office, these factors should be weighed carefully before the collection takes place. Using artificial insemination as a breeding choice takes planning and preparation, whether it involves having a dog collected or being on the receiving end of semen shipment. It should not be considered as a last minute option.

PART II: THE DOG - PRESERVING THOSE GENES (Continued) The ideal age for collecting semen from dogs is between the ages of 18 months and 4 years. As males age, the risk of prostate disease increases. If this occurs, the result could be poor quality semen. However, older males have been collected and their sperm have been used successfully. In 2012, I used frozen semen from a male that was 10 years old when he was collected. Though the breeding was successful, when the semen was thawed for the AI, the energy output of the sperm was compromised to a higher degree than if this collection had been taken from a young dog. Using semen of lower quality requires very precise timing on the part of the bitch owner.

SEMEN QUALITY Concentration, Motility, and Forward Motion Excellent: Smooth, straight, linear forward progression. Good: Minor degree of deviation from linear, yet still good forward progression. Average: More deviation from linear, yet still acceptable degree of forward progression. Fair: Sperm cells progressing, but showing major deviation from linear. Poor: Sperm cells moving, yet little or no forward progression, such as jiggling in place or spinning.

THE COLLECTION:

WHO CAN COLLECT SEMEN?

S

emen may be collected by a veterinarian, a veterinarian specializing in reproductive services, or a collection service. While a collection service does not have to employ a licensed veterinarian, all these agencies must be licensed and inspected by a registry such as the American Kennel Club, and all must comply with approved handling and recordkeeping procedures. If you choose a collection center that does not have a licensed veterinarian on staff, have all the testing, especially Brucellosis and DNA, done on your dog before having his semen collected. When you arrive at the clinic or collection center, you will need to complete several forms before the process begins. Bring a copy of the dog’s registration and proof of its permanent ID. Most of the questions are straightforward. However, something to be considered is what happens to the stored semen if the owner dies. The clinic I use requires a Survivor statement. Consider these survivor rights the same as you would when drafting a will. Who do you want to name as the beneficiary who will take possession of the frozen semen? If you choose not to name a beneficiary, you will need to sign a release form allowing the storage facility to dispose of the semen.

WHAT HAPPENS ONCE THE SEMEN IS COLLECTED?

T

he process for handling semen will depend on its intended use. As discussed in PART I, the semen might be collected in the vet’s office for immediate vaginal insemination in the bitch. Other than to evaluate the sperm quality, no further preparation to the collection is necessary

before the semen is used.

Fresh, Chilled Extended Semen: an overview

I

f the semen is being collected for immediate shipment, it will be evaluated for concentration, motility, and forward motion, and then undergo preparation to safeguard the life-expectancy and energy of the sperm during shipment and transplant. The sperm are separated from the seminal plasma and prostatic fluid using a centrifuge and a semen separating solution. Then an extender is added to the sperm to increase lifeexpectancy. Extenders contain egg yolk, antibiotics, and chemicals to protect and play a crucial role to maintain the semen within a specific pH range. This solution also supplies energy and protection to the sperm cell membrane during the cooling process. The sample is placed in a beaker filled with roomtemperature water and then refrigerated at 40 degrees F. The tube containing the fresh, chilled semen is then placed in a simple Styrofoam cooler along with ice packs and shipped overnight to the bitch owner’s veterinarian. When the package arrives, it should be opened immediately and inspected. The protocol for inspection used by experienced veterinarians is pretty consistent throughout the profession. Once a sample has been tested for concentration, mobility, and forward motion, the rest of the semen is refrigerated until the scheduled insemination of the bitch. Dr. Robert Hutchinson, DVM, a renowned reproductive specialist, recommends the refrigerated fresh, chilled sample not be warmed before insemination. “Having the sample in the uterus as it warms makes maximum use of the conserved energy.”

PART II: THE DOG - PRESERVING THOSE GENES (Continued)

Frozen semen: an overview

F

rozen sperm cells can be preserved indefinitely when stored at -322 degrees F, but the energy output of these cells will be diminished when thawed. The maximum life-span of thawed sperm is 12 to 24 hours after insemination. Therefore, the concentration, motility, and forward motion of the sperm are very important in order for the breedings to be effective years later when the sperm is used. As with fresh, chilled extended semen, an extender is added to the sperm to protect and play a crucial role to maintain the semen within a specific pH range and to supply energy and protection to the sperm cell membrane during the freezing and warming process. Sperm can be frozen in straws or pellets. While most collections today are frozen in pellet form, straws are still readily available. The extenders, freezing methods, and the thawing techniques are different for each form, however. When freezing guidelines are followed carefully, the semen post-thaw quality will be very good regardless of whether the semen is frozen in pellets or straws. Freezing semen in straws requires several hours of preparation time while freezing in pellets takes much less time. One semen collection should yield more than one breeding. In basenjis, the average collection will contain about 400 to 500 million sperm which represents five to eight breedings. I had a young basenji male collected that produced over a billion sperm -- which resulted in of over 12 breedings. This number is calculated based on the quality, concentration and motility of the sperm in the post-thaw sample before the entire collection is placed in storage. Once the semen is frozen, the owner may have to arrange for the straws or pellets to be shipped to a storage facility. Some reproductive specialists have their own freezing centers on-site while collection centers may outsource the storage of semen. Owners should anticipate paying $80 to $130 annually for semen storage. All the breedings are labeled with the dog’s name, its registration number, a distinctive ID, and the breed and then placed in small vials. This information is also recorded on a form. The owner will receive one copy of the record, the storage center retains a copy, and another is filed with the registry, such as the American Kennel Club.

SHIPPING FROZEN SEMEN

O

nly the owner of the semen can authorize the relocation of any of the frozen semen breedings. Some storage centers require the owner to complete a special form; others may allow telephone authorization, or an email directing one or more breedings to be sent to another facility. The storage center requires advance payment

for shipping semen, an expense typically paid by the recipient, usually the bitch owner. These costs include charging a liquid nitrogen vapor tank, a deposit fee for the tank, the record keeping to relocate the semen, and the arrangements for shipping. The fee for this work can range from $80 to $150 US. The carrier fee, usually Federal Express, will cost an additional $400-$450 US, which includes the cost to return the vapor tank to the storage facility.

Any time a breeding is removed from the storage center, its movement must be recorded and filed Cane to with all parties. Any veterinarian who hold vials receives shipment of frozen semen must of straws also record the receipt of the shipment. or pellets In order to protect the integrity of parentage of any offspring resulting from artificial insemination, AKC requires a complete chain of custody in the process of collecting, freezing, storing, and inseminating semen. Frozen semen breedings are shipped in a charged liquid nitrogen vapor tank. A cane that holds the breeding vials is fastened inside the tank along with the documents identifying the vials and a form describing the semen’s quality, both pre- and post-thaw during collection. The carrier of choice is Federal Express. A charged tank can safely store breeding vials up to two weeks as long as the tank is not opened. However, shippers should use overnight express delivery to ensure the safety of the semen.

PART II: THE DOG - PRESERVING THOSE GENES (Continued)

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

W

hen shipping semen abroad, foreign countries may have restrictions beyond what is required in the USA. Allow at least 30 days to complete the forms for the USDA and for the country where the semen is being shipped. There may be a quarantine requirement in some countries, such as the United Kingdom and Australia. All health tests must be done before the dog’s semen is collected. Some countries require proof of vaccinations and blood tests for Canine Distemper, Canine Adenovirus, Parvo, Bordetella, Para-influenza, Leptospirosis, Ehrlichiosis, and for parasites. A breeder in Norway contacted me to purchase a breeding from one of my stud dogs and wanted the semen shipped to Finland where the bitch lived. Finland requires a Leptospirosis vaccination done prior to semen collection. In this country, depending on the geographic area, this particular vaccine is not given to most dogs, nor is it even required. Since I had not anticipated shipping semen overseas when I had this male collected, the semen was not compliant with this country’s requirements. An ISO (International Standards Organization) approved microchip, such as Avid®, Trovan®, Destron®, must be implanted in the stud dog, if he does not already have one, before the collection takes place. If you are shipping semen to Australia you will need: • DAFF Import Permit - at least 30 days prior to import. • RNATT test declaration signed and stamped by official government veterinarian. • Private Veterinary Attendance & Treatment Declaration • Full payment of fees. • Permits are valid for 6 months from date of issue. It’s critical to plan well in advance of having your male’s semen collected if you anticipate shipping any of those breedings to another country.

WHAT’S NEXT?

N

ow that the genes of this exceptional male have been preserved and have arrived on the doorstep of the reproductive specialist, the duty passes to the bitch owner who has made the decision to use artificial insemination.

Some Advice from a Stud Dog Owner By A. Tad Brooks Meisterhaus Basenjis & Whippets

THE

use of fresh chilled extended semen has really taken breeding dogs to a whole new level for those breeders who do not like the idea of sending their beloved companions away from home. It is a wonderful resource that I have been using for over 15 years. When important stages are followed and timing is right, it makes breeding dogs so much easier than the “old fashioned” way.

STEP 1 When you are contacted by another breeder who is interested in using your dog at stud, it is important to begin the conversation by discussing what your priorities and requirements are, as well as other important topics that are important to both you and the bitch owner. You should inquire about health testing that has already been done on the bitch and if there is something more that you require, inform the owner. You also need to negotiate the stud fee and inform the bitch’s owner what stud dog guarantees you provide, if any. Send the bitch owner a copy of your stud dog agreement, so that the breeder is prepared to sign the agreement when the time comes. This step is important in the early stage to prevent misunderstandings once the bitch is in season. As the stud dog owner, you will need to know the type of insemination the bitch owner plans to use -- vaginal, transcervical or surgical -- and approximately when the bitch is due to come in season. Since our breed comes in the same time of year, you will most likely have a bitch in season to motivate the stud dog during the collection. Otherwise, let your veterinarian know an approximate time frame, so that it might be possible to locate a bitch available for the process. Paperwork is covered below, but it is my belief that all paperwork should be signed and on file by the time the bitch comes in season.

Some Advice from a Stud Dog Owner (Continued) STEP 2

PAPERWORK

Ask your veterinarian what paperwork is required in order for the clinic to handle credit card charges that will be paid by the bitch owner. Make sure forms are sent to the owner to be completed, signed, and returned to the vet who is doing the collection. This is just another small piece that will help expedite things and prevent time delays or problems when it is time for the collection and insemination to take place.

Breeding contract / Stud Dog Contract: Make sure that you have a signed stud dog contract and agreement between you and the owner of the bitch. This contract covers expectations of both parties – guarantee/ agreement by both parties and the stud fee. These terms and guarantees differ with each breeding and circumstance, so it is important to decide what is important to you and the requirements that you feel are vital to the betterment of the breed. When the owner of the bitch contacts you, be prepared to respond to questions like stud fee, health testing required, results of your dog’s health testing, and possibly an estimate of what your veterinarian charges will be for the associated fees to collect, evaluate, and ship the semen to the other party.

STEP 3 The stud dog owner will need to discuss with the owner the past history of the bitch, including the timeframe(s) of her past seasons and planning for her to come into season if a pattern exists. Preparation is crucial when breeding with fresh chilled extended semen. This undertaking will involve time, resources and patience to ensure success. You should advise the owner to put the bitch on light color bedding and to check her with a gauze pad, cotton ball or toilet paper daily. This can help ensure that you don’t miss the beginning of her heat cycle. Once the bitch comes in season, it is very important that the owner of the bitch lets you know right away. Note that date and alert your vet.

STEP 4 Progesterone tests must begin early in the bitch’s heat cycle in order to get a baseline of her hormone levels, under the “repro” vet’s advisement. Progesterone testing is used to pinpoint the exact time that ovulation occurs and the best time to inseminate. Have the owner to let you know each test result and to keep you in the loop so you can, in turn, have your vet prepared and have a bitch in season, hopefully ready to be bred, on standby. This will facilitate the collection(s).

Health testing paperwork: You need to cover your requirements concerning health testing in the breeding contract/stud contract, but it is important to receive paperwork showing each of the tests that you require either by email or regular mail. This will ensure there is no question or delay when it is time for the breeding. Payment Authorization: Payment for tests, vet fees, collection, and shipping are the responsibility of the bitch’s owner. The stud dog owner’s veterinarian will most likely need a credit authorization form completed by the owner of the bitch, signed and returned. This form is an agreement by the owner of the bitch to pay all the associated charges for collection, semen preparation and shipping charges for semen.

When the owner of the bitch advises you of the ovulation peak, you need to know whether the bitch owner’s vet will require one or two collections. This will mostly depend on the type of insemination and also when ovulation occurs. Timing the insemination can be tricky sometimes, especially when you are working around weekends, your job, etc. FedEx doesn’t ship on Saturday or Sunday and doesn’t deliver on Sunday, so all of these details are important to know.

The use of fresh chilled extended semen for breeding your basenjis is something no one should fear because there are so many advantages. If you have utilized this resource in the past, I think you should consider this an option for your next breeding. It takes time, planning, and maybe a few trips to your veterinarian’s office, but your bitch doesn’t have the stress of being with the stud dog owner for a week or two or endure the flight to and from the stud dog owner’s location, in addition to her having to be away from home. In light of increases in gas prices, exorbitant airline charges to fly a dog, safety concerns, and embargos for many months of the year, the option of fresh chilled extended semen is most certainly going to become a lot more popular in the coming years. m

Daily communication is essential etween you, the bitch’s owner, and the “repro” vet,. You should also keep your own veterinarian informed of an impending collection and shipment. It is also important to have all paperwork done in the early days of the bitch’s cycle or possibly even before, and also to have payment arrangements made. You do not want to be discussing paperwork with the owner of the bitch, with all the things already on their plate with trips to the vet, blood work, etc.

Tad Brooks has been breeding basenjis since 1991. His first fresh chilled extended semen breeding was back in 1997 and resulted in an all-Champion litter. Tad is well qualified to offer advice about using artificial insemination. He has collected and shipped fresh chilled extended semen from his own stud dogs 13 times and has had eight litters born at Meisterhaus using this method.

MY WORLD Hi

out there in Senjiland. Since my initial attempt at taking Sarah’s place some extraordinary things have happened to me!

BY KYA

live, we don’t often go for walks, but one day I heard my credentials jingle and I knew we were going for a walk. Little did I know it was also going to be a training session. Of course, it wasn’t all training. I was able to read the “neighborhood news” between training sessions. It was, overall, a very nice walk, and I did well on the heeling. Still, I was not too happy about putting my buns on the cold cement, but mom said I did good so that made me excited. But, can you believe it?? No treats!!! Obedience starts in two weeks or so.

First of all, I am a certified therapy dog. On my last visit I met Dougie! He lives at the facility where we visit. I had heard about Dougie from Cinder, Sarah, and Damon, but in all the times I have gone to Dougie’s place, I never met him. Oh my! He looked at me, puffed up, brought his tail up, and said, “Hi, beautiful. Where did I now have kitchen you come from?” He looked at me, puffed up, brought his tail up, and said, privileges which I almost Well! I was flattered, “Hi, beautiful. Where did you come from?” Well! I was lost twice. Once I but....Dougie is an chewed a hole in my OLD dog. I would flattered, but....Dougie is an OLD dog. I would guess he fuzzy bed.

Yet, I was very polite to him, anyway. thought I could do now it’s not a good idea better than Dougie. to put any fuzzy thing Yet, I was very polite down on the floor to him, anyway. because I just can’t resist the temptation.

I was caught right in the act and was ostracized (I like that this is a really huge building. The taller of the two men said I word) and banned from the kitchen for a whole day. Believe me, was so pretty which really made me feel good. The other man I’ll be more careful not to get caught in the future because I really was in a chair with wheels. He said, “I want a date!” Mom like that kitchen. looked at the guide, and they both looked at the man, just a little stunned and shocked when he referred to me.

Of course, the Man doesn’t, but I “Mom! Save me! I don’t know this man.” Long story short, don’t care.

In 1958 the village of Zorzor was a remote location that required several days to reach by footpath. Today Zorzor is the second largest city in Lofa County, Liberia.

By Roslyn Luce Sadler

More on the Blacks of Liberia

At that time Roslyn Sadler gave an account to George Gilkey, a renouned authority on dog breeds and one of the first people to own a basenji in the US, of her search for basenjis among the Loma tribes of Liberia. 8101 Landover Road Hyattsville, Maryland July 2, 1958 Mr. George L. Gilkey Anson and Gilkey Company Merrill, Wisconsin Dear Mr. Gilkey: I was very glad to hear from you the other day, I shall try my best to answer your questions about my dogs. Perhaps you will be able to come to a better conclusion about them. I haven’t had the opportunity to make a study of books on the dogs of Africa. My study has been limited to the dogs of the villages of the Loma tribe of the interior of Liberia, and whatever literature on the Basenji I have been able to get hold of during the past several years. First, I had better give you something of my history in Liberia and my interest in the dogs there. My husband, Dr. Sadler, is a linguist and a missionary. We have been living in the interior of Liberia for 17 years. We have worked among the people of the Loma tribe. If you can find a map that is large enough, you will be able to locate the town of Zorzor in Liberia. Zorzor is the government seat for the Western Province, Loma country. We were assigned the task of reducing the Loma language to writing, preparing lesson material for foreigners to learn to speak the language, producing literature in the language, and setting up and conducting a literacy program among the adults of the tribe. Because the language had never been analyzed we felt it would be wise to isolate ourselves in a Loma village where we would hear the language spoken all day. We did this, and we have remained among the Loma people ever since. They are delightful neighbors, During our early years I often noticed the village dogs and thought that with good food and proper care that they would make very attractive pets. About eight years ago someone told me about the Basenjis, and they asked if I had ever seen them. When they mentioned that they didn’t bark, it rang a bell. It explained the reason for the quietness of the village in spite of the large number of dogs. I could remember moonlight nights in Cuba when it was almost impossible to *George Gilkey [1882 - 1965] was a renouned authority on rare dog breeds and was one of the first people in the US to own a basenji. Veronica Tudor-Williams referred to George as a “famous pioneer” of the breed. He served as president of the Basenji Club of America in 1950 and 1959.

More on the Blacks of Liberia continued sleep because of the barking and howling of the dogs. On a moonlight night in our village the only sound you would hear would be the singing and dancing of the people, or if no dancing, the loud noises of the insects - but no dogs. Right away I began reading everything I could on the Basenji, and I became convinced that the village dogs were true and pure. If there is some doubt that they are true Basenjis, I can vouch for their purity. In those days it took us five days by path travel to Modern day map of reach our village.

He was beautiful. Just as I expected him to be and as I thought the dogs would be if they were given proper care. We lost him a year later when he was bitten by a rabid dog.

More on the Blacks of Liberia continued village. Like other Basenjis, the Loma dogs have puppies only once a year. The litters are small with usually only three pups the first time. Almost all that I saw had had four puppies. I was told that some have five and some older dogs can have six. I have never seen this. About the size - the mother dog is 15 inches, or a little higher, at the shoulder. I’m not quite certain how to do this measuring. The male that I have is a little over 16 inches, but I don’t think he has reached his full growth. The younger bitch is smaller than her mother, especially right now. I feel sure she will be the same size if she gets well and gains back her weight. She is so much like her mother people ask, “Are they twins?” Many of the dogs in Loma country are larger than these. I’d say some are 17 to 19 inches high. I noticed that Mrs. Ward’s dogs were heavier than mine, but they looked exactly like many I have seen in my walks through the villages. Though, I must say, they never looked as well fed. The coats are very close, and like other Basenjis, as sweet smelling as a clean sweater. They are very clean and are always licking themselves. In some ways they make me think of cats — the delicate way they eat and lap their food^ their licking, their independence, the way they hate wet grass and puddles, I think they are the ideal dog for cat-lovers who want a dog, too. The Loma dogs do not bark. They are capable of learning, I’m sorry to say. My two bitches never make a sound. The male makes weird, undog-like sounds, which you would have to hear to believe. He always gets a laugh, and from those who have never heard him, a startled look. The few times that the male has tried to

imitate our noisy neighbors, it has come out as two half-formed ‘arfs’. They can whine, whimper, and make a very high pitched (more a vibration than a sound) sound in their throats when they want to come in. The tails of the best of the Loma dogs have the tight double curl. They do all the things that other Basenjis seem to do. They cover their eyes with their feet and brush their ears when they want you to pet them. They are very close to their owner. When I’m around they won’t answer to any other person. They are wonderful with children. In every way, I believe my dogs to be Basenjis. I hope I have given a clear enough picture of my dogs to help you answer some of the questions you had. If there are any more questions, I shall be glad to try to answer them. Please feel free to write. If you have any words of advice, I shall be glad to hear anything you have to say. I am very green in the U.S. dog world and would appreciate all help. Mrs. Ward has been very kind; I haven’t been able to carry out all her suggestions because of the illness they have had. I entered the mother dog in the Staten Island Show, per Mrs. Ward’s advice, but I didn’t take her to the show because of the other dogs. This was heartbreaking, for we were all the way up to Staten Island. I hope to start showing them as soon as all are well, I am having a wonderful time with my dogs, in spite of the tough start. I think they are the finest breed of dog there is. More than one person has stopped me to ask about them. More than one has exclaimed “They are the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen.” And I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you again for writing. I was very glad to hear from you. Very sincerely, Roslyn L.

LUKURU IMPORT UPDATE Authors: Kevin Leimback, Therese Leimback, Karla Schreiber, Parry Tallmadge, and Jo Thompson

THE LUKURU BASENJI CONSERVATEURS (LBC) are a small but dedicated group of people, each with decades of basenji experience, who have the common purpose to manage the unique part of living history known as the Lukuru basenjis.

THE

vision of the group is concentrated on the interests and management of the individual dogs imported from the Lukuru geographic region of central DRCongo and their offspring, as well as the preservation of the basenji breed and traditional way of life (including net hunting for forest duikers/antelopes with bows, arrows, and spears) of the indigenous people who use the dogs in the same manner as their ancestors at the source population, a cultural and natural heritage. All of us - Kevin Leimback, Therese Leimback, Karla Schreiber, Parry Tallmadge, and Jo Thompson - work and communicate closely with each other as curators for all native stock imported from the Lukuru and as the managers of the breeding program. The Lukuru basenjis were imported in 2007. We are pleased to share the current status of our basenjis and our carefully planned breeding program. Lukuru litter #1 was whelped 23 October 2010 from our test breeding of native import Lukuru Amisi (AKC registered in 2009) X native import Lukuru na Liboso Mopaya (AKC

“Cassie” Lukuru Constellation Cassiopeia for Antefaa registered in 2010). We were rewarded with a lovely litter of six red and white basenjis that contribute, among other positive attributes, superb temperaments, moderate angulations, correct fronts and shoulder layback, excellent forehead and side wrinkle, properly rounded cushioning, rich eyeliner, original head type, and ‘fit for purpose’ character, all as according to the breed standard.

“Lema” - Lukuru Lema

October 2011, native import Lukuru Lema (AKC registered in 2010) went to live with Therese and Kevin Leimback as part of our program. Of that experience, Therese writes:

“Since Lema came to live with us I have become impressed with my own basenjis, and the fact they are so much like the Lukuru basenjis that came from deep within the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). She adjusted very quickly and fit in with my other basenjis and in our home. After a short time we began taking Lema out to meet people at dog events. All our basenjis go with us anytime we travel, and Lema was no exception. She made friends quickly and easily with the people and dogs she met, and she especially loves children. We can’t stress enough how delighted we are with Lukuru Lema and her temperament; she is a wonderful basenji to live with and offers all the traits we love so much about our other basenjis. Lema is sweet, playful, loves to snuggle in bed with us and enjoys roaming our property with the other basenjis. She is the life of the party and draws people and the other dogs to her like moths to a flame. She makes me smile every time I look at her and think of what she has been through in her short life.”

arla Schreiber shares her personal observations of living with a Lukuru basenji. She writes:

“Rihanna joined the New World pack at age 12 weeks and was immediately accepted by our three youngest basenjis - Portia (1/2 Avongara stock), Warren (1/16th Avongara stock) and Kita (100% Avongara stock). In all respects, Rihanna’s behavior and development have paralleled my 20+ year experience with native stock basenjis. Rihanna is the sixth one-half (or very close to it) native stock basenji that I have lived with on a daily basis. While I was prepared to carefully document any differences I noted between Rihanna and my high percentage Avongara kidz, I’ve instead found myself marveling at how strikingly similar she is in almost

every respect. The only real differences I’ve noted are that: (a) Rihanna has a more “domestic” body style (shorter coupled, with a bit less tuck-up and depth of chest) than my Avongaras; and (b) she is a bit less inclined to attempt daring physical feats such as

Rihanna has no trouble keeping pace with Warren in a game of chase and gives Portia and Kita a run for their money. While I will continue to watch for and document developmental differences as she matures, at this point, I can only say that Rihanna brings a great deal of joy to our household -- and it is a privilege to co-own her with Dr. Jo. We are anxiously awaiting her show ring debut this spring, giving lure coursing and possibly nose work a try, and ultimately letting her have a litter or two, if that is in the cards.” Which is Which??

Basenjis

RUNNING in

IN

Finland

By Erja Billings, Finland

T

Finland basenjis have had rights to run officially in sight hound coursing and racing competitions since 1998. Racing and coursing season in Finland is mainly between May and October. Traditionally, there is one winter coursing event in March. Yearly, there are about 20 coursing and 20 racing events all around the country.

he number of dogs in coursing has risen every year. In 1998 when basenjis started officially running, there were 511 different dogs running in coursing events; nine of them were basenjis. Last year there were 847 dogs including 46 basenjis. Top year so far was 2010 when there was a total of 877 different dogs. Basenjis’ top year was 2009 – 51 different total basenjis running. The number of dogs in racing during the latest years was about 300, with 30 of them basenjis. After whippets, salukis and borzois, basenjis are the next highest breed in coursing in Finland. In racing, basenjis are, at the moment, the second largest breed after whippets. The difference in the number of dogs attending coursing and racing is dependent on mainly two reasons. Coursing is easier to start, as there are no trial runs. For a racing licence a dog has to have three accepted trial runs. There are only five tracks in Finland; Helsinki, Tampere, Hyvinkää, Turku, and Oulu. Travel distances to a racing track can be long; three out of the five tracks are in southern Finland; Tampere about in the middle; and Oulu in the north. It is not that easy to travel long distances to a racing practise during the week from all around the country. Weekends during the summer are reserved for competitions, and racing practises cannot be arranged. Basenjis can start running when they are 15 months old. So far there have been 23 Finnish Lure Coursing Champions and 24 Finnish Track Racing Champions, totally 37 different dogs. 27 of

these have a FI CH title; they have not only been successful in running, but at shows as well. Two of the champions are dual champions in racing and coursing, and eight of them triple champions, having all Finnish Champion titles. Four dogs out of 37 champions are imports to Finland; one racing champion, two coursing champions and one triple champion.

COURSING RULES •

A coursing licence can be obtained without trial runs from the Finnish Sight Hound Association (SVKL).

In a coursing competition, two dogs run at the same time, and the pairs are (usually) drawn before the preliminary run. In the final run the pairs are determined by the ranking of the first round. Males and bitches run separately if there are more than 6 individuals in both sexes.

Three judges evaluate each run. Coursing judges will judge the performance of the dogs on the basis of five criteria; agility, speed, endurance, enthusiasm and intelligence.

Maximum points that can be gained for a single run are 300, therefore, 600 points for the whole competition.

In a national competition, the arranging club can determine

The Modern Basenji - Worldwide - www.modernbasenji.com | 26


The Modern Basenji - Worldwide - www.modernbasenji.com | 27


on what point limit a dog can proceed to the final run. If the competition is run under international rules, every dog which has earned over 150 points can proceed to the final run. •

Two dogs for any breed are enough to have a competition. For a Finnish Championship title there has to be at least six dogs running in each breed, and if there are six dogs of both sexes, both winners can achieve a Finnish Championship title. All dogs attending to the Finnish Championship competition must also be registered under the Finnish Kennel Club.

To all other competitions the foreign dogs are warmly welcome!

To achieve a Champion title in Finnish Lure Coursing, the dog has to gain five certificates from two different coursing years. At this moment the criteria to qualify for a certificate is set at 400 points. The number of certificates awarded depends on the number of dogs in the class: 1-10 dogs – one certificate, 11-20 dogs 2 certificates and so one.

DVM-11 Ajibu Farm Girl

FI CH, FI LC CH, DV-12, DVM-12, SMM-11-12, SMR-12, CVM-13 Ajibu Great Balls of Fire -“Winston”

The rules will change in 2014, and the current proposal is that each dog that has over 450 points will receive a certificate. This point limit is not certain yet; it could be higher, perhaps 480 points. According to the new rules, the number of certificates is not limited to the number of dogs attending, but to the performance of the dogs – as it is in every other form of dog competition in Finland.

COURSING TITLES In addition to the Finnish Lure Coursing Champion (FI LC CH) title and the Finnish Championship (SMM) title, three titles are given to the winners of the special competitions: CVM – Finnish Cup – for this competition the best dogs of the previous year are invited DVM – Derby-title - for dogs which are three years old during the coursing year VMM – for veterans (age 6-8 years) These three titles are Finnish Sight Hound Association titles and will not appear in the Finnish Kennel Club database, but can be used in front of the dog’s name.

RACING RULES •

A racing licence can be obtained after three accepted trial runs from the Finnish Sight Hound Association (SVKL).

Basenjis run over two distances – 280 and 350 metres.

Certificates are based on time: 280 metres: 24.70 other tracks than Turku, Turku: 25.10 350 metres: 31.00 other tracks than Turku

After the preliminary round, all the fastest dogs will continue to the final round. The arranging club can also apply for special races. For

example, their own classes for veterans, or dogs that have not run qualified certificate times etc. For the Finnish Championship competition, the rules are the same as in coursing. •

To achieve a Champion title in Finnish Track Racing, the dog has to have five certificates from two different racing years and from two different tracks.

RACING TITLES In addition to the Finnish Track Racing Champion (FI RC CH) title and the Finnish Championship (SRM) title, there are four titles which are given to the winners of the special competitions: DV – Derby-title - for dogs which are three years old during the racing year (distance 350 m)

VMM – for veterans (age 6-8 years, distance 280 m) JK – Track King – must be at least four dogs in class (distance 350 m) TS – Star Sprinter – must be at least two dogs in class (distance 280 m) These four titles are Finnish Sight Hound Association titles and will not appear in Finnish Kennel Club database, but can be used in front of the dog’s name.

MY BASENJIS RUNNING I have three basenjis; I got my first basenji in 2006. We started coursing during summer 2007, but quite soon it was obvious that Eddie (Ajibu Datz Me) was not too keen on coursing. My interest in the running stayed, and with the second basenji, an import from US, we started coursing again in 2009. George is definitely keen on running. I couldn’t get him inside from the garden as he wanted to run and run, and once again, run. George, FI CH, FI LC CH, FI RC CH, DVM-10 Sonbar’s Tom Terrific For Ajibu (owned by Marjukka Anttila), is the only imported triple champion. He taught running to his son, Winston, who is third basenji at our pack now. Winston’s dam is one of the most successful basenjis in running competitions and a triple champion as well. Her full name with the titles is now FI CH, FI LC CH, FI RC CH, CVM-08-09-10, DVM-08, SM-08-09, TS-09, PM-09 Ajibu Dixie Rose (owned by Laura Valkama and Marjukka Anttila). Winston, FI CH, FI LC CH, DVM-12, DV-12, SMM-11-12, SMR-12, CVM-13 Ajibu Great Balls of Fire (co-owned with Marjukka Anttila), started coursing in 2011. Winston has been top lure courser in basenjis for two years; winning both years Finnish Championships, Derby last year and becoming FI LC CH. Last summer he started racing with fabulous results; won all the races, made four track records, and won the Finnish Championship and the Derby. For this racing year, he only needs one CC time on track, and he will be the 9th triple champion in Finland. Most of my spare time out of work is spent with the dogs. As an active association member as well as taking care of my dogs, I’m active member of Finnish Basenjis, and also racing

Ajibu Great Expectations committee secretary and treasurer in Finnish Sight Hound Association and a member of the board in Helsinki Kennel District. From my point of view, racing and coursing competitions are a great way to spend summer weekends. Meet friends, see plenty of dogs in splendid condition – and see them running; doing what they love best.

PROACTIVE IS ... AS PROACTIVE DOES: AKC and The Reputable Hobby Breeder By Karla Schreiber

The

B-LEGAL Blog

The implication of the exposé is that AKC is “in charge” of how breeders who register with AKC conduct their operations, and that AKC itself – if it so desired – is capable of “cleaning up the acts” of breeders who violate state and local ordinances.

THIS

quarter’s column isn’t technically about a legal issue – it is about public perceptions of the “sport of purebred dogs” and the people who breed purebred dogs. On May 1, 2013, NBC’s Today Show (USA) ran an exposé regarding the American Kennel Club, allegedly prompted by questions raised by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other animal rights groups concerning AKC’s kennel inspection practices, and why AKC wasn’t doing more to put “bad breeders” out of business. The implication of the exposé is that AKC is “in charge” of how breeders who register with AKC conduct their operations, and that AKC itself is – if it so desired – capable of “cleaning up the acts” of breeders who violate state and local ordinances.

L

ike many fanciers who watched this segment, I agreed wholeheartedly with AKC’s corporate expression of outrage. It does, in fact, appear that AKC provided accurate information to Jeff Rossen – the reporter responsible for the exposé – and that Mr. Rossen and NBC chose not to include important facts presenting AKC in a positive light. I fully understand why AKC immediately turned to the breeder community – those of us who participate in AKC events and register our dogs with AKC – with requests to contact the producers of the Today Show and NBC executives to express outrage over the inaccuracies in the segment and to defend the “honor” of AKC. That being said, I want to share some additional thoughts on this incident, and what I believe it says about long-standing problems at AKC.

AKC did not move AKC’s hegemony when it comes to volume breeder registrations, proactively to attempt to dilute the impact of the piece, or perhaps it is time for AKC to finally make a public commitment potentially stop it from airing. Why? Yet again, AKC took a to support the reputable, “low-volume,” hobby breeders who are passive “we are the victim” stance. AKC allowed negative, the true backbone of AKC.

BREEDER INTERVIEW

Brenda Cassell SIGNET BASENJIS BIS/BISS CH Signet Meisterhaus Gossip Girl

How long have you been involved in the breed?

MY

family purchased our first basenji, a red/white kennel. We made contact, were sent pedigrees and photos, and bitch named Simba Bantu Vixen, in the summer selected a puppy by Ch. Khajah’s Gay Excelsior, who sadly broke of 1972. I remember coming home from summer his leg in an accident in the backyard. Shirley replaced him with vacation in Montana, to find Simba in our kennel run to replace an another young male, Khajah’s Written on the Wind (Windy) with old beagle of my stepfather’s that had passed. Shortly afterwards, whom we began to experience some success in the show ring. my stepfather, John Stonbraker, a Denver Parks Police officer, met We then contacted June Young in California and bought another a couple walking a handsome red male in one of the parks where he young female, Changa’s Honeykissed, pointed, but not yet finished, was assigned. Jack and Jean Theno were involved in conformation My stepfather chauffeured me around Colorado and Wyoming while and had a handler that showed for them. They befriended our family, I showed and finished both to their championships piloting Windy encouraged us to breed to their male, Kai’s Gallant to a Best of Breed win in Nebraska over the famous Early Beginnings Warrior, and introduced us to Earl and Diane Laue Ch. Shadowbye’s Mitty, who was at the peak of his Brenda in the Junior ring of the Tamarango kennel. incredible career. These two beautiful dogs were meant Not satisfied with the quality of puppies to be the foundation of our own breeding program produced, we decided to purchase a red male, Pharaoh until my parents divorced in 1979. I graduated high Saite Necho, although we were warned not to buy school, married and moved to Casper, Wyoming in a dog from this particular backyard breeder.

Did you have a breed mentor? If yes, did your mentor provide guidance you’re still using today? Please explain. Diane Laue generously shared her knowledge of the breed. She visited our home on a few occasions to evaluate puppies and taught me the basics of how to show a basenji. I remember two things that she taught me. One was ‘control the head, control the dog’. This is probably THE most important lesson to learn with any animal, but particularly valuable in our breed. The second thing Diane taught me was how to hand stack a basenji to appear square and how to set a rear to get the most out of the amount of angulation a dog naturally has. I took advantage of those with knowledge with whom I came into contact, both breeders and judges, but in the end I have no problem making my own decisions. When considering a potential breeding, what factors play a role and why?

faulting and knowing the lines you are working with. The quality of the dogs you choose is paramount. It costs as much to feed a “bad” dog as a “good” dog…and costs significantly more to finish one. Study bloodlines and buy the very best bitch you can find, one whose quality is comparable to that of the bitches that the breeder would keep. Work with a breeder with years of experience and make certain your personalities mesh well as this is a long-term relationship. It would behoove you to enter such a contract as you would a marriage. I always keep the two best puppies out of a litter for several months, and continually reevaluate them until I am certain which one is the best to retain for my breeding program based on the current trends that I am seeing in my kennel. Testicles can fail to descend, bites can go off; it’s always wise to have a backup plan. Once I am satisfied with my decision, the second puppy is then made available to a show/breeding home or for export. Don’t allow emotions to dictate which puppies to keep as breeding prospects. Falling in love with a puppy at birth should not cloud your decision to allow that pup to enter a loving show or companion home, and keep the better pup. If you can’t remain objective you will never be a great breeder.

I am first attracted to a beautiful dog and I can appreciate various structural ‘types’ for the strengths they possess. Secondly, there is NO substitute for soundness. I carefully critique my bitch looking for her strengths and weaknesses and Describe a breeding/litter from your past also noting any similarities coming or present that you are most proud of as from her parents. Since I have well as, one you are looking forward to several generations of dogs of which in the future? I have personal knowledge I can easily distinguish what I need to improve, Certainly I do the best I and where I can take a chance and feel can with each mating. Sometimes a safe that my bitch can carry off, bred breeding really clicks, and you get to a male with a less desired trait. I several amazing puppies, or, if you always make certain not to double up are indeed fortunate, an entire litter of on any negative trait and cross fault stars. Occasionally a litter does not live carefully for structure, soundness, and up to your expectations. You take note, temperament. I study the pedigree of make adjustments and move on. I’ve the potential stud dog along with any never been a fan of repeat breedings. health concerns in his line. Newsflash: Regardless of what I get, I prefer the Everyone has health problems.

There are exceptions to this and to any rule. Singleton to a planned breeding. There are other tests available for breeders litters or very small litters and litters weighted too heavily in one to utilize as they see fit.

Although it is necessary to outcross such as Kibushi, Arubmec, Sonbar and Meisterhaus has been one now and then, I can’t stress to strongly the importance of cross of the key elements to my success.

Which one dog, that you bred, do you feel conforms closest to the breed standard and why? This is an easy choice for me. The singleton puppy MBISS Ch. Nyanga Signet Sweet William, JC. From his miraculous birth to his stellar career (completely owner handled) Will proved daily that he was an exception. This dog rose to the top on his own merits, as a 10 month old puppy, beating specials from the classes on three specialty weekends, and finished with three 5 point majors and a Best in Specialty Show. Although he competed against one of the greatest basenjis of our era, MBIS/MBISS Ch. Zindika’s Johnny Come Greatly during his career, Will enjoyed great success himself through last July, 2012 when, at nearly 14 years of age, he was again awarded Best Veteran in Sweeps takes at our National Specialty. Will is the epitome of the breed standard, standing nearly square at 17 ¼” and 24 lbs with a correct headpiece, textbook perfect angulation front and rear with sound and balanced movement. Topped off with a brilliant red coat which he maintains to this day, he is still a force to be reckoned with in the ring. Winner of the Pedigree Award, multiple Hound Groups and Best in Specialties, Top Hound Producer, National Specialty winner and multiple Veteran and Sweepstakes winner, this dog has proven that his quality has stood the test of time. Which basenjis outside of your breeding program do you feel have had a positive impact on the gene pool as a whole? Why?

MBISS Ch. Nyanga Signet Sweet William, JC

There are so many. I feel that each exemplary dog leaves his stamp for generations to come. BIS/MBISS Ch. Arubmec’s The Victor, MBIS/ MBISS Ch. Akuaba’s Tornado, MBIS/MBISS Ch. Reveille Boutonniere, JC are three examples of vastly different types that made a distinct mark on the breed during my journey.

The Modern Basenji - Worldwide - www.modernbasenji.com | 35


How do you feel the breed has changed throughout the years you’ve been involved?

Am Ch. Signet Jay-R Hot Damn 2002 BOB Crufts International titles in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Monaco, Luxembourg, Italy, and Germany

I think like life itself, there are trends and waves both good and bad. It is the committed long-term breeder who sticks to it and rides it out. I’ve seen cycles where the dogs as a whole had outstanding flying sidegait, coupled with bad fronts or dippy toplines. Dogs that stood out in the ring for their remarkable type, but were not sound on the go, nor could they cover ground. The cycles continue as certain studs are chosen for their virtues and trending occurs. Lately as I have stepped back from a heavy show schedule and returned on occasion to the ring I am dismayed by the lack of consistency that I see in general. Temperament however, seems to have continued to improve, and I see our breed in good shape as a solid ambassador in the canine world. Tell us your thoughts on the recently announced DNA Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) test? It seemed to me that PRA was pretty well controlled by breeders in the last 20 years. I guess it is nice to have a definitive test, but I feel like more and more responsibility is placed upon the “reputable” breeder to do every test out there. It is very expensive and cuts down on any chance of making a small profit for those who are not bank rolled. Although I realize most reputable breeders are not breeding for profit, we do not breed for loss either.

BISS Am/Can CH Signet Denim and Diamonds

Please share some stories that highlight the accomplishments (breeding, conformation, etc.) you’re most proud of and why. Again there are so many it is hard to shave it down. Certainly winning the National Specialty with Sweet William at the age of seven was a highlight for me as was his Top Hound Producer award. Attending my first Canadian National and cleaning up with WD, RWD, WB, RWB, BOW, BOB and Best Puppy was certainly a moment of great pride. We also won a BIS Hound Puppy on that trip over a huge quality entry. My first Best in Show has been a long time coming. Winning with BIS/BISS Ch. Signet Meisterhaus Gossip Girl was a bittersweet goal coupled with the fact that I was already long disillusioned with the show scene and on my way out of heavy competition. I have been fortunate to have another amazing top Hound producer, Ch. Signet Hillbilly Rock Star. I do not keep track of my wins and accomplishments. They are only committed to my memory. I have no idea how many champions I have produced under the Signet prefix or as co-breeder. Please tell us how you decided on your kennel prefix? I was browsing an Avon catalog with Erin Roberts, Michelle Carter and Linda Brown, who owned Ch. Falisha’s Night Odyssey,

BISS Am/Can CH Sonbar’s Nyanga Signet Dan D’Lion

when I saw the Signet fragrance. I like the idea that a signet was a mark of distinction on royal documents. It embodied where I wanted my breeding program to go and how I hoped it would be perceived. What advice would you offer to a new breeder just starting in the breed? • • • • • • • • •

Study the standard. Study dogs of all breeds ringside. Watch videos of old dog shows, especially National Specialties. Find a mentor, or two. Learn about conformation and movement. Form follows function. Buy the best bitch you can find. Never breed to your own male until you develop a line several generations deep. Choose the BEST dog for your bitch, regardless of what others think of your choice or your relationship with the stud dog owner. Use health testing as the tool it was meant to be. It is not the deciding factor for everything. Buy a second bitch that is better than the first. It is always good to have a backup plan. Be honest in your dealings with your peers and your puppy buyers. People are more important than dogs. Value and protect your friendships; though you may have to step away at some point, always leave your option open for reconciliation. As there is no perfect dog, neither are any of us perfect. Relationships are key to success at any level. 

ell, folks, the 2013 DFW Basenji Club Specialty is now history. Held on Friday evening, March 22nd at Will Rogers Coliseum, it was lots of fun, and we had plenty of nice dogs and their people present. Attendance numbers were down a bit from recent years but what with the increased travel prices, it was not too surprising to me. What really mattered was the great dogs we did have, and the friendly competition we all experienced.
