Andy attained the title of Australian Grand Champion on November 9, 2003 after 2 years and 8 months of showing. In so doing Andy achieved a few more 'Firsts' for Basenjis in Australia. In addition to his 1st All Breeds BIS for a Brindle Basenji, Andy is also the 1st Brindle Basenji Grand Champion; 1st Basenji (Import & Brindle Import) Grand Champion; 1st Non-Red & White Basenji Grand Champion and is also the 1st Brindle Basenji to win a Royal Show Challenge (Hobart 2003).
On August 8, 2004 Andy successfully completed his Endurance Title another first for Brindles and possibly for Basenjis in Australia.
At 5.5 years of age, having amassed in excess of 2000 challenge points and achieved so much for Basenjis in Australia, Andy retired from the conformation arena.
Having nothing more to prove in his adopted country - and with semen collected for use on approved, health tested bitches, Andy repatriated home to his breeder in America on March 14, 2007.
Not willing to just retire back home in the States, at 7.5 years of age and in 5 months of campaigning with Sue, Andy has earned both his Junior & Senior Courser titles, is a Best In Field winner and has both his US conformation and his AKC Field Champion titles.
Andy taught me more about life and living life to the fullest than any human ever has. His departure leaves a huge void in my life that is filled with the most wonderful memories.
Thank you Andy for everything - you are one special little dog
