Tre and I traveled to Kentucky and as novices won ourselves our first major – a 5-pt major over stiff professional basenji handlers (ie. E. Roberts, M. Work, T. Brooks, B. Cassell.)
The next day we took a 5-pt major reserve. I was hooked.
Tre garnered multiple BOBs over specials during his short show career with me as his pilot.
Tre is the only basenji to go BIF and HIT at the same National Specialty.
Tre finished his AKC FC with a Best In Field 5-pt major in addition to his three 3-pt majors.
In 1997, in only 11 trials (less than 6 weekends), Tre earned the #3 basenji spot in the top 10 ASFA ratings. Tre continued to run well even as he matured and finally earned his LCM at 11 years, 10 months and 18 days of age.
Tre is my Novice A dog. He earned his AKC-CD in, I believe, three straight trials. His scores were 188.5, 193 & 190.
He also qualified in UKC Novice B four times, all scores between 190-194; not bad for a Novice A basenji!
His AKC-CDX took much longer (17 attempts?!) He did manage a specialty High In Trial. .
Tre was trained through Utility but Sage was the rising star so Tre retired.
Agility was just getting off the ground so we did not participate that much during Tre’s career. His most memorable agility memory was when he was 12 years of age and I entered him as a fluke in Excellent as I needed an Open JWW leg to finish his title. We were entered in a very large, and very competitive, California excellent class. Tre and Rand ended with a perfect run albeit 3 seconds over for a 3rd place finish.
