Major CHAMPION Moving Man!
  • "Bristow" finished his championship (with four majors!) as Winners Dog at the Willamette Valley Basenji Club Specialty show under hound-breeder-judge Jan Leikam.
  • "Bristow" is a littermate to Mary K and Larry Quinnett's "Top Ten" boy "Joe" namely Ch Platinum's Fear Is Not A Factor.
  • Bristow has a very handsome headpiece and super slick inky black coat.
  • His greatest asset is his pause gait - which has, unfortunately, become a rarity in this breed. This gait is reminiscent of his grand-uncle "Tre" and one that once seen is unmistakable. For those who may have never seen a pause gait before, it is notable because it is the epitome of efficiency.
    To quote our Standard: First paragraph (the most important "soundbite" of any Standard) "elegant and graceful"... "effortless" gait.... Again quoting the "Gait" paragraph of our Standard: "Swift, tireless trot. Stride is long, smooth, effortless and the topline remains level." The pause gait - a rare quality of movement is seen only when all four feet are off the ground simultaneously (as in perfect balance fore and aft), AND the dog appears to actually float seemingly to defy gravity as the footfall gracefully touches ground again in perfect rhythm stride after stride.
  • After being major pointed, Bristow placed 2nd of 12 in an outrageously competitive Open Black and White dog class at the 2006 BCOA National Specialty in Rhode Island.
  • Awarded Best of Breed and Group 4 under noted hound specialist Betty-Anne Stenmark in very stiff breed and hound competition
  • Bristow lives in Kirkland, WA with his doting dad and co-owner, Aaron Michael Jackson.
  • Bred by: Mary K Quinnett

  • OFA "Good" #BJ-2041G43M-VPI
  • AVID Microchip #1286242
  • ...and yes, that is a photo of Bristow as a "beach boy" - buried up to his neck in sand. What a character!
  • Bristow is the sire of my: "Maj" who won her age class at the 2008 EBC Futurity and "James" who was awarded Best Puppy in Sweepstakes at the 2008 WWHA Hound Show the day after the EBC Specialty and Best-Bred-By-Hound at the Walla Walla KC all-breed show.
