||Louie, Lou, Lou-Lou, Louis Lester (when I'm being naughty)
|Birth Day, Month and Year:
||I am an AKC (American), CKC (Canadian) and International conformation Champion. Because I love to show, I'm also about to start competing with a young lady in Junior Showmanship. I am a Canine Good Citizen, a remarkable achievement for a Basenji.
I has sired eight puppies in two litters and they are all good-looking kids.
I've trained for Agility competition and lure coursing.
Mom says I'm one of the best yodelers in all history! I always sing to her (or anyone) when she comes home.
|My pet peeves:
||Obedience (ick!) and other male Basenjis, with the exception of my wonderful brother, Sonny.
||Flirting with girl dogs at the dog park, carrying around huge stuffed animals, striking gorgeous poses, and breaking into the kibble bin.
|My favorite hang out spot?
||Wherever my people are!
|My favorite grub:
||I eat Evo, canned & kibble with salmon oil mixed in as my normal food, as well as a frozen raw turkey neck once a week to keep my teeth clean. No dentists for me!
|My favorite treat:
||my favorite treat is ice cream. Take me to DQ now, please?!
|My favorite tricks:
||I have lots! I know obedience commands, but usually pretend that I don't. I mean, come on! How embarrassing! What if one of the guys found out? I'd become a laughing stock! One of my favorite tricks is "Stallion", in which I paw the air with my front legs like a TV stallion would do (you can see a picture of me doing this in the gallery at the bottom of my page)
|What I love about my owner:
||She believes in me and is proud of my accomplishments! She has always seen my handsome potential as a show dog, my personality potential to become a Canine Good Citizen and my athletic potential to compete in performance events.
She takes me to the offlead park so I can run with Sonny and my birth moms (canine and human) and flirt with the girls (any breed, ladies!).
She enters me in dog shows so I can show off my studly physique and floating movement.
She trains me with patience, even when I make it challenging for her.
She thinks I'm funny, and I can get by with lots of "OH, LOUIE, NO!" stuff, if I get her to laugh.
But most of all, she loves me like crazy and knows how lucky she is to have me in her life!
||Louie, Lou-ie, ooooh-oh, we gotta go ... dog show!
Life is good, baby!
