The Norwegian Basenji Speciality 2007

We had yet another speciality show in exceptional summer weather. It was such a nice atmosphere, and describing it in word is rather difficult, so I will try to show it to you all by making a little picture reference to the whole ordeal. I do not have pictures of all the dogs present, but at least some of them.
I would also like to thank my "hired photographers", Erling Clausen, Louise Sandvold and Annika Kåss.

I would also like to thank everyone who made this weekend as wonderful as it were, and congratulate all winners.
