Arrival Story: Apache is Cheyenne's half sibling. After Dakota went to the Bridge, I had a large hole in my heart. I wanted to honor his memory by loving another little Basenji boy. I was put on our breeders waiting list and Jetta had only the one boy in her litter. He is a beautiful dog and the breeder wants him shown. We will co-own with her, I will train him for the show ring and be showing him myself. It's my first attempt at this and I really want to get it right. He is adorable and I do believe Dakota would approve.
Apache got his Championship in June of 08. In May of 11, he has been diagnosed with Fanconi Disease.

On February 3 of the year 2015, I said goodbye to my earthly body and now fly free. I am once again able to run at top speed and I do...... through the beautiful green fields at the Rainbow Bridge. Some of my friends ... Banners, China Moon and Francis are there. I got to meet my Unkle Stormie, the always smiling Angus and so many others....I also met the ones Mom and Dad have loved before me, Dakota and Shawnee.
I got tired of fighting the Fanconi Syndrome along with the other health issues that I recently endured. Mom tried hard to get me to take all my pills but when she saw the look in my eyes one day while fighting me to get them down, she knew I would not take them anymore and that I had made the choice to leave.
I know her heart is broken...how could it not be, I was AWESOME, but I was tired and just couldn't go on. That she loved me enough to let me go is why she's a great mom.
I know I will see her one day and I hope that knowledge keeps her tears at bay and that someday she will find another little basenji boy to love.
Mom and I drove to Flagstaff for a show and I WON!!!!! It was a 4 point major and I got Winners Dog and Best of Winners. I am now CH Astarte's Apache River With Pips. A BIG THANK YOU to the judge...Mrs Murrel Purkhiser!
