Basil Beagle

Champion Brialey Clarence Burke E.T.

Date of birth: 27 April 2006, left us December 2018

Sire: Australian Champion Dufosee Jerold (Imp UK)

Dam: Brialey Hot Gossip

Basil was our introduction to the world of Beagles....and what an introduction he was!!!  He was my best mate and never, ever let me down!!!  Together we achieved more than I ever would have believed possible...

Basil successfully completed his Endurance Test (a 20 kilometre run) in May 2010...which means he carries the title of ET along with his conformation Championship title....

Basil travelled to the UK with the rest of the family in 2007 which provided the opportunity to realise  a childhood dream...not only did I get to handle a dog at Crufts, but I got to handle my own boy to 3rd in a class of 17 Special Yearling Dogs at Crufts 2008!

Although only exhibited sparingly whilst overseas, Basil did us proud (just as he had done here in Australia prior to his departure)...he was always placed in his classes at both Championship and Open shows under UK breed specialists!!

Basil made the occasional appearance at shows upon our return to Australia and continued his ‘winning ways’, gaining well over 150 CC points in less than 10 months of showing....not bad for a dog that was only there to keep his ‘mum and sisters’ company. Highlights included two Best in Groups (Group 1) and a Runner up in Group (Group 2)

I had to say goodbye to Basil in December 2018...Brain and Lesley - thanks for breeding this delightful boy and for providing us with some amazing experiences in the show ring, both here and in the UK!
