It snowed from better-than-average Friday all the way through Easter Sunday. Some dogs suffered through winter, but Basenjis raced and wrestled in the snow like it was natural. Mostly, they were little love sponges. Kept warm most of the time, with lavish applications of affection, they went outside most of the time when asked politely. It helped if they could be persuaded it was their idea. A little diluted Campbell's soup, mixed with dog food made them happy campers. It took so little.
