When Basenjis wanted to come in they wanted to come in now. Bashing the see-through door with their smelly little toes was not beneath them. Bosco brought a wood tick home, probably from the park. Starting this week there are Basenjis up for adoption down the right sidebar. Clicking on a picture will connect the viewer with Colorado Basenji Rescue (CBR) the rescue group from which our Kiko and Milla both came. There are other Basenji rescue groups, some of whom are listed below. If you want to adopt, and you already love Basenjis, it is a good fit. Everybody loved a Basenji.

The 21st and 31st were Dawn and Gary's birthdays respectively. Nancy got them a gardening kneeler that made getting up from the ground much easier. Kiko, Bosco and Milla had to check out the gift after they checked out Nancy. The gas co. installed a new meter, adding new admirers to the pack's ever longer list. "You mean they NEVER bark" usually appears early in the conversation. Kiko was the biggest kisser of the bunch. Bosco hung back, but warmed quickly. Milla was the czarina (long story) who deigned to be touched. Have a lovely day.

Dawn built a patio for the hammock so she would not be forced to mow that little patch of grass, and so the hammock did not need to be moved every time she mowed. Fiendishly clever these women. A toad appeared in the grass, much to the amusement of Kiko and Milla. About the time they thought they had the toad figured out, it jumped and freaked them out, in much the same way that changes made a person feel, shocked and surprised.

They hadn't asked for their bells to be returned. They loved the new walks, and always stayed on them unless it was something important that made them get off. It made them feel important. Their feet stayed clean and they could see that nothing was waiting to jump out at them. Basenjis didn't live with people; people lived with basenjis.
