We go coursing at the 3M park in Ames several times a year. I think we will be up there in April and Oct this year. I know there is one other basenji boy, who lives in Ames, that comes out to course too. You should bring him over to the park to socialize with the other sighthounds at one of the events. I am getting a girl mid feb, they will be close to the same age.
That sounds like a great idea - I've been looking for events to attend with him. I will definitely bring him over. I'm new to the area so the socialization wouldn't hurt me either! I had been wondering if there were any other Basenjis in Ames. Congrats on your new puppy, we'll have to keep in touch!
