My name is Helena and I'm the very happy & proud owner of two sweet basenji boys. Our family (me, my husband and the boys) live in Southern Finland (and Finland is in Northern Europe as everyone knows, right? :D ).
Older one of the boys is handsome 3-year-old tricolour Karma (Fi Se Ch FiW-10 Bulldobas Catch The Wind) who is my very first dog. I used to have a cat so basenji was not such a big change. I was already used to the idea that there will be no going out on bad weather and to the fact that the animal will only do as I say if it suits him :) I had heard lots of horror stories about basenjis and their destructive ways and I was so amazed when none of it happened! Karma was so sweet and well behaved from day 1. Well, if you don't count the number of food thefts he has been able to perform… :D
My second boy is 2-year-old red/white called Dio (Safeguard's Dijon Bulldobas). He is such a funny sweetheart! You would not believe he is already grown-up, he is always ready to play and run and has loads of energy.
I enjoy dog shows very much and Karma has done very well in the show ring. He was actually number 3 in the Basenji Male of the Year 2010 competition! Dio does not really enjoy showing because he thinks it's so boooooring to stand still, so he enters the ring just every now and then.
Boys have their own web-page, but it is still under construction. I'm hoping to get it translated to english very soon, but is slow going since work comes in the way of hobbies...
