I just discovered the forum through a friend. We brought home our first basenji a little over 7 years ago. He was a much anticipated Christmas gift for our son who had researched the breed and set his heart on a basenji. He named him Tucker and he made short work of enchanting us and changing our lives forever. When Tuck was 5 mo old we brought home 4 mo old Milly to be a playmate for him. I came across a picture one day of a brindle and voiced my delight and desire to someday have one of my own. In a chance meeting at a show my husband set in motion making that a reality for me despite my proclamation we really didn't need another puppy right then. I stand today corrected as Presley and I were meant to be together.
We enjoy showing in conformation. Tucker (Red) became Ch. Birchs I'm A Dream Come True 5/05, Milly (Red) became Ch. Lacada's Energizer Bunny 10/06 and Presley (Brindle) became Ch. Jazzeta's I Was The One JC 7/07. My husband decided he needed a new show puppy. So in March of 2008 Lola (Black) joined the family. We were thrilled to announce we were 4 for 4 when Lola became Ch. Signet Dangerous Liaison 2/10. We have yet to breed a litter but haven't ruled out that possibility at some point in the future. Right now we are simply enjoying life with 4 curly tailed clowns running through our home and grateful for the wonderful friends these magical creatures have brought into our lives.
