Well, I won't be there for the home welcoming, but I wanted to share my enthusiasim somewhere. Mom and Dad have 1 rehomed dog arrived and 1 more on the way!
We lost our first B, Cinnamon, last year and since have been waiting for the right dogs to fit our family's home. The dogs had big shoes to fill. Mom and I were keen for 2 Bs but Dad wanted the second to be a doggie dog.. of course not really. He really wanted a Basenji (no odor, no excessive shedding, smart etc) but that was slightly larger and loved fetching, and acted like a dog dog. Solving this one was difficult but we are very pleased to say that as of yesterday Mom and Dad just received their new "redhead" Pearl - a Hungarian Vizsla from a rescue coordinator. She did brilliantly in the car, making the journey from Nevada to San Francisco with ease. She is still in that settling stage, not quite knowing what is going on, but my goodness is she cute.
AND FOR THE B (:D:D:D:D:D) The lovely Therese Leimback, is graciously trekking down from Oregon with Tucker in a few weeks time. Tucker is a positively stunning boy, who has been uncleing Therese's pups. Our family is in agreement that the family house doesn't feel right without a Basenji in it so we are very very honored to be getting the opportunity to provide a new home for this gentleman. Expect a picture overload in a few weeks.
All the new doggie excitement is enough to make me want to fly home ! Also enough to start pester the BF to put my deposit down for winter 2012 Lycia is dying for a brother and so am I…
Sorry for the rant, but I was so happy to see things finally be sewn together and my parent's house be whole again!!
