"He maintained that the basenji was the oldest breed on earth, having originated in Central Africa around 5000 B.C., whereas there was no trace of the Afghan hound earlier than around 4000 B.C." ~ Archie Goodwin (referring to Nero Wolfe)

I was just watching the Nero Wolfe episode "Die Like a Dog" and Nero makes a comment about basenjis which I thought I had to document/share : ) I copied the line from the novel, it is phrased differently in the TV version. [ [url]http://nero.wolfe.angelfire.com/26c.htm ]

A smart, well produced, entertaining and wonderful show, highly recommended!
