What?! This is crazy!
Do you have the original link for where this appeared?
Found it somewhere on Sled Dog Central Forums, but can't find the topic back.
Been looking a bit further and also found it here, but no more info about it.
It's gotta be a breeder from Finland or Sweden right ? Were the breed has presence in such weather ??…
A lot of country's where you can have such weather. Looking at his cloths, guess it is a pic from 50-60 years ago.
I saw that years ago, tried to find out who they were, but the one I had was the color one. If you find out, let me know! There is another one with just 4 basenji but it was on my old computer and I didn't transfer it (accidentally).
FYI the image shack photo says:
qui a eu cette id?e stupide de changer des basenjis en chiens polaires…je trouve que cela manque de respect et de connaissance de la race
French - detected to English translation
who had this stupid idea to change huskies for Basenjis ... I find this lack of respect and knowledge of the breed
I love this picture and all the possibilities that it represents for our breed. It circulates on chat lists from time to time.
If my memory is any good, the owner / musher is Annie Davis, kennel name : "Here Comes Basenjis." Am/Can Ch.Marabasi's Belle of the Ball is the lead dog.
Annie lives in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Last December (2010), her mobile home burned to the ground. At that time she was not doing well physically and still had four Basenjis. That is the last news I can remember.
Great info! Found a few others who do some mushing with Basenji's also. One who uses a cart and 2 who do ski-joring.
I'm moving to Lapland (Swedish part) next month, so will check it out myself then. Going to work with sleddogs, so will try to let Voodoo run in a team and do some ski-joring with him. Think he gonna like that! :D
