    She was my black beauty,gentle friend,best mommy dog.
    She will be missed by me ad her constant companion,her
    She was 15 years and 4 months old.
    I would like to post more ,but not now
    It is still too fresh in my mind and I can't process it right now.
    Sleep well my baby girl

  • Was so upset writing I forgot to sign my post.


  • I feel for you Kathryn. It never gets easier to lose them.


  • Kathryn, i am very sorry to hear of your loss of Classy.
    Run free little girl

  • I'm so sorry, it is so hard no matter what their age.

  • Classy was such a great little basenji. I bred her and her mom and also had her grandmother.
    Now, I also have 3 daughters and a son to keep the line going.
    Her daughter,Indy will be bred to my dog, Rocky.
    Hope to pass on Rocky's racing ability and Indy's' wonderful,sweet temperment
    Classy was a gentle mom dog and also such a great teacher.
    Teaching her pups to always be gentle and racing until she was 14 years old.
    Never a fast dog,she was honest
    Not a champion, but a champion at heart.
    She is missed by all who knew her.


  • It sure sounds like you named her right! Again, condolences. Sounds like a hard act to follow, but since you have her offspring, you still have some of her. A gentle, honest dog is such a blessing.

  • It never gets easier when we have to let them go, they are all special. Memories last forever. All the best.

  • So very sorry for your loss. They leave a huge hole in our hearts. Classy sounds like the perfect basenji.

  • First Basenji's

    Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
    Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight.
    I am at peace, my souls at rest.
    There is no need for tears.
    For with your love I was so blessed.
    For all those many years.
    There is no pain, I suffer not,
    The fear now all is gone.
    Put now these things out of your thoughts,
    In your memory I live on.
    Remember not my fight for breath
    Remember not the strife.
    Please do not dwell upon my death,
    But celebrate my life.
