Today we allowed our Hafta to pass. She went peacefully, but I have to add this post so that she may pass with grace and respect.
In December I had stated that she was the longest running lure coursing Basenji. That was a miss statement of which my wife, Susan is making me correct so that Hafta may pass with grace and honor. What I meant to state was Hafta was the first Basenji to hold the #1 position is ASFA all year in 1996 since Basenji's were admitted into ASFA in 1975, and she was dual champion.
Now that I have corrected that statement, I hope her honor has been restored. She is to Susan and I, more than just a dog or a pet. She was our best friend, confidant and our comfort blanket.
It was so hard to let her go this evening, but we know it was in her best interest.
Thank you so much, all of you whom sent your condolences. We appreciate it more than you will know.
So long my best friend. So long.
