We are Kees-Jan Donkers and Anne-Marie Mulder from Marken, The Netherlands (a former island, north of Amsterdam).
Last year March we got Lela (26 December 2010, Honey Money's Elinor) as a pup, and in September her older sister (13 January 2010, Honey Money's Bintu) joined us.
Their parents are Abotere's Khamau and Two of a Kind's Lulu.
We never had a dog before and we never wanted anything but a basenji - people warned us but we did it anyway - and it's been a very fulfilling journey ever since.
They are very different characters: Lela the happy-go-lucky I-love-everybody-and-everybody-loves-me princess of play, and Binti the more reserved but very loyal companion (I suspect she would make a fine hunting dog). We are madly in love with them and since we both are home a lot (work and study) have a lot of interaction around the clock - they really do love the sun and cuddling up on your lap or check out what we're doing.
B's are very rare over here, so we get a lot of attention of people of all ages. Fortunately we live in an area with several off-leash possibilities, so they get a good workout every morning - lots of birds to chase. We admire their stamina and the athletic outmanoeuvering of bigger dogs.
