Thank you all for the warm welcome!! I've always loved the smart little rascals the most since they keep me on my toes and never fail to give a good laugh. Plus, they REALLY make me step up my tidiness.
Timesthemyth - yes! Huskies/malamutes are such little devils, so that comparison is comforting…although I doubt we'll be letting our guards down anytime soon. 😃
Brian - thank you and so good to hear from a former Nevadan! I was especially happy in my research to find that Basenjis love and crave warmth. The weather here will definitely spoil our little one but there will be plenty of sweaters and bundling for the two cold months out of the year. 🙂
