It must of been nice growing up with them, I,m wondering if you as a child ever used them as a scapegoat to anything you may have done, as they are always getting into something they would be handy to have around as a kid. Were you thinking of getting one yourself or does your experience with them put you off owning your own? I would say you would have enough experience as a child to be able to get the best out of one. You and your husband were both right it was a Shiba and it was a Basenji, wonder what it actually looked like as a mix, interesting. Looking forward to your stories as my boy is only 1 we have yet to write an interesting one(am I asking for trouble or what!).
