How should we enunciate "mku"? mmmm-cue? em-koo? emck-you?
Mku ! (the M is almost silent, just a closing of the lips).
Throughout ???? litters, my dogs have always had a Swahili word describing the character, behaviour or attributes of a Basenji as their registered name.
I was allowed to pick a name for my wee boy and went back to the old system. His call name is part of his registered name because it kind of suits him and he is happy with it. Normally dogs tell me what they'd like to be called.
Hoover is obvious. Its what she does !!!
I guess, tanza, you looked him up - did a search in the database on the part of the name you know !
That database has its uses - just wish more people who bought puppies this past few months would let me know their registered names and parents so they could be included !
Along with photos !
