Ciao from Italy!

Ciao to all, πŸ™‚
I'm Sara, I write from Trieste, Italy, a town east of Venice where I live with my fiancee … and Biagio, our year-and-a-half male basenji.. (by the way in Italy Saint Biagio protect and support those suffering from sore throat! πŸ˜‰ )

We chose to take Biagio home after visiting a sort of pet shop where he was kept alone in a box, and was destined to an ugly end because he was nearly 3 months old at that time and had his nose completely pink, yet. :mad:

He is absolutely sweet and easy going with most other dogs and cats, and, eventually, his nose is almost totally black (last summer he got sunburnt during a boat trip since it was still pink!)

Sorry for my English, I will certainly read as much as I can of the forum, but it would be more difficult for me to reply or to tell my stories.. :rolleyes:

Anyway, happy to be get to know this community!!

I'm not sure if it is right to write it here, but for those of you who knows a little bit of Italian... take a look here (we're a lively community and loooooove to host new guests from around the world!)

Hello and welcome! I hope you can post pictures soon!

Hello and Welcome to the Forum.

Greeting from Europe ( Poland):) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Welcome! Here's a toast to Leonardo! You didn't know Mona Lisa had a Basenji did you.

Wilkommen! πŸ™‚ Yeah I know it's German, but I'm from Germany (while living in America) teehee

I loved Pompeii and Capri (went to Italy last year with my mom)

Glad to see you guys here with your B!

Welcome to the forum, it is a great place to share Basenji information and make new friends! Since you are Italian, you know the meaning of my Basenji girl's name… Bella Bambino Biamondi (she is a girl... my Italian is limited to a few words and I found out later it should have been Bambina). The Biamondi is similar to my great-granparents last name whe they came to America from Italy! πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ I dream of someday traveling to Italy!!! Hopefully my dream will come true...

well English speaking you have less problems with gender!!! Anyway, Bella Bambino is a real good name!
this reminds me there was a mare (I think at the beginning of the XIX cent., in England), a pure bred, called Signorina (=miss) who never won a race, and her owner had no money to find a famous stallion for her, but she fell in love at first sight with a stalion, not a real winner… Signorinetta (little signorina) arrived eleven months later and she became a very super star and won lots of races!!! that's the power of love!

Sorry, I like this true story so much I wanted to tell you! πŸ™‚
