Greetings from Athena and her family


  • Hello everyone! I just found the Basenji forums yesterday, and I am so happy I did!

    We have one basenji, Athena, and she is a joy. Also a mystery and a pain in rear, but that's how they are!

    ^–--That's Athena in my avatar. Wearing her pink sweater (my daughter chose it) and lounging in the garden window.

    We also have a Fox Terrier, and 2 elderly cats.

    I am looking forward to reading all the information, and learning more about our crazy, wonderful dogs.

  • Welcome. Post some more pics. We love pictures. Your Athena looks adorable. I love the sweater.


  • Hello and welcome to the forum. Can't wait to see more pics.


  • Welcome! This is a fun, informative site…She looks adorable in her pink sweater! Looking forward to seeing the rest of your "family". My grandparents had a male Toy Fox Terrier while I was growing up...his name was Tiger, which was very appropriate - LOL! But he loved me!!


  • Hi Melissa,

    Welcome! Who is Athena's breeder?


  • WElcome Melissa & Athena!!!


  • Thanks for the warm welcome all!

    Athena was bred by Katie Campbell of Taji. Her fancy name is Taji's Profitable Annuity. Her parents are Taji's Trinidad Tradewind (sire) and Taji's Go For Baroque (dam).

    She is a bit on the small side and has some gait issues (she lifts her front feet like a Lippizaner - we thinks it's cute), so she is a not a show dog. She is content to run the household from her little patch of sunshine!

    I will definitely post more pictures, as soon as I find the transfer cord for the camera….:)

    Yay! I thought that was the Athena that I know!! We have her sister, Bella (Ch Taji's Closing Bell at Quercus JC) she is in my avatar, and also in some pics in my member album…oh, and at my website if you want to see more of her 🙂 I think we met at the Evergreen Basenji Club specialty the year the girls were puppies?


  • We did meet at the Basenji Specialty! Bella was so cute sitting on your lap. I know I have a picture of all 4 pups lined up somewhere from that event.

    I wondered if that was the Bella I knew! Good to 'meet' you again!


  • Welcome to both of you!
