Oh couldn't agree with you more! I was amazed at how calm, sweet and socialized they are. I wanted to pet them so bad, but didn't want to upset them - you know how most B's are with strangers. They acted like I was "no big deal" standing and talking - I asked if I could pet one of them. Kelli said sure! I got to pet all 3 she had with her and back at her booth there were 2 others, equally calm as cucumbers. Kelli really has wonderful dogs . . . and so do both of you.
Tyson also has those same qualities as very calm, sweet, and very cuddly. I love his temperament. Each one of our b's have their own personality. One that thinks she is the boss, one that doesn't want to be bothered, and than lovable Tyson.
Also I did not intend my comments about Tyson being lean to be a criticism of Kelli. She did tell me she tends to keep her basenji's on the leaner side.
