My name is Rich and my wife's is April. I've had many dogs growing up and I wanted another one. While looking through a book I saw a picture of a Basenji. I thought it was so beautiful and wanted to get one as soon as I could. My wife and I read about them, all the pros and cons and decided to go for it. We bought a tri colored and he has grown to be the best dog I have ever had. We love him like he was our own child, hehe. Everywhere we take him people stop and compliment us on how pretty (awesome) our dog is. We bought him just outside of Houston and now we teach English in Korea. We brought him with us and he made a smooth transition to life over here although I'm sure he still dreams of big open fields. We found this forum as we were looking for advice about dealing with fanconi disease. It seems that there is a very high chance that our dog may have it. I have to admit, we are taking this very hard. Anyway, no matter what happens we'll take care of him.
