My totally insane 1yr old says we need some more friends. I guess running all the off-leash parks in town isn't enough! This guy loves snow, swims and will mimic a bark from time to time. We are going to switch from Iams smart puppy to big boy food. Any suggestions? Also, all Basenji fans must see a 1956 American film called "Good-Bye, My Lady" with Walter Brennen and Brandon deWilde. When you have stopped crying, research the story of the dog they used. It is truly amazing and confirms what an amazing breed we all love.
