Basenjis at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

We just spent Thanksgiving in NY and visited the Met. In the Egyptian section we found these hieroglyphs of Basenjis from Saqqara. Ohh, Loki would just looove to catch a gazelle! He is the big game hunter who will flush deer for us when we are out hiking.

Love those - especially the first one, showing one B biting the other's neck - that is SO Basenji - and something I see every time my two are playing with each other - at least I hope it's playing!?!

First Basenji's

Incredibly cool! I'd love to see these in person! Thanks for sharing Loki and Freya's mom!

Great pics, thanks for sharing

Those are awesome! I think it's cool that they are wearing some form of collar.
Thanks for sharing!

Those pics are really neat to see.

But, I have to admit I was a little disappointed after reading the title. I was expecting/hoping/imaging a story of a couple of basenjis that got loose at the Met and were running around enjoying the exhibits.

Ah, well, probably best the basenjis were just artifacts.

I think you should write a children's book! This would be so cute illustrated.

Loki & Freya's Mom, Thanks so much for sharing!

Hehe, I think they would probably be unwinding the mummies (just like they do with toilet paper), chewing on bones, running B500 loops in the hallways, and then taking well deserved naps in the beds on display in the period rooms…

I wish I could draw, because I can so see these as cartooned illustrations in my head. This would make such a cute story book, or coloring book.
