Happy Birthday, AJ!

Tomorrow, January 3, AJ will be 7 years old. He started out with a family, but the circumstances didn't work out. After five years with his family, he became a happy, spoiled truck dog.

Although my gramma raised Basenji for 50 years in Oregon, I did not ever think I would become "property of." Well, here we are almost two years later and AJ makes me glad I took him in every day.

Happy Birthday, my friend! Let's have many more together.:)

Happy 7th Birthday AJ!! You look great and I think a lot of B's would like to switch career from lazy house dog to spoiled truck dog!

Happy Birthday "Lord of the Truck"

btw, is he 100% Basenji? I have never seen a Basenji with just an "open" tail curl like that.

Yes, I have his pedigree back five generations. Some Basenji have a lazy single-loop tail like AJ. It is not a fault in the show ring. It's just a variation like any other (Trindle, markings, etc.)

Happy Birthday for tomorrow AJ! It's my Elsa's birthday today (she's 5), which I share with her,lol.x

There are many, many Basenjis with open tails, especially many of the Avongara lines.

A very Happy 7th Birthday to you Mr. AJ, King of the Dashboard! You are looking good. Love the pictures Belinda.

Happy Birthday to you, Ms. Noodle and Elsa! I would sing for you but it makes the dog howl in pain…and he carries a tune better than I can. 😃

Happy Birthday to AJ King of the Open Road!! How wonderful it must be to have a career most B's can only dream about. Mine has to settle for Squirrel Patrol in the back yard and trips around the block. Best wishes from Lenora and Abbey who turned 6 on Christmas Day (that's OK, twice the presents!).

First things first - Happy b'day AJ - hope you had a great day!

Nerdy…My 5yo girl Ruby (pure-bred retired champion show dog) has a tail that is looser and open like that. Ruby's droops over her back. I've seen many that have similar and even looser tails than AJ's and my Ruby's. It isn't uncommon.

Happy Happy Birthday TO You!! 🙂 Great Pics! Looks Spoiled as EVER

Happy Birthday to the coolest truckin' basenji, Mr. AJ!!!!! 😃

Best of days…happiest of days...What treats will he get?

Happy Barrooooo day to AJ! Seven is the new three, ya know!

Happy Birthday, AJ - my son is a trucker,and has been told to be on the lookout for the handsome Basenji in the Freightliner as he covers the roads!

AJ gets lasagna with his dinner tonight….yummy!
