Hi!, Im new and I am DEFINATLY a fan of the basenji, in fact, since owning JUST one so far, I am hooked!! And refuse to ever buy a different breed of dog. My name is Kira , My husband is Geoff and my Basenji is Capt. Jack (Jackers). Jack is four. And my husband and i are 21. we live in CT. Im a Teacher and my hubby is in the USN. I am nine weeks and a few days pregnant with our first child. Jack is the first dog my husband and I have owned together, (we have been married since July 2006) hmmm. hehe, Well Jack is great we rescued him, hes nutered, chestnut and white (see my avatar), VERY smart, sneeky (evil somtimes), very beautiful, but has some seperation anxiety. He LOVES going to the dog park, but has a problem with male non nutered dogs ( NO CLUE WHY!!) soo, i think thats enough about us, lol. NICE TO MEET YOU ALL!!!
My wife and I got our first dog together (a Basenji of course) just after getting married. Less than 2 years later we got another. I didn't know how attached I was to them until we lost one last year. She was 14. Our friends talked about other breeds available, and I decided I'm not really a "dog person" as much as a "Basenji person". We now have 2 more! There are a lot of Basenji nuts on this site too! Welcome to the forum.
We're just outside of Cincinnati and have two 1 yr olds. (Select) Bonnie Bell came from Dr Tracy near Dayton. We drove nearly to Illinois to get Smitty. Smitty is a Hacker Basenji and he is closely related to the girl we lost last year. Ramsey is 12 – don't want to forget the old guy. Oh, sorry this was YOUR introduction thread! Nice to meet another midwesterner.
