You know, I'm surprised that I didn't get in on this thread from the very start, I know that picture very well, I may well be one of the people responsible for it being "out there". It's funny, the blog mentions that the picture is from the '70's… nope sorry, 1993 I'd say. The little tri female running in right wheel position (with her head down) was from my first (and only) Basenji litter. She was born June 22,1992. The names of all the dogs are written on the back of the picture but I don't know where it is. I've got 3 views of that Basenji sled team but the one you usually see is the best.
Sad news about Annie though, she was quite the person. First time I saw her was at the Canadian National in '91, she was gaiting (storming) around the ring and I remember thinking, "this woman is serious, don't get in her way". She used to do competitive weight pulling with her Basenjis too.
I agree with Basenji fan, I love our Boomerang tags. Mine are at least 6 years old and still look great. Double sided for more info, they have deep etching and just don't wear out. They have a lifetime guarantee, too. I have a plastic one for me, too, back when I was bike riding a lot, with name, phone number, doc's name and number, etc. Way cheaper than the 'official' human emergency ID tags (I got the red bone shaped plastic for me, stainless steel ones for the dogs)
Your most likely right… but with ads, we know that there could have been 100 takes to get it right.... so I don't think that this pup just came from the park.... Julie and Kathy Jones in So. Cal has had their B's in a couple of different TV shows... and they say it is really a long, long process with lots of retakes... of course this was just a picture shoot... but still I wonder... and it is something to remember when we are all out walking our kids... especially in the hot sun....
I think I saw Sophie on a b video website and I was so glad that someone else's B made that noise I showed it to my husband and daughter. Thanks for posting that video because as a new B owner we thought we had some kind of devel dog!!! She does it the most to our oldest dog Josie. There are nights she even does it from under our covers in bed when she hears Josie moving out in the living room. Too Funny!!!!
when Roxy wants to play she'll usually push me! lol she runs up to me and does a little grr and pushes me again, if i dont pay attention to her she runs to get her ball and pushes me with it in her mouth until i grab it from her and throw it. if im sitting down on the couch or something she'll run up and throw herself on me jump off look at me and run off so ill chase her. its sooo cute! ahh i love her!!!!
