Happy Holidays to all!

Christmas Story
OK so I take Buddy over to the SPCA to make a donation and get his pic taken with Santa. I walk up to the SPCA lobby door and a very friendly lady volunteer opens the door and welcomes me in. I sit down and another volunteer lady comes over and is really interested in the dog, asking questions and petting him says "what a beautiful Basenji, I really want one". "What's his name" I say "Buddy" and the lady that let me in the door is standing nearby and says, "oh my gosh my daughter found/rescued Buddy last year. He got out of the gate last year, got scared, took off and ended up 2 miles away. He walked right up to an SPCA volunteer. Can you believe it! Anyway suddenly I recognized the lady and remembered her. She and her daughter Megan brought Buddy to my house. She said when it happened "my daughter calls me on the phone and says "Mom I'm in my car with my first rescue. What do I do now"? I gave her a hug on the way out after the photo and thanked her oh so very much again for finding him. She said "it was our pleasure". Now that made for a great evening! πŸ™‚

What a picture!!! Now that belongs on Christmas cards,lol. So adorable

What a wonderful story, Dan..so happy. I love the picture too..jepp, it ought to be your Christmas card..

You know somebody came in just before me for photos with 3 Basenjis that they had gotten from the same rescue, Karen at Medly Basenji Rescue in So Cal. Everybody at the shelter was amazed to see 4 Basenjis in one night.

I was standing on the side "hey Buddy"!!

Seeing 4 Basenji's in the same place is like playing the lottery and winning, it rarely happens.lol:p

And from the same rescue too! πŸ˜ƒ

Great picture and great story.

Happy holidays and what a great story and picture!

Buddy pulled a Basenji and tried to take the beard with him when I grabbed him off his lap. :D:D

I just love that picture and also the lovely story to go with it. What a coincidence, i bet it makes the picture even more special.

Dan, heartwarming story! And Buddy looks like he is being so good with Santa πŸ™‚

He's great Basenji ambassador.

Great picture!! And a wonderful story πŸ™‚ Happy holidays to you too!

Happy holidays to you too. I love the picture but also the fact that Buddy tried to remove Santa's beard! Typical Basenji!

First Basenji's

Small world! Perfect picture. Buddy really stands out. πŸ™‚

How cute! I gotta get Kismet her first santa picture soon πŸ™‚ I took my kitties to the mall last year and got a photo of them. I asked at my shelter yesterday how come they don't do a santa photo session… their response was they tried it one year but the suit got peed and poo'd on too much! LOL
