I can't believe it's been over two years since Nayru came into my life. She's had a few merry adventures involving the front door and FREEDOM. I was walking the foster dog (last spring) and all of a sudden there was Nayru running up to us. :| I sat down and she came right up to me so I was able to snag her. Another time I didn't quite get the door closed, but she came hauling back in when I said, "Batman, treat?" Her native Basenji jealousy was immediately engaged. Still feel like I narrowly dodged bullets both times. I live in a gated community but a savvy B could waltz out easily when cars are coming in or out.
But life with Nayru continues to engage me and keep my mind active. I've noticed a change in her personality too. She's just more settled somehow. As if she knows that this really is her forever home. Took about 18 months for that to really sink in for her, I think.
Now she's a fairly normal B girl who steals tortillas off the counter and then looks completely innocent when caught with half a flour disk hanging out of her mouth. LOL
