Nicknames: Brown Dog; Monkey; Boo; Mirby; Mister B
Likes: The "Bark Park" levee in New Orleans; butt sniffing; oodles of treats
Pet-Peeves: Strangers reaching to pet him; cats yowling in the neighborhood late at night---makes him koo-koo; Gus, the dog two doors down.
Favorite Toy: His alligator slipper; his Chickie that actually chirps; tennis balls
Favorite Food: He absolutely loves cream cheese, Braunschweiger and in general anything we humans get to consume. No fruit or vegetables
Favorite Walk: Without a doubt the Bark Park on the Levee near the Mississippi River. Many smells, many dogs. Woofs galore
Arrival Story: Basil was a stray 4-month-old New Orleans Black & Tan pup that landed on my doorstep and literally adopted me 10 years ago
He has become my muse and my inspiration. Two years ago, I launched Urban Dog Magazine (www.urbandogmagazine.com) a robust celebration of dogs.
