Chicken gizzards and hearts; peanut butter; Mom's pop-tarts; Used tissues; Sunbeams!!! Mimi's Yard

Next door neighbor's cats! Bugs; The Mail Truck (White!); Un- invited Four-legged visitors to my yard!

Favorite Toy:
I love my "blue man"; Anything soft and chewy; discarded paper towel rolls; Fresh toilet paper

Favorite Food:
Chicken gizzards and hearts; (If it once clucked or mooed, I'll eat it!)

Favorite Walk:
To the park with Dad so I can threaten the ducks and geese; Down hydro-drive by the Ohio river; Up and down our hill

Best Tricks:
I have none. When you're as cute as I am, tricks aren't necessary!

Arrival Story:
My big sister, Egypt (also a basenji) passed into doggy heaven. Mom and Dad were sad so of course the answer was another basenji (after all we don't smell, bark or need many baths.) They went back to Edgerton's Kennel in Canfield, Ohio and found moi! How lucky was that?

My idea of a great day is having both Mom and Dad at home at my beck and call. I really dig sunbeams and follow them around the house. I am a genius at hiding bone-bones but not so crafty at locating them. Mom's really good at that. She's not as much fun as Dad is, but for a human, she's pretty cool and gives great doggy massages!

Basenji Love

Basenji Love
(with apologies to the writers of “I Wonder, Why?”)

I love Shaki in the morning sun.
I love Shaki, ‘cause she likes to run.
I love Shaki, ‘cause she’s so much fun,
I wonder, why. I wonder, why?

I love Shaki even when she’s coy.
I love Shaki playing with her toy.
I love Shaki ‘cause she gives me joy.
I wonder, why? I wonder, why?

[I don’t need an explanation,
about all this elation.
I know you all feel the same.

If you own a Basenji,
They will surely set you free
From all your cares and woes.]

Don’t try to fathom the thoughts in their head,
Let them cuddle up to you in bed.
Basenji love’s the best when all is said!

We Are Sad Today...

Dear Diary,
Mommy, Daddy, 'n' I are very sad today. This has been a hard week in our family.
My Daddy's brother lost BOTH of his beloved pets only 2 days apart. Blackie, a rescued pekinese who had been horribly neglected went out Wednesday morning early, lay down on my skin-uncle's back stoop and peacefully went to sleep, crossing over the rainbow bridge. My skin-uncle's other dog, Muppy, also a rescue pup, was dying of cancer, unable to eat or walk. She was peacefully euthanized early this morning. My Daddy went with his brother to the vet's office. Daddy said all 3 men were in tears. I am sad, too, because Muppy was my bestest pal 'n' we had such good times playing together. The vet estimated the age of both pups was around 15-16 years old. They will each be sorely missed by all who knew them.
