Mommy told me about a front page article in our daily paper that was about a breeder of Havanese puppies in my home state. 86 puppies and dogs were seized, with four of them found dead at the kennel. This person's web site was still up, advertising puppies for sale. The picture shown of one malnourished pup was heartbreaking, and that was just one of the many that were suffering. What is even more shocking is that this person was at one time the president of the Havanese Society of America and a former judge. Our state has very good laws in place now to keep watch over these "puppy farms," as some are called. My question is how and why did it take so long for the situation to be noticed? Also, a truly caring breeder would certainly ask for help from the outside or from other breeders and/or kennel owners by saying, "I'm in over my head. Help!" The remaining puppies are with caring veterinarians and people now and will receive proper treatment.

It’s been a long 2-weeks, but my Mommy ‘n’ Daddy FINALLY came home. They were in South Africa, ‘n’ I know that’s a Long Way Away. They even went on a safari ‘n’ saw big ol’ animals that could have had them for lunch!!! I’m just glad they did not take ME! They also saw some wild dogs on the safari. These dogs are a special breed found on the Reserve. They say they want to go back, but I’m not sure if I’m going to let them ‘cause of those wild animals walking around. You know, around here raccoons get in our garbage, but there big ol’ baboons get in the garbage cans.
I’m just sooooo glad they are home now, ‘n’ willing to give me lots of tummy-rubs that I’ve been missing out on!

(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!
