Arrival Story: I had always liked Basenjis and was living in an apartment that allowed dogs. One day I went to a local pet store and there was a little baby B. I had to have him, and so I did. I now realize he is a puppy mill dog and wouldn't buy from a pet store again, but I will never regret getting him that day.
Bio: Dakota has driven across country on our move from Chicago to LA, he's been nose to nose with a buffalo and seen the Grand Canyon. He has been adopted by my husband and has loved and lost a sister Vizsla at 6 yrs to cancer. He now has a brother Vizsla and to his horror a little sister Basenji. He is a crabby old guy, turning 13 in December.......but is always my little booboo..........................
We had to send Dakota to the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2005. There he will wait with his beloved sister Shawnee until we are all togeather again. Dude, I love you boy and I miss you so very very much. You were more than I could ever have hoped or wished for.
Hey BooBoo..I wake up this morning extremely sad for this is the last first....the first anniversary of your death. It seems like only yesterday and yet again ages ago that I held you in my arms. Words alone cannot decribe the joy you brought me throughout the years or the pain over losing you. Life goes on and you are always with me. I carry you in my memories but mostly I carry you in my heart. There you will always be...my very special boy...and that can never be taken away. I know you are at the Bridge with Shawn and so many wonderful pups that have left their loved ones....for that I am happy...the thought that I will someday see you again holds me togeather....I have faith that I will once again hold you in my arms.....so until that day comes...run the fields and know that I love you always.......Rest in Peace my love
