Bastion (7) is only our second ever full basenji. (Our first was Candle. Funny thing: neither Candle nor Bastion have the ‘concerned’ forehead wrinkles that so many basenjis seem to have.) And I have no idea why this is, but Bastion is the only dog I have ever taken pictures of where more than 3/4 of the pictures (out of nearly 30!) showed him with his eyes closed. I wonder if maybe it was just too bright outside for him or something?
In other news: I don’t know what it is, but in the last two weeks I have run into a huge number of puppies. I am thinking we might need to have another puppy week soon, because I am not sure I can keep myself from posting all these guys at once anyway. SO CUTE.
Bastion is a very handsome boy. I have two red and white basenjis, Audrey and Shaka, and I believe their are two of only three basenjis in the Mission. There is a tri-color named Bamba whom we have met.
I hope ours make it to your blog sometime.
I really need to get down to the Mission more often. There are so many great dogs down there, and such a wide variety, but I’m almost never down there. I hope to run into you and your pups sometime!
Oh, incidentally, have you checked out The House of Two Bows? A basenji (and shiba inu) oriented Bay Area blog. Pretty neat, and some good information there.
Bastion is staying with me these days. I am happy to report he is about to turn 13 and healthy and strong as a horse.
That is so awesome! Give him a tummy rub for me, will you?
