A crazy bunch of critters

Tortoise-shell cat

Sophia, “the extra dog,” finally sat still and let me take a picture of her face!

Boomer was the original crazy basenji.  He was my second basenji, and was an incorrigible  character. Chief was his younger full brother, and Ramses is his great nephew and heir apparent.  Striker was  Chief’s daughter, and a diva of the first water. (The Extra Dog is not related.)

  1. What a fabulous pack of critters!

  2. Thank you. They have been the source of great joy — and irritation — over the years (but what good dog isn’t a multi-tasker?). Sadly, only the Puppy and the Extra Dog are still with me.
