Wednesday ~ Heart Flutter


I would like to introduce you to my precious little doggie.  His name is Gatsby, and he has stolen both mine and Ryan's heart.  We have had him since he was 8 months old (but I have known him since the day he was born),  and he is a Basenji

Getting photos of this little guy is a challenge, otherwise I would share photos of him all the time.  Most of the time, all he does is hang out with me at home and sleep.  Otherwise, he acts like a puppy, and all he wants to do is play.  He is about 6 1/2 years old.  Our routine is actually pretty cute.  If I have lunch, then he'll decide to have lunch too.  If I've been working on a project for a while, he will casually stop by just to say hi.  Oh, and he can smile too : )

When people meet him for the first time, usually they comment on what a "mellow" dog he is.  If you own a Basenji, you will think this is hilarious, because they are known for their destructive nature....they are not fully domesticated, you see.  However, he is very calm when we take him places, and he is so gentle that babies can feed him.  He will take a treat from your fingers and just barely touch you.

His is also an excellent traveler, and had the best time playing with my mother's two dogs while we were in Washington (he grew up playing with a long haired German Shepherd, so these guys are the perfect playmates).....


Anyone else out there have a cute doggie?  I'd love to see pictures, if you send me a link in the comments section.....

Here's to puppy love!
