Meet Mia!

Hi, I just stumbled upon your blog this afternoon and I love it! I thought I would share a few pictures of my Basenji, Mia.

My fiance and I rescued her from the SPCA when she was only 8 weeks old.

Mia is now 1 1/2 years old and is an absolute joy (when she's not being naughty!).

(Naughty? What's naughty? Not me!)

This is Mia pictured with my best friend Elija. When we got her home from the SPCA my friend Elija came over right away to see her. After a few hours of play, she fell asleep on his chest for a few more hours. Ever since then she has had this amazing bond with him. Everytime he comes over she jumps on the back of the couch, stands on his shoulders and SMOTHERS him with kisses! The picture here is one that I took after she got done giving him a good 15 minutes worth of licks, got tired and just laid on his head.
