Alaska was great fun for Maggie. Her nose stayed in overdrive with all the Heavenly smells from moose, fox, bears, caribou, wolves, sheep and buffalo. As you can imagine, with all those strange and wonderful new animals came the opportunity to “check out” poop. If we didn't pay attention, Maggie would roll in every poop pile she came across!
Yes, life is good for our B girl. Everyday she makes us laugh with her silly antics. She likes to “drop dead” at our feet, her signal for a tummy rub. She prances around like a Lipizzaner Stallion trying to keep the mosquitoes off her ears (this technique came in handy in Alaska). We call her the Princess because she likes to sleep in until 9:00 AM, she expects to be rewarded with a treat for EVERYTHING she does, she will go on a sit down strike when she’s had enough walking, and of course, she only comes when she wants to!
Our grandchildren call her Maggie Waggie because her tail never stops wagging! She is the most patient dog ever. We dress her in silly costumes (holiday photos to send our grandkids) and she just sits there with an expression of sheer contempt on her face. We are so grateful to Basenji Rescue & Transport for allowing this wonderful B girl into our lives.
