One of her best things was to launch herself from a papasan into the middle of a dog mosh pit. At 21 lbs she was the 3rd smallest dog there, but that didn't stop her from boxing with a 150 lb Saint Bernard mix. He was appropriately charmed. You can see some of the fun in some videos I made. She isn't afraid of a thing, is she?

Adopting Nayru was one of the best things I've done. I used to own/show a pair of Basenjis. My female was a little British import named Azenda Nuffsaid. I called her Tammie Jean or "No No Tammie." I'd never met a Basenji before I went to meet Tammie. It's by the grace of the Gods that I survived Basenji Ownership 101 with a hard-headed 1 year old. But she was with me for 11 more years and I treasured each of them. Now I have a B in my life again. I am fortunate that this one--while a typical mischievous, too-smart-for-her-own collar Basenji girl--is in my home and under my covers.
My ongoing and continual thanks to Melissa Benda--TX coordinator, Mike--BRAT home visitor, and Anita--foster mom for helping me adopt this incredible bundle of joy, and Ben, who picked her up from the shelter, gave her love, and her name.
She brings me laughter every day in one way or another so thank you, B.R.A.T. Thank you. Now I have to go. Naybie Baby wants one more chorus of her song, then she's off to thump her chiweenie brother until he plays with her. They might even see if the old Maine Coon cat wants to join in. It's a Basenji's life here in Texas.
