4-18-2012 Some early pictures

Well, it has been one week ago yesterday when Dannii crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  I haven't shed a whole lot of tears, but there have been some. I guess its because I know that he is in a much better place and in no pain.   I truly do miss my boy.  However, I do not think Jenna and Zak miss Dannii at all!.

I came across some pictures of old, and thought I would post a few of what Dannii looked like in his younger days, plus a few of MzLilli (my very first basenji), and some "friends".  Hope you enjoy the photos.


  This picture here is of Lilli, my very first basenji, ever, and Peeve the cat.  Peeve liked Lilli and Lilli liked Peeve.  I wonder if it was because they were both black and white?

This was taken in the backyard.  There is a blue potato bush right behind me, and you should see it now!  Dannii and Lilli don't look too happy for some reason.

For some strange reason, this was how Lilli would sit in the chair!  She has her eyes closed, but I don't think she was asleep.

This is how I remember my Dannii!  He was so very handsome.  This was taken at Benicia dog park, before we started going to Point Isbel.

Dannii and his friend, Wyatt.  We called them the "bad boys of the dog park"!  For some strange reason, they would find and pick one certain dog, and would "tag team" that poor dog!  Everyone thought it was so cute and funny.  They never, ever hurt another dog, but whatever dog got tagged by Dannii and Wyatt just looked so confused afterwards.  Remember the song from the show "Cops"?  Bad boys, bad boys whatcha going to do bad boys?   Well, instead of using the words "bad boys" we used the words "bad dogs" instead.  We had lots of fun back in the day.

At first, I had thought this black and white basenji was Lilli, but upon closer inspection, I come to realize it was one of the "foster dogs" that I was fostering for BRAT.  I can not remember this dog's name, but I do remember, he got a forever home in Alaska!  Dannii got along with this dog, as did Lilli.  I also remember that this b/w would yodle.  The other dog in this photo is Wyatt.

  10. I've just found your blog and I must say Dannii was a very handsome Basenji. From your photos and comments it looks like the short life he had was full of love, fun and mischief! So sorry to hear he crossed the bridge, it's lovely that he's stayed with you in spirit.
