We met Lucien for the first time today and we are pretty damn enamored with this little guy. This little guy is 1/4 African Basenji which is a very good thing for the Basenji lineage. American Basenjis are largely descended from a very small number of dogs brought from the Congo. Lucien has some fresh Congo Blood in him, if you will, and that makes him a special Basenji indeed! (Please do not think that my Romeo nor Zena is less!) It is just very good for the breed to have some fresh genes added to the mix.
We’ve been dying to meet this little guy for some time now. He was born/raised very near Portland (same wonderful family that brought Romeo and Zena into our lives). Since we live in NM, my being up in PacNW for my final internship finally gave us the chance to meet this little sweetheart and OMG I am in love.
I have to share the pictures, then crash.. Tomorrow is my Monday. Starting week 5/7. This is going really fast!!! I will be back in The Land of Enchantment before I know it!!!
