Besenji's & Macro Monday

Click on photograph to enlarge

I do not have a dog.

Last month while on the road trip with two girlfriends, I met MOUDER.
Mouder short for Kamouder.
"Egyptian God"
His sister's name was Cleo for Cleopatra.
She passed away not long ago,  Mouder still mourns for her.
He is a well cared for loving dog.

BASENJI'S

They are known as the barkless dog from central Africa.
I found this to be true, a gentle dog, not hyper, well mannered (thanks to his owners).

Years ago I had a Whippet which is more of a cat like dog in my opinion.
I believe I am more of a cat person than dog.
However I would consider this breed of dog if you prefer not to hear barking.

They are such a "happy" breed...perhaps it is because they don't talk!...:)JP

Wonderful macro shot, Janie!

Thank you everyone. The lighting was added by me, because the face was dark in the shadows. I was playing around with it some.
