Sorry I have been out of touch for so long, the holidays were frenetic and then right after New Year I caught a cold that drained what little resources I had left. I'm still in the recovery process but feeling much better.
Basil is well and wonderful. Santa brought him a new comfy bed which he really likes. At this moment he is snoozing on it while Jillie lies next to him gnawing on his beef bone; he is very good about sharing!
We had to make a trip up to Colorado before Christmas to bring my mother-in-law down to Carlsbad. We borrowed a Ford Excursion for the trip and Basil had the whole rear section of the vehicle to lounge in, complete with mattress and blanket. He behaved very well and enjoyed himself a great deal, as you can see by the two photos from Utah! He especially enjoyed playing in whatever snow we came across, and certainly wasn't bothered by the extreme cold we encountered at times.
You can just barely make him out in the "Basil the Cowdog" picture, but he is the white dot beside the horse and rider, faithfully keeping position behind the herd. I have never before heard of a Borzoi cowdog, but at the rate he is going, he will make a good one!
Hope your holidays were pleasant and that you and all your critters are doing well.
Here's another picture of Basil. He and Jill were just about to hike out over
White Sands National Monument.
