Best Name Of The Year (So Far)


Sounds like the name of an astronaut from one of those 1950s serials, right? (Kids, ask your parents.) And look at those ears! AM, FM, BBC, they can pick up everything. “I would like to submit some photos of my Basenji puppy. His name is Captain Xavier,” says Tina R.

And we can tell you that you will be seeing X again this Friday at 5pm PT for TGIF! Without a doubt.

    The face…those wrinkles! Captain Xavier looks like a scholar in deep contemplation over which NETFLIX show to binge watch.

  3. You gotta love love love a Basenji 🙂 They are so cute with their wrinkled foreheads and usual look of “Whatcha doing, can I see, do you need help?” I used to have two of them and love the breed! Congrats on your new baby with the awesome name! 🙂

  4. I don’t know about 1950 serials .. but i do remember a character by that name in the On-line game “Pirates of the Caribbean”.

    All he needs is an eye patch and he’s all set.

  5. I love the concerned face and attentive ears…what a cutie!

  6. I have always thought Basenji’s are Adorable in the extreme 🙂
