PYGMIES & BUSHMEN OF THE KALAHARI The chapter on hunting tells us :"To assist the Bushmen in the capture of wild animals dogs are employed, and these are the only animals they possess. These are lean, hungry-looking mongrels, half starved and savage tempered. They accompany their masters when hunting, and it is astonishing with what courage they will tackle a leopard or a hyena, the courage no doubt born of hunger. At the same time they know their masters will back them up. They are quite silent on the soper, and never betray the presence of the hunters by barking, though they will snarl and sometimes bark if one approaches a Bushman encampment. It has been asserted that they cannot bark, but I think this is a mistaken opinion, as those that I have met could bark, though they were not so noisy as European dogs."

REIGNING CATS AND DOGS History Redrawn. Written and Illustrated by Michael Hingley, published by Howell Book House, NY 1997 ISBN 0-87605-697-4. A basenji appears as Kim Basenji, dressed in a low-cut spaghetti-strapped pink gown and fishnet stockings. A Georgia-whelped dog, Basenji studied dancing and singing though she somewhat surprisingly intended to make her professional bowwow as a comedy act. She found work with the risqué magazine Playdog. No matter how many roles she plays, she will probably best be remembered, mainly by male dogs, for her seductive role in 9 1/2 Walks." Kim is among a cast of characters that include Joe Cocker Spaniel, Mohammed Alley Cat, The Beagles, Napoleon Bone-Aparte, Spaniel Boone....

In the background are three cars with registration letters F and G which means that the picture was taken sometime after 1988.
