This is Raisin.
He’s a basenji (a hound) from Boston, Massachusetts.
I think it is the cutest Holiday pet I’ve seen this year, indeed.
"Raisin was curious as to why I was bringing the outside in," wrote owner Melody Henkel. "But she got into the spirit."
Raisin’s registered name is Bet on Striking Gold at Eldorado. She is 4 points away from her AKC Championship.”
"Raisin is a doll, very strong-willed and an independent thinker, like most hounds," Melody continues, when she and her pet were chosen as Winner of the Santa Pets Contest 2009 at marthastuwart.com.
"She keeps me on my toes” said Melody.
Raisin seems like a lovely companion to me, indeed, a happy holiday pet.
