Thanks all for the kind words. This was the first time I've worked with Basenjis; luckily for me these two are show dogs and as such are pretty well-trained and easy to work with. I think they're very unique looking, and I love the intent gaze they have in a lot of their photos -- very striking.

These two picture are very strong and well done. You did a good job.
I think the first one could be improved further with cropping, however. The blurred bush, on viewer's left should be cropped away. Even parts of the right side could be trimmed. I encourage you to try this and see how YOU like the result.

If anyone's interested, here are a couple more of these two:
