Try feeding them in their crates, we leave our crates open at meal time and while Duane is preparing they all go into their crates and stick their heads out and "talk" to him encouraging him to fix faster! Once food is in, doors are closed and locked so that everyone has a chance to eat in peace, only open when everyone is finished. so glad you resuced the boy.
I am trying to adopt from BRAT but I haven't had any luck. The first one I tried on ended up not caring to much for cats. My home was inspected and approved. My application is in. They have one right now named Saphire that I have sent off a few request but no reply. Any tips or pointers that you can give me would be appreciated. thanks

If you feel that you need stop posting for a while because of a conflict with other members, please step back and email us directly before posting publicly about the issue. Best way to to handle arguments on the public forum is to just let go and move on.
The purpose of this board is to provide a place for Basenji owners to make connections, exchange information and assist and encourage one another. It is above all a friendly environment for online discussion.
Don't be rude to others, or make an argument personal
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all
Know the difference between a difference of opinion and a personal attack
Don't try to "win" an argument by repeating yourself over and over
Don't tell others what to post
Don't bash other members
Keep it clean, don't use profanity
Why can't I tell this user what an idiot he/she is; every single thing he/she posts is just so wrong?
If you can't find a respectful way to express your difference of opinion, then you're better off saying nothing at all. Don't talk down to other posters, lecture them or be rude and dismissive. Disagreement is fine, but attacking another poster personally will get you in trouble and result in a ban from the forum.
But he started the fight by attacking me! Can't I defend myself?
This is a forum for the discussion of Basenjis, not a dueling society. If you feel attacked, please report it to the admin and then ignore the poster, respond to another thread. Remember, however much you were provoked, if you attack a poster personally then you are just as guilty of breaking the rules.
Why can't I tell a poster that he's breaking the rules?
This board has a moderator. Telling other people what to do is rude, derails the conversation even further and often ignites flame wars. Please just report the user to the admin and move on.
@helle-devi I notified BRAT shortly after "Heather" started the rant. I was concerned about several points (administering/adjusting med dosage without Vet approval/advice, ignoring Vet advice, and on and on). They called an emergency board meeting and took prompt action. Unfortunately, legal processes take time. All the while, Heather continued her rant. And more astonishing details were revealed.
By the time Heather sent her first (wall of text itself) post, BRAT had already sent Heather an email explaining that they were reclaiming "Declan". Indicating that BRAT was already aware that things had gotten out of hand. I think Heather was a good "foster Mom" when she first started doing it. But something ... somewhere along the line ... started unraveling for her.
I don't wish her any ill will. I do hope that she finds her way back. But I still think removing Declan from her home was "for the best". sigh
(note: I do not know if Declan is still with her or not, Heather might have actually signed that agreement, but I doubt it.)
You got your collars from Around the Hounds in Canada didn't you? I recognize the first blue one and the one with the bees. That is where my b kids get their collars from as well…the owner Char is super nice and helpful. Tough to pick which ones to get as there are so many nice ones.
Right ! Char is indeed a wonderful person ! These collars are very well manufactured, very nice and very strong. And the price is reasonable as they are all handmade …:)
@lvoss So I am rereading this thread and the light went on. So simply I don't even know why I kept missing it.
If you are breeding for traits, you do loose genes. or at least those being expressed. Sometimes I need to stop thinking and let things be actually understood.
Check out this video of 9 week old Jaroufa's Glamazon at Rift Valley is quite the agility queen. She went to her new home today thanks to my good friend/ driver and combat tracking mentor, Frank Merritt. We will miss the dark brindle girl but she is going to one of the top racing homes in the country and that is what this litter was all about.
