Not a good way to start the weekend. My 13 yr old girl Aurora went on a walkabout the neighborhood without us knowing. We have a doggie door to a fenced in back yard. Since it was Saturday me and hubby were sleeping in a little so the dogs went out on their own. When we got up there was a message on our answering machine saying that this person had returned our dog to our back yard he had found her walking around. My hubby goes out to the backyard to figure out how she escaped. We do check our fence regularly as we dog sit a lot, but since all the snow has FINALLY melted my old little girl had found a spot where the tree roots had popped a board loose. Luckly my 9yr old boy didn't follow her through. The moral of the story is make sure you have an ID tag on the collar of your basenji. This nice man was able to return her to us. The fence has been inspected again and all the boards firmly back in place. She's now a very tired girl sleeping on her bed in bay window basking in the sunshine.
