Dexter :)

  • I've only had him home with us for two days, but I'm already beyond head over heels for him. He is so affectionate, always giving kisses, and always wants to be as close to me as possible. He has been doing well with potty training, and has only had two accidents (poop- he always pees outside, though) since he got settled in. He also isn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated with having to be crated at night, he stops whining as soon as my fiance dangles his fingers into Dex's crate. He seems to have chosen his favorite play toy- a stuffingless weasel.
    He does the funniest stuff, so clumsy, and he lays down sometimes to eat and even to pee a couple times! He lays his upper body flat on the ground and pees with his hiney in the air. :p

  • I tried to upload a few more pictures in my original post, but it keeps saying that a security token was missing…

    Now it is letting me upload this one, but there are still two more that won't work... why is this?

    I just had this problem. Turns out the pictures were larger than 640x480. If yours are, you'll have to resize them to make them smaller.

  • Oh, he is absolutely precious! When my Lucy was that little, she used to love to burrow under the covers… and I was such a protective mom, I didn't let her! I was convinced she would suffocate.... I didn't realize it's just basenji behavior at its finest.

    Adorable! :)

  • Patty, I'm like that too! I check to make sure that his face isn't covered, and, if his nose is against the side of his bed or anything, I tilt his head away to give him more "breathing room" haha.
    I loooooooooooooove how snugly my baby is.
    He was born on December 29, so tomorrow he will be two months old!

  • What a sweet little dude! :) Puppies need so much sleep - big deep sleeps. Right now, Kipawa is crashed out in front of the fireplace.

  • Okay this officially does it… am leaving the forums next year from about Nov to April so I don't overload and die from wanting cute puppies.

    What an adorable pup!

  • Haha, thanks everyone! I got my first taste of bothersome Dexter this morning- so far, I had only experienced lovable, fun Dexter- when he decided around 5 AM that I needed to wake up so that he could jump all over my head and try to chew my hair off only a couple hours before I had to wake up for class. Of course, two minutes after my alarm went off to wake me up- I was still up- Dex decided to go back to bed. Hmph. lol

    Okay, but tell me you weren't smiling through it all… I dare you. :D It is so hard to be even a little mad at a basenji, especially when it is yours.

    Enjoy those sleepy times now, because, they are just a genetic trick to get you to lower your defenses and learn to love and adore those little critters, and once they have you hooked around their curly tails, then, and only then does that Basenjiness come out roaring. All the pups are so darling.

  • I LOVE the Basenji neck cuddle!!!!

  • Awww…how cute! I love the picture of him all snuggled under the covers with his toy!

    I agree with Fran about puppies sleeping deeply...last night Flame was asleep on Earl's lap. When he (Earl) had to get up, he handed Flame over to me and I swear the little guy didn't even wake up!

  • Adorable! It's great seeing all the new puppies working so hard at wriggling their way into our hearts:)

  • Haha, Yeah. It is too hard to be mad at the little guy. I'm home for a break in between my classes, and I'm having a hard time having to leave him in the crate and go back :(

    And, Deschroedter, I've read on here a few times about how the lovable, sleepy puppy phase is just a trap to make you fall in love before they show you the real basenji in them! That's so funny.

    I also love the neck cuddle and sleeping with his toy pic. <3

    And, LindaH, I know exactly what you mean! When he falls asleep on my lap and I need to move, I just scoop my hands flat under him and carry him to his crate- not a stir! :D
