It's a little early, but I thought folks might enjoy this Basenji sighting! (I have no affiliation with this company - I saw this posted on the Brat-Chat newsfeed)
@Rivermoon - Ha ha! I hadn't thought of that scenario - but of course it might happen! Too funny!
And Lisa - we have an October fundraiser for the local Humane Society here that includes a costume contest. I am always trying to come up with ideas, but Tempest in a Teapot might be the best I have heard of - ever! I hope you are the hit of the parade!!
OMG - those are so cute! The grim reaper - perfect for Shaye; the pumpkin - perfect for Gemma - likelihood of them letting me put them on? Nil. Sigh. Saw one at the Renaissance Festibal this year of a knight in full armor with a shiny "horse" blanket, carrying a sword - adorable. Not on a basenji though, it was a lab.
I find with basenjis the simpler the costume the more likely they are to tollerate it, things on their heads generally do not work well. I made this little Chippendale outfit for the boys a couple years ago and they did not mind wearing it at all. Last yr I made the mistake of trying to use a wig on the whippet, that did not work out
Here's what I've ordered for Thabo. The fact they seem to have persuaded a basenji to wear it long enough to photograph was a plus in my book. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HE189G/ref=oh_emp_details_o02__i01
