For the last couple of days, Kipawa has been sneezing. But it was much worse yesterday, so I got him to the vet pronto. Around 8 p.m. I got a call back.
Vet: "We cleaned out so much sand out of his ears".
Me: "Yeah. One of the dog parks we go to has lots of sand".
Vet: "When was the last time you were there"?
Me: "Almost 2 weeks ago, and I clean his ears when we get back".
Vet: "Those ears of his are like a catcher's mitt"!
Me: "They are that"!
Vet: "We also got out something really interesting. Both Dr. Thrasher (2nd vet) and I (our regular vet) saw something white. We both looked at each other and said "it couldn't be"!
Me: "What was it"?
Vet: "A seashell".
So, the shell was taken out.
I guess at some point in his young life Kipawa heard the ditty "… sells sea shells by the seashore", and he wanted to bring in a little extra cash to pay for his kibble.
I'm curious now - what is the oddest thing pulled out of your basenjis? Any orifice.
