• Andrea,
    Your basenji is so adorable! I just noticed the photo a minute ago. Very cute!

    @Quercus:

    some of mine make a sound kind of like "hrumphf" if they want something…some will moan, and whine. Our male just gives us the mind meld stare....


  • I would say definitely spoiled. She has learned that when she wants something, being annoyying will get her attention-good or bad.


  • Arlene,
    When Amy tucks her nose in her blankey (when she lets us tuck her in), or covers her nose with her hand, is it like a child sucking their thumb or a comfort thing? Sorry for all of these questions. I know I have too many.


  • I would say no it isn't a comfort thing necessarily. Don't forget B's are primitive and still have a lot of 'wild dog' mannerisms. These are den creatures that like to be 'buried' on their terms. My Shadow and Sugar love to be 'buried' - when they want to be. They like their eyes covered for some reason-haven't figured that one out yet. (maybe to darken the room) Questions are fine.


  • This would explain why my B the other day covered his face with his paw when he was sleeping during the day. He looked so cute..

    Yeap we always say "why can't he always be like this" while he is sleeping or relaxed. Always quietest before the storm.


  • ha ha ha lol ditto on the sleeping…

    My little girl TOPAZ likes to bury herself in a blanket when she's on the couch with me or she sticks her noise in my arm or under my leg. She likes to prop herself up on my husbands arm or leg. Sometimes she'll lift her head up from inside the blanket to see what the raucus is about and lays her chin on your arm & then decides ahhh I'll just keep sleeping LOL 😃 It's pretty hysterical 😃 😃


  • Hollie loves to bury herself under the covers on the bed. She almost always has her nose covered, either with a blanket or her paws. I think it's because her nose is always COLD (very cold) and she is trying to keep it warm!

    OMG! The "mind meld stare"…that's a perfect way to describe it! Mine does the "hrumphf" thing too. Sometimes it sounds like a sneeze, because if you're near it, you get snotted.
