I just had the WORST phone call!!!!!
So my Husband (recently my ex) met some guy at the gas station who had a female red & white B in his car. My Ex talked to this guy, gave him his phone #, told him to bring his B over, told him he knew EVERYTHING about Bs…...I think I remember him & I having this conversation at least 2 years ago.
The guy just called for my Ex. I talked to him and he said that my Ex told him he knew of people he could breed his female with.....The guy couldn't even really pronounce the word BASENJI. Anyway, I am soooo glad my Ex is gone and I got to talk to this guy.
This guy is sooooo uneducated. He said he wanted to breed his female because he promised his Grandkids and his kids all puppies. I asked him why he didn't just get puppies from RESPONSIBLE breeders and have his female spayed. He said he didn't want to have to PAY and wanted to give them puppies for free. YIKES!!!! Yea, because I'm pretty sure that it doesn't cost anything to raise a litter of pups!!!!!
I asked him if he wanted to get rid of his female and he said that she was the best dog he'd ever had. That, at least, made me happy. I think he loves her but is ignorant about breeding.
He asked if I knew anyone who he could breed his female with and I told him to call the Evergreen Basenji Club here in Washington. He said he did but, SURPRISE, no one wanted to breed with him. I told him that I knew that RESPONSIBLE breeders aren't going to just breed with anyone, especially someone who hasn't even had his female tested for Fanconi. He asked me if my bs were both fixed. I gladly told him YES!
He asked me if he could bring his female over for a play date. Yea, bring your female IN HEAT over to my house and we'll see how that goes!!!!! I'm sure my Grumpapotomous female won't tear your female to shreds in the backyard!!!!
I tried not to be too rude, but it couldn't be helped. Sorry, Mom, I know that's not how you raised me. I believe everything happens for a reason. I hope that me being true and a bit abrupt sends this guy a message that it's just not going to be possible to find a willing mate to breed his female with. I don't want to Ex bash, but he really could be a bit of an idiot sometimes. He gave this guy false hope and I just had to squash it.
So, if you are a breeder registered with the Evergreen Basenji Club and get a call from a guy from Kent, Washington, I'm sorry but I'm really not. You are the peeps this guy should be talking to. Not some guy he met at the gas station.....
