Bedtime basenji

I am long overdue in posting pictures of my puppies, Willow and Kai. Things are going great - these are the sweetest dogs that I have ever met. We have taken them to the park and kids (and adults) have been all over them with no fuss from the dogs. (Why does everyone want to uncurl their tails?!?)

This is how the dogs go to sleep each night (this is my daughter, Lily, with Kai - her twin sister, Sophie, is cuddled up with Willow across the room):

We go in at about 11:00 pm to take the puppies for one last potty break and put into crates until morning. It is often difficult to untangle sleeping girls and dogs - everyone would much prefer to be left alone!

First Basenji's

Too adorable. I was just musing the other day that some Basenjis must be really good with kids, because overall, they do seem to love snuggling close. Better than stuffed animals!

Regarding the bit about everyone wanting to uncurl their tails - really? What IS it about Basenji tails that makes dog-park people want to un-curl them? Not that Cody minds too much, but really - leave those cinnamon buns alone! 🙂

So precious, both of them! Enjoy the puppy breath and little hugs …. they will all grow so fast ! 🙂

What a precious picture! I have a Lilly too!

There's a human magnet in the basenji's tail that causes a very strong attachment and most humans cannot resist. Having 3 therapy basenjis, I can say I'd never do therapy work with a basenji that can't deal with his tail being touched. Doesn't matter if the human is 8 or 90, basenji tails cannot be resisted.

Very sweet, nice that each girl has her own puppy!
