Basenji skirts

I have noticed in the last few weeks that Cody has developed rather long skirts on his back legs. He never had them before (he is 2 1/2 years old) and it now looks like he has little fins, about 1/2 inch long, sticking out of his thighs. Does anyone else have a Basenji with skirts? Could it just be a Spring shedding thing?

Chipley grew skirts this winter, but he has mostly shed them now. Hopefully seasonal

Yup Becca has them right now. They will eventually fall out as she goes through her summer shed. Tucker didn't get any this winter though. Becca looks very funny because they are way lighter red than the rest of her right now.

Exactly! They ARE lighter. And they just look so silly. Glad to know there is hope that they will disappear. Thanks!!!

LOL we call them 'Furry Knickers' 😃

Her face is even shedding out. If I can get a good picture this weekend I will post it. You can visibly see the line where the winter hair is falling out and her summer coat. I just have to give her a good few brushes and she will be good.

Does she look like a hedgehog?
Giza always looked like a hedgehog in the spring.

Yeah that is a good comparison. Her face kind of has a mottled look. Too funny.

The weather has been so crazy that my boy Arnie is molting! He is almost over it. He has it when the temperature range is wide. The last time I remember him doing it is in the Fall about 5 years ago when we lure coursing down south and living up north.

Kipawa's skirt - it isn't big, but I actually love running my fingers over it. 🙂
