No, he was just dozing
Here are 2 older pics (2010) when he lived with his previous family. I was always under the impression B's did not like water, and he still seems to not. Wonder what got into him that day…the other usually makes people chuckle because we are not used to dogs having cold weather gear like that around here
2nd pic-did you wake him? He looks a little sleepy! LOL
C'mon, that's the usual trick. Basenjis just want us to feel bad for them so we can further cater to their needs. My B does this all the time.
He is indeed a handsome B. Funny how some of them tolerate water and others do not.
