Basenji boys…..

  • Having Cairo as a new basenji member of our family has been such a blessing….The second puppy is sooooo much easier than the hair pulling first puppy experience.

    They hang together, play together, scream at each other when they are tired, and are quite a duo. I can't wait to see what new dynamic Cairo will bring to the pack on Sunday when he goes for the first time.

    I wonder if Caesar will be protective, playful or just ignore Cairo? I am sooooo excited and glad that Cairo is part of my every day!

    I am dorky! LOL

    No your not "dorky", just a big time B-lover. I am so happy for you after what you've been through. It's very cool, thanks for the updates! Enjoy!!!:D :)

    Getting a second "B" is a good move! I think they do best in pairs(or more:)
    They have a pal to go through life with….. mine get pissed at each other mutiple times each day, but when one can't find the other for whatever reason, they get seriously worried.....

    The comedy factor with more than one is pretty good too. Just when I think I've seen everything they do they amaze me with another gem.

    Our Willy and Jasper are 4 months apart and it wasn't hard at all raising those guys…....Penny and Raven helped. When we had our first(Max) as a pup, we where wondering just what kind of wacko dog we brought home.:eek:

    I can imagine the same wonder with Duke. Only thing that sets this statement apart is . . . We did not know what breed Duke was. I am still amazed and in admiration with this breed. In the very least with Daisy, we knew what we were getting into. Both my babies are B-mixes. They are all Basenji with some differential qualities. But my love for their personalities mesh perfectly with this forum. They are "amazing". I am sure I've said it numerous times.

    Max seemed so full of energy he didn't know what to do with. B-500's, the digging to China without end…....he needed something. Cleo answered that for us and I'm convinced two is easier than one. With what I know now if I was going to start over, it would be two pups, male, female.

  • I have to admit I'm jealous. I keep giving my husband the speech about our B needing a brother or sister and he just looks at me and calls me crazy. Yes our B is a handful…100 handfuls but giving him a buddy to hang out with and play with (the dog way, nipping, scratching) I think would make him so happy. I'll just live through all of u, until that is we get a new house.

  • When Caesar was out of the puppy crazies, and about 1-1/2 yrs old he started becoming destructive. I would play with him, but he needed more play that my exhusband and I could give. That is when we adopted Beta and it was heaven afterwards!! I miss her dearly.

    2 is far easier than 1.

    I remember meeting the Mac pac with their 3 basenjis when Caesar was crazy puppy and thought to myself, "how do they do it with 3?"

    Multiples are easier because they entertain each other.

    Cairo has been a blessing although I can honestly say now that i really miss having a girl basenji in the house. The boys are so rascally…...

    This morning before work....Caesar wanting me to blow him with my hair dryer, sitting calmly next to me. Cairo chewing on a deodorant bottle, belt, and curtain....running around.....thinking "what can i put in my mouth next!"

    But, with all that, I am whipped. I love that they have to be near me where ever I am.

    Sometimes I chase them with toothpaste!! LOL, it is soooooo funny. Mommy's way of payback.:D

    Never in a million years did I ever want to get another dog like Duke when he was younger. He was so wild and just a nut case. Then I discovered his Basenji-ism and learned all I could and trained him better. Even the sofa digging to China bothered me, but not for too long (my fault - not enough toys to keep him busy). Now there is Daisy - "Ooops! I did it again." Best thing I did for Duke. Daisy is so occupied with Duke, all the troubles like I had with Duke, don't exist. They play, play, play. I think they are both trying to be top dog. We'll see if either of them ever get to be it. No regrets and am glad we have another.

    Interesting thing about Daisy - She does not bark. She has a very-very high pitch (hard to describe) like hoot. Only heard it a few times. But she's not a barker. (Duke barks!) She's mostly quiet - when we first got her and put her in crate at night, she had some jungle sounding cries.
