Happy Birthday Perry!

  • Perry's tenth birthday was today. It's hard to believe he has been with me almost seven years now.

    Perry got a new Green Frog for his birthday.

    Seems the old one is still the best! He has had this toy since he came to me. It is still in perfect shape!

    He's still playful and full of life at ten years old. I hope he will be with me for a long time to come!

  • Aww I love those pictures. He looks like a very young ten, I can't tell in the pics that he's middle aged..I love that he has a frog that you've managed to keep intact for so many years…I hope he has a great birthday and I'm sure many to come...time goes so quick; before I know it I will have a ten year old!!

    Happy Tenth B-Day, Pretty Perry! Here's wishing you ten more.

    He really does look like a young boy. And he has the sweetest face.

    He does look very young…(men, eh?) Butu too is very good with his stuffed toys (not up to Perry's standard, but months and months...). He also knows their names...

    Perry knows the names of his toys, and will retrieve them for me by name…...at least when his dinner is soaking and he has the proper motivation! ;)

  • Very cute pics! It seems they all keep their very first toy or the one they came with intact. Becca has a Duckie that she never ripped apart. I don't think tucker came with a toy….maybe that is why he destroys everything! Happy belated birthdate Perry.

    I live just off a road with loads of Charity shops on. People who get there and find them closed are always leaving bags full of stuff outside. I have always despised the low-lifes I sometimes see going through said bags…stealing from Charity shops! Tonight, I am sorry to say, I have joined their ranks

    Well, actually, it was the dog....Butu leapt, and before I could do anything, he was proudly bearing his prize home...it is a stuffed (toy, not taxidermy) otter on a wooden board. He obviously loved it, so he can keep it and I will take it down the Charity Shop tomorrow and pay for it...

  • Good for Butu! Perry thinks any sort of stuffed toy must be for him. When I bought a couple for my niece's kids, he was sure they must be his. I felt sorry for him…...his eyes got so big when he saw them......but I couldn't give them to him. Had to buy a replacement as a peace offering!

    Perry is the only Basenji I have owned who isn't at all destructive. We have become careless. He does not go into waste baskets for tissues, and we can leave pens lying around with impunity. I credit his breeder, as she had him for his first three years and definitely taught him manners!

    I was once taking Butu around the ring at a Fun Dog Show when I became aware of the laughter…he had stolen the teddy off a Small Spectator and was walking around with it in his mouth...embarrassing...

    Happy Birthday Perry and many more wished, Kaiser is a stuffed toy demolisher. I have replaced his favourite duck which he can play with until he starts to pluck and chew it so let's hope he has it many more years as I just love watching him play and carry toys around, so very cute. Perry is very special keeping his toy that long.

    Jolanda and Kaiser

    Awesome… Perry still looks bad-ass. My B is about to turn 3. How old do you think Perry thinks he is...
    Cheers

    I am sure he thinks he is just a young fellow, in the same way he thinks he could beat up that Saint Bernard he sees out for a walk! ;)
