    These guys certainly have nicer spots to lay than that and they do the same.:rolleyes: If it isn't mud, it's dusty dirt.:rolleyes: They'd plop down somewhere and a little dust cloud would come up…...:eek: :D

  • We had to give baths this week too but it was the goose poop that was so nauseatingly inviting that both "ruffians" had to roll in it and were so proud. They smelled so disgusting:eek:

  • :D Penny and Raven both look as proud as peacocks of themselves! :rolleyes: Storm is SO jealous that they managed to get a rabbit! He was hot on the trail of one tonight - thought for sure it was a goner, but it ducked into a burrow and left Storm whining and digging in the dirt trying to paw it out :) Of course, the rabbit didn't comply :rolleyes: , but you try telling a basenji to give up! :D Finally I did lure him away with a tasty homemade beef jerky treat. :rolleyes: I guess his motto is "a treat in the hand (and belly!) is worth 2 rabbits in the bush!" ;)

    Max actually opened the sliding glass door…..oh around 1am or so and went out. My Son said he thought he was out there an awfully long time and went out to see what he was up to. Max was digging under a little deck we have our grille on and pulled out a rabbit......he didn't eat it and gave it right to Lee, dead of course:( . Penny and Cleo would've eaten it for sure.....good luck getting it off of them.:rolleyes:

  • Aw…dirty little dogs :)

    I spent part of my Sunday mulching the "racetrack" the dogs have made in the back corner of the yard. I was tired of having mudders trying to come in and lounge on the furniture (I do have some house pride!) I actually had to hose them off one day, because they were so muddy I couldn't get them into the house without getting mudded myself, and we were on our way out of the house. Talk about unhappy Basenjis! I think my neighbors were concerned that I was beating the dogs judging by the screams.

    So anyhow, I mulched the entire path, over the hill, around the woodpile, behind the pines, along the fence......so far...clean feet!

    That's kind of how I do it too. They run and cause little trails, holes where they go around something…....very much like a race track. Mulch and stone are my basic materials!

    What we do for these critters.:rolleyes:

  • I even noticed that Nala has "carved" out her own little trail of mud - she races the cars as they drive up the road. That's where she's getting muddy (there is still some run-off from melting snow). Maybe little tiny paver stones…hee hee
