Your Pogi is a beautiful baby and you were both lucky to have each other. So sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest condolences - please think of all the happy times you had with Pogi.


I suspect many of us learned the hard way. That's why I have a basenji chew-resistant leash. I had several cut through before I put in the chain.

@lalmalbis I"m sorry to hear that you lost your Pogi and hope that your Mother is doing better than you expected.

@debradownsouth How did you come up with this leash alteration?

@debradownsouth How did you come up with this leash alteration?

From a basenji breeder who said to put at least a 6 inch chain between the collar and leash so when they snake their little heads around they couldn't reach the leash part. So I went to Home Depot and had them cut me about 6 chains, got the connectors and attached to their leashes. I wish I remembered who suggested it but I've seen others with similar contraptions for our lovely "razor blades hidden in mouth" breed. I have had one cut my bra straps front and back almost precisely 3 inches up as if she measures. Yeah, I learned to put my stuff away.

LOL about the bra straps! I know what you mean though; Olly just neatly chewed through the front strap on her brand new raincoat..... it was the first day she wore it. Grrrrr! That leash fix is a great idea. Going to be dropping by my local home depot this afternoon!! Yay, you!

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
