New 5th Edition of the stuff Basenjis from TotalBasenji
This post is deleted!

This appears to be a seller of stuffed Basenji, 9x9 inches (about 250 x 250 mm). I am happy to let it stay, but I dont like sellers of "stuff" to be present on this forum. Am I alone in this?

@redial I was kind of conflicted on this. The plush animals were Basenji's (and so cute), but in the end, it was just an advertisement. True, "Freddo" was a member for 2 years(?), but they didn't have any other posts (so... they were not a contributing member). The last line indicated that there was some sort of charitable Basenji Rescue that would benefit from the sales, but I couldn't find anything like that on the website they linked to.

Then I started thinking about all the other "Basenji" paraphernalia: mugs, jewelry, dog apparel, etc. and it occurred to me that we would be opening a can of worms. If we let the Basenji stuffed animals advertise, wouldn't we also have to let the Basenji mug dealers advertise? So, I referred to the rules:

It wasn't a fun decision, but I felt like it was the only real choice.

No

Sorry.....I went against the rules....did not realize it was against the rules to advertise something that I have been doing for years and have contributed to BRAT for years...if in doubt please ask them....

As I said, if I let you do it, I have to let others do it. I'm sorry... the rule is clear. I think the stuffed animals are cute though.

@donzii I have several that I bought years ago on eBay. I am sure your products are great but this forum doesn’t allow advertising. You might be able to get BRAT to add them to their goods, I know they have Cafe Press stuff which they get a contribution from the sale of.

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