xylitol, a sugar substitute, is deadly to dogs
Thank you for the reminder! I don't do "sugar free" products (which would be obvious if you met me), but I often forget to mention this. Very important warning. Thank you!
I am a mama to two basenjis! My partner and I are starting a podcast about the beautiful creatures that we can’t get enough of! We plan to discuss the history behind the breed, interview various experts, answer questions and discuss the breed we all love so dearly! We also want to share these things as a way to educate potential basenji owners and new basenji owners. Basically anything about the basenji!
I was hoping all you wonderful people could comment with anything that you would like to hear in the podcast or things you find important to include. We also plan to have a Q+A segment as well as tips from owners potentially involved in at least some of the podcast episodes. I will update with how to find the podcast for anyone interested in being involved in any way including listening in
I included (or attempted to) a couple pics of my bbs! Cleopatra and Giza
You have a Basenji named Giza?! My very first Basenji I named Giza, and I've never heard of another one with that name because I thought it was so perfectly Basenji. I am a bit surprised that there weren't more with that name.
Love to hear about the history of
@giza1 yes! Ours is a 3 1/2 year old tri color and he’s the sweetest! He’s a little old man at heart so we call him Giza the geezer I’m surprised it isn’t more common too!
Ha. When our Giza did something exasperating, we would always say, "Giz Louise"! Our Giza rode across Canada on a motorcycle when she was 9 months old. She lived to be 18.

How did you manage that? What kind of carrier did you have her in? And how did you teach Giza not to jump off?
I had her in an over-the-shoulder type of bag that zipped closed along the top, and had a hole in one end for a dog to stick its head out; she rode between my husband and myself. I'd trained her to lay in the bag, and we'd stop every couple hours so she could stretch her legs. She wore a bandana and had goggles on, she was a great little biker!
Interesting fact; the first time that we rode across the county I had mothers pull their children away from me, we were bad bikers after all. The second time we rode across - same people, same leathers, same bike - we had a dog with us and people couldn't wait to talk to us! What a difference a little dog made.
Y'know, I really don't think I have any pictures of just her in the bag, I'd have to look. Those were in the days before cell phones. I have pictures of her on the bike.
@giza1 Oh, please post pictures if you have. Whatta bada$$ Basenji rider!!!! :smiling_face_with_open_mouth_closed_eyes:
Nice post, glad to be here.
