I would
Love to hear about the history of
Basenjis.

@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.

oh, please post a photo of this! I'd love to see it and I'm sure you took one or two along the journey. 🙂

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.
