@sakuhn62 It doesn't matter - shown or just a pet (mine have all been pets even though in the past they were shown) - you have the health of the dog to consider, and carrying too much weight puts a strain on the organs.
As a two year old, this might not seem important, but believe me it is. Get her down to a nice svelte shape and keep her that way - she will be all the better for it.
She's a pretty little girl - what is her breeding so we can be sure she is included in the on-line pedigree database ? (see signature block)
@sakuhn62 She’s a sweetheart. Look at that face. I’m in love. I kinda agree with folks on her weight. I don’t know, but I wonder if I let my Jengo get too heavy and if that contributed to the health problems that... I don’t know, but it haunts me still. I find myself questioning so many decisions. I never knew about Basenjis and vegetables and fruit. I’m doing it differently now. I really appreciate the experience our breeders share here. Hope you and Lady have MANY happy years together! More pics please!
