Oooooh - giving him such wrong ideas!
This speed demon will leave you and rug burns so far behind, in his rear view
Can’t help it. I really like this dog. Enjoy spoiling him. Although, he gained two pounds since we brought him home, so his meals are smaller now. 🧁

PLEASE cut him back, and get his weight back to where it was when you first got him. Stella will have had him at the correct weight. Keep him there. For his own good. Stop indulging yourself by giving him too many extra calories he obviously doesn't need.
His time with you will be so much shorter if you let his organs get clogged with too much weight. A svelte, trim Basenji will be so much healthier, and fitter.
You could be killing him with kindness.
Measure his (decreased) daily food ration out and ONLY give him bits of that kibble as 'treats' - that way you are not piling on the weight. His daily intake will be rationed. And put him on a reducing diet to get the weight off - fast.
Green vegetables instead of too much kibble. Beans, brassicas, and meat, limited quantities.
News that he is back to his desired weight soon, please !!
Completely agree, Sally. I’ve been checking his weight intermittently since bringing him home. I also check in with Stella a few times each week, so she knows what’s happening. I let her know about the two pounds about a week before I posted here. She and I discussed it and came up with a plan. He’ll be back to 24 soon.
