Foods basenjis love

Can we get a list of favorite foods for basenjis that is healthy and can be added to their regular food?

Mine love:

Boiled chicken

boiled eggs

pumpkin pie filling

watermellon

Mine absolutely die for

lettuce

bananas

Sweet potato's, skins and all

But as I understand it, the skin is not the best thing for dogs?…. but yes, mine love Sweet Potatos too, of course all meats, 90% of all veggies.. and most fruits... and if you ever have a sick dog that needs to eat and doesn't want to... canned hash will do it every time....

What is the consequence of letting them eat the skins. I never heard that.

Canned hash huh?:eek:

are talking about raw veggies or cooked?

They'll generally eat anything we consider gross-unedible-etc.

We cook the sweet potato, mash everything up and add it to the kibble….on occasion.......it's not a regular part of their diet......but they really do love them.

Mine love:
tan bark (chew up)
dirt
cat poop
dead dried up birds
old food found around picnic areas

Not necessarily in that order. Bon appetite!

That's pretty funny, but just think of what the Basenji's in their native enviorment eat.:eek: :eek: :eek:

You know, I don't remember, will have to look were I saw that.. I do skin them first and then mash them up….

Yup... canned hash.... 🙂

@Mantis:

Both… steamed and raw...

Please pardon my ignorance…but what the heck is "hash"???

corned beef and hash comes in a can….it is in the spamalicious and vienna sausage family and is a camping breakfast favorite as well as some peoples' breakfast for those who enjoy salt in the morning.

a very salty meat, some variety of pork with bits of potatoe in it...heat it up and eat with eggs....

stinky salty maybe meat product that can taste really good at certain moments.....l

Oh, by the way, I would not touch it with a ten foot pole… gggg But the smell makes my B's go totally nuts!

I'm in hysterics, because we have always said there should be a dog food that is "cat poop" flavored.

By the way, our little Juma will eat almost anything in front of her. However, boiled hamburger meat is fun to add a bit to her food.

I'm sorry for anyone who likes canned hash-but, isn't that what it is? Canned "cat poop" flavoured sorta "meat"?

AAAAAHHHHH Ok I do know SPAM..grew up on the stuff. Don't ask me why?? I can't even look at it now 😃 😃

Here's my take on why dogs eat cat poop. The cat gets chased and terrorized by the dog. So the cat gets back at the dog by the poop having a magic spell on it that makes the dog hallucinate that it's a juicy steak hot off the grill. So the cat sits up on the fence having the last laugh watching the dog eat.
