We had a great run!

We never can keep them long enough. Our treasured pets bless our lives and give us more love than we ever knew. So sorry for your loss. 🐾❤

Nine years is definitely too soon. So sorry for your loss. It is never, ever easy, no matter how long. But the memories will stay with you when the tears have fled.

My heart goes out to Zeus and Dad. My hope is that you’ll find comfort with one another. Run free, Milosh. Run free little friend. 🌹

@funnybunny What a crushing loss this holiday season. My thoughts are with you.

So so sorry on the loss. May the new year bring a new pup to your home.

I am so sorry for your loss - and share your pain. I had (2) Basenjis - they were brothers - born January 21st, 2014 - “Dexter” and “Jazz”.
Dexter was my constant companion, my shadow my best friend - he passed on December 4th, 2020 - there isn’t a moment since that I haven’t thought about him and still brings me to tears when I think of his passing.
Jazz is starting to cope, his appetite has returned and we are helping each other through our grief. He too is approaching his 17th year and I shudder to think how I cope when his time comes. I have had dogs throughout my entire life, but there has been no better companions than my Basenjis - cherish the time you have with your Basenji - time passes so quickly.

Wishing you and Jazz comfort and peace during this difficult time. So sorry for your loss. 🐾❤

How do you upvote something like this. I have thought about losing my Zaki and can't stand the thought of it. My heart goes out to you.

I am so sorry , loosing a pet is like loosing your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful basenji. As someone wrote below, it never gets easier. I truly believe that it is our memories that keep them alive in our hearts forever.

9 years is far to short a time to spend with one of these enchanting creatures - I am so sorry.

I am so sorry to hear, our Moe passed away on the 21st as well...they must be new playmates now.

So sorry to hear of your loss. It's always hard to say goodbye - especially to a basenji. They are such wonderful dogs. May you have comfort in the great memories of Milosh.

I am so sorry you lost your sweet basenji. I am sending virtual hugs.

So sorry for you loss.... hugs...

I appreciate all the condolences, its been a tough week loosing our little buddy. I got a call from the internal medicine specialist and there was really nothing new to share, she stated the samples confirmed it was Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which was the treatment we had started him on. Hope this helps someone in the future catch it a little earlier. Wish ya'll a happy New Year.

@ttobler Thank you very much for letting us know. Have a better 2021.
