I'm in too much shock right now to cry. My mom just called me at 6am to let me know that their Basenji, Simeon has passed away. He was 9 years old and suffered heart problems over the last two days. They had no idea he had anything wrong with his heart. The combination of his bad heart and the humid air was deadly to him.
What was really tragic, is that today is a German holiday and they couldn't find a Vet locally (everything closes down for holidays in Germany)…and wound up having to use the vet we did in the town we lived in...but by then it was too late.
Rest in peace Simeon, my ambassador to Basenjidom. You may have not been perfect for the job, having bitten me so many times..but I still know that you loved me in your own way.
