• :rolleyes: Does your B stare at you? Jojo will sit and just stare…I ask her what she wants or why is she staring at me but she just keeps on looking...doesn't move, just stares...😕


  • Jazzy does this. Keoki does not, at least not yet.

    Jazz is also known to sit and stare at the wall. LOL doesn't make her look too bright!


  • LOL how cute, staring at the wall…Jojo hasn't done that yet...sometimes she stares at the tv but I just think she is watching...who knows...she does stare at the door but I think she is telling me she needs to go out, she will sit or stand and has her face almost touching the door just staring...


  • Yes! That is what Jazz does w/the walls. She puts her face almost right up against it and just stares. It's so weird. And like I said, doesn't exactly scream "intelligent" to onlookers. LOL


  • Huh? Weird. Sometimes Jack stares too,but mainly at my husband!! I think he is in awe of him maybe he idolizes Geoffrey, lol. I guess they just get REALLY focused!!


  • Goober stares at me all the time. I think it may have some kind of submissive thing goining on. Like he's giving all of his attention to you.


  • Lenny stares at the ceiling all the time….its funny.


  • I would love to know what is going through Jojo's mind when she is staring at me. I will be watching tv and I notice she is staring and I turn my attention back to the tv and several minutes later I look back at her and she is still staring. I ask what's the matter, what does she want, or why are you looking at me? Jojo just keeps on staring…LOL


  • It can be almost unnerving, the way the stare is so intent, so focused like they are trying to communicate something…or just trying to freak us out to show that, in their way, they can exert this strange power over us. LOL


  • Last night when my husband and I where geting ready for bed Jojo was in her bed which is in front of the chest of drawers and she has her head resting on the side of her bed and she was just staring at the drawer in front of her…later when I was reaching to turn out the light on my night stand I looked down and she was still staring at the drawer. I talked to her but she did not look at me, she kept staring at the stupid drawer. I got up and went over to her and then she decided to look at me as if to say "What are you bothering me for?"...

    We call it 'the basenji mind meld'….and it DOES usually occur when we are eating something tasty. But sometimes it means 'my water bowl is empty'...and very rarely 'can you let me out'...because that usually involves a more frenetic whirling around like an idiot!

    Not all of our dogs do it. Querk does it the most, and absolutely the most clearly.....his daughter Luna also has a very intent and piercing stare. The others...not so much....


  • Yeap our Champ just sits and stares at us. I do wonder what is going on in that beautiful little head of his.
