Hello, this is my first time to this site. All the years living with a Basenji and I never found it (I guess I was too busy running after Patsy). My grief in losing Patsy (she had to be put to sleep at age 16 1/2) has had me out looking at Basenji sites. Patsy lived a long and busy life. She was born on 01/09/1991 and passed away on 07/12/2007. She was pure Basenji in every sense of the breed. She never met a tissue that didn't need to be shredded, loved to eat underwear, had to finally be clipped outside with a coated cable as she broke everything else we tried, LOVED garbage and was only defeated in that endeavor by us spending $100 for a garbage can and she loved the sun so if you happened to be in her chair (which was any chair that had sun) she would jump right on top of you and plop down but was happier if you moved. She ate through the center of the childs gate we tried to use to keep her from going down the basement stairs, she would sit in my suitcase while I would try to pack (just to make sure I didn't forget anything) and needed to be covered by her blanket at night when it was bedtime. In the course of all that mischief she made her way into our hearts and she was very loved. When we had to take her to the vet for her last visit, she had 5 people with her when she passed over the rainbow bridge. We miss her so much…the house is so quiet. Thank you for reading.
