Looks can be so deceiving- here is an article of a woman who adopted a rescue dog in N.J. Dog looks like a basenji - even her vet thought it might be basenji. She did an Embark DNA test - no basenji. Turned out the dog was a mixture of Mountain Cur, Rat Terrier, Beagle, and Boston Terrier. link text

Ever do massage on your B? My pups love begin massaged, especially on their feet (and who doesn't love a good foot massage!). Once I start massaging, they are asleep and snoring in no time. ~ Lori ~

Lori–funny you should mention that. When my last B was about 15, he started losing muscle in his back legs due to nerve degeneration from old age. So I took him to a physical therapy practice. I used to call his physical therapist his "personal trainer." Since Max hated water, instead of having a whirl pool bath at the end of his therapy, his PT would give him a massage. Since Becca had gone through lots of training for animal physical therapy, she was excellent at massage. Since Zoey goes into a trance almost when I massage her a little, I was planning to call Becca and see if I could bring her in just for a massage--kind of like a doggie day spa Tyler doesn't care for massage much--so this will be a girl's day out for me and Zoey

Doggy massage are part of our training ritual. We ask them to sit & we massaage & we get them to lay on their side & rest their face on the ground while we massage.
It's a method we use to relax our "feisty dogs" we use this also when we're around other dogs & they're too aroused. WORKS WONDERS!!!!!!!!
