Where is everybody???
Hi everyone. I haven't been on much in a long time. I have 2 basenji, Sayblee and Arwen. Sayblee had a lot of issues but am happy to say no more lumps in about 10 mos now! They are 7 and 5 yrs old.
Been a hard year here, lost my 32 yr old niece (medication interaction) in Feb, my elderly rottie Mukat in March, then my best friend, Sally, in April. Friend with brain cancer, who is younger than me and has two sons who are 14 and 16, is losing her battle though she has fought hard, tried experimental research, etc. They gave her 2 mos Sept 2006 so she has managed to buy herself a good amount of time but it is still very hard.
The basenji had a MASSIVE fight several mos ago, unbelievable amount of holes in them but only split ear needed stitches. Figured I would NEVER get them back together but after 3 mos of them being bored out of their minds either in crate or outside ALONE, only together after a month in my bed, I was able to potty together and let out for an hour at a time a few times a day. I now can leave them out about 2 or 3 hours but then bring one in so they don't get bored with each other and snarky. Sadly for Connor, a 120 pound rottweiler, I usually make him go with them so they have someone to chew on I cannot believe he will be 10 in Feb… old for a Rottie.
Then we went through the "lump in breast" agony (thankfully they determined nothing to worry about) and now a new problem... recurring corneal abrasion. LOL My old Rottie is holding up in old age better than I am in middle age!
Anyway, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, have managed to do a couple of home visits and a few doggie transports and can do more now that I have a dependable car (gosh I miss my 20 yr old jeep though! ).
