How to stop a basenji from begging LOL

Let the boss of the house sit next to you on the couch, the cat. LMAO yes my cat begs too, but she at least does it politely and has learned that sneaky paws get her pushed off the couch. As for Tiggy, and Reggie begging she has taught them to back off away from the couch, she's such a hag sometimes but it can be funny. So if they get to close she swats them and/or hisses. Sometimes she even jumps to the coffee table and pushes them farther away.

I know sitting at the couch to eat helps in NO WAY to improve begging, but we are lazy, and Tiggy has just recently started to test the boundaries again, he's in the phase. So thats why I thought of it and I noticed tonight the part if Pigmy is on the couch with us, he avoids the couch.

Or you could just succumb to their begging and deal with the processed and liquified Taco Bell cleanup the next day… :rolleyes:

I tried to use as much non-disgusting terminology as possible. I posted about this 'incident' in another thread...appropriately titled Oh Dear God…

Yeah, I know, WHO gives their dog TACO BELL? Furthermore, who EATS Taco Bell??? 😃

LMAO, I will have to raise my hand to BOTH, I love Taco Bell, and I have been known to get a plain chicken taco, well with cheese and tomatoes for my guys. No sauce though (even though Reggie LOVES it) boxer butt is one of the worse when it is gassing you

I swear I've never heard a dog pass an 'audible', but Tucker certainly does. Sometimes I wonder if one of my sofa springs has just given out…and then the smell hits me...

"squeeeeeek".....BAM! choke choke

I LOVE Taco Bell! LOVE! When i went traveling around the world a few years ago i was CRAVING Taco Bell like you wouldn't believe… I actually looked on the Taco Bell website to see if there were any in the places I was going and there was supposedly one in Santiago, Chile.. where i was going 4 months into my travels...I spent my first day in Santiago there searching for it!!! Here is my blog entry from that day!

You poor thing, but that was quite the adventure lol, I had to read through more of your blogs, it sounds like you had a wonderful time

I've had plenty of dogs stinkin up the joint, but I never heard it till we had a Basenji. They jump up a couple of stairs and you hear this "poof".:D

Thanks! Yeah, the traveling was fantastic. Its amazing how much I started to crave "familiar foods" after being gone for so long. After I didn't find the Taco bell, I ended up at KFC ha ha.

The only time Ruby ever passes gas (she doesn't get human food, except a tiny bit of peanut butter in her kong) is when she has had shots at the vet. Then the next 4 hours after the shots are DEADLY…silent but deadly :eek:. The only dog I've ever actually heard let one fly is my friend's black lab...it farts all the time with plenty of sound :eek:.

Tucker's sound like a childrens bugle…if you can imagine a sound like that. Like a bugle, but MUCH smaller and higher pitched. He waits until I lie down next to him and then rips one in my face. Clever dog.

I drove 9 hours to Highlands, NC over the holidays. I always knew when he ripped one. He would politely leave the front seat and relocate to the back until the cloud dissipated.

This thread stinks! 😃

Tayda will let off some really stinky ones! Lenny really doesn't, or else he's learned to leave the room when he does….

Maggii will "fart" and cough… ggg... in her elder years now she has a persistant cough and will have a coughing rage... and fart at the same time... lucky that there is no odor... but you can sure here them....

goober farts silently. and in the car. when it's -7. and the car doesn't really have heat. during the conversation with my wife over whether we should have ever gotten dogs.

DH made a burger that I picked up for him from this gourmet grocery store near my work (an hour away, use to be our favorite store to shop in when we lived there in an apartment), he spent twenty minutes preparing the grill, his salad, hamburger bun, etc. and with one swoop of a second Zahra who had been sitting nicely beside him on the chair came in through his arm and body and took the top bun, must have dropped the burger on the floor and wasn't smart enough to run with it. :rolleyes:

DH put her outside and was fuming mad, I was nice and let her back in but put her upstairs in her kennel with her dinner. DH said she needed to stay in solitary confinement for a while because he was really mad.

She was back in our company within the hour. I think we probably could avoid the problem if we ate at the dining room table but like you said we are lazy! Oh, and the tv is in the living room! 😃

EL D kicks out the silent but deadly type. I haven't been able to figure out what tips it off though.

I recently gave Spence some of that EVO puppy food mixed in with his dry food at the evening meal. Well the result was rather odoriferous. He sleeps with us and I am now not allowed to give him any of it unless he eats well before bed time. I have woken up with his rear end pointed toward my face….kinda scarey.

Basil only passes gas when there's company over 😃 And BOY does it stink!
