My hubby loves, loves my Basenji, Sahara. If I mention that she needs something like a new coat, food, toy, he says, "Well get it for her, here's my credit card. My husband is very frugal, he does not waste money, at times he squeaks when he walks. I found my furbaby in a pet store, and when I called about buying her he said, "That is too much money for a dog". Well, my son was with me and he paid for a third of the dog, and when we called him back (about 4 times total calls) he said, "I don't care, do what you want". Well, I DID!!!! I brought her home and he has loved her ever since, he was jealous in the beginning b/c she slept beside me, and followed me around, laid in my lap. I told him if you want Sahara to love you then you have to feed her sometimes and play with her. Well, now she loves him too, and he loves, loves this dog like I have never seen before. He calls her his little girl, and she greets him when he comes home from work. I want another B, but I don't know if he will let me. He says Sahara is enough for us, I say she needs a playmate. We'll see !!!!!!!
