New pictures

I took these today and I thought that I just had to share. They couldn't have came out better!



Are you serious with that thing in my face again?? Didn't you just do that yesterday?

I hope you enjoy!

Those are great! I am so glad they are getting along now!

Better than ever. Buster has come crate issues so today I decided that instead of taking them on the walk to pick up my kids I would gate them in my kitchen. Sounds like a good idea right? It is 20 degrees and we have 50 mile an hour winds….Weezie taught him every way to get out in less than 7 minutes. I ended up taking them for the walk anyway. I had to laugh, I tried every thing. I only had one baby gate because that was the only thing that I needed to keep her contained. Why she jumped it I have no idea, so I thought I will stack it on top of her crate. She learned in about 5 seconds that she could squeeze between the gaps in the crate, teaching buster the same thing. Okay, I hearded them back into the kitchen, I have the crate, cardbord box, gate and a bench from my kitchen table, that should contain them right? Nope she found another way and taught buster how to get out. To make a long story short I took the dogs for a cold walk...LOL

Weeziesmom,

Even though it is 20 degrees they look like they are enjoying sunbathing!

Gorgeous dogs! They are soaking up that sun! 🙂

Beautiful pictures…

Great pictures. The capped tri's look so much sweeter, less evil.

I really like the capped look…....pretty cool looking.:)

I was amazed to see how different his looks are to my other tri. I think that the breed is such a regal looking dog. They always look so proud. When I look at a basenji you can tell that they are always thinking about something. More than likely what they can destroy next!

Cunning and clever….....that they are!;)

I think he is making himself at home. He has really warmed up to us. I have learned that he loves to eat shoes, match box cars, his food and water bowls (he is on his third set) cell phones, thank goodness for insurance. Life is so much different with him. He is so much taller than my girl we weren't used to putting things up that high. But we learned very quickly where he can and can't reach. 🙂 I think I forgot his zipper fetish. I have replaced a few of them on my kids coats. lol It seems that after all the preparation we went through he is still finding things left here and there. Then when I find the after math, he will look at me with these big eyes, knowing that he isn't going to get into trouble. They sure do keep me on my toes. My mother stopped for a visit yesterday afternoon he tried to chew her zipper on her coat before she even took it off. I am going to try bitter apple. I have tried chew bones to curb his chewing however he tries to take weezies and they fight over them so I tried putting them in their crates to chew awhile, that doesn't work because buster tries to get out of the crate more than he chews. Pretty soon we will be zipperless people here. lol I think we can work it out though. Anybody know a good place to buy button fly blue jeans. Ahahaha

that first pic is just gorgeous. i'm glad he's keeping you entertained.

Yes he is keeping me very busy. There is never a dull moment between the dogs and the kids! The first picture was also one of my favorites.

They always look so proud

99% of the time!

Isn't that the truth. 1% evil lol

You can teach him to leave hers alone. Make them both sit for their chew; give hers first and make him stay with you when she dashes off to chew. {helps him see that she gets one/he gets one, and also gives her a head start!} Make sure he knows you have one for him also. He must sit and make eye contact with you before he is given his treat.

Once they both have a chew, make them stay in different spots. Stand between them, moving your body silently to block his attempts to get to her.
If necessary, tell him "no" or "leave it".

It shouldn't take long for him to learn that he gets his and she gets hers.
Eventually, he will just look when you hand her the treat and will sit and stare at your face until he gets his own, then he'll run to his own spot to chew his bone.
