• I can't believe that tomorrow evening we will be brining Kiya home. She just got her 3rd set of shots yesterday and is ready to go.
    I am running over the list of what to get. Leash, Collar, potty pads, chew toys….man oah man how exciting it is to have another B in our house.
    I've never used potty pads. Chance just learned to potty outside from the beginning. I am a little concerned that when I put one out Chance will shread it before Kiya even has an opportunity to use it.
    I was told to purchase a "puppy go potty" with the litter. I've never used it before. Any training advice on this please???


  • WOOHOO~~
    I am so envious!!!
    I am new to this board, and I missed all the announcements.
    Who is Kiya's breeders and who is she out of??


  • Kiya is from Ken and Marilyn Leighton and Donna Troyna with Zuri Basenji's.
    She is also Fanconi Clear.


  • I can fill in the rest of the Blanks, she is sired by Ch Arubmec's Titus and out of MBIS Ch Zuri's Mugabe (aka - Gabii)…

    And Vanessa??.... have you explained all this to Chance?..ggggg If he is like all the other Basenjis, he will be thrilled to have a "visitor"... until you explain that she stays!


  • Hahahaha Pat.
    I spoke with Marilyn yesterday and was advised on how well Kiya needs to be treated. 🙂
    Its gonna be interesting to see how well Chance gets along with Kiya. Since he has become a typical teenager he likes to show that he is top dog. 🙂
    Its gonna be an exciting weekend!!!!!!


  • So on the potty pad thing: as you know Dallas is only 3 months & I decided to try the potty pads. Honestly, for me they didn't work. Out of the whole dang package I only actually went through 4 of them before totally giving up. Of those four, that is the amount of times he actually went on them. One of those four he actually went half on the carpet & half on the pad. Then I finally gave up on them when he caught on that they were indeed shredable so he started dragging them around the apartment & trying to shred them. I was done. Haven't used them since & amazingly, no accidents in the house for over a week now!!! 🙂


  • Congratulations! I still remember bringing little Lenny home for the first time. It was like a tornado was running through the place. Potty training seemed really easy though, he just did whatever Tayda did… I always joked that Lenny probably thought his name was "Tayda-and-Lenny" cause I always called them together...

    Good luck! It will be so fun!


  • Alex and I are crossing our fingers that potty training is quick and painless on our house. I remember (wish I didn't) Chance learning to go outside. That sucked. I hated when he would jump on our bed and just pee 😞
    Were excited to have a new little one. We have been told that girls train quicker with potty training. LOL


  • Yippee! I hope you can sleep tonight! Pictures tomorrow…or when you can, of course! It's gonna be a heck of a weekend! Can't wait to hear & see all about it!


  • Congrats on the second.;) Let the games begin.:D

    Congrats on the second.;) Let the games begin.:D

    Let the games begin is soooo right Basenji Boy!! I had no idea what I was getting into when I got my second B, a little girl, a little over a month ago!! Well I did, but I didn't expect it to be so much fun!! Basenji 500s, wrestling matches, fights over bones…..It's a blast! The good thing is the older B, about 13 months old, is really helpful when it come to the potty training thing. They also do a GREAT job at tiring each other out in the back yard!!:D

    It is amazing how the first helps with the second. If you have the first set in your routine, the second falls right into line. We are temporarily housing some 4 month old basenji puppies they brought from Africa and they're almost house trained:eek: , it's only been three weeks. We did very little, the other B's did the work for us.:)

    I'll always have two or more.

    Good luck with your babies, have fun!!!!!:D


  • Speaking of Potty Training. I made a quick stop to the local pet store last night to pick up some last minute supplies for Kiya and found the Puppy Go Potty. I decided to give it a try BUT the sales person made the mistake of showing me some other type of potty box which had astro-turf. I of course had to buy it too. I can't help it….I spoil em. Now she has a choice on where to potty...They told me that if one doesn't work that I can return the other. 🙂


  • I can't wait to see more pictures of your new baby girl soon!!! Have fun picking her up & introducing her to Chance 🙂


  • sooo exciting! i was nervous for a month before we got mia!! 😃 good luck with everything!! i'm sure you'll let us all know how it goes!!
