Having the Flu with Basenji's

I had the flu the last 4 days and was pretty much bed ridden- Thus the tail of two Basenjis, Naughty & Nice

Nice, is our girl, who became my Nana through the whole thing. She spent every minute by my side to comfort and keep me warm. Great dog, so gentle & kind. My new "favorite".

Then we have Mr Naughty, who spent most the time in his crate (at least while my wife was at work). All he cares about is himself and since I was sick, opportunity abounds! He could not go on walks, he had a lot of boredom to contend with.

Being sick with Mr Naughty was a pain in the butt, but great time spent with Mrs Nice. Basenji's are like people in that you get complete opposites.

I hope you are feeling better! The flu stinks 😞 Glad you had Nice to take care of you when Naughty was…being naughty. lol

Thanks, I'm on the mend but..

The whole runny nose tissue thing. Mr Naughty tricks you into stealing them.

No, really, he just wanted snuggle. The tissue he grabbed at last instance was just chance!

I ended up using a pair of socks to "plug" the tissues in my pockets!

Nice was very comforting, far better than any electric warmer-If only a Basenji could purr

Grunting will do I guess.

I remember a thread about someone finding out that the new vicks scented tissues are a basenji repellent. This may keep the naughty from running away with your tissues. I personally chose kerceifs instead, but I guess that probably doesn't work when you're using them every few seconds.

I just recently had the flu also. My little Roo(7 mths) stayed in bed with me and we just napped the whole day, which is very strange for him because he has alot of energy. Maybe he knew I was sick?

Glad you're feeling a little better. Dakota used to be a great nurse. I haven't been really sick in a few years, knock on wood, I think I would end up with a naughty and nice too.

Now that I am better and back to Mr Naughty's regular walks, he is back to normal. Just rested on the floor all night, no trouble.

Walks mean everything to Mr Naughty to keep him being a good dog.

Fighting the flu with Basenji's does help a little…....I still feel like crap:( .

I did manage to take this picture yesterday.......what a face.:D

I had the flu a few weeks ago, and Senji couldn't understand why I couldn't take him out for walks. Fortunately, my dad was able to walk him for me, but Senji still likes the way I walk him better! 😃 Much of the time I was sick, he either laid in the hallway outside the bedroom door or laid at the foot of my bed. Yes, they DO know when we are sick!

I love that picture Basenji Boy…. what a great shot... and I can just hear the swear words....

I'm really loving them both…...the little boy is so funny. I'm going to have a real hard time of it when they go.:(


It was warm and sunny yesterday…..they had fun being outside.

No snow?

We have had a snow storm or freezing cold every Tuesday since I can remember. Winter refuses to leave

Send some sun our way

Right in the middle of the state.

I think the rest of your B's are going to miss them too.

I don't have the flu but I am home from work today because I am going to get a shot in my foot to kill a nerve. I am nervous beyond words and Chase and Zahra have been cuddled up with me all morning which really has helped to keep me calm. I wonder if the podiatrist would mind them coming into the office with me for the shot? 😃
