Greetings!

Hi All!

I have enjoyed the threads on the forum for the last few months. My husband & I live with our basenji's in Orange County California (I have 5). These dogs are a real hoot! We have learned to be pack leader's with are gang and spent coutless hours training. Basenji's are fun dogs to watch and be a part of their lives. My dogs like to go camping & fishing with us too!

One funny thing I was wondering: All my dogs feet smell like corn nuts or dorito's chips! I was wondering if anyone else noticed that with their basenji's feet?

I've read that a lot on this forum – usually it's fritos. I don't think my dogs' feet smell like fritos, but their bedding does. I have to wash it frequently cuz I can't stand the smell!

Welcome to the forum, can't wait to hear more about your bunch and to se pictures.

Both my guys (basenji and boxer) have the frito toes but manly when it's warmer out.

I haven't noticed that smell before, but Medjai's coat smells like smoke. (almost hickory)

Great now I am gonna have to start huffing my puppy's feet πŸ™‚ LOL…...Welcome please get us some pictures....we are all addicted!!!!

Yes! Lenny and taydas paws definitely do smell like corn chips… i love it.

Welcome to the forum. I've never noticed my dogs feet (and I don't intend to start smelling them now πŸ™‚ ) Pictures when you get a chance – we're addicted to pictures.

I notice the smell most strongly when Zip is real sleepy, like just waking up. And I hadn't noticed the smell coming from just her toes, I smell it on her coat as well.

Welcome to the pack. Can't wait to see pictures!
