soooo last night we got our third basenji.. well technically our first..
Maggie was my boyfriends dog when he was with his ex. & the reason he got rocky. when they broke up, she took her. dan was heartbroken. for the past year and 3 months hes mentioned her, how he wanted to steal her back.. and all kinds of goofy stuff. when we first started dating, dan puppysat for a week and that was the last time he saw her.
last night a whole long drawn out story, which i wont get into to save everyone from reading a BOOK, (but if someone wants to know i'll share;) ) but after texting a friend about what was going on, dan decided to get her number and call her to see what was up. apparently her mom said she was gonna take maggie to the pound and bc shes never there, she cant do anything about it. so dan said "i'll take her." She may just be here temporarily, but she could also be here for good, depending on if his ex can find her own place or not.
after his ex dropped her off, we found over 25 ticks on her, because the mom left maggie outside. her ears are black around the rims, and you can see her ribs. Maggie was hit by a car in september, and had to have surgery on her back left leg, so she hops around and doesnt put much pressure on it. she cant really play with rocky and mia because of it. right now we have her in the living room, alone, until she gets used to our house again. her and rocky have growling matches but her and mia seemed to get along. (odd because she lived with rocky for almost a year) we gave her a bath this morning, and found 3 more ticks. dans calling the vet to make her an appointment to have her checked out.
man is she a talker rocky and mia are always so quiet.. and maggie HOWLS all the time! it really is adorable..
i took some pictures last night.. and ill upload them when i get a chance !
