Sharron is sooo right. I dont know if we will ever have a puppy again. Older rescue dogs just seem more our style now. Everybody loves a puppy but our older girl is just a joy and has not caused as many stresses yet.
Youngandtired, I am sorry to hear that you may have an affected Basenji. I know how devastating it can be when they start spilling sugar. Our Marley was 5 when she was finally diagnosed. Our vet sent us to a specialist who was not very optimistic at first. But once she realized that we were going to do everything we could including learning as much as we could she really turned around and was very helpful. Once you start treating Fanconi it just becomes a routine. It was fairly easy and you start to appreciate every day you have with your pooch. The only hard part was the days leading up to the blood testing which we did every 3-6 months. We just didnt want any of the lab values to get worse but if they did we knew we would just deal with it and keep on moving forward. We treated Marley for 7 years. I wouldnt have changed a thing.

Hello everyone I new here. I am a very proud mama of a 1.5 yr old tricolored basenji girl "kiro". we live in Westminster, just moved from Baltimore.
We still haven't meet any other basenjis in our area I always feel bad that kiro doesn't have a playmate. and i don't have anyone to discuss my baby gurls habits with .
So this forum is perfect for us! We are actually looking into adopting another B boy for kiro now that i have a lot more space.

Welcome our neck of the woods. I live just a bit past Emmittsburg in PA so I'm not too far. The Mid-Atlantic Basenji Club meets at the Carroll County Agricultural Center right there in Westminster. Our next meeting is 1 June and there will also be a spring fun match that same day. It starts at 0900. There is a Yahoo group for the club that has info about the event. It's fun and games. It's really neat to see so many basenjis in one place. Hope you can make it. It's a nice club to belong to.
