    We have had a Basenji in our bed at night since 1990, largest number was 4, currently, 2 purebreds and a fake.

    Laughing at the "fake". What is the "fake"? My chow group calls dogs that aren't chows "faux chows". ๐Ÿ™‚


  • I sleep in Oakleys bed...he's kind enough to let me ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Oh, I think you might have "met" Moby, I don't talk about him here too much, he doesn't exactly belong. This is the original thread from about 2 years ago when we got him: https://basenjiforums.com/topic/13849/meet-moby/18

    He's actually a great little guy and I don't think my husband's life was complete until that dog moved in! He loves to run, and he comes out to chase the lure at coursing practice. Here in Canada the CKC has a new event for mixed breeds this season to be held at the lure trials; it's Chase Ability, and competing dogs can earn official CKC titles. Moby is going to love this!!

  • In their kennels. My red boy does not like to sleep on my bed and when I turn the TV off at night to go to bed he runs into his kennel and curls up in his blankies.

    That's totally opposite from around here. Teak doesn't like to watch TV, so he stays on the couch until the TV goes off. Then he wants under the covers.

    I DO remember Moby! What a cutie. He belongs... honorary basenji! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • First Basenji's

    Cosette would love to sleep in the bed, but we don't allow it. She's usually on the floor near the bed instead. She's currently being dogsat by my wife's mom, though, and she lets the dog in the bed. Funny thing is, when my wife and I stay at my mother-in-law's, Cosette sleeps in our room on the floor, even though she has the option to sleep with Grandma in the bed! We hope to crate to train her in the next few weeks for when we're both at work, but we don't expect her to sleep in the crate.

    Btw, pretty sure others feel the same... this is a community. While the focus is on basenjis, we talk about horses, cats, you name it. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Okay, you asked for it. He does like to be one of the gang, likes to think he's a Basenji (so why does he bark [and shed]?) and he LOVES chasing the lure!!!
    He is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club as Freemet's Mobylicious and he has earned his CA (chase ability) title, working towards his CAX.... and beyond. As long as I keep coming up with the 20 bucks, he'll keep earning those qualifiers! I've included a picture of him with his latest winnings.... the picture may, or may not, show up.
