Basenji = Little Kid

I just had it re-assured that basenjis are partly just a 2-3 year old child. My roommates kid is visiting, and his mom is having the same arguments with their 3 year old son as I have with Medjai.

"You just played, now you MUST go to the bathroom. I know you don't want to, but trust me, you have to."

"Take a nap, you played all morning, and you always want to play later."

They both will just look to see when the parent isn't looking and do what they're not supposed to.

Difference is the "human" 2/3 yr old grows up… A Basenji...Never!

I do think your both right!

I always tell people that having a Basenji is like having a perpetual 2 yr old….so actually, you give Medjai more credit than I give mine, LOL.
