We just got back from a 4 day camping trip with lots of rain (a basenji personal favorite). We had 1 campsite, 2 tents, 4 adults and 4 dogs….what fun!!! I am including a few pictures of Zuri and her antics. I apologize for the lines in the pictures, it was the only way I could resize them for this forum.
Hi cleopatra, Great pic's noticed you have a elkie. Very handsome. I too have a elkie and 2 basenji's. My elk is getting very old almost 14 and has old dog issues . They from my experience are a great dog to get along with basenjis . After 10+ years of living with basenji's my elkie trys to act like them. When our elder basenji passed away a few years ago my elk really mourned his loss. Now the youngsters 3& 4 really test his patience. But he still likes to be in the group play. His tail just wags and wags- play with me too. When they stress him out too much he will snark at them. Our tri girl loves to push his buttons but she also looks after him. As much as they razzle him in true basenji fashion I think they will really miss him when our renal and liver issues claim him
Only a Basenji would sleep in a fire pit!
The most common saying in our house is ' yup, she's a Basenji'
The Elkhound (Max) isn't ours, the two larger dogs belong to our friends. Max doesn't care for Zuri too much, she always wants to play and he likes to relax. He does play nice with her when he feels like it though and that is usually fine with her.
Mya loves to camp! This picture was taken on our first week camping with her. We just got back from a 16 day camping trip (drove 3500 miles) and I haven't got to post those pics yet. She moped the entire day that we arrived home. Poor baby! She's a genuine camping B!!
