@abonnard Pee pads got me through in the end, she would pee every 20 mins for the first months, then 40 mins, then she suddenly went to being able to hold it for many hours. One of the best purchases I got before she arrived was a small carpet washer, saved my sanity. The cleanup is so key otherwise they go back to the same spot.
Hello. I just joined your forum today. My basenji is 10 months old. She is a black and white named Swikiri Ketann. We simply call her "TANA". This forum is for her so it's under her name. "Swikiri" means sweet in South African.
Hello Ketan - Welcome. Is Tana your 1st Basenji? I also have a black and white named Duke. He was found when he was only 10 or 12 weeks old. He was so cute, I had to have him. I didn't know he was a Basenji until he was 6 mos old. He is now 9 mos old. He is my first B. Thankfully I found this forum, because I have and still am getting lots of information about this very amusing and interesting breed. (good and bad :rolleyes: ) Oh how my life has changed. That is a good thing. Enjoy - it's nice to have another Basenji contributor.
Welcome! What a nice name and how appropriate to have researched and found a fitting name from the breed's country of origin. I've been in such the "Mommy" mode that mine's name was from "The Lion King"! LOL…no idea if it means anything. I think I'm afraid it means something terrible that I won't like if I found out!
I've found this forum very fun, interesting and entertaining. Great people!
Nala, I once saw someone interviewed on television who said she had allowed her four-year-old to name her… new sibling. She chose the name Nala.
I can't imagine letting one of my kids name one of my other kids. He/she would have ended up with a name like "Spaceboy" or "Nifty Ned."
Welcome to the forum. I can't wait to see pictures of your b. I love all dogs, especially basenjis, but i think the b&w's are simply stunning. Glad to have you with us.
