Hi you all.
Our daugther was born October 2nd 2008.
We own Basenjis since 11 years now but Felicity is our first child. So naturally i was a little afraid about how the dogs would behave towards her once Felicity would be home from the hospital.
All i can say is that i am so extremely proud of my five B?s they are so sweet to her, gentle and loving, as if she has always been with us!
They even - and that is really making everything a lot easier - accept all of Felicitys toys, blankets, beds as NOT-FOR-BASENJIS! And that eventhough all the toys laying around for all those years were Basenji-things. But they understood very fast and there was not the slightest problem yet (always add YET owning a Basenji).
Our oldest male - Aragorn - is very protective of our girl, always at her side. Our oldest female lost interest when she found out that i will take care of the baby myself and she would have to wait for her next litter. Troy and Casia are pretty much ignoring her since she can not play yet and Demian still did not give up hope that the baby would do something entertaining like running around with him.
I am really looking forward to the time when Felicity becomes a toddler… chasing after the Basenjis.
Hell will break loose here and i am glad to be at a settled age... maybe i should still start TAI-CHI, autogene training, some sound or light therapy for the nerves, just in case...
Just in case...
