Registration papers should be proof, but without DNA confirmation one can never be positive. I know a breeder (in another breed) who was getting old and a bit confused and I am sure some of her pups' parents were not accurately attributed, but the pups were purebred, just possibly from different sire. Coat colour can vary tremendously and it's more likely when it isn't a disqualification in the breed. If you are buying a dog described as purebred then there should be registration papers given to you. A DNA test should tell you whether the dog is Basenji or mixed with something else, if you really want to know.

I know we've had a thread before about how our beasties like to wash our skins for us. I just had to share this episode that happened the other night.
EL D and I were playing in the living room and he got distracted and moved on to explore something that caught his attention. So I just continued to sit on the floor against the couch and watched TV not paying further attention to him. Some minutes later he jumps on the couch (no big deal) and pretty soon I feel this paw on the top of my head pulling it backwards so he could lick my forehead. As i looked up at him he just continued down my face, licking everyhting (yuk). But I couldn't stop laughing because of the paw on the head part.

That is soooooo sweet, they surely love attention and will do anything to get it back once they decide they want it again, it has got to be when they want it, haha"!!! How can you not love him to pieces,

My 2 have to clean any wound they find. Mosquito bites to scratches are fair game.
Katie goes overboard and will chew off any scab she finds and can get to….eeewwwwwwwwwww.
