Let me first apologize for venting but I just can't take it anymore :mad:
I have this absolutely adorable looking, cute as a button 1 year old tri female who is not what she appears to be. An absolute evil little being. You look at her and your heart melts but beneath that cute exterior is this ball of nastyness that is just waiting to burst with pure evil.
She has taken over the house. Kiya does what she wants, when she wants and just does not care who she hurts in the process. Yeah…a REAL tri. :rolleyes:
I know, I know, everyone warned me and told me "its a tri thing" but c'mon...seriously...she is a nightmare! LOL
She abuses poor Chance. The guy just can't fight back anymore. His poor neck is used and abused. A real chew toy. We have even taken extreme measures to apply a small amount of vicks on his collar to keep her away. It doesn't work for very long. If Chance just moves Kiya is all over him showing how dominant she is. I'm sure the poor guy gets the point but she just loves reinforcing it 100 times a day. I really feel bad for the guy. This 1 year old girl is whoopin his Basenji butt!
When we sleep at night the dogs are to sleep on the floor on their OWN beds. Chance has learned and loves his bed but not Kiya. She will keep you awake all hours of the night jumping right on you trying to get under the covers and IF you give in...she will stretch that little body hogging an entire queen bed. Alex and I nearly fall out so we fight her and it is literally a fight to keep her off the bed. She will not let us sleep. Its like she knows that if she just keeps it up she will eventually win. Argh! Needless to say...we don't sleep. I am sure you are thinking throw her out of the bedroom...we'll we done that and you want to know what she did...she proceeded to poop and pee all over the carpet as if to say "here...this is for you...enjoy".
You yell at her and she just wags that little curly tail and gives a little grrr-baroo and you just can't discipline her anymore. She knows she has you wrapped around her little paw.
Before Kiya, Chance was the difficult one...now I call him my "golden boy". He is a gem compared to her. hahaha
We love our little gremlin but we just don't know how to deal with her. Man is she one complex girl. :rolleyes:
Does anyone else go through this? What do you do? Do you have any sanity left?????
I seriously think we need to create a group called the B.A.R.U.
Basenjis Are Ruling Us
Where we can get together and teach one another how to outsmart our Basenjis. We will teach each other how to take control once again. LOL
They really are an addiction and at times I feel like I am loosing...yet I love my little fur-babies
Anyone up for a support group?????? Hehehehehe
