I ran into the petstore today to visit the puppies- I like to say hi and show them some lovin' because I know how miserable they all are cramped up in those cages and there was a basenji! It broke my heart more than anything and I took him out and played with him, giving him lots of love.
The petstore owners were trying to push him off on me like poor merchandise! Saying how good his breeders were (listed somewhere in MO) and he was and how my experience with basenjis would help. It's so sad!
