They are home!

Yesterday I brought home my new family members, Tino and Robyn. They are from Starfyre Basenjis, Tino is 12 years old and Robyn is 7. They are fantastic, so sweet and well-behaved!! I was nervous about how they would handle the transition, but it feels like they have always belonged here. They are pretty good in the backyard but I am still nervous about how they might do out there unattended, so I am watching. I left them home alone for 1 hour today and they were no trouble at all. However, I plan on remaining alert for typical b antics! We went for a walk and I believe they will need some training here, I am thinking it might be best to take them one at a time to work with them.

This is their first time staying in the house day and night…they seem to love it!

I will continue to rely on this great community to help me adjust to my new life...

Congrats on the new additions and thanks for adopting the older gen!

Congrats. They both look so comfy in the pictures.

Congrats! Enjoy your new family members 🙂 They look great!

Yay for Starfyre!! My Zip was not bred there but she lived there a couple years and was intended to be included in the breeding program. Denise's plans for her changed so she was available as a golden opportunity about a year ago. We probably met your two when we visited Denise. Congratulations on your new additions. And kudos for adopting the older B, that is wonderful!

Congratulations on your new ready made family!

Oldies ARE goodies!

Congrats…. and I know Robyn, she is a sweetie...

Bless your heart! May you make wonderful memories together. :):):):):)

Congrats on your new additions..they look like they've made themselves right at home! I met Tino last year…he was a doll.

Awwww congrats! They look like real sweetie pies!!!

they certainly look like they are home!

thanks everyone! I am delighted to hear some of you know Robyn and Tino! I am so blessed to have had your input!

I'm curious about somethings…Tino has been clicking is teeth when he sniffs Robyn. Does this mean she is almost in heat?

And Robyn has a habit of dancing back and forth on her front paws, it is too cute! But I have no idea what she means...is this common?

Congrats!!!!! What a sweeties….

Have fun with them!

Congrats on adopting the "older" generation!

I would have thought that Robyn would be spayed?

Denise thinks she wants to breed her one more time and then we will spay her.

Robyn is a love, I agree!

Tino's clacking might indicate she's getting close, although this isn't the 'usual' time of year. I would definitely keep an eye on her, just in case.

I'm glad they are adapting well to their new home. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with them.

Just curious, is Tino intact as well?

Tino has been neutered. I thought it was an unusual time of year, too. Maybe she is on the end of the cycle?

Cool. That would be a complicated situation to say the least if they were both intact and she is in her heat cycle.
