A question from a husband to Basenji lovers

What do you do when you give your wife everything and she still loves the dog more than you??????????????????
Sincerely, a lonesome husband

Yodel?? My DH knows the dogs come first with me and has been very accomodating. He has his space and I have mine. Although we do the odd thing together. We definitely have separate lives. We co-ordinate our time together.

I was going to suggest getting a second b for her. But for the fleeting moment that she first gets the new puppy (and loves you more than the original dog because of the puppy gift), unfortunately it would shortly be followed by her loving 1) original dog, 2) new dog, 3) husband…in that order. So that won't work.

I have another suggestion though...do what the bs do...shred some toilet paper, tear a blanket, eat a shoe, make a mess...at least you'll get her attention. 😉

Hahaha.. this is soooooo funny..!
BF always says to me that he has to fight Tillo for the first place on my 'who-I-love-most' list 😃 😃
I always say that I have two lists.. one for humans, one for animals.. So they are both number one 😃

It's simple really…
Spoil and cuddle the B, until you become number one on it's list.

...oh wait... then your wife would be jealous and mad at you... and may want another B to replace the one you stole...

I think Renaulft1 had the right idea – run through the house trailing TP 😃 😃

I LOVE the above quote, but from my personal experience…. flowers (from the yard or the local florist), cook a dinner (doesn't matter what it is), a hand picked glass of wine or specialty coffee....

Next, initiate the whoopie (Ohhhh so sorry, forgot the prep work....play with the dogs, feed the dogs, walk the dogs, pick up the poop, crate the dogs)

Put on the 'Barry White' and enjoy..until...(in a crate)the howling and screams start....or....(loose), the clawing at the bedroom door sands layer by layer off the 100 year old Oak door.

DON'T LET THEM IN!!! NOT NOW, NOT EVER !!!! That's where the whole problem starts.

I am just loving these responses from my husband's post!!!:D:D ROFL at the thought of him running through the house with the TP!:eek: I guess I should maybe pay a little bit more attention to him.;) That wine and Barry White music could maybe convince me to notice him more…:o
