After 12 great years of being owned by a Basenji Lab Cross, I have taken the plunge and brought home a purebred tri female. We have named her Bassit (Ilicano for 'Little Bit') and we're already deeply in love with her!
Our 12 year old seems to be tolerating the new Interloper fairly well (so long as baby stays far away from the biscuit cupboard) and we're coping pretty well with the new family member, who is about 4 1/2 months.
Only little hiccup so far is that our Bassit apparently doesn't like it when I go to work. My downstairs neighbour called this morning at 7 a.m. to tell me that she'd been howling for a half-hour straight since I left. She seemed quite happy in her crate when we left her for short periods over the weekend, so I'm confused as to how she knew that I'd be gone for a few hours today! I'm hoping that if I peruse the forums I'll find some methods to make her first few days on her own a bit more tolerable (at least for the people in the basement)
