Shango has his favorite spot on the couch that he has sort of claimed as his own. So, as I was sitting there doing some work (in his spot of course), Shango comes into the room and looks at me. My work was spread out everywhere so I said hello to him, gave him a little pat on the head and continued working.
This wasn't good enough. He left the room and then came back and just stared at me. I have him another pet and he again, left the room. This continued three more times until finally, I heard a terrible noise from in the hallway.
I rush over and Shango is pushing his paws against the bathroom door, making a terrible scratching/screeching noise (oh, just for perspective: I sometimes forget he's a basenji because he is not destructive in the slightest!). So I run and check to see what the noise is, Shango immediately darts into the living room.
I go back and there he is, Shango has reclaimed his spot on the couch. He scratched on the door because he knew I would get up and check. Clever, clever, basenji!
