As you might know the weather is breaking in the Midwest so Roo(basenji), Bonzo(Boston Terrier) and I finally get to go to the park on regular basis. During the winter months I did attempt to get the dogs to the park on many occasions but we cut our walks down to 3 miles from 6 miles per day.
We have been able do 3 miles in less than an hour. So for the past couple of weeks we have just been doing 3 miles. Yesterday we walked 3 miles in the rain and both dogs did fine.
Today we walked 4 miles in the morning and both Roo and Bonzo seemed to have a lot of energy left. So this afternoon, I met Miranda at the park after she got of work and we did another 3 miles.
When we got home, Roo was sitting up so he could be close to us but he could hardly keep his eyes open. In fact he was falling asleep in the sitting position and only waking up when he started to lean in one direction or another to catch himself from falling over. Roo is so tired that he did not even want lap time tonight.
So Miranda put Roo in his bed and covered him up with a blanket(its still about 57 degrees here). Now Roo is not moving at all. Even when we call his name just to wake him up we have to call his name several times but he just cracks his eyes about half way open for just a second, kinda gives us a dirty look, ignores us and goes back to sleep. Bonzo on the other hand is full of energy. We know Basenji's are tough little dogs but…......
Is my Basenji Broken????
