The gang

I had Willy and Max together today and I thought I'd take these shots to show just how big Max is. Willy is big for a B/W and Penny is good sized too…. Max isn't fat, just really big.:D
I even let them run together today, I just can't seem to get a clear picture of them running with my camera.:rolleyes:

I had jasper, Raven, Penny and Willy running together in the small yard.

Gotta throw in a sleep picture.:D Jasper, Willy, Raven, Penny and Ren.:)

Greetings from Basenji Park🆒

Is that a trait of Africans? Ramsey is 1/8 African and he is larger – 18" (if I measured correctly) and 28lbs. He seems huge compared to the 1 year olds which are both just under 16" and 22lbs.

Ramsey is actually in back so he doesn't look so big.

Here's another – Ramsey's in the center

It sure is with the one's that I have but I don't think I could say all Africans are bigger.
We just got our copy of the 2006 BCOA National Specialty DVD and they had an African competition, for the most part they seem to be bigger, heavier boned, but not all of them where tall. There where a couple of smaller versions as well, some very small. The full Africans seemed "spooky", but they weren't really experienced in the show ring and that had a lot to do with it. Out of all of mine, the dogs with the most African blood seem different, I have to watch them around our other dogs and strangers.

Max is 19.5 inches at the shoulder and 36lbs CLeo 18 inches and 28lbs. Penny is a tad smaller maybe 26lbs or so. Raven and Jasper look like midgets compared to these guys.

Just how do you handle so many B's, I am amazed that you can care for that many. They require alot of time and patience, if my Sahara doesn't get enough attention from us she let's us know. I just discovered yesterday a chair that had been nawed on, it made me sick. The chair was a gift and can not be replaced. I provide her with plenty of other stuff to gnaw on but she seems to surprise me every now and then with something I care about that is nawed. Also, your babies are just beautiful, and penny looks alot like my B.

We have some funiture that the Basenji's redesigned for us.:D

Four of ours don't get the run of the house, just the two oldest, Max(6) and Cleo(4), they are seperated most of the time from the others….Penny can hang with either group. The others are all two years or younger and we keep them in the Pet/reptile room for the most part, they still require supervision when loose in the main part of the house.:rolleyes: We use gates, seperate yards to seperate the two groups and it's a family job we all share, I'm lucky to still have my 2 son's living at home....they help.

All of the pictures shared are great. They are such beautiful dogs! I can't seem to get enough of them!

Thanks Nala, my goal is to finish Basenji Park to my liking, retire and raise Basenji's…..lot's of them.:eek:

Tri's......gotta get me some Tri's.:D

The African dogs are a bit different I would agree with BBoy. My 2 Bs have African bloodlines in their pedigree.

C3 is just a heftier dog, he's also taller & just broader at about 25-26lbs. Topaz is more traditional B looking.

C3 is completely independent & very stubborn. He doesn't do laying on our laps or up against our legs. He sits very gentlemanly for his affection & we MUST comply otherwise he dips his head exposing his neck…as if to say "right there! Get it? Scratch right there on my neck behind the ears!" LOL 😃 He's very friendly tho.

Topaz-loves lots of affection & likes to be cuddled a lot but also VERY independent outdoors. I need to be careful with her around strangers both in and out of the house.

Sounds good Basenji Boy, don't be surprised on one of my frustrated days if a tri by the name of Nala shows up on your doorstep!!

I'd take her in a heartbeat, but you'll never ever do that, even on the worst days.;) She'll just give you one of those looks and all would be forgiven.:)

If I do ever get the Tri bug( I feel like I'm coming down with something already:D ), it will be for a pair of them.:eek: :eek: :eek:

You're so right, but I like to tease about it on "those" days! It sounds like you've got the bug for certain!

@nala121498:

It's Senjfever I think.:D

I had a red and white before, but now that I have a tri… I just think they're so beautiful! I would take four if I could!!! lol... I want more!!! but the only way I could ever get another is if somebody just dropped it off and then I'd have no choice but to keep it! 😛

Your dogs are so beautiful! Makes me jealous 😉

There was a Tri female in Max's litter, I liked them when I saw her.
It's very interesting with all the different combinations of coats.

They can be very addicting:) That's why it's fun that we have this forum and can share pictures and experiences of these wonderful creatures.

I love looking at Basenjis. Your B's look like my boy Duke. Though I'm not completely sure he is is full or what else he might be, because he doesn't have as short of fur as I see in most pics. I've tried contacting breeders here, but I have not gotten any response (interest) that they would meet with Duke . . . sigh . . . Thanks Basenji Boy for sharing your beautiful pride.
