I'm going to regret posting this…but Liyah, my 5 mo, has only ever chewed on chew toys...not even her stuffed toys (she plays with those), no bedding, no furniture, no electronics. She hasn't been destructive at all. I'm sure she'll start tonight. :rolleyes:
My 2 4yo adults on the other hand more than keep me on my toes…although I think Ruby (Liyah's granny) really only is left chewing Brando's spoils and then she gets fingered for the crime. The only direct destruction I can link Ruby to was a $270 cashmere sweater...that was enough. Brando on the other hand has been caught with my iPhone (just bite marks at this point), the power adapter to my laptop, shoes, sunglasses, mail, books, a couple chairs (hasn't touched furniture since I've been using tee tree oil).
The one thing I've learned is that no matter how much I think I've basenji proofed, I always seem to miss one key item.
Jess...I love how you talk like the rest of us that have damage from basenjis..."Maya didn't do THAT much damage"...we all try to rationalize it...ha, ha, ha
How long ago was it i said that about Maya? A month?? :p Nah, she is a puppy, puppies chew. My lab Riley ATE my mums utility room when he was a puppy - flooring, door, doorframe and even chewed the walls. Cant help but think Maya is not bad when thats what im comparing her to :rolleyes:
I did for get my phone actually, that has tiny puppy tooth marks all over the bottom of it (kinda gives away the guilty party :rolleyes: ) cos i went to sleep with it on the bed by accident and Madam must have woken up in the night and found it…
