The 4th of July is just around the corner and for those of us in the US, that means fireworks. They've already started in my neighborhood. So please keep that in mind when you take your pets out in the evening. I have not had a basenji that reacted to the fireworks, but many dogs often are very scared by them, to the point of running blind through/over fencing, etc. Stay safe.
For those in France, read the above in about 10 days, if fireworks are used to celebrate Bastille day.
