@B5004EVER , sounds familiar! Yes, they do like to make themselves comfy at your expense. One of mine liked to sleep horizontal across the bed, leaving my husband and me to cling to the edges, as you describe. Another caused us to almost die.....laughing. The covers were pushed up, and when we moved them we discovered her sleeping on her back, legs in the air, little butt right next to our heads! Hysterical! But most of the time our Basenjis were trouble free sleeping companions, although on occasion they did snore....

I have always had problems getting a waterproof coat to fit my basenji. To get them deep enough in the body, they're always too big/long and whippet coats aren't small enough. Does anyone have any suggestions or should I just get one made-to-measure?

Hi Noodle. I get mine from Country Mun. They are quite expensive but fit the Bs really well. I do have to roll up the legs a little for Nakura.
Also, I bought a very similar one at SKC a few years ago, not sure what stand but I can have a look for you if you want.

Tillo has a Hurtta jacket, size 36 I believe. I think it has a great fit. He can curl his tail over it, so it isn't too long and it is tight enough

Yeah looks great! I've got her a size 36 Hurtta one at the moment (a different style) but I have to pad it out by putting a jumper on her underneath it to get it tight enough!!
Tillo - such a handsome boy!

Maya has a wax jacket. I love it. I will say that it doesnt fit her perfectly as it was actually bought for my pugs at Crufts a few years ago, so wasnt fitted to Maya at all, but that considered, its not bad at all. It was fairly expensive, about ?40 i think, but is a proper, genuine wax jacket so 100% waterproof and i love it! Pugs are also supposed to have a square shape so that could be why it fits ok!
