What does your basenji like to 'sing' to?

While replying to a thread, it got me thinking. What does everyones basenjis like to 'sing' to?

Mine are not very vocal but the favourite in this house has to be the theme tune to 'Coronation Street'. I heard all three of them singing to it for the first time a couple of nights ago. It was so very tuneless! lol 😃

The other favourites which set them off are the 'Countdown Clock' and the 'Neighbours' theme and 'Emmerdale' can sometimes raise a whimper too!

In this house it is Emmerdale everytime:rolleyes: it use to be just Kwame that did but now Belle joins in and they actually sound quite nice together as Kwame is low and Belle is high. Will need to video it sometime and put it on here:D

Benji didn't used to sing. Would love to hear someone elses Basenjis singing though 🙂

Blaze sings when ever I touch the piano… no one else, just me.

You will often get a basenji chorus at shows! 😃

How Sweet 🙂

Otis has yet to make a sound..as far as yodeling or "singing"..he does cry and yawn loud though..
Our foster Bana doesn't sing very much either, every now and then she will let one out…and then she looks as if she has no clue who just did that..

Arleigh hasn't try to "sing" to anything musical yet (my last one sang to my clarinet and harmonica). I can get him singing if he is feeling 'frisky' and I sing-song his name. I think he just likes to make me look bad when he won't do it in front of other people:)

Maya just sings along with me 😃 Not sure if it is a way of her trying to make me shut up cos my singing is terrible, or because she enjoys it and wants to carry on singing… 😕

Jenson is the singer in our household, when I go to the office and take him with me along with Kalusha and Solar, he starts to sing when I am driving for 20 meters and stops singing at the first roundabout… I let him sing because he doesnt listen when I say NO, when I let him sing for those 500 meters he is very happy , and drags along solar and kalusha to sing as well,,,, but solars sing qualities arent very good ( dont tell her >grin < ) when Lio and Thirza ( the b'sof my parents ) are also in the car, Thirza sings a long as well, Lio just looks and seems to say " help" hahaha

when the girls are in season and I have to take them with me also then Jenson is allowed to sit next to me and he sings then about all the time, he responds to the command " sing" as well nowadays , and at home when we say SING he and our galgo Barry start to sing and most of the times Kalusha doesnt sing along but the 3 ibizans do 🤣

jenson also responds when we make the little sounds he does 😃

Found this on YouTube. Seemed to keep up to the song rather well…haha.

Brando & Ruby both sing on command - I say "who has a song" right as they are about to get their dinner and they both sing. They both also sing to the video on YouTube of Zeke the basenji.

Liyah doesn't sing on command yet, but she does sing to her "7mo. female basenji friend" that she sees in the glass on the stereo cabinet…she sings to her, brings her toys to her, plays tag with her (this happens when the 2 adults are worn out by her and no longer will play with her)...it cracks me up :D:D. She also will sing to Brando if she wants him to play with her.

That sounds very funny!! You'll have to demonstrate it for us all at a show sometime. 😃 lol

First Basenji's

Cody doesn't sing when I'm around 😞 When we first moved in with my parents, he would whine and scream when he saw me leave the driveway, so my mom would sing-song to him, which would get him going. Now when I leave, as soon as he begins to whine, she starts singing, and he will sing along. I just tell myself that when I'm with him, he's too happy to do anything but cuddle and play with me, lol.

Um… Or not!! :o :p

We live near the train tracks and Bongo mimics the train perfectly. Amtrak makes him sing more than the Coaster (local commuter train).

Basenjibythebay..that is so funny. I would love to hear a train blow by and B's joining in..

If anyone is on Facebook, I have put a video of them on there which I filmed last night of their screeching session. I shall have to find out how to put it on You-Tube.
