It was a little tongue-in-cheek my comment about the Basenji looking "pudgy". All 3 dogs appeared well fed. (or hey.... maybe the painter used fat brushes.... 😛 )
That was the extent of my "analysis".
Some kind of preperation I guess?
We 'dog -sat' my friends 8 month old chocolate lab this weekend -
all in the name of better preperation for a Basenji pup. So plenty of walks, up in the night to let him out for a wee, early morning wake ups, etc etc.
All went really well and both my kids got involved and enjoyed it.
Not a Basenji, granted, but more valuable pre-pup training!

The preparation doesn't hurt that's for sure. The kids can learn the responsibilities of dog ownership. You just don't want the Basenji to be a novelty that wears off.
