I'm not sure where to talk about general things, so please move this if it needs to be, mods.
Well, about two or three days after I posted our introduction on this forum, our brand spanking new Basenji girl went…
Yup. Ick. Man, I've never had a dog in heat before- never wanted one, either!
It's made things a bit trickier- she doesn't like wearing britches, she doesn't like being in her crate (she goes- but very relunctantly) and without britches on, I don't want her loose in the house, but I also don't want her out in the yard! ACK!
Anyways, we are surviving though. She is stubborn, but I absolutely cannot fathom why she went through two homes before she ended up in our home! She isn't destructive- well, we haven't tempted fate and left her loose in a room of electronics or anything, but that's common puppy sense. She was supposedly not house trained, but accidents have been few and far between. She is loving- she'll jump on the couch and cuddle. She doesn't really terrorize the cats, she's good with our other dogs.
So anyways, Kanga is doing great. We are waiting for this heat cycle to be complete and then she'll go in to be spayed. Poor little girl- so much happening to her at once! (Yes, I know to be careful so she is not bred by any random stray, but I really would prefer to have her fixed after her heat since she's already in the middle of it).
