I know a few people mentioned that their basenji's sleep along the back of their sofa when i posted some pictures of Maya doing it, but i was wondering just how many do this? And, WHY?
I have never had another dog do this, only my cat Simon does. I guess that could explain it as basenji's are always described as very catlike. Or maybe its a dominance thing? Wanting to be higher than the other dogs (who sleep on the seat part of the sofa) to show they are top dog?? Maya is generally quite submissive with my other dogs though and i wouldnt say she is top dog in the house, though maybe she is now we have lost Gracie who most definately was…
But its really strange. She only started doing it a couple of months ago, but now whenever im (or anyone!) is sat on the sofa Maya gets straight up on the back and sits right behind my head. Right now she is fast asleep with her chin resting on my shoulder :rolleyes:
But yeah... Is it a basenji thing in general or just a quirk a few have??
