Where did that Basenji go?

OK I take Buddy to the vet for an x-ray and they take him in the back. 10 minutes later the vet tech comes out with Buddy by the collar and his leash in the other hand. "oh didn't you know about the escape trait"? 😃


Lupin will actually take this leash back and replace it for free. :p

I always spray all my leashes with Bitter apple. It doesn't stop the chewing, but it does slow them down.

I'll have to do that Sharron.

I'm surprised Lupine doesn't have a "Basenji waiver" in it's warranty! Buddy does nice work, he could get a job in quality control/testing department fro Lupine!

He loves to chew. On walks if there's a twig or small branch he has to stop and bust it up. My other Basenjis never chewed the leash like this character. :rolleyes:

Persistent!

My old vet learned the hard way with towels. Kananga shredded their towels when he was isolated after surgery. I remember them telling me "oh he'll be out of it for the rest of the day anyways". I guess he had enough energy…. 😃

hahahaha great!

Buana did that once when he was a young dog… we were eating in de restaurant and we checked him almost every minute (he was plaing underneeth the table) and a minute later my mom says "hey, that's a great looking Basenji at the other site of the restaurant, playing with those people" OMG it's Buana!

They always are going with us to the restaurant, most people around us aks us when we leave "did you have those dogs during your whole time with you???" (they only could smell it from the little treats we have with us, they love it so much :D)

Hah, Paco did the same thing to his first leash when we leashed him in the kitchen with his food while we ate pizza in the next room. Had to get a new leash and switch to keeping him on the balcony for such occasions.

Blaze is famous at our vet's… he went in for surgery and while recovering, he ate his cone, the harness off of himself, the vet wrap on his leg, the three leashes and one vet assistant's coat hanging on his kennel, and his bedding. They removed everything.
He ate his neighbour's bedding, vet wrap, and was working on his cone when they caught him. This was through chainlink fence.
They weren't even surprised when I had to bring him in for eating an umbrella last year.

LOL, that's amazing! They don't call him Blaze for nothing!:D He ate an umbrella?? So he swallow pieces of it and you had to get him into the vet for it? This guy is a machine!

One of my early basenjis had to have an op at the vets. It was the vet's practice to tie dogs recovering from surgery to the leg of a table in the recovery room. Guess what! The vet returned to find Bernie up and about and wandering round the room. He had eaten through the table leg. No leashes for him!!

Dan i bet you were just glad Buddy felt well enough to chew his lead into 3 pieces 😉

You got that right!;)

Yup, three metal spines and the majority of the fabric. He also has a fish allergy, and of course the fabric was coated in a fish oil to repel water… his reaction to fish is known as "3-foot-rocket-butt". During his recovery, I was torn between relief, sympathy, anger, and disgust. The worst part... he was 14 when he did that! Thankfully he's slowed down since then...
I do it for the snuggles. As long as he's not shooting anything out of his rear, he's welcome on my bed for snuggles.:D

OMG, he was 14 when he did all that damage at the vet?! :eek: What did he do when was young?!

These posts are some of the reasons I love Basenjis - they are always able to surprise even the veterinarians!!

Impressive. You have to love how determined Basenjis can be when they need to get something done, even if it doesn't make sense. 😃
