Has anyone had a basenji who xpresses their feelings with their ears? Lori our female can only make one noise, a growel, so she does that @ varying pitches and speeds while wiggling her ears. To the back means anxious, to he side is adventerous, about half way inbetween excited, etc. Anyone ever encountered this?
Yes, Basenjias are usually very good at using their ears and body language, with various sounds accompanying the movements. Otis did the same thing, sometimes and other times no signs what so ever of what mood he was in until he showed it, bad or good.
Aside from personal aesthetic preference, I think this is also why I tend to like dogs with pricked ears. I like being able to read the range of expressions through their ears. It's especially cute when they fold their ears flat in their extremely-happy-greeting-face, like when I just get back home and open the door.
