No i'm not insane

Hi,
new to this forum. can't believe that i just found it. I have 3 basenjis all red and white. My first is Gracie and she will be six in May. as you all know they can be addictive so we got another basenji this time a boy Jimmie 6 months after we got Gracie he is 5 and we all lived a happy and harmonious life. no too much destruction, no escaping no trouble what so ever… they have their 500's every night. what could possible go wrong... enter basenji #3 Jasper a rambunctious male he was 4 months old when we got him from our breeder..... gone was the peace and quiet. i'm not sure the couch saw him coming and quickly surrendered its stuffing...fast forward to today.. the funiture has been replaced sure it has come corners roughed up from Jasper all 3 get along.. and life is good. There is no tiptoeing through life when you own a basenji or 3 for that matter. I live in Northern calif and even though my dogs are not rescues i get together with the BRAT dogs for a monthly get together and let the hounds loose...

We welcome you and your gang to the forum. Where in N CA are you?

LOL - welcome. Please post pics - we love them here.

Well, you might be insane…I have 3 as well and sometime I think I might be insane too! 😃 My b pack is made up of Ruby (r/w - 5yrs), Brando (r/w - 5yrs) - 1 month difference between Ruby & Brando, and Aaliyah the juvenile delinquent (brindle/white - 17mos.). Things seemed so calm with only 2 basenjis in the house - b500 only a few times a day - oh the good old days ha, ha. 😃 No furniture eaters (so far) in my house though - just laptop power adapter eaters :rolleyes:. Your Jasper and my Aaliyah sound very similar - not in a good way, lol!

The really insane part is I might want to add a 4th!

Welcome to the Forum from the UK. Yes, we are insane here as well!!!

Hello to another northern Californian! They look like a wonderful trio from your tiny, tiny profile pic. 🙂

Hi and welcome from yet another No. Californian…. If interested we would love to have you come and join us on June 6th for the Basenji Club of Northern California puppy match, club meeting, pot luck lunch, and lure coursing. Will be a fun day for Basenjis and their people.

A big welcome to you, Jasper, Jimmie and Gracie. Glad to have you here with us.

My breeder is Ann Birk out of kansas. and that sounds like fun.. it it in the Pleasanton area? that's not too far… I would like to check out coursing for Jasper it sounds like that may up his alley.. The other two are couch potatos.. Jimmie was recently diagnosed with fanconi's and is responding well to treatment following the Gonto potocol....:o

Sorry to hear about Jimmie with Fanconi, glad to hear that he is doing well on the protocol. You should think about getting the other 2 DNA tested for Fanconi so that you know their status for the future. You can order the cheek swab test at www.offa.org (go to the link that is for DNA tests) and also by entering them on the CPP site, you can become part of the Basenji community tracking genetic concerns in the breed. We have had a DNA test for Fanconi since 2007 and all breeders should be testing before breeding so that we never have to produce another Basenji with Fanconi.

The event is in Livermore and more information can be found at www.norcalbasenjis.org Hope to see you there.

Oh well, you probably needed a new sofa anyway. I also have 3 badsenjis. Digital the brindlewonderkid is now 13, Jet the tri-ing is 12, and Zest the superstar in training is 3 (she's a r/w, the others you should be able to figure out). We also have Pearl-petual Motion, the malinois (malinut).

Welcome to our forum - it's a nice place.

Welcome! We have 3 too, and they get along great, all are couch 'taters too at 14, 12 and 10. Looking forward to photos of yours. Glad your boy is doing well on the protocol!

Hey 3basenjis! Welcome to the Forum and I am in the Sacramento area as well with 2 b's - one of them is on the Fanconi Protocol too! If you're interested could meet up and have a playdate sometime! Other Sacramentoers (Sacramentoees?) are welcome also!

Other Sacramentans. I live in Woodland, so not too far from Sacramento.

I am active in racing and coursing my dogs and if you are interested in getting started let me know and I can let you know what events I will be attending.

Sacramentans. There you go.

Hey Ivoss - I work in Woodland!

Cool! Where in Sacramento do you live? Natomas?
