Picture this.. (see attached pic before reading the Christmas Beast story. Isn't he precious????)
Christmas Day…..Dry weather in South King County Washington, Roast Beast on the BBQ awaiting carving, Au Jus & rolls warming in the kitchen for French Dips, Christmas birds chirping in the yard, 2 Basenjis wearing jingle bells hopping, jumping & digging in the yard, happiness & Holiday joy abound
Cue "Jaws" music...dun dun dun dun dun.....dun dun dun dun....
Husband rushing in the back door: "Well, Christmas is ruined!!!! The worst thing that could've happened did!!!!!"
"What the heck?", I ask innocently, knowing it has something to do with a basenji~!!!!! DUH!!!!!
"The little $$##^%$$%^% somehow grabbed the roast off the BBQ then had the AUDACITY to growl at me when I went to grab it back!!!!" Just a gnaw or 2 off it and some grass from the lawn, not a total loss.
Now, the basenji in reference is 20lbs soaking wet and is as scrawny as a rat! (see attached pic) Of course, it's not the "Angel" basenji that is too lazy to think about jumping up to grab food. Are you kidding? If you are patient, it comes to you!!!!!!
The mental picture of him working, hopping, working to get that roast is priceless! I checked his paws and he must've waited for the BBQ to cool down.
Who the heck says this breed isn't smart???? Poor little baby boy rescue....
Is that the face of a "roast beast robber"?
Love my baby BRAT Hunter to death! Merry Christmas!!!!
"and the Grinch himself, carved the first piece of Roast Beast....."
