Where'd my coffee go?!

Sonny has taught the whole family never to put your coffee cup down in basenji territory….it wont be a full cup when you get back. :eek:..but every once in a while we all make a mistake.....and guess who's right there to take advantage!! 😉

OMG - basenji + coffee????

In this house, ****atoos and coffee - they absolutely love it. They shove their beaks right down into the mug, scoop some up in their bottom beak, and then let it drip down their gullets!

That Sonny boy having his cup of Java. 😃
Ringo, a rw Basenji I had 92-07 loved anything with a strong smell like coffee. One time I ground some beans and filled a sandwich bag up to take to work. I left it on the dresser and went in the bathroom to brush my teeth. I heard this wrestling sound and thought "what the heck is that"? When I looked in the bedroom he had taken the bag, ripped it open and rolled around on it and it was all over the bed and him. It was too funny to get mad about! Once in a while I would give him 1 bean and he would take it in the living room drop it and roll around on it like a cat on catnip then eat it. 😃

Otis loved stealing coffee too..he would get up on the table if you happened to walk away for a split second.

Love the picture. Wouldn't it be awful if he took a drink but you didn't see him 😃
This happened to my family years ago. My parents had crisps,nuts etc out in little dishes for christmas visitors and unbeknown to any of us, our Pappilon, Bambi had been helping herself. 😮

I would have never thought a Basenji would love Coffee. I'm usually guarding a glass of Scotch or Wine when it comes to my B. They are curious little devils sometimes.

First Basenji's

Both my dogs love the smell of my rancid coffee breath in the morning (it's touching, in a way – they'll put up with me in my stinkiest state!). We're quite paranoid about keeping the real stuff away from them though. Bowdu had an incident as a 9-month-old pup where he took about two bites worth of fresh coffee grounds and ended up at the emergency vet for two nights. NEVER AGAIN. It's potent and potentially lethal stuff for dogs...

A lovely picture!

Mine regularly sample any drinks left within their reach!

LOL on the treats and dogs. Reminds me of a rather long story but here goes.

My friend Janice was visiting friends in Tx. Now at that time in her life, Janice was NOT an animal person in any form. (she now is a certified nut job living with 4 horses, 2 dogs and 4 cats) However, she got up for breakfast and here was the cat standing on the counter licking the butter. Janice said her friend must have seen her horrified expression and she said: Janice, does that bother you?

Janice said of course it did. (Meaning unsanitary!)

Her friend said: Me too. She doesn't need to be eating all that fat.

So anyway, years later Janice said it was finally really funny to her but at the time she wouldn't eat anything the people prepared.

I would draw the line at sharing butter, but I don't think I'd throw out the nuts.

I love these kind of pictures.. we have the funniest dogs on the planet! 🙂

:D:D:D That is hilarious. I think true animal people are quite tolerant of such things. I'd keep the butter and fight you for the nuts. 🙂

aw… suki has her mouth in anything i'm drinking. i have to watch everything like a stingy curmudgeon... but better that than a caffeinated basenji!

:D:D:D love it, thanks for the giggle Debra

My fella has never cared one 'lick' for any drinks on the coffee table, from water to coffee to pop to adult beverages. What he likes to do is lick the condensation off of the sides of cold drink glasses/cups. Maybe he likes the cold on his tongue?
