Thank you everyone that has shared a Basenji story. I know the Basenji babies could not go on in their bodies. But the loss is just so hard. Hearing about other Basenji's helps me through this process. I have been such a difficult situation, and hard to process. But will make it through knowing they are safe on the other side.
Dear Basenji Lovers, I have just lost two friends.. Two Basenji's one day after the another.
I am so heart broken. One was 15 years old, Roxie- she was blind and had medical problems. A rescue, that was wonderful. She passed on Monday. Then the very next day my 11 year Basenji - - boy Finn decided he wanted to join his girl friend. He started to bleed out into his tummy. Later on at the Emergency Vet a cancerous mass was found. It was time for him to go heaven. Two Basenji's in two days.. This story is so unreal. I miss them badly, like a couple that was had this very intimate connection.I truly miss you Roxie and Finn. Hug your Basenji's extra hard for me. I will never understanding why both had to leave me at the same time. It is always the living that has to deal with the loss of their Basenji babies. I know they are running free.
My Basenji, Finnegan.. When he was younger was like that.. He just needs more time hanging out with people. They are shy as you know. Sometimes confidence and they just don't know what to do in situations. They just panic.. I always have treats near and have it ready near the door. The new person can hand them out at dog level. Your doggie just take time, a rescue.. Heck it's scary for this breed.
