As Secretary I'm pleased to let everyone know that the Basenji Owners and Breeders Association website is back up and running at our new domain www.basenjiownersandbreeders.org. Please check your bookmarks and links as the old site has been hijacked and has been unaccessible for a while.

I know what you mean Patty; but I always made sure to do this and it didn't make any difference. It's not every dog I've had that could do this; most can't but once they figure it out the first time they always seem to do it again.

I rarely post on this forum these days but if there is one topic that could get me to do so this is it!

I have had several Basenjis that could do this, with the trigger clip that's pretty much universal these days. How they do it I don't know. Bryn had to gyrate a bit to do it but Ezri just seems to shake herself and it's off. I will never trust trigger clips again (and I have high quality bridle leather leads with heavyweight brass clips, not cheap nylon and nickel ones). All my dogs now wear leads with a buckle fastening such as are made for Greyhounds (mine are Whippet sized). They have their disadvantages; there is no swivel so they twist up, and they are very fiddly to fasten when getting eager Bs out of the car. For this I use their old trigger leads with a safety strap of the sort that come with Haltis, fastened to the lead at one end and clipped to the collar ring the other way around to the main clip, so they can't shake them both off at the same time.

They're nice looking pups.

I'd just like to confirm what the previous posters have said about Fanconi testing. The parents have not been tested, and the sire's litter sister is a carrier.
I did advise this breeder to have her pups tested before they were homed, and gave her all the information to do so, which clearly fell on deaf ears. I abandoned my own breeding plans this spring as my bitch's DNA results had not come in, even though I expected her to be clear as she is from a clear/clear breeding. (and yes, she and her cousin are both clear).

Two the same age will be hard work. Try to make sure that they don't become too dependent on each other to relate properly to you.

Congratulations on the new baby. (My Bryn is her great-grandfather).

If it comes this week, and if it takes 2 weeks for mine, it might just be in time! My own fault, I should have known better than to assume a Basenji would go along with my planning!

Thanks Scott! I'll have to chill while I'm waiting for the swabs and the results; time is not on my side. Trust Basenjis to refuse to go along with one's plans.
Have fun swabbing 9 puppies!

For those on this side who have used the swab kit (I have previously sent blood) how long from the order date did they take to arrive? I ordered them last Sunday (17th) and it has now become somewhat urgent.

I must admit I can happily give the shopping a miss; I don't usually go much outside Hall 5. I don't like all the jostling and crowding.

Yes, I'm entered; taking the two black 'uns. Thank goodness we aren't first in!
