About me

crazy old woman who actually wants a reason to go for walks, hikes, and bike rides... to dote on a little one... and have a pal willing to jump in the car and go for a ride...

@shango-z You are doing a great job "raising" Shango! I was so impressed at the dog park the other day. Kudos!

@debradownsouth I can't imagine what they are gaining by doing it... I have to wonder if there isn't some way to block them.

I don't think you can delete your account because the posts and comments are all intertwined. But you can do two things to simulate a delete. Part one sets your screen persona on "invisible", no one will think you are available to chat. Part two eliminates the automated list from sending you anything behind the scenes. For all intents and purposes you will be gone, but any past questions will remain to retain the integrity of the site structure. Fair enough?

Part 1

  • Click on your circle icon in the upper right corner of the webpage,
  • Scroll down the dropdown navigation links,
  • Click on invisible (now noone can "see" you).


Part 2

  • Click on your circle icon in the upper right corner of the webpage (again),
  • Scroll down the dropdown navigation links,
  • Click on "settings"
  • Under Email , click on the frequency line where it says "subscribe to digest" and select "Off"
  • Under Notifications & Sounds, adjust each section to "None", or "Disabled" as appropriate.

@zande It's a spammer, just report and ignore.

Just curious... how do you know it's a spammer (aside from the weird formatting of question in title/answer in body of the post)?

@eeeefarm said in should I get a basenji?:

wait until the time is right, even if you really, really want a dog now

I agree... with everyone. Sometimes you just need to accept that (no matter how much you want a dog/car/kid/house) you aren't quite ready for it. I waited 5 years before I brought my Basenji home and it was probably the most adult thing I've ever done. I was still in recovery from a spinal injury and knew that I wouldn't be able to provide (her) the exercise she would want and require. Waiting made all the difference in the world. Whan I was finally ready, the most perfect little girl was ready for me.

Don't fret about it. You can read, research, consider all of your options, and really prepare yourself. (Don't look at puppy pictures online! You'll fall in love without even meeting the pup(s) and it will pull at your heartstrings.) Remind yourself that "one day you will have a Basenji", just not today.

@tanza @debradownsouth Exactly what I meant. Like a child, you cannot expect a pup to do something their body has not grown enough to do. It's been years since I've had a puppy in the house. "Bug" came to me at 18months, well past potty training. (Thank heavens!)

@lalmalbis I"m sorry to hear that you lost your Pogi and hope that your Mother is doing better than you expected.

@joseph0071 said in How long does it take to potty train a puppy.:

it takes 4-6 months for a pup to be potty prepared

Do you mean that it takes 4-6 monthes to train them, or that it's easier to train them when they are 4-6 monthes old?
