My B boy flunked out of puppy kindergarten twice! LOL! My favorite thing was having him snuggling up next to me on the couch. If I'd move over, he'd immediately scoot over. He HAD to be touching me! He also loved lying across the top of the couch, next to the window. The only time my B liked to be on the floor was if there was a space heater or fireplace there!

Need to rehome my male basenji. He is nine months old, neutered, up to date on all shots, and microchipped. I would provide all of his toys, crate, leash, etc. I would recommend him to be the only dog in the household. There will be a rehoming fee (to be discussed.)
Serious inquiries only.
I strongly believe that my basenji was extremely intuitive. My brother and his wife initially got him after they got married. I "inherited" him when he was 5 1/2. He "knew" about 2 miles before we got to my brother's house that we were almost there. (An 85 mile trip!) We also credit him with "diagnosing" my brother's colon cancer. Fortunately, it was caught early. He also used to lay his head on the side of my abdomen, where I had a malignant melanoma. After I had it removed, he didn't do that anymore. They certainly are amazing dogs!
RIP, my dear, sweet Senji! My brother came over today and we took him to the Banfield Animal Hospital at Petsmart. They were open today. It was a good time, because they weren't too busy, being the 4th of July and all. Senji seemed to know that it was time too. The vet was very nice and gentle, and everything went very quickly. He was 16 1/2 years old. He's had a good life, and I didn't want him to suffer. With his previous liver disease, the vet felt that he was probably full of lung cancer too. He was having a lot of difficulty breathing. She said that we did the right thing, and that he probably wouldn't have died a peaceful "natural" death. We'll miss him dearly! The house will feel so empty without him. I'm sure that many of you know how it feels. Thank you for all your kindness and prayers!
He actually ate today! He had some pasta with meat sauce. And he was actually interested in a piece of one of his doggie treats. He just finished grooming himself a little. That's a good sign, right? I'm wondering if he might've gotten stung in his mouth by a bee. We'll have to see if he perks up some more, or if this is his last hurrah.
Senji is still alive. My brother and his family stopped over Sunday night to say their goodbyes. He's still drinking water, but only ate about 2 little bites of fish yesterday. He ate 2 little bites of chicken the day before. He can still jump up on the couch. All he wants to do is go outside and lay on the pad on the patio. It's been in the 90's all week. I try not to let him stay out there more than a few minutes at a time. Not sure how much longer he can live like this. He's skin and bones practically. The pet hospital at Petsmart is open on the 4th of July, if he needs it. I've been advised by several people not to go to the local emergency pet hospital. My brother's wife and kids don't want him to be "put down." They want him to die a "natural" death. They don't know what we're going through. My mom is especially stressed out, watching him waste away.
