Hi Becca. I'm wanting to change foods too. For years I have fed my 2 basenjis on my local butchers meat. But it's mainly offal. And that's worrying me after reading too much offal isn't healthy. I mix with mixed vegs and they love.

Hi, we have 2 basenji boys. Eldest never poos in garden. Except emergencies..... Our 2nd did poo for a year or two at first. But suddenly realised his brother doesn't. So.... Now he won't.. So walks it is. They go on morning walk. 7am ish. And ask#, around 4.30 for another. I can set my watch by second poop... 😂

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm thank you for your reply. the dog we have is 22months so will be just over 2 yrs when puppy arrives.he is the kindest dog you will ever meet, so gentle and loving. He has been in contact with puppies from the last litter and gets on realy well. my breeder does take care to match personalities. the only thing with trials is that you get stuck in the ahhhhhh factor and fall in love lol…

thank you for the prompt reply tanza… i love the quote " it works till it doesnt" magic... i shall use that one myself..lol

wingco is my second dog,( first one passed on year ago.) and have never had a female... i do worry about mistakes but......think it will be worth it. i have to decide as the `mother is in season now.. just afraid of upsetting the apple cart realy as our boy is so very perfect and gives us no trouble at all. no chewing even lol.he is gentle and the thought of them living seperate lives does not appeal at all. as i said i want free running dogs, as although i do show, i want pets firstly..

Rule of thumb is always male/female. As they say, with two of the same sex, it works till it doesn't

my boy also sleeps under the duvet….....and on top when he gets too hot. nice in winter but a pain in summer...lol..
our boy hasnt got the knack yet of finding his way back down under the covers after his spell on top.....he paws me, and grunts quietly i lift the covers ,say, IN and in he crawls funny for a while but the continual pawing does wake us alot...............but, he`s worth it.
