We had our first two basenjis 18 years before they died, 18 glorious years with our two friends that allowed us to love and care for them. Are you ready to commit to the next 18 years with your loving basenji when your adult life hasnt even started yet? my advice to you is to wait until you are settled into an adult independent life style before you commit to the love of a basenji. 🙂

my basenji book from South Africa finally arrived, and i have to rave about it..It's called Call of the Marsh..a story of a young couple raising pet basenjis in the 1950s in Africa, written as a journal. I cant say enough for this wonderful loving and expressive book. 🙂

personally, i dont think a basenji is the breed for you under your circumstances. Unless the whole family, especially your mother, is ready to make the committment of raising a "difficult" breed it isnt a good idea. how about a nice yellow lab, or one of those tiny breeds, i bet your mom would like having one of those around. 🙂 good luck

we had a gated area for ours to play…when they got too excited and started that nipping we just stepped over the gate and turned our back on them. Similar to a "time out". 🙂 They both outgrew that nipping with time.

Have any of you read "Candle" by Sally Ann SMith? what a sweet story, will give you a lump in your throat…my husband ordered Call of the Marsh by Jill Wylie, a copy coming from South Africa. can hardly wait to read it.

Our vet had Fela on shorter walks after he was neutered also. Something about possibly opening the wound. Also no jumping up, like on the sofa or bed, something like that. 🙂 btw Merry Baroooooooochristmas.

Do any of you have a B that loves to smell eyes? all four of the ones we have had go directly to the eyes of a new person…hard if they have glasses on. i wonder why they do that. 🙂

This whole issue is so interesting….Pure bred dogs vs mixed breed muts. THis is the first time i have ever heard of anybody asking for a purebred dog from a breeder to sire pups of a mixed breed female mutt. 🙂 thinking back to my childhood, a hundred and fifty years ago, to when most ppl had mutts and only rich people had purebred dogs. heh i would love to see a picture of this basenji who was running with a wild pack eating spicey chicken wings. heh

I think all you folks who adopt older basenjis with unknown histories are the kindnest most courageous people in the whole world. Thanks to all of you. :)))))))
