Dexen. Your language only shows your lack of understanding the english language. Please refrain from spilling filth on the board. It really isn't necessary. Nancy your response was also uncalled for. This person is asking for assistance. Needing only help in rethinking her expectations from her puppy. Indeed she seems to be comparing last dog to basenji. Anyone who really cares about basenjis , understands the new comer to be exasperated with a puppy. To suggest she lacks love is so out of line. What she lacks is understanding of our breed. There is more than sufficient nastiness in the world today without adding to it with vile language and accusations. I suggest both of you retire from the conversation and allow those who maybe able to help be heard
Good for you...keeping her close to you. Just an amusing moment about going thru security. Took him out of sherpa hubby carried him through...not the xray, just let them pat you down. One of the security guys came dashing over practically shouting. Is that a basenji....yep he is, 4 months old. Hubby replyed He said. I had one when i was nine years old and boy did i love that dog. He kind of gestured to our screener and we zipped right thru. As for taking him out of the sherpa, read the airline attachment to your ticket. They will tell you what you are allowed to do and not. There is a spray available at pet shops to calm puppy down. Just spray lightly in sherpa. I cant for the life f me r emember the name of it. Perhaps someone will drop a note here. Dont spray heavily or on puppy and once will do. Good luck
We used delta ..new jersey to detroit, sherpa bag. Was just great. On my lap the whole way...not allowed to take him out ANY where in airport. There was a potty station available for service dogs and pets, very small but useful. Sherpa allows you to see,pup at all times. I flew with my hand in side sherpa and had absolutely no problem. He slept most of the way.
Cinnamon honey graham crackers
After 5 basenjis now with number 6, question came up about cinnamon. Our have always been crazy about cinnamon honey graham crackers. You would think they were sirloin steak. The other day we found an article that said no cinnamon. Of course their intake was very minimal, but better safe than sorry. New guy also thinks they are very tasty treats. Any thoughts
Ring bone is nothing more than soup bone, not a knuckle. Leg bone with marrow in the center cut to about 2 inches long. When it has been chewed dry and empty, try smearing PB or cream cheese inside, not filling it up just a smear. Believe it or not they sell for about 4$ for six here in the Midwest. Oh well
It is one of very many weird sweet strange noises in your future. Our latest ,at 18 weeks is a baroo greeting made when holding a ring bone in his:mouth, not only strange sound but funny as can be watching him trying to say..great to have you home but i am not putting down my bony.
A pocket with pieces of her favorite treat. The minute he walks in the door,and every time she makes eye contect and/or allows him to touch her. Does she have a favorite toy, in case she is one of those who is not food motivated, same process. Dont worry about over feeding, just cut back on regular portion during this process.
