Many years ago, at a dog show i had three bitches in costume their costumes were cookies. An oreo, a chocolate chip and plain cookie. I was dressed as a carton of milk and wore a sign that said. Got milk, which was a famous commercial at the time. The girls did not care for costumes and .".." quit half way through the parade. Cookies all over the place . Funny memories none the less.
If you look very closely, there seems to be an eye witness. I suggest you question him/her very carefully. Do not fall for the phony excuse of “ I saw a burglar in here and he was carrying away your favorite pillow. I tried to grab it out of his hands and we had a terrible scuffle. He was strong and huge but I hung on, endangering my life to secure your property. I snatched and yanked and pulled and finally he released the pillow. Honest Mom that is what happened. “. These eye witnesses’ are not altogether truthful or honest. Same thing happened at our house and it is the same old story. The mystery remains unsolved.
This is going to be hard to decribe but worked for us. A very large stretchy sock. Slide it over her head and mark where her legs would go. Cut ,Just slits will do. Poke her legs through . Roll it back to a collar, fold it back to make a collar. Cut it off at about the third nipple and if you can make sense of what i just said you should be good to go. Needless to say, it is a 24/7 job. You could also use a light weight sweater sleeve to do the same job.
Forgot to mention to those folks whose basenjis catch and kill rabbits and squirrels . Or any wild prey for that matter. When they kill or seriously injure something. Fleas jump from victim to dog. In 30 yrs we have had only one instance of fleas. One girl killed a bunny in her yard. I removed corpse immediately as i saw it happen. Picked up bitch and she was loaded with fleas for the first time in her life. Thank goodness fleas show up on basenjis very obviously. She was not allowed in the house until hubby ran down to pet store and bought appropriate flea shampoo. She was bathed outside, dried outside and then sat on my lap upside down ..she thought it was for a belly rub.....i was looking for a stray flea that had escaped having a bath. Found nothing...they did not have time to lay eggs so we were comfortable that we had solved the problem.
Watching my three girls gang up on a possum in our chain link fenced yard. Lightening quick and totally coordinated. One would dash in, bite and dash out, second one would dash in and bite before the first one completed her attack, ,third one same thing going in for a bite just ,as the second one backed out. Eventually it played dead, basenjis said...”oh well “and i was able to collect them and get them in the house and go back outside and open the gate as a very wobbly possum stirred to life and was looking for a way to get out. They are fierce and fearless and fast. As a pack they are pretty deadly. The youngest was only 9 mo.old but seemed to know exactly what to do even tho none of them had ever had a confrontation with any thing.
I have recently read that there are a number of grasses and weed that have seeds that cling. Fox grass being one of them. Dogs snuffle and inhale seeds and they sometimes get stuck inside the nose and throat causing such symptoms. Make sure vet gives a close check of interior of nose. Can cause inflammation . Wish i could remember the article but this is all i recall.
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
