I forgot about this forum for a while… Yes, that was probably mine, my parents live in Bedford and my dad would take her to the baseball fields when I lived with them for a bit back in '08. I actually left her there at xmas so I could focus on finishing up my thesis work - and my dad is driving to Toronto (where I go to school) from NS tomorrow to bring her back. I havent seen her in 3 months, so I am looking forward to the reaction. Of course my dad will be devastated to leave her , he adores her. I keep trying to get him to get his own but he says he only loves Shera, haha.
There were a couple other basenjis at that field, I think there is a breeder in sackville who would bring hers every so often. Now that I think of it, my dad may have mentioned meeting another B recently, maybe it was yours.
Anyways, take care. I am going to enjoy my last night of freedom before shera comes home and takes over everything.
my girl is so different.. I have to work to keep weight on her.. She is eating about a 3/4 of a natural canned food plus a bit of dry a day. ppl still tell me she is skinny, so then I let them hold her leash for about a min before their jaws drop at her strength… must be all the mountain climbing.. cause she pulls like an Ox.
My girl Rio is like this. She is all muscle, high metabolism. We call her "super model thin". She eats plenty. She gets 1/2-3/4 of a can of wet food plus 1/2 a cup of dry. In the spring when she is racing, she eats a full can plus dry. This is why she loves her coats, she has no extra padding to keep her warm.
the first night i had tayda she slept on the bed with me. i got up in the morning and got in the shower and closed the door to the bathroom. came out and she had peed on my bed. guess she was not happy i left her in the room. from then on she came in the bathroom and laid on the rug while i showered.
now lenny and tayda both wait patiently on the bathroom rug while i shower now.
