Same here bcorr92. Toby is a very beautiful dog. Here in Australia we can't have pets in cabins, but I have seen rather large cat crates in the cabins in both Germany and Russia when flying there. Best of luck and I hope things turn out well for Toby.

@zande
Hi Zande, Pippi is already listed on your database. And I did send you a pic, but I didn't get around to sending you the photos of parents as requested.

Not sure why people have so much trouble. Just make the image a small size, do the normal <browse file> then upload.

Most iPhone and camera images have file sizes around 3000px. You need to go into your photo software (Adobe, Affinity, etc) and reduce the file size to around 200px or 300px at most. I post mine at about 200px.

The left hand box reads the upload in html code but the actual post will show the correct image. Remember, keep the file size small.

Please do this Chenke so that we can see your adorable pooch, Teki.

Yes, my girl is aggressive to many dogs. She seems to pick and choose who she likes and who she doesn't. There have been previous posts here about Basenji aggressiveness - see if you can scroll through and read them. My girl started getting aggressive from age three onward. We just have a firm leash, and don't stop too often to meet and greet. Like many other dog types if we let her off the leash at the dog beach she's not aggressive at all. We don't have squirrels in Australia, but my girl sure does love hunting ducks and parrots. Go figure!!

Yes, same with our Pippi, however it's the legs and feet in our case, not so much the head. I think I have the cleanest feet this side of the stump. She licks them until they're sparkling.

Yummmm CrazyDaisy, Im coming over to your place for dinner. Sounds delicious.

I don't feed my B any grains (nor myself for that matter). She chews grass sometimes when we go walking, self-medicating I guess. But that's the nearest she gets to grains!!

@pazgawrych Why would you boil the chicken? I just give chicken to my girl raw. She'll do anything for chicken, even behave...sometimes! 🙄

Sounds like folks on here have a good mix of fresh and product food and our little basenji community are eating rather well it seems. Just remember that supplements and vitamins in dog food (and human food for that matter) are synthetic human-made chemicals developed to simulate real supplements and vitamins - and basenji's have sensitive stomaches at the best of times (well my girl certainly does) - there's always plenty of the good stuff in fresh raw food for animals.

Best to do the research and see what fits your time and budget. I don't use any manufactured or canned food, only raw fresh and organic meat. Whatever I get from the butchers Pippi gets some too. Her favourite is chicken and duck, but she also gets a lot of offal, red meat and kangaroo. She also likes trout heads, chicken wings and prawn heads (with the sharp bits removed of course!) Manufactured and processed food is very bad for humans and very bad for animals and you'll pay for it later on with overweight animals and medical problems. If you go looking, you'll find this way of eating can be very inexpensive. She also doesn't get three meals a day, sometimes even one. We're trying to be as close to nature as we can here! That's how it's done in our house and when we walk we often get comments about how in peak condition she is and how glossy her coat.

Many breeders on this forum would disagree with our choice, and they'll say that kibble has the best supplements for your animal, but really, kibble is nothing more than grain and rubbish sprayed with flavourings and colours that are highly addictive. It took us two weeks to wean our rescue cat off kibble - and to even try a small piece of fresh meat. No thanks, we don't do kibble here! We have one very happy and very healthy pooch! and cat! 🐱
