The best thing that yahoo did was putting the "BUZZ" button on there. My wife will get up to go do something and that is when our B's will start to get into trouble, I'll watch for a minute, laughing because I know that they know what their doing and they waited till she was gone. I'll hit that "BUZZ" button and they will scatter and my wife will come running and ask, "What were they doing this time?". I think it's real funny watching them steal her coffee, that's the last thing that 3 Basenji's need, CAFFEINE!!! LOL
This is my 3rd deployment to Iraq, and I can't tell you just how much I miss my B's… Of course I miss my family too but they don't baroo and meet me at the door when I walk in. This isn't about them anyway. So all I have is my Yahoo Messenger with the web cam and I watch my B's all the time. Sometimes I look and can see my boy just staring at the screen and I wonder if he can see me too. I call my wife's computer from time to time just to talk to my dogs, is that strange? I'll call them by name and they get excited and run around the house looking for me. I learned my lesson after my 1st deployment, if you've read my post "The Day I Got My Heart Broke", and try to let them hear my voice so I won't be a stranger when I get home.
Track Racing? I didn't know that was a sport for Basenji's. I had read somewhere, a long time ago, that the Basenji is the fastest breed of it's size rang, so I guess that would make sense to race them… just never heard it done. Are there any places in the central Texas area that I can go see some of these sports in action? I've tried looking online but nothing comes up. I would like to try teaching my pair Lure Coursing. Any training tips on that? What is a good age? And how old is too old?
