Hi Michelle,
Did you get in touch with Kelli to let her know about Lenny?
Sorry to hear you're having issues.
Rocky is doing great now, no more cancer.
Lenny as you know is Rocky's older brother.

Looks like he could have Avongara in him. There are many in NY and it is a possibility.

Hi

My Diva is a service dog and has been for 5 years now. She is very good at what she does and is my lifeline. I have trained her in a unique way because of her size. She blocks by jumping on me to put distance between a person that comes into my personal space. She also wakes me up from night terrors by climbing onto my chest. I'm in good paws with my faithful Diva by my side.
I'm also in the process of training my full African as an alternate,he is 3/4 of the way in his training.

It's normal, I even had a bitch that was bred on day 31 and she had a litter of five.

When was the last rabies vaccine ?
My two Avongaras both developed itchy rashes on there feet,legs three days after there rabies vaccine. There is a connection no matter what the vet says.
Look up the rabies challenge fund and read what it says.
They will be getting exemptions from now on.
These reactions can be seen many months and sometimes years after the vaccination.

Looks like basenji to me. Could have Avongara in her.
The Avongaras do look different, I have two and to look at them
they don't look like my domestics.
The Avongaras are some of the most sweetest of our basenjis.
After 41 years of breeding,showing,racing,etc I do think I know
basenji temperament.
At least that is my opinion .

One of my seniors,(16 +) has Cushings and with it the constant drinking,etc.
I buy the #4 size baby diapers and then have cloth doggie diapers to but over
them. She doesn't mind them and even lets me know when she needs to be
changed.
When my Joshua was alive he also wore diapers and he was find with it.

Hi Myles,
My experience with seizures was with one of mine who I got back after his owner passed away.
He had a brain tumor (not cancerous ),non operative due to its closeness to his optic nerve.
He was on phenobarbital but when he came and was fine for months,I put him on a homeopathic
remedy that worked for him and he never had another seizure ever again.
My experience with the keto diet has been with my Rocky who was diagnosed with a tumor in his
mouth,(fibrosarcoma). Diagnosed in May of 2017, he is now cancer free after my vet said he had 3
three months to live. They wanted to remove his jaw and I wouldn't allow it. I'm so glad that the
keto diet plus the 30 + supplements that he still is on has worked to keep my boy with me.

I believe that our dogs and also us can heal if given the chance . Mother nature knows best and
dogs where not meant to eat kibble. I believe that basenjis especially evolved to eat a nature diet.
Kibble doesn't exist in the jungles of Africa,the natives fed them a natural diet.

That being said, try the keto diet as you really can't go wrong. If you need help,just let me know or
go to "The Truth about pet cancer" on YouTube,there is also info on seizures.

I have always used DYNE for extra calories with my seniors if they stopped eating or if they just needed more weight. It tastes good to them and they will mostly just lick it up or you can add it to there water.
