Rosey will be 9 in January. Someone on a canine Cushing's forum posted about knowing or having basenjis that lived for 17 and 18 years. I could only be so lucky if Rosey could live close to that long, especially with Cushings. My past non-basenji dogs each made it to 12.
Who has/had the oldest basenji here?
Steepen is my 15 year old cat, recently diagnosed with FIV (feline AIDS):(
I have had him for 10 years, prior to that he lived in an animal hospital for a year where I had previously worked until the AHT finally wore me down to take him home. He is a great cat, quite dog-like, actually. Unfortunately, he has lost half his weight as his health declines.
Trevor is a 3-4 year old Boston terrier that we adopted from the local pound one year ago. He is a great dog, my son loves him. He likes to rough house with my son and play tug-o'-war. (Rosey doesn't really play). He is friendly to all and is submissive-polar opposite from Rosey.
I'm new, so forgive me if this thread has come up recently. I love to hear what nicknames your dogs have.
Rosey's registered name is Kazor's Savannah Wildrose. I gave my then 4-yr old son the choice of calling her Savannah or Rosey. He chose Rosey, go figure.
Some of her nicknames include:
Fat Pig ( yeah, not nice, I know-my son calls her this because Cushings has given her a potbelly and he likes to make fun of her.)
How 'bout your b's?
OMG! Too much!! I love her singing! And I esp love the pic with Lucy holding the spoon in her mouth! Looks like she luvs the camera.
My Rosey is the only basenji I know, I actually have never heard a b howl before, didn't even know they could. All Rosey vocalizes are whines and I guess a kind of yodel(?)-I call it a "yawn" cause that's what it looks like to me.
