Little hunters, aren't they? Rosey has caught several small birds, but unfortunately I was unable to save any of them by the time I could catch her.

Querk is a mighty handsome fella! He looks great for his age. Is that a touch of gray I see around his muzzle?

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:
Rosey-Pose
Rosey-Posey
Pretty Girl
Baby Girl
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?

We have a doggy door, so the dogs can access the fenced rear yard whenever they like. Sometimes they are running in and out 10 times a hour, but I don't mind!

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.

Rosey wanted to help decorate for Christmas.:eek:
This was the toy before she started her de-stuffing rampage…

from Rosey, Trevor the Boston, and me, too, of course!!
(I can not, for the life of me, get these two dogs to sit together and pose long enough to take a pic. Don't know how some of you do it!)

I crate my dogs when we travel. I just find it easier on all of us, and no hair all over the seats and carpet. Their little hairs are so hard to get out of the upholstery-it's like they stick in like little fish hooks.

Rosey has the basenji habit of finding little things around the house to chew up and eat. Little plastic army men, toilet paper, q-tips, cotton balls, you name it, etc. Never, in her 8 years, has she ever had a problem with obstructions, diarrhea, or vomiting. My Boston terrier gets diarrhea at the drop of a hat. Do most basenjis have cast iron stomachs, or have I (er, Rosey) just been fortunate so far??

Rosey's favorite and longest lasting chew toy is the Nylabone. She loves them. She also likes pressed rawhide, but she is able to break off slimy pieces, so I keep those to a bare minimum. Unfortunately, Rosey has no interest at all in kongs or other rubbery toys.

She's a pretty girl!

Rosey, too, sleeps in bed with me. She always sleeps under the covers, and will paw at the blankets until she can scoop under or I lift up the edge for her. For years she would sleep between my knees, and (luckily) for the past year or two she's moved off to the side of my king size bed. Once she finds her spot, she never moves. And Rosey never growls at me, but she will growl at the cat and Trevor the Boston if they tread too close to her. She loves to sleep, just like me!

Hi all!
I guess I'm several years late in joining, but, better late than never!
My name is Erika. I have a 12 year old son Ryan. We have Rosey (Kazor's Savannah Wildrose), our 8.5 year old red and white basenji; Trevor, a 3-4 year old Boston terrier; Steepen, a 15 year old cat with FIV; and some marine & pond fish. We live in Hemet, which is in Southern Calif.
We've had Rosey since she was just a lil' pup, from a breeder in Yorba Linda. This summer she was diagnosed with Cushing's disease, but has been doing fine so far <knocking on="" wood="">She also has degenerative disc disease, possible beginnings of Fanconi, hip dysplasia, and multiple lipomas. Believe it or not, Rosey's always been a healthy dog up to recently.
She is trustworthy in the house when we're not home, which is more than I can say about Trevor. She is a good family dog, and loves sleeping under the blankets every night with me!
Here's a couple pics from a recent gift exchange thru a BT Forum.</knocking>
