I didn't know where else to post this. It is the funniest thing I have heard in forever.
A good friend of mine who knows we just got a Basenji sent this to me, enjoy
"Last night I went to Costco to buy a bag of food for my neighbor’s dog, (my neighbor is sick at home) Already in line, a woman behind me asked me if I had a dog.
I stared at her (those who know me will imagine my gaze) ...but then why would I be buying dog food...right? So, on impulse I told her no, that I didn’t have a dog, that I was starting the dog food diet again, and that I probably shouldn't because I ended up in the hospital the last time, but I ended up 15 pounds less! I told her that it was the perfect diet and that all you had to do is carry the kibbles in your pocket and eat one or two every time you feel hungry (I have to mention that practically everyone in line was interested in my story).
Frightened, the woman asks me if I ended up in the hospital because the dog food had poisoned me. I answered...of course not! I was admitted because I started barking, chasing a cat and got hit by a truck"
@tjoseph91Hey Todd, welcome. This is a great place to get some really fantastic help. We got our little guy a week before the shutdown here in Oregon and it has been wonderful to spend most of the day with my Zaki. We have really bonded. He was 12 weeks when we got him and I have had a change to teach him to sit, stay, come and do a great deal of leash training. We had him house broken in a few days (the beauty of nothing to do but watch you B-dog all day long) and we have only had one accident. Mine is very quiet and he knows to sit by the sliding door when he needs to go but if we don't know he is there, well thats when we had the accident. Have fun with your new best friend.
@tuts Actually, I am very adept at the skill of reading and I did and the package did not say anything about "how many per day" It only said to feed your dog as a treat and to be used as a training aid. Maybe you can only read in French, because the package did have instructions in French as well, and you know what they say about the French. Sorry if my reply was too long
Broke my toe the other day (still think like a 20yo) and walking him has been very difficult. So, my son took him out yesterday for a long walk which did him a world of good (Zaki not Matthew) anyway he took this photo of our B-boy in the back yard after the walk.
@zande I like the "trade" idea I will incorporate that one for sure. As far as "no" is concerned, I know he understands what I am telling him, because of the 'look' he gives me. Its almost like he is saying "make me" but sometimes he does get the message and stop what ever he is chewing-tearing-digging etc on.
