My female B has had Giardia twice. Both times she showed no symptoms and they found it while testing her yearly fecal sample. She was put on antibiotics and is fine. I take both my Bs to the river every weekend so assuming that's where she's getting it. I try not to let her drink any standing water but it could be anything.

Happy 6th birfday Hunter
Happy 6th birfday to my little BRAT boy, Hunter.
oh boy, he's a rescue for a reason.
Precious is the best word to describe him.
He keeps me on my toes!!!!
He so wants to be BFF's with my girl, Bandit, but she just tolerates him.
Cheeseburgers are in order tonight!!!!!
RE: Going to attempt this a second time..
My girl, Bandit, has a note in her file that she can't be awake in a cage or she FREAKS out. She will try to chew through the metal bars, half sedated, and they will take her out and someone has to sit with her on their lap until I come get her.
I am like you. I drop her off right before whatever, and they call me RIGHT when she shows signs of waking up so that no one has to be stuck up front with a sleepy basenji on their lap, trying to work!
She's never had to be crated, except as a tiny pup, hence the FREAK out session!!!!!
Happy 11th birfday Bandit
My baby girl turned 11 yesterday. Sorry I'm a day late in posting!!!!
I got her from a BYB when she was 8 weeks to the day.
She's grown in to a 30 lb ragamuffin who would loves to be outside in the rain, her favorite place is the Cedar river, she is STILL destructive indoors and I'm pretty sure that if she were human, she'd be the man in the relationship!!!!
I got her a Birthday fast food cheeseburger last night on my way home from work. I tore it into pieces. Gave a piece to Hunter, my BRAT boy, and a piece to Bandit. Hunter didn't even taste his chunk. Bandit looked at me and spit it on the floor!!!! She looked at me like "I know why you don't eat this stuff but, really, for my birthday!!!!!". She finally ate up, after Hunter offered to eat hers for her!!!
Love my girl and here's hoping to 5 more years together!
RE: Anyone have trouble not being able to sleep if the dogs aren't in bed with you?
It takes me a while to fall asleeep anyways, if I'm not in my bed. I call myself the meat in the basenji sandwich! We all have our assigned places in the bed.
RE: And now for the question we all ask ourselves…
It's to keep their naked tummies warm!!!!
