Arrival Story: My husband and I were recently married and decided that we would love a dog. I had never owned a dog before. I did my researched and we went to many dog shows to check out breeds. When I saw the basenji I fell in loved with their look; their size; their eyes; their beauty. We talked to a lot of breeders at the shows and did the research; however, nothing prepared me for the Basenji. Talker was 6 months old when we got him from his breeder. It was love at first sight. We brought him home and endured the next few years with him. Although the next few years were "ruff" we loved him so much and loved spending every moment with him. He became so much a part of our life. We wouldn't change a thing.
Friday Show and Tell March 7
Talker: First I want to give a shout out to our Pal Patan who is back showing us that nothing is getting him down. You are the coolest and the best looking pup in shades!
My Tell is that I had my senior wellness exam on Monday and although I passed the initial go thru (I'm still waiting for the blood test results) with the vet, mom told the vet that my hearing is almost loss or completely loss. Hard to say right now. Mom has noticed for about four weeks now that I seem to not be hearing very well.
Mom and dad would walk thru the front door and I would be right there because I hear their car....but now....I don't hear them coming in. Last night my dad walked right into the house talking and saying my name. I was on the couch just staring at mom and not hearing a thing. It wasn't until he touched me right next to me that I saw him. So mom says that they will make sure not to startle me or sneak up on me. Thanks mom.
So the new dynamic duel on the block is Patan and me! We will have super duper senses. Patan will be able to Hear better and I will be able to See better and together we will join forces. Are senses will be so keen that we will be the Super Paws of Justice of Sight and Sound!!!
*Talker and Patan put their paws together for justice!*
Happy Fridays Puppers!!!!
Does any pup have some great plans for this weekend. We're expecting really nice weather over the weekend so I'm hoping for some sunbathing and good walks.
Did I mention that the cleaners found my winter coat??? Yeah they did. They lost it last winter and all my spots were showing.
Mom doesn't know why but for a long while my fur was looking bad. I had patches of sparse fur here and there--like on my thighs and stomach area. Once the vet thought she had already shaved me for my dental appointment and lump removals. But she didn't. My fur just looked bad. Mom thought for sure it was my thyroid but every test came up with only a very slight elevation of my thyroid and it wasn't enough to put me on medication.
I don't know but I think I was seriously stressed out last year with the passing of banners and my loneliness of being home alone while mom and dad was at work. Anyways, it seems like for the last few months, my fur has really gotten better and its filling out and you can hardly see my summer spots!
Now my mom is running her hands through my neck coat and she likes it and so do I. I like getting massages from mom.
So what do you all have planned for the weekend????
tonight on our walk, we went up the hilll towards the school AND THE GATE WAS OPEN!!!! Mom got me inside the playground and she set me loose and I ran and ran and ran and ran!!! I went around in circles in the MOONLIGHT!!! Mom was so happy and so was I!!! I ran under a Full Moon!
Mom has been feeling really rocky lately and two people at her work today told her that she looked like she needed stability and her other friend said that she had a unsettling vibe to her.
So mom found joy and excitement when we got into the school yard and she got to see me run and jump up on her! Under the moonlight...the serious moonlight!!!
We're getting ready to watch Survivor in honor of banners! She and mom loved that show!!!
