Arrival Story: We had been reading up on Basenjis but had never met one before so we went to a breeder to meet her dogs. It so happened that she had 2 litters totaling 12 puppies. There is typically a waiting list for Basenji puppies so we did not go expecting to get one. As it turned out there were still puppies available! We knew we wanted a female and I fell in love with the brindle coloring. I had my eye on Keyah in particular. Then, out of the blue, 11 puppies and one mom went into their dog house to sleep leaving us alone in the run with Keyah and her mom who was sitting next to me. Keyah put on the most spectacular dance for us and we knew she was meant to be part of our family. Every day I feel blessed that she chose us.
(Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their diary the rules and their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!
-----------------------------My 7 Pawsome Facts-----------------------------
1. My favorite place in the whole world is under the covers in the bed.
2. I will drop anything for a belly rub.
3. Unlike Patan, I eat my food one bite at a time. I even take the time to chew it.
4. I love being in my crate; it's peaceful in there.
5. My favorite food is CHEESE!
6. I groom myself like a cat.
7. I'm pretty good at walking on my hind legs. I learned this so that I could see what was on the dinner table. (I am not allow to put my paws on the table.)
6. Max Mattias
Well, its that time of year again. A BIG holiday all about food. It is, of course, Patan's favorite. Unfortunately his big belly got us in trouble last year. I say US because Mom and Dad were not sure who the guilty one was and we both had to pay the price.
This year I will be keeping a very watchful eye, but I will need a good backup plan to prove my innocence should my original mission fail. I thought about wearing a T-shirt that says "He did it" with an arrow pointing to Patan. But what if he moves and the cat is standing in the arrow's path? That won't work.
If I didn't think I would get too lonely, I would just go on the lam for a month. Maybe I will search the internet for an x-ray machine and then the hoomans can x-ray all of us to see who ate their special dinner. Or a pet-polygraph?
I need to think of something quick because Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I swear the hooman's grocery list had "peroxide" written on it!!!
I posted this under Basenji Group but wanted to share the story with all of my friends too.
You wanna know what I did the other day?
(this is a true story)
My mom came home sick from work on Thursday and went right to bed. I knew it was my job to make her comfortable and warm her up so I curled up in a ball right next to her. My dad was in the other room and left the cordless phone next to us.
Well, time passed and I was starting to get a little hungry and there was no sign of dinner being prepared. (Its hard work to keep your sick mom comfortable and warm, I needed sustenance.)
*ring*ring (the phone rang)
My dad scurried for the phone in the other room.
The caller: *smack*smack*slurp*
Dad: "Hello...who is this?"
The caller: *slurp*smack*smack*
The caller: *smack*smack*
Dad: *smack*smack* (imitating the caller)
At this point my dad assumed it must be one of my mom's friends because HIS friends wouldn't make a prank call. So he walks out with the phone to hand it to my sleeping mom when he sees...
ME, with my paw pushing the intercom button smacking my lips into the mouth piece.
