How We Met?

My mom was vacationing in Mexico when she met a basenji (from Canada) on the beach. She thought he was adorable. Upon returning home she saw that some basenji puppies were up for adoption (it WAS the right time of year=we're only born in the winter) She picked me-the brindled male runt. My mom had NO idea what she was in for...I destroyed thousands of dollars worth of things over our first few years together, but 14yrs later I know she doesn't regret a minute of our time together!

It's Working Benny !

You and all my other wonderful DC friends are helping me so much. I have not had another seizure since the 19th. I have been enjoying the days and being my old comical self. My mouth is better too, but I don't like that medicine, yuk ! I run to my little bed and lie down when I see mommy with that dispenser. She feels bad about seeing me like that, but she tells me that the medicine is helping my mouth to feel better, then I get a treat. Have a fun rest of the day. Love n' Licks, Fiona xx

Come visit me, Fiona the Fearless : Thank you friends for my DOTD win. I love you ! xx

HI Benny! Voted -:l:- VOTE DURANGO #217164 DOTM JUNE -:l:- Durango is a Australian Shepherd from TN he loved dog treats, running and being played with. Durango came to our house when we had our other dog Piper (Who passed away) and my dad didn’t want two dogs at once. We kept him for a little bit, while we looked for his owner (We knew he had one because he had stitches in him). We were unable To find his owner- so we had to the animal shelter because my dad would not Let us keep him. Today I wish I could have kept him, he was the best dog ever. I hope he can have the honor of winning DOTM, I am thankful for every vote. -:l:- VOTE DURANGO #217164 DOTM JUNE -:l:-

BENNY!

Hi Benny the Basenji, It's nice to meet you. It is so cool that we share the same name and nickname! We are long lost brothers. A long time ago my mom had a pooch named Leia (now an angel). She was either a Black Shepard or a Shepard / Lab mix. She did that trick too with the toilet paper! And mom called her Leia Lou. Mom still has books with Leia's mark on them (teeth marks that is). Mom loved her just the same. How did your mom pick your name? My mom just tried to be patient and see what name I seemed to be. My mom says you are sooo handsome! And she and I have never seen a Basenji puppy before. What great pictures you have. My mom didn't know anything about dachshunds when she found me but I gave her an education too! Before me, mom had only been owned by large dogs. Since I'm small, she thought I was a puppy but I was 5 or 6 years old. Silly mom... and that was just the beginning. My mom used to also be owned a Shiba Inu named Lakoda (now at the rainbow bridge). Like your mom she saw one and fell in love with her. Then a homeless one discovered my mom. People would ask her what breed he was and if he was a Basenji, the barkless dog. Mom said, "No, he barks." Do you bark Benny? I love to bark. If you don't bark, I can bark some for you. Happy to be your new buddy, Benjamin P.S. You are a saint to befriend kitties. I live with one but only steel his napping spot rather than share one with him.

Come visit me, Angel Thelma, Benjamin

Thanks

Day 29 of our DOTM Run Fun Dog Facts The origin of amputating a dog’s tail may go back to the Roman writer Lucius Columella’s (A.D. 4-70) assertion that tail docking prevented rabies.
