    More About Aj

    The other night, I was looking at You-Tube videos of Basenjis singing. AJ was fast asleep in the back, but he heard the yodeling and barooing and had to investigate. He jumped into my lap, looked all around my computer for the other dogs, cocked his head back and forth, then...

    Catch Me If You Can . . . Fool

    Our basenji Puppy

    He is 11 weeks old now and the past two nights (he sleeps in bed with my husband and I) he's starting to bite. Not the cute little puppy nibbles either. He lunges at us to bite. We try to redirect him by offering him a toy in and in a stern voice tell him no. It almost appeared...
