    Went to the dog park and took some pics. Thought I'd share...

    Great shot. My wife was bugging me for a Basenji the other day - if she saw this pic I'd be doomed.

    Stazy... be careful about the dog sleeping with you... when you get another lady friend and you guys start uhh... exercising... the dog might get very confused and jealous.

    Funny you should mention that. He was sleeping with me until just last week when my cousin described exactly what you just said. He got married this summer and his dog is not adjusting well.

    Thanks, but no.

    Pics look great. I've always thought Basenjis look best in the tall grasses. Where in Canada is this?

    Edmonton.

    The pictures were taken at a dog park that's just over 400 acres. It's completely isolated from the city and there's a river that loops around it. Nice place.

    Haha I know. It kills me to say this but I'll probably have to buy him a jacket or something.

    Furry steeze!


    SField is right about the bed. I've never been a fan of dog's sleeping in the bed anways. A) It makes the bed smell all "doggy", and b) if you do try and boan the poor guy is looking at you like you just foreclosed on his house.

    Great shot.

    +1, that's an awesome picture.

    I encountered my first serious fight between two dogs this weekend. Didn't see it start but a Black Lab* got a hold of a smaller dog's ear and wouldn't let go, despite one guy holding his rear legs off the ground, another choking him, and his owner repeatedly punching him in the face (I think she may have broken a few fingers). When he was finally pried loose he redirected and bit her in the knee; two other guys ended up with bloody hands and the smaller dog was off to the vet for stitches in his ear (still attached, thankfully). Scary stuff; wish I'd had a break stick with me - next time I will.

    *According to the SPCA; he had just been rescued a few months ago. Not sure I'd want to be the Cairn Terrier that lives with him.

    Does anyone have experience with Otterhounds? My parents are thinking about getting a puppy from some friends with a litter.

    If you see them again tell them to watch their wounds closely for infection.
    Torn ears are very bloody but not serious.

    It's hard to stay calm, but the best thing to do is pull both dogs apart until there's strong tension then work something - a stick, belt buckle - into the mouth of the dog biting. When he breaks pull hard on the collar to avoid the rebite.

    Careful with flashing a "breaking sick". In some places it would be considered dog fighting paraphernalia.

    Cool breed. Very rare, I've only seen two. Stronger than they look and you have to make sure you want a water breed and all the coat issues that come along with one.

    I'll be sure to mention it if I see them again. Yes, I'm aware of the perception re: break sticks. However, in the event that I need one I'd rather have the right tool for the job than to have to go looking around for a stick. Hopefully something like this wouldn't arouse too much suspicion. I'll keep it out of sight. Edit - This guy uses a tent stake. Seems like a good solution.

    That looks like a wooden peg with a rope through it. What's so special about it?

    It works much the same way as the tent peg. Work it into the dog's mouth behind the canines and twist it to apply pressure on the dog's gums. He will release.

    The SAS (British Special Forces) parachute into combat with German Shepherds strapped to their chest. That's right, they parachute into combat strapped to a fucking dog. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/no...an-afghanistan Apparently, dog's don't register height. Who knew?

    "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) said: "Dogs are not tools or "innovations" and are not ours to use and toss away like empty ammunition shells.""

    Does PETA believe that dogs were domesticated so they could sit in people's laps?

    Great shot. My wife was bugging me for a Basenji the other day - if she saw this pic I'd be doomed.

    My GF has a super-cool rescue mutt that I'm certain is probably half black & white Basenji. It's a little smaller and slimmer than a pure-bred but everything else is pretty much dead on - except the yodel bark or whatever it is.

    She also just got an affenpinscher puppy. Not a breed that I'd ever heard of and was skeptical of a toy breed - but he is quite a charmer and seems to be working out with the other dog just fine. Surprisingly chill for a tiny dog and super cute. He looks like a little black ewok. Not my photo but he looks similar to this:
