No dog mopes like a Basenji.
The huffy little sighs, the flump and flop against you to indicate sorrow, distress and the need for a belly rub...the martyred looks after you've given them a bath.
No, Basenjis have mastered the art of moping.
Denny will mope when he doesn't want to get out of bed.
He will mope after he has been out for a long walk and hasn't caught a single squirrel.
He will mope for no reason other than you are not paying attention to him.
Naturally, you can't let this sweet-faced little thing mope, so you have to give kisses, belly rubs, snuggles and treats. This leads to a condition known as codependency. And yet, I'm not ready to call "Intervention" just yet...
