Winter Destruction

In the fall, we realized that our dogs were not getting enough exercise.
So we started walking them 4 times around the block in the morning.
When winter came, they would drag us home and they would not get enough exercise due to the cold weather.
One day we came home and found that our couch was destroyed with Apollo sleeping in one of the holes that they dug.

Our new plan is to tire the dogs out by walking them up and down the stairs of our 6 story building each morning for as long as they can handle it. Apollo, being 11 years old doesn't have quite the stamina that Asta has at 6 years old. We have been getting in about 15 minutes, which seems like it is doing the trick. There has been no more major destruction since we implemented the new "tired basenji is a good basenji" exercise routine!

  1. Wow! Surprised that Mr Apollo did not leave the scene of the crime!

    Basenji sure do keep their slaves in shape! I have to walk mine 3-4 miles a day to avoid destruction and the silly goofy 500!
