To all of you basenji owners and lovers, I am sure you all can relate to this! No matter how hot it is, my basenjis insist on sleeping under the covers.They will scratch me until I pull them up over all of us! But not only that, it is A BIG DEAL TO GET INTO BED!!! Seamus MUST sleep at my right shoulder, but he must get on the bed FIRST, because Nina won't let him up if she is on the bed already. Nina, must sleep at MY LEFT KNEE! I am like the great wall, and I must stay between them at all times. If anyone sees anyone or -God forbid- TOUCHES anyone, there is an all out DOG WAR!!!!! And then I have to use the blankets to break them up and try to calm everybody down and go back to sleep (an hour-long ordeal).
Assuming all goes well in the night, I have happy basenjis in the morning and this is my greeting when I get up...So I guess it's worth it :)
