ADD and OCD Basenjis
Does anybody else have an ADD basenji? I have an ADD one and an OCD one.
Seamus likes everything " just so" - all his food on my bed, all his
toys in his basket, his usual pee spots, etc. Nina, on the other hand,
takes 100 years to eat, if she is interrupted at all. When I take her
out, it's a never-ending journey to find "THE spot" to pee...BUT if
the wind blows, or a car passes, or a door opens a block away, or a bird
flies over head, or a dog barks in the distance....You get the idea.
She will stop mid-squat and start searching all over again! And at 5:30am, my patience is thin. I'm usually in my jammies. And if I don't
allow her to find HER spot, she WILL go on the rug as soon as I leave
the room when we go inside.
