Tiegan and Miles are not enjoying this stretch of bitter winter weather that makes it difficult for them to be outside long enough to run off any excess energy. We have a bit of cabin fever to contend with. There are more frequent Basenji 500s with Tiegan bouncing off the back of the couch, catapulting across the end table, and dashing around the corner as Miles scrambles over the back of the love seat in pursuit.
Our sweet babies usually only snark at each other if they’ve acquired something they shouldn't have. When I hear snarking, I shout “What do you have?” as I start running toward the noise.
Recently I raced into the bedroom to find that the yard stick through the drawer handles that prevents Tiegan from opening the top drawer on the bedside chest did not deter Miles. My smart boy discovered he could easily pull open the top drawer while it was attached to the two below it. This yielded a bonanza of forbidden delights. Decimated tubes of lip gloss, pens, tissues, and magazines covered the bed. They retrieved a small bottle of water, chewed holes in the cap, and danced around on the bed, playing keep away while splashing water everywhere. It was a relief for all of us when the temperature temporarily climbed back above freezing.
Even in chaos, they make us laugh in delight at their impishness. They are fun, entertaining little sweethearts. Please click the link below to enjoy their Valentine.
