Hi all. I'm Talker and I live with my mom and dad and my pesty niece, Savannah. There's also a cat that lives here and she's 10 years old and her name is Casey. I don't mind her, but sometimes I get an urge and I chase her. I get in trouble for doing that, but that's okay.

I love running fast. We have a backyard to run in, but I need more space plus, I like other 'senjis running behind me. Savannah is slow and she don't like to run. Mommy takes us to the school yard on weekend and we run there, but last time we went, we couldn't get thru the gate no more. Mommy says the school is being safe now and we can't get in. I know I can squeeze in and I know 'banners can squeeze in, but mommy can't squeeze thru the chained gate.

So, we walk. Mommy nows has to walk further with us so i get my exercise (and her too).

Rain is back. than means no walk in the rain. i don't mind the rain, but i do mind when mommy puts on that green rain thing on me. i only let her do it cuz then we won't go out. mommy sez when we wet we have doggie smell, but that's not true cuz i'm a 'senji and we don't smell! Savannah smells though even tho she's a senji too.

April 3, 2005

Savannah and I had company. We had a play date with 2 basenjis. Mommy was running around all morning getting things ready and cleaned up because she said we were having company. I thought it was hooman company. Mommy got big sandwiches and said it was for our company so we could not have anything until later. Then the time came and me and ‘banners was taken outside to meet a new friend named Patan. He is 1 year old and really tall; taller than me! He came in our backyard and we got to meet and play. Mommy said I was really good, but it’s because I like other ‘senjis. Patan’s dad came in with a stripey girl named Keyah, but she no like ‘senjis and she fight with ‘banners and me. She had to stay in her kennel until she was good. We had fun and played and played. I like Patan’s mom and dad cause they liked me and they gave me kisses. Patan’s daddy gave me loud kisses like my dad gives me so I think that makes him nice.

We not have a bath forEver! Mommy and daddy think that it’s time. I don’t know what time it is, but it’s no time for a bath. ‘senjis don’t like baths. Poor ‘tabannah went in first and I waited on the bed until I know she was coming out. I didn’t hear nothing, but when she came out, I ran outside. Mommy come looking for me “Talker, Talker!”, but I no come to mommy. I ran outside and she found me. She pick me up and take me inside the water room. Sure enough, Daddy scrub my neck and back, and tummy. He said I was a good boy for not fighting, but I was not happy. I came out all wet and smelly. Mommy give me kisses, but I ran outside and “tabannah lick me dry cuz she’s always hungry for something. Mommy and daddy sez I look pretty handsome, but that’s a lie cuz I handsome already.

Oh, we had another play date with Patan! Mommy keep saying Patan coming, Patan coming, but I not know what that means. All I know is that we not go for a walk like we always do in the morning. Finally, Patan comes (with his daddy) and I a good boy with Patan. We run and play again. Mommy sez that I’m getting better. Patan look for squirrels and birds just like me. We run back n forth trying to catch them. They are pesty and I tell Patan he needs to watch for hours and hours like I do, but that means he has to stay overnight and I don’t know about that. Patan likes to eat taterchips. Funny Patan even ‘tabannah no eat chips. We have so much fun, but not so much fun that I didn’t want to walk at night. Daddy had to walk me and ‘tabannah and that’s no fun cuz he always in a hurry.

My mommy was upset with me yesterday. She say I no walk with her right. I walk fast and pull hard and mommy no keep up. But I excited and there is sunshine and I see lots of dogs and I want them to see me and I pull and snort and kick up my back legs and mom no like that. Last night I crash into mommy when I run and jump on the bed. She in the way and I was flying and we crash and mom fall down. She got a bruise on her leg cuz my teeth hit her. Sorry mom don't get in the way of a flying 'senji!

I try to do better. Tomorrow is mom's off day and she'll stay home and she'll see me walk better cuz we walk long on her days off.

too bad 'tabannah has to come.

On Sunday mommy take 'tabannah and me to the trails near the big park (golf course). We like that place cuz there all sorts of smells there. We like to run free cuz mom sez it's okay for a little while. When we almost leave, i see a big black dog that come my way. I take my stance and mom try to say 'sit, stay, calm, treat" all that stuff she sez. But I keep watch and the black dog and his hooman come my way. His name is toby and he not get mad at me cuz I snark and grab his hair. I do this two time and hishooman lady keep saying nice things to me and make me confuse. I give up and I smell toby and toby smell okay and then we alright. We so alright that we even walk and play together, but toby a little older than me and he no run like me and play like me. He no 'senji, but he alright. But i okay with Toby and mom happee and she give me treats and say 'good boy talker, you a good boy" and the lady is nice too. She like me too for being nice to Toby.

'tabannah and me have a new friend and his name is toby. Finally, someone who understands me.

'tabannah and me have another play date. We meet a new tri girl and her name Cheyenne. Patan come over too and he still getting taller than me. We played with his dad who scared us. But I try to be brave and find him when he hid behind the house. But I got scared too.

We all play real good, but mostly we sniff around each other. We all getting to know Cheyenne and she getting to know us. She not fight with 'tabannah, but I did "argue" with Cheyenne. I got testy cuz there was this squash olive on the ground and i see her sniffing at something and then, i just had to have that olive and I just had to fight her for it and I was bad and Daddy yelled at me and I was put inside to think things out before I could come out. I made Cheyenne cry really loud and I didn't mean to hurt her but she cry big and I not know how to help her. Everyone came to see the fuss and I got embarassed. Later Cheyenne got off her mommy and walked around again and we were fine. Savannah just lucky it wasn't her on the ground fighting.

we had good eats and lots of extra treets. It was a good 'senji day. We went to bed really early.

Sorry Cheyenne.
