Arrival Story:
Savannah almost didn't make it to our home. After experiencing one basenji (Talker), another basenji was not on my husband list of dogs to get to keep Talker company. A basenji friend (Linda) who's new pup came from the same breeder as Talker told us that there was a female available from the same litter. Linda brought her little boy pup to visit and my husband saw the way basenji played together and he just loved seeing her little "Taj" that he gave in right then and there and told me to make the call to the breeder and bring that little girl home.

7-23-2012 Banners! journeyed to the bridge this afternoon. It's with a heavy heart that we let her go. The cancer traveled too quickly through her body. She was such a precious girl and she gave us many memories, but not enough. We wanted more, but she couldn't; she stayed as long as she could with us. She gave us so much LOVE! That's what she was all about. WE miss her deeply and she will live and Bee loved inside our hearts forever! Good Journey Baby Girl. Mamma Loves You and Dad does too...and Talker does too.

BanCam Movie Review - Chef

Sorry for the delay in writing my movie review on this movie. I saw it a few weeks ago by hooking up the BanCam to my Dad's head. I actually don't need to do that anymore since I'm an Angel, but I do it for Talker because he can't go to the movies. He can only go to the drive in theater but we don't have one near by. So I give Talker the hook up via my Dad's head.

A good movie, according to my Dad, is one that keeps him awake. This is one of those movies and good thing because we've had plenty of movies where Dad has fallen asleep and we only see the dark floor of the movie theater and Dad's feet.

But back to my review! I really enjoyed this movie. It was entertaining and funny and the food looked soooo good. I wish there was smell o vision and Taste O'vision for this movie because that Chef could cook.

The movie is about a talented chef who conformed to what the owner wanted him to cook and not what the Chef wanted to cook. This Chef could cook but he somehow got caught up on the mundane and boring food that was safe. I bet lots of you pups have the same ol kibble day in and day out. I bet you pups would love to have your very own personalized Chef come cook for you. Heck, I would too! Anyways, this Chef goes back to his roots and finds himself and also finds that he is first a father and then a Chef and that's the important message to this movie. Also, that you can get really excellent food off of those gourmet food trucks.

I have this movie four bags of garlic and chives butter popcorn with sea salt. Not your every movie day popcorn, but the real buttered popcorn. I don't recall any pups in the movie, but I may have missed them because I kept flying to the screen to press my nose over the dishes to see if I could smell the food.

So go see Chef and then go have a really excellent meal! Talker's treat! Just send him the bill.



Talker, the Dawg who Cried WOLF

Talker, the basenji who Cried Wolf!

Oh boy do I have a Tell for you. Well let me tell you what happened this late afternoon. Mom has been home sick all week. Actually gramma was at our house sick too. So Talker was home wiff mom all week but she was too sick to really pay much attention to him. So this afternoon mom felt a bit better and took him for a walk. Well they just got started when they saw the elderly Miss Minnie who was taking her afternoon walk. Mom always stops and talks wiff her cuz she nice and mom always gives her pictures of our xmas cards and Talker's Valentine Day's cards. She really likes Talker. She liked me too and more but now she only likes Talker.

Anyway, they chatted awhile and talker got whinny and they moved on. Then mom saw her other friend who walks Sage who will be 18 on April 18th! Way to go Sage! Oh pawsitive paws for Sage who is going to the vet on Saturday cuz he hasn't been feeling too well.

Anyways, Talker was getting upset cuz they were now heading home. So they said their good byes and moved on.

Well Talker had to pooped and then he did his boy dawg patch out on the grass. After he got off the grass he started limping and holding up his paw. Mom checked it and checked it and couldn't find anything. All the way home Talker kept licking and limping.

Then they get home and all the way I'm telling mom that Talker is faking it cuz he wants attention. But then Talker starts making that funny face of his like when he's gonna throw up and sure enough! He throws up! That yellow stuff. He did it three times! Then he's running around the backyard and panting and running in the house and tearing up the beds by digging to china! Mom keeps checking him but sees nothing so she thinks he needs a benadryl. She she tries to get the tiny pill in his mouth but Talker ain't having it; nope not at all -- not wiff cheese, not wiff dog food, nada!

Talker is just really playing up the scene. Mom takes a wet towel and wipes him down and wipes his paws and tries to cool him down, but nope...Talker is acting it up!

I yell at mom, Take him to the VET ;c;
Cuz I know he's faking it. So mom calls up the emergency vet and hauls Talker to the car.

Then Talker is in the car and he's shaking his paw and he's holding it up like it's hurting him big time. He's going for the Oscar now! But the thing is that he doesn't know he's going to the vet cuz mom had to take him to the after hours vet and he's never been there.

So they get inside and suddenly....yeah..just like that, Talker starts walking normal. The he's not panting anymore. The lady vet comes out and gives mom paper work and mom is about to sign him up, but Talker gets all calm and serious about the situation so mom waits. Then she tells the lady she's going to sit and wait for a bit. Then mom takes Talker outside and walks him around the block and Talker is walking and acting all normal CUZ HE FAKED THE WHOLE THING!!!

He realized he was at the vet's office and he cut the act right then and there!

So they came home and now he's all quiet and embarrassed.

Now mom is all mad at Big Daddy cuz she called him three times but he didn't pick up his phone.

That's my tell!

You see, mom and baby J were in the bedroom cooling off because it's been really mucky at home. Dad was in the living room getting ready to watch the Dodger game. Well Tee decided to do his security rounds five minutes early in order to watch the game wiff Dad. Well he went into the computer room and flung the door open. Dad, being a stickler about keeping all the doors closed while the A/C is on, immediately shut the door; locking Tee in there wiff out any AIR!!!!!!!

Twenty minutes later, Dad went into the bedroom to ask mom if she wanted to go grab some dinner wiff the baby. Well I was flapping my wings big time and trying to get mom off the bed to go to the back bedroom. WELL finally she did. She saw shadows moving under the door and immediately heard me SCREAMING IN HER EAR, OPEN THE DOOR MOM TEE IS TRAPPED INSIDE AND IT'S 100 DEGREES IN THERE AND HE CAN'T GET OUT!!!!!!!!!

Sure enough mom opened the door and Tee came staggering out of there panting up a storm.

So again...I saved his life. It's tough being an Angel.
