Some of you have expressed interest in the fate of Berkeley. We had Berkeley for nearly two months, yet he and Deedle continued to have issues. He would incessantly harass her, and she would get ticked off. There was a lot of snarking. I thought I could figure out a way to help them overcome their differences, and I was ready to seek outside help, but then I went on vacation and left Peter to deal with the disgruntled duo. In addition to driving one another crazy, they drove Peter crazy. He called BRAT (Basenji Rescue and Transport, a really great organization. In fact, we adopted Deedle through BRAT), and they immediately set up a meeting and a drop-off, and it was bye bye, Berkeley.
I called Berkeley’s foster mother when I got back from Australia, and I learned he is doing well and will soon be rehomed to a home with no other pets. He is a good little guy, but he had never had any training, and he was pretty undisciplined and wild. We were committed to keeping him, but unfortunately, the situation was getting almost dangerous for Deedle. I feel pretty guilty about it, but you know, I look at Deedle now, and she is so happy to be rid of Berkeley that I don’t feel as badly as I probably should!
