    I remember reading that post, here it is

    I just checked my B's feet and they are definitely joined but so is our Schnorkie's feet much less though, and our Doxies feet are barely joined like our hands have that skin between the fingers...and yes they do smell like fritos, yumm-o. As far as Otis' general smell, like straw or something that, very faint and pleasant.

    All B's have the web feet. Apparently this trait is uaually found in water breeds? I found a list on the internet about webbed paws when my family was picking the dog for us.

    yeah....they shouldn't have webbed feet like a water dog. Some do have the toe pads of the middle toes fused but not all.

    I've never seen webbed feet on a basenji. Of my 3, Ruby & Liyah have the middle toe pads fused, Brando does not.

    I mis typed, sorry. webbed toes on the paws. Orginial Basenjis taken to England in the 1930's were said to have connected toe pads. I refered to them as webbed, but I understand that it not acturate. Sorry Again

    I totally noticed that paw thing the day we rescued Starla!! As for corn chips ...
    Can anyone tell me if Basenjis can "spray," though? We've noticed that if Starla is doing something naughty or if she's nervous, she makes a skunky smell. ... I googled it and didn't pull anything up. Thanks a bunch!!!
