When I tell people I have a Basenji, their first reaction is either "A what?" or "Those are the dogs that don't bark right?" As for the second question, the answer is a little more complicated than a lot of people think. Sometimes, it is assumed that since Basenjis don't "bark" they don't make any noise at all. This is definitely not the truth. Basenjis are known for a trademark "yodel" or "singing" because their vocal cords have a slightly different formation than most dogs. So, they still make noise just not the normal kind, and luckily with Indiana and our apartment situation, not too frequently either.
Today in Indiana Misbehaves - This morning, after I cleaned up Indiana's "business" on his walk, I turned around to find Indiana had something in his mouth. Thinking it a chicken bone, which are constantly littered on the street in my area, I reached into his mouth to take it out. The offending street munchie was one whole pigeon leg. The rest of the pigeon was no where in site.
Is that grosser than anything your dog has eaten?
