Kipawa's latest adventures

The weather has not cooperated much, but every time we get decent weather, Kipawa and family go check out various dog parks in our area. We are blessed with many of them. Here are some photos from one of the latest adventures. You'll note that Kipawa is not afraid of mud! And what strange birds we saw at the end of the walk!

What a handsome boy! And so big already! They loose their puppy look way to fast..

Looks like Kipawa has lots of fun on his adventures 🙂

Yes, Janneke. 7 months old and 24 lbs. of muscle. They do grow so fast - he's my 'little man' now, not my 'little boy'!

He's even bigger than Tillo! He's definitely a man now!

btw: He has a gorgeous face 🙂

Looks like fun! He really is a darling little boy, oops, dog-man, no puppy fat either, he looks nice and fit.

Great pictures, he really is a handsome chap, he looks like he's having fun.

Lovely pictures..of a lovely young man… his face is stunning..so intense in his gaze.

Oh, Fran, doesn't he just make you happy when you are with him! I know I enjoy my 3 b's so much. Can't wait to see him and you again in Aug.

What a pretty boy!!!

He is growing too fast!

And those birds… huh?????
(it's a joke right? :D)

He looks wonderful and happy!!!

Hello Fran! Kipawa is looking amazing. He was very lucky to find you…or you were lucky to find him...or you both were lucky to find each other. Ha Ha! Either way you three are a happy family. Eventually I will have to post some new pics of his sis...she has started to look less skinny but she will obviously never be a real big girl (okay with us!). BTW, obedience class is going okay...baby steps...very small and slow baby steps:)

Oh yes, Sharron. When I am walking him, I must look like a total nut-bar, because I have this perma-grin/smile on my face. I also talk to him all the time on walks. So one of these days I won't be surprised if I am met by men in green suits holding a white jacket for me. :o

Definitely, but it was so funny to come across them. I just kept on wondering who went through all the effort to put them there. On the other hand, they serve as a land mark at those park trails, because you can easily get twisted around and forget where you are.

Walter, we would LOVE to see some pics of Scarlett. Little Miss 'Skah-lett'. Not a problem that she will be smaller because you can pick her up easier! 🙂 My boy feels like a ton of bricks when I pick him up. Regarding classes, small and slow baby steps are acceptable progress. So don't worry. Kipawa still needs more work on being in control on the leash. We want to take him to the rehab hospital Darrel mentors at, but can't quite do it yet - he would be pulling me all over the slick floors. I may just try an Easy Walk harness.

He is great off leash (in safe off leash parks), always comes back when called. But the tugging gets a little tiring sometimes. I know he is testing me. He'd love to be boss, but that isn't going to happen!

I work in a doctor's office and Scarlett comes with me on occasion…the patients love her, I'm sure Kipawa will be a hit as well. Scarlett tugs on the leash a bit too but her heeling is getting better. But when she tugs it is nothing compared to Mr. Tank:)

He is looking so grown up! And handsome, too!

"Pull" you off your feet, isn't that part of a Basenjis middle name?

He's growing from a lovely puppy into a very handsome yung man. A credit to you Fran!
