My adorable Kipawa

Some of the newest pictures of his last big outdoor adventure. Kipawa has not read the book about basenjis not liking to get wet/dirty. Can someone mail him a copy?

Oooohhhh so cute!

Exquisite !!!

He is a great adventurer.

How does he feel about the clean up bath?

What a mucky boy he is!! Fab pictures 😃

I LOVE the last one where he's sleeping. That must have been quite an adventure for him - he's so tuckered out! Beautiful boy!

Great photos of a handsome little guy! I have a mud basenji too, I call my little Ono-monster 'pig-pen.' I swear she could find mud in a desert. She would have a ball with Kipawa.

If you all find the post of C-Me and the picture of her after chasing the ducks into the water, becoming soaked… and then being rolled in the dirt... again there is another example of "not reading the standard".... ggg

cute wrinkly forehead!!

First Basenji's

He's such a fearless adventure-hound… and a little dirty one, at that! 😉

Maybe it's all the evil influence of that Welsh Terrier/Airedale! Hehe. (Actually, I really like those dogs.)

@deschroedter:

Well, I think that in his mind, the aggravation of the bath is worth the unabashed play. That day, he went into the shower with me …. muahahahahaha!

Love the black feet! Makes him look like a fox.:)

He is beautiful…love the pic of him sitting there all muddy and cute 🙂

Great pictures, Fran!

I have a feeling Blaze may be another one of those non-standard Basenjis when it comes to getting wet/dirty. He isn't bothered by rain and I've seen him walk through puddles of water (both of which Maxx avoided like the plague). It'll be interesting to see his reaction to the ocean when we take him to the Washington State coast later this summer.

Yes, I think some basenjis just go by the fact they are 'dogs', and will get into anything.

Oh… love the Washington coast... very similar to our coast here. The first time Kipawa experienced the ocean, he was trying to catch the waves. Of course he also tried drinking the salty ocean, and was not happy with the taste. He shook his head side to side, really fast. Then he looked at me with a look that kind of said "hey, what's going on? Someone ruined my water"!

You'll have a great time. Remember to bring a camera and take lots of pics. 🙂

Okay, I may be biased but my non biased opinion is HE's Adorable. Hugs to Kipawa! Love the mud photos.

Here is the link to C-Me's Mud picture, notice the "two clean Basenjis next to her"

Congrats on Scarlett's graduation! Are you planning more obedience classes? We are, simply because they are great for Kipawa's mind - they really tire him out.

Yes, our basenjis are maturing. We got a call from our vet yesterday reminding us that Kipawa needs to be neutered. Once again, we mentioned that we are looking at another 2 - 4 months. When are you planning to spay Scarlett?

Let Scarlett know that her brother looks forward to seeing her in the future!
