..and he has just turned 7 months old. He is still into all kinds of NON dog approved things, but that is to be expected..he is a basenji after all, right?
We have finally solved our crate issues when I last week purchased a huge 48" crate for him and Moses to share..they now sleep in there at night and if and when I leave during the days..I can even be in the house and picking things up after I crate him and not a single peep comes out of him.
The crate is very large so both dogs have plenty room to stretch out and sleep by themselves…which Moses tend to do..however Pippin clearly thinks that is silly as he always piles up ontop of Moses..Snuggling is the BOMB..:)
We have yet to enter a show, as I wanted him to calm down a little bit more and I also wanted to have some cooler weather so it looks like we are entering a show in October..can't wait.
He is getting very good at stacking and staying, gaiting is OK..although we have lots of time to practice that before we are showing. I haven't perfected stacking him and taking pictures at the same time and my helper (my daughter) has not been home as much, since school is out and clearly playdates are more fun..
One of his favorite thing is the somewhat new Kuranda bed, my whole pack loves it and I got a really large one so they can sleep together...although Pippin hogs it most of the time
sleeping under the bed is also very popular..
We have been practicing on the table some..but these are the type of pics I get…when my photographer is not helping. But at least he stands there
Here is a softened up close up of his pretty head..
Since the heat is here with a vengeance his favorite place to catch some rays is….inside with the A/C blasting..hehe.;)
but even while inside..the sun can make you sneeze..
Needless to say his our love..
