Hello Laurel Canyon dog park B-Gang … I'm delighted to announce that Ziggy now has a wonderful little sister! She, too, is a retired show dog whose competition name was "Unexpected Treasure." Her new name is Zen Zhara (pronounced ZAR-uh). She's a fiesty red/white 4-year-old who is definitely going to keep Ziggy on his toes! They're already playing and wrestling in my livingroom; I've even seen her do a few "body slams" to get his attention.
To avoid wrangling with posting her pic here, send me your e-mail address and I'll send the photos directly.
That's wonderful! I can't wait to see the pixs. You have my email address so please send them. I'd love to see her.
BTW, So Cal 'senji owners I'm planning a June 7th play date at my house in Pasadena. It's a Saturday and it will be at 4:00 p.m. I figure the late afternoon would be nicer than the hot hot weather we had last time. Let me know if anyone is interested and somehow I'll get my address to you.
There use to be a private email messaging capability on this forum but I don't know what happened to it. Anyhoo, I'll try to get the info to you.
Hey everyone and happy new year. I just wanted to mention that I saw a Meetup posting for Basenji to meet in Laurel Canyon. It just reminded me about trying to get out there again with Savannah. Hope everyone is well and I hope to try to drag her out there–she really doesn't seem to enjoy the whole experience but I love seeing you all and your pups. I'm sure Savannah won't mind tolerating the experience for me.
Hi to all the Bs, and their people, who are still meeting at Laurel Canyon on Saturday mornings! Ziggy, Zhara, and I are now meeting up with Bs and other sighthounds each Saturday morning at the Magnuson Dog Park, just north of the University of Washington.
They are both doing great - hope your kids are, too!
just to let everyone know - i take Roxy to the beach everyday after work in the Marina. there is a group of us that let our dogs (all breeds) run around off leash. we are there around sunset (even 1 hour before).
if anyone trusts their basenji off-leash on the beach, this is a great place to go.
the best way to explain where it is:
-Marina del Rey, near the Channel and the Jetty
-cross streets - Speedway and Topsail
hope some of you can make it!
This sounds great wish I still lived in CA my mom wants to try to visit with her dogs though I was reading this to her she lives in San Fernando Valley
