We live in Mira Mesa but we visit Balboa Park on Sunday afternoons. There's 2other B's that we know of, one in Mira Mesa and the other in Carlsbad. Let us know if you'd like to meet up one of these days. Our upcoming meeting is June 7th in north county. I can give you more details.

Darn, can't make June 7 - I manage the Little Italy farmers' market that is launching that day. Sundays at Balboa are good though - keep me posted on when you'll be doing that again. There's a woman I know in No Park with 3 B's that does balboa sometimes too.
And, yes - love to see photos!
are you free this Sunday after 1pm? we'd like to take our boys to Balboa Park for the afternoon.
We just found out about 2 more Bs in Poway who just got adopted from BRAT. Our community is growing. Yay! Between meetup.com and this forum, we know of 10 B's already who want to get together. That would so much fun.
Yes! We'd love to join you on Sunday afternoon. Are you doing Cabrillo or Morley Field? Fiji and I walk to Cabrillo about once a week.
We were in OB over the weekend and spotted a basenji at the dog park there. We were so excited we pulled over and talked to Kufo and his owner. He said there were 3 b's that go there regularly.
Great fun! Let me know which park and if you're talking just after 1 pm or sometime later and we'll see you on Sunday!
i - tried to email but it bounced back.
The park off 6th Ave is next to Cabrillo Bridge so we've always called it that. We'll see you there 1:15 or so. You can email me at:

Can't wait to meet a bunch of SD b's - and b lovers!
We really did have a great time. We had 6 basenjis show up and for the first 20-30 mins all they wanted to do is sniff each other and stay close to their owner. After a while, they ventured off in the park, and mostly in pairs. One man came up to us and asked "how many are there? I keep seeing them all over the place." Its a large dog park and I'm sure he thought he was seeing double.
We're meeting again this Saturday morning, most likely at the Del Mar Heights dog park. Contact monicazam(at)gmail.com if anyone in SD wants to join us.
Lunas, I haven't tried that park but I've heard good things about it. I have the same schedule as you - Sundays and Mondays work for me, Saturdays don't. We're trying to do once or twice a month.
I think Monica always posts here when we have a meet-up planned. We also have a couple of folks coming who don't visit basenjiforums :eek: so if you send me an email I'll make sure we email you when the next one's scheduled: mercato at littleitalysd dot com
Ha! Ha! Yes, Sherman is a legend (in his own mind…). I would think that we can probably switch to Sundays versus Saturdays to meet. I have heard of Fiesta Island, but not gone there yet, either. As long as nothing is going on in San Diego that day (i.e. - a marathon, sporting event, etc) we can drive down from Carlsbad for the next meetup.
We had another meeting on June 7 in Carmel Valley. Here's a link to the album. Catt volunteered to send email notifications for our next meeting. At our last meeting it was suggested we BBQ. Any takers? We should pencil in a date (preferrably a Sunday so more people can join us) in July.
