• Bibi is unusual for a basenji, I think. Playing in the drainage ditch is her favorite thing to do. Her brother, Chacho, is not inclined, but Bibi loves the water!

    Maybe it's because we live in Costa Rica on the Caribbean coast, and it always rains here, or maybe it's because when we first got her as a puppy her only playmate was a mix who loves water. But, whatever it is, Beeb loves to run up and down this ditch when it's half-full of water. When she's tired, she just lies down and cools off.

    Great pictures. You are right she is definitely different from my B, there is no way he would lay down in water, now way..maybe play if he forgot where he was..
    She is a pretty tri girl


  • I never got a picture of it, but one time Bibi ran full tilt down the ditch and did one of those Basenj somersaults, landing on her back in the water. No problem. She picked herself up––mud running down her sides––shook off, and went back to running down the ditch.

    She also stands (without a lead) and allows me to hose her off using the spray pistol. Her brother tolerates being hosed down, but Bib loves it.

    Maybe she's a water spaniel mix. 😉 Very funny girl.


  • Bibi is beautiful, love the pic of her lying in the water to cool off and the one where she's peering intently into the water.


  • That last pic is great!

    Spraying with hose!! You have to do a video of the drainage ditch run and the hose off! 😃 Mine went swimming in San Francisco Bay yesterday twice, both times far enough out to paddle.
