• Covered by our warm coats, Kipawa and I set out for a good walk today. I was grinning from ear to ear as we walked, Kipawa heeling really well. Every now and then a small correction was needed - a very light movement on the chain coupled with a type of clucking sound from me did the trick.

    We stopped at each corner. Kipawa sat and we checked out for traffic, which is very minimal here, but a good thing to do nevertheless. I was heading to a park I know of, but I didn't know they had beautifully enclosed tennis courts - chain link fences about 30 inches tall with the bottom right in the cement.

    Oh, I felt like a dumb dog owner. I hadn't brought a ball or even a few treats. Of course I was armed with my doggy poop bags though. I ran around the court and Kipawa zoomed along with me. We did this for awhile and I then decided we should leave and head home. But…

    ... what's that on the grass? A baseball? Oh yay! So I picked it up and back onto the tennis court we went. Now here is where the major excitement came. I tossed the ball. Kipawa went running after it... and brought it back to me and dropped it at my feet! 🙂 I said to him "you fetch"? So I thought "yea, I'll try it again, but I will probably have to go get it". Tossed the ball again and Kipawa zooms to get it and brings it back again. 🙂 We did this for a good five minutes. I was astounded.

    Walking back home I realized I had a huge cheshire cat grin on my face. Then once in the house it was treat time for Kipawa. I have to get better organized for our walks now - need my camera, treats and the baseball that we wound up keeping, because I believe we were just meant to find it.


  • LOL! Maxx was never a "fetcher." Oh, he'd run after whatever was thrown…the first time...but he'd just sniff whatever it was. His attitude was always, "You threw it, if you want it back, go get it!"

    I would have loved to see Kipawa fetcing!

  • Houston

    How funny..jepp pictures needed next time.


  • yay! suki's a major fetch-dog, too, and i never expected it! but that's her favorite game and we play non-stop every night. lucky for me, it doesn't require me getting up off the sofa!


  • LOL…of course...Kipawa fetches too!! I just have to laugh as he sounds like the basenji lots of folks want - but few rarely get! :rolleyes: 😃

    That said...my boy Brando fetches - I could throw the ball for an hour and he'd willingly bring it back - he loves it. Ruby will fetch too, but only after she watches all the attention Brando gets from fetching and then she joins in to get some of the attention. After a couple of minutes she is done with it though - as in, what's so great about that game.

    My other 2 - not interested...they'll chase the ball but never bring it back. More like, you want the ball...you go get it. :rolleyes:


  • My Chinese Herrman chase it, take it och run away from mig hahah 😃

    Remember the camera next time, we want pics 🙂


  • I will definitely bring the camera. I'm getting a newer camera that records in high def - need to get all the great moments!

    Do you have any 'points' programs where you are? Like getting points for using a credit card? That is how I am getting the camera. But only use a credit card when you know you can pay the monthly bill off, otherwise credit card companies will rob you in interest.


  • Kipawa sounds like a perfect little dog! I can just imagine you walking with this cute wrinkly pup with a big smile on your face 🙂

    I just hope you get your new cam soon and start bringing it with you on walks 😉 :p


  • I never heard of that kind of card in sweden.
    I don't even think i get at creditcard because I only have a substitute work at the moment 🙂 I need to get me a better job haha 😃


  • What a well trained boy Kipawa is, I can visualise your smile!!
