2-6-2011 Our favorite park

On a clear day, you can see San Francisco.  It was a tad bit windy, but not cold.  Must have been in the 70's. Though the temp thingie in mom's car, said it was 88 degrees, but we know it wasn't that warm.

You can also see the Golden Gate Bridge!  Course it doesn't look golden from here.  We are not actually this close. Zoom on the camera does a good job.

Ms. Lola who is five years old.  She loves to grumble at all of us. Surprising Jenna or Baree (who are both females), never growled back at her, also neither did any of us guys.
Its funny, cuz she would grumble at us, but kept coming after all of us to check us out.  Her slave said that she only does this to other basenji's, not to other dogs. Interesting.



This here is a (big) whippet, named Random.  He was a "owner returned."  He's a very nice and friendly dog, but he was pooped out and didn't want to run any more.  We saw him on his way out of the park.

When there is a mud puddle, for some reason we can't just resist checking it out.  Mom and Dale were screaming at us to get out of the mud.  Scout is looking right at the camera, and Dannii is just behind him. Look at the muddy paws!  Course they weren't too bad.  We had done worse, believe me.

Ok, so you have seen a bunch of these stupid pics of us on the picnic table............get over it, cuz there is another one.

Told ya!  You can even see the Golden Gate Bridge too.

What is it with the "butt" photos?  Can somebody explain that to us, please?  Don't ask me, but there was sure something interesting here.

Here's another one, Dannii is looking like he is waiting his turn to check things out.  Whatever it was, we all peed on it!

Since mom forgot to bring the water bottle with her, some kind stranger shared their water with us.  Now, wasn't that nice of them?
This is the footbridge we have to cross to get over to the open grassy area, and then we have to cross it again to get back to the car.  Not very wide, and the water is under that bridge.  People are going back and forth at the sametime. We just happened to be going back across, when nobody was coming across!
This the cafe that we always stop at (right at the dog park), so mom and Dale can get something to drink. Sometimes, (not many), their are a few people who will share their hotdogs!
As we got in the car, mom wanted to try and get a picture of us with our heads out the window.  Either Jenna or Dannii kept pulling their heads back in. So, mom had to get a treat in one hand and the camera in the other, and WAALAA, she got a picture with our heads out of the window.  Jenna, what is up with her, looking right at mom?  She is the one who got the treat!

I also want to report that our "boycat" went missing on Wednesday of this past week.  We have not seen him at all. We even asked his sister "girlcat" if she had seen her brother, but she would just walk away.  Well, we are happy to report that mom saw "boycat" today when we got home from the park, and before us dogs even had a chance to get out of the car.  See, he's not neutered "yet", and there are alot of feral female cats around, and yep you guessed it, that's what he was trying to do, but the feral male cats so far haven't given him a chance.  Mom says, that as soon as he come's back in the house, she's going to put him the carrier and take him to the vets to get "fixed"!

Well, that's it for now.  You all come back again, now hear?

  1. Dear Basenji Amigos,
    I like your nice park that you get to go to a lot. It's neat that you can see the Golden Gate Bridge from the park. We can't see it from Missouri, but we have a couple of bridges here over the river, and one was just built, and it's very pretty. Right now it is still too cold and snowy for any of us to want to go outside to a park, except maybe for Nicky, who will go anywhere if there are squirrels there!
    Your friend, Piper
