Tippy is 19!

My fiancee, Phyllis, has a basenji named Tippy. Tippy was purchased at a Connecticut Pound; BRAT worked out the rescue. Tippy was 6 years old at the time of the rescue and today she is 19 years old (January 9, 2010).

Here are a few pictures. Mind you, at 19 yrs old Tippy is playing with my Pembroke Corgi who just turned 2 yrs old. He has been trained to back off to let her rest during play periods.

Tippy has tons of energy for 19, and although a rescue Basenji, she is as friendly and loving as if she had never had a tough life prior to being rescued by Phyllis 13 years ago!

She and my Corgi get along like best friends and play at least once or twice a day. She is in top form and we see no end in sight!

Love to you and your staff!!!

-Ernie, Phyllis, Tippy, and Tecumseh

  3. How wonderful! My BRAT boy, Marco Polo, is just about 17 years old now. He does have some issues, but he's still up to trying to steal the roll of paper towels from me on a regular basis. Love the oldie senjis!
