Yesterday moring we were at our local Dog Park and I let Tayamni back in the large dog area because .... well .... no one else was there. People and pets started strolling in and there was one dog, lean like Tayamni and had a partial bob tail with long fur bushy at the end. I found out it is a Village Dog from Cameroon, Agrica. The guy used to live there and adopted a female pup. Kona, is 2.5 years old now. The owner said the hardest thing for Kona from the move is that she didn't understand the dogs in the UA and therefore never really played with any at the dog park. (He had lived up north for a bit before coming to Florida so it's not just Florida dogs). He couldn't figure out what type of dog Tayamni was, he said she didn't look like anything predominantly so either she was a mix of a lot or something different. Kona decided she wanted to play with Tayamni and they ran, did a little wrestling and ran some more. The owner Chris, explained to me that the village dogs where he lived had many colors and some upright ears and some floppy, and different tails, but Kona's tail was traditional of the village dogs. He also said the males get more robust and the females, like Kona, stay a bit smaller and she was lean like our AI Dogs. I told Chris about Tayamni and we remarked how they were extremely comfortable with each other. They seemed to understsand each other's body language. It was really nice to see! Of course, we were talking so much and learning about each other's dog that I forgot to get a picture of her. So I found a similar pic off the web this morning. The web pic below is of a male and he is not as lean as Kona the Cameroon Village dog, Picture a lighter/slender frame, then the rib cage and tucked abdomen, and hair more like a sheltie. She was about 35 - 38 lbs. She was just a little bigger overall than Tayamni, who is 20" tall and 30.2 lbs. It was a fun day, too bad we had to cut it short but had to get to the Reiki healing circle! Edited March 8, 2015 by Denise E. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
