Pet of the week: Kip
My name is Kip. I am a Portuguese Pequeno Podengo, which you probably have never heard of, but I am the national dog of Portugal. We come in three sizes, me being the smallest of the three, and I’m the wirehaired version, so no matter how much my owner brushes me, one good shake and it springs right back out. I am a hound, which is evident as soon as I meet someone, because I insist on smelling every part of their body I can reach. By standing on my 2 legs, a known characteristic of my breed, I can annoy all arriving guests to my fullest capability.
I usually never come when called so I have a big fenced in yard, where my favorite past time is to race the neighbor’s cars up and down the fence line. My owner has clocked me at 25mph so I usually win. I also enjoy barking at the neighborhood cat and anyone who is delivering a package to my house.
