Hi henning love readers, this is Kip

Woof! This is Kip Keino Henning, yes that is my full name and my mom finally relented and allowed me to take over her blog for today. So a little bit about me, my name is Kip Keino Henning, I am named after a famous Kenyan runner. My breed is jack russell terrier. I am currently 2.5 years old. I eat two meals a day, more if I can get away with it. I came from a little of 6 other brothers and sisters. Wanna see the litter?

My poor mom, 7 pups attached to her nipples. I was raised in a good home my first 9 weeks. My human mom got me from one of her co-workers so I still get to see my dog dad, mom and one brother every so frequently. 
Here is another couple of photos when I was brought home to live with my human Dad. See my parents didn't live together until they got married, which was about 13 months from when they got me to when they were married. My parents like to joke that my dad was the actual parents and my mom was the grandma, who got o see the fun side of me, bring me treats and presents but not have to do the dirty work!
Wanna see some more photos of me when I was a cute puppy?








Ok did I say a few photos? Sorry I meant a lot! I just know I am so darn cute :-)
How about a few more? Especially of my first bath.



And then I learned I like to cuddle up with my mom when I sleep, which I still get to do to this day.


Some of my favorite things are watching my mom bake or cook dinner. I have a certain spot I always like to sit in, it is most convenient to gobble up any food she might possibly drop. Another one of my favorite activities is running with my mom in the morning, we usually go 4 or 5 miles. I immediately know when she is putting on her running shorts and it is time to go. Or when she says walk, my ears perk up, and I start running around the house like a crazy puppy because I get to go outside.

I also love to go hiking with my mom, she lets me off the leash and I charge ahead up the mountain. Of course, I return if I don't see her following me, I always remember to check to make sure she is coming.
More about me, yes I am definitely an only child even though I do have a sister, I still make sure I am the center of attention within the family.

Some of the things that I do: if you are petting me and you stop, I will pat my paw on your hand or arm to continue petting me, I will let you know when I am done.
I wake up my mom with a lick in the morning for her to get out of bed to feed me breakfast. I never go to Dad for some reason, it is always Mom.

Ok, Mom is giving me the evil eye telling me that I have talked long enough and have entertained all of my Mom's lovely followers to the limit. Thanks for listening to me today, and woof!

Hi Kip, this is Freedom. My mom is letting me reply today for once instead of just letting me sit on her lap as she reads. I can't wait to meet you. I think we were either separated at birth {which is weird since I am only 7 months} or maybe we are soul mates. The 2 year age difference does not bother me even though it is like really 14 years. Have a great day Kip! btw, my mom says "hi" to your mom :)
