Barney, a senior dog

"Thanks again for persuading me..."

Hi guys,

Just wanted to check in & tell you that Barney Snooper is doing great. We found out he's hypothyroid and just started the medication a few days ago... so i expect he may slim down a bit. Or maybe not.

Thanks again for persuading me to give an older dog a chance. It's the best thing I've ever done and I'm so very happy with my decision. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Here's a current picture of barn with opie (cat) and henry (old cranky doxie).

All the best,

Jenny, Barney Snooper, Opie, Henry & Franny Yoda


How do new dogs and babies get along?

The baby and the dog should never be left alone together.

However, Bassets are the least likely to be dangerous. There are other breeds such as the Labrador, the Golden Retriever, and the Collie that are unlikely to snap at children.

Adopting an older dog that has had experience with children is much better than adopting a puppy or a young dog without experience.

With puppies, teething is part of growing up - and sometimes they don't know the strength of their own jaws. Rather than riskng it, go with an older dog. That way, both parties can have fun & respect without getting into any trouble!!
