Litte Maggie ...
Maggie was adopted from Beagles and Buddies August, 2001. Settling into their
house a few minutes after arriving, Maggie has squirmed her way into her parents,
Lynn and Howard's hearts forever.
Despite her petite size, she loves to get into big trouble! Once she started
barking at 3 big dogs on the beach, who in turn charged for her - causing
lil' Maggie to leap into her daddy's arms. Phew! That was close! Her parents
thought it would be nice to share a lovely photo of Lynn and Maggie on the
We love you!
Just an update on Duke aka: Little Duke. He came to live with us two weeks ago.
He is fun and a challenge. He is feeling comfortable with us now, it has taken
a little adjustment on his and our part.
Seems from his former owners he likes socks and stuffed animals, my bears are
a no-no and he his learning. He likes squeaky toys and is learning to play ball.
He has found a way out under the fence and that is being corrected. He took
a trip to Utah and did very well. However there is a window blind that has a
few paw marks only because the humans were amiss at raising it. Everyone he
meets loves him and they tell us he would have a home with them, however that's
not possible we tell them, he has a home. We didn't get his rabies shot record
the day he came to live with us and it was to be sent, I haven't received it
as yet please advise. Keep up the good work and
Thanks, Frank and Rosalyn Brainard 06-03-01
Update ... on Eldo, now named Charlie. He's still doing wonderfully well
and is such a great dog! He's just so sweet and loving... He has TONS of energy,
which is perfect for us, since we're very active. Charlie goes to the dog
park every day, or on off days, gets a nice jog outside. We also take him
hiking, which he LOVES, and doesn't seem to mind staying on his leash. We
don't want to lose him!!!
Thanks again for our wonderful pet-pal.

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
