Cocker Twins! ...
Remember me?? I'm the one on the right in this picture!! You used to call
me Sidney at B&B, but my mommy, Julie, named me Daisy. When she adopted
me from B&B in March 2001,
she took me home to Redondo Beach to meet my big brother, Kruzer, who looks
just like me. I am spoiled rotten and have fancy beds, toys, and I have a
mobile groomer that comes to my house to make me pretty every 6 weeks. I love
playing ball in my backyard, taking daily walks on the beach, and best of
all~~I love sleeping on a down comforter!! I have never been happier, and
I feel so thankful that B&B gave me the opportunity to go to this wonderful
home. So, please give all my friends who are at B&B hope that their dream
home is still out there. It sure came true for me!!
again for helping me to pick out a wonderful dog. She gives me tons of love
& affection and she is a great playmate for Kruzer. They got along great
the minute they met. Daisy is a wonderful addition to our family!! I have
told numerous people about your organization, as I think it is a wonderful
thing that you do. Please let me know if you are going to post Daisy's picture
on the internet site so I can show her that she is famous!! --Julie Upp [10.1.2001]
It's been two weeks since Buddy came home with me and
he's been doing great. He and his "sister" Fly seemed to have worked
out who's the dominant dog (Fly) and they have settled into a peaceful relationship.
She's definitely taught him the rules of the house.
really is a joy and has helped fill the hole left in our lives when Joe (my
first beagle) died. I'll send a picture when I can get a roll developed. I've
managed to take only about six pictures so far because he won't sit still long
enough to have them taken. He's quite a curious little fellow and has his amusing
quirks, like stealing the bath mats and running off with them. If I only had
had my camera handy when he had one bath mat in his mouth, shook his head and
then went running down the hallway with it folded over is head ... Thank
you for taking him in when he left his previous home because now I have
him in mine. Karalyn (Lyn) Wallensak [9.23.2001]
More doggie parents! It's wonderful to see folks leave with a big smile!
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
