This is what I see
every morning on my chest. - Peter Wong [Jan 21. 2002]
It's Buddy Taylor! His pix never got on the web and a senior woman adopted both
him and Maddy, a l0 yr pom. She already had a l2 yr pom.

I thought I would write you a short note about how Im doing. You knew
me as Witty Smitty. Now Im called Woody. You see my grandfathers
name is Whit and it was all too confusing. Anyway, I like my new name.
My new owners tell
me Im such a good boy and I believe them. I follow directions well
and hardly ever get into any mischief. Well its getting late now and I guess
its time for me to go to sleep. I like to sleep; after all I am a growing
puppy. Anyway I think its time for me to finish up my little letter. I wanted
to send you special thanks. Thank you for taking care of me and finding me a new
home. I hope all the friends I left behind at Beagles & Buddies find a good
home too! I hope they find a family as great as mine! Thanks again!!!!!!!! Love

Last summer I left you for my new home in Palmdale. I really like it here. I
immediately hada brother Rocky (18) and a sister Misty (11) and with me we made
a happy threesome.
Right away they liked me and I really liked them too! We all ran and played
together and I was very happy I ended up with a good home. I also have two cats
that are my friends, Zorro (3) and Xeena (1½). At first the cats just
looked at me a lot, but my winning smile and friendliness won them over in no
time at all. Eventually all 5 of us became a family. Oops lets not forget the
two people who adopted me I love them too. Im happy in my new home and
with all my new family members. I love everyone. There
is only one thing that made me just a little sad. My older brother Rocky passed
away a few months after I arrived. That made all of us very sad. We all loved
him and will miss him very much. Other than that I think Im the happiest
Ive ever been. This is my first Christmas in my new home and its
lots of fun. I have lots of squeaky toys, a warm fireplace and cushy cushy pillows.
We have lots of Christmas decorations inside and outside too. I keep looking
out the window cause I hear that sometimes we get snow. And, I have been promised
that when it snows I can run and play in it. I dont think Ive ever
seen snow, let alone play in it. Im not sure I even know what it is but
it sure sounds like fun. Right now I have a big house and a big back yard. I
like running around real fast. Sometimes I even smell something and start barking
while I track it. I think Im getting good at it.
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
