A perfect dog & more
Perfect Dog" by Karen and Seth Ort.
He doesn't lick, or bark too much
No biting, drooling, snarling and such
He'll go outside when he needs to go
But he's known for holding it in for 10 hours or so.
He barks and growls at intruders who come
(But is complacent as soon as he gets a pet from one)
He's curious and puts his nose everywhere
His coat's silky smotth but doesn't shed much hair
His favorite place is right where you are
Snuggled up, he doesn't leave very far
When you want to play, he's lots of fun
Throw him a ball, chase him around, watch him run
Some call him "Cow Dog", as he is black and white
But he's more like a puppy, and he gets quite
A lot of attention wherever he goes
"How cute!" they say as they pet on his nose
He always loves to be with us
We definitely found our perfect dog at Beagles and Buddies.
is a poem about Milo. I hope that you remember him.
Adopting him was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Thanks so much!

known as Spike is doing good. He is warming up to me pretty good now.
He is still afraid of my husband but that is because he's not home as
much as I am. The little guy just follows
me around and follows the two big dogs out in the yard. One pee's all
3 pee. Today we went to my vet just for a little check up to make sure
all is well. Vet says that he seems to be real healthy. That's good! I
went today also and got his Norco dog license. He is now a Norco resident.
HA HA! Today was the first day that he ate good for me. He likes to beg
just like my other two. He's had a few pee pee and poo poo accidents in
the house but I think it was my fault because I was busy and used to the
older dogs who let me know, we're working on it. Soon he will let me know
when he needs to go out. By the way my husband wanted to name him Spike
not me. Oh I guess he kind of looks like a Spike. The little sweet heart.
I love the little guy. I will try to take some pictures soon. I want to
take one of him carrying around his little bed, it's bigger than he is.
Thank You -Waynette
(Fulton) is doing just fine! He has obviously lived in a nice home before
he is potty trained!! Yippeeeee! Nice relief for us. He does not like
it when we leave for any period of time. He is a howler! There is about
a 10 minute jumping-fest when we walk in the door and then he calms down
to his normal self. Funny dog! My sister in Arizona said she saw the Dr.
Laura show . We hadn't even told her that he was going to be on but when
we said we got a dog and his name used to be Fulton, she recognized that
from the show! We hadn't told her we had gotten a dog at that time! Very
cool. Anyway, thank you so much for taking such good care of him. He just
fits real well with our family and we all love him a lot! I tell everyone
I know about your organization- you do such good work. Thanks again -Brenda
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
