A Great Life for Miss Molly
To all of my old beagles and buddies,
I am having a great time at my new home. I have lived here for 5 weeks and
have not run out of adventures.
My new owners are pretty cool. The mom
talks to me and loves on me unless I do a no-no. Then she firmly
disciplines me with love. The dad walks me, wrestles me, talks to me, and
He lets me know if I do something wrong then trains me the
right way. Walks in this area are awesome! Critters, trails, smells galore
for a hound dog! I am sending some pics. There are so many great snooze
places; guard duty; gardening...
My little sisters and I are starting to figure out how to play with each
other. They are so short, I have to get down on my belly. I am so tall,
they have to get on the couch or run and jump for my ears. We are still
working out the details.
Don't give up hope for families!! My new family tells everyone where I
came from and has given tons of people the directions to where you are.
There are a lot of people in this area who are interested in hounds!!
Got to run- another adventure is just waiting for me!!
Love, Molly and Gordon & Charlene Raistrick
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
