Steely Dan's Christmas

Last April/May, we adopted Steely Dan to be part of our little family. He is a wonderful friend and pet, great companion for my husband who is retired and disabled, always keeping a close eye on my husband. He loves to wait by the front door for me to come home from work, wags his tail, and always tries to give my hand a lick in welcome. He loves to go for a ride with us and just so well behaved when we take him in for his regular grooming. Our family is bilingual Spanish speaking so some of our family calls him Pepito. He answers to either name. He loves our grandchildren who are always here for any occasion. Everyone loves Steely Dan/Pepito and he loves everyone, very protective of our family and our home, barking only when a stranger comes to the door. Steely has been a gift to us, in that we are both in our mid-60s and we needed a companion who didn't jump around all over the place and needed to be "run" everywhere. He is content to go for walks. So, we just want you to know that Steely is happy and doing well, and is happy in his home. The photo was taken a couple of days before Christmas 2002.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

How 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 any trouble!!
