Rebel Wong ...

Thinking back to how wily he was when we brought him
home 10 months ago, we're so proud of how well behaved
Rebel is these days. All he needed was a little
patience, love, and training. He's still headstrong,
dominant, and stubborn, but he's also eager to please.

Rebel's becoming more and more athletic (he can snatch a ball
4 feet off the ground now) and I'm thinking about signing
him up for some agility classes. Here's some new
pictures of him meeting my nephew's puppy on
Christmas Day. Also, I can't wait until you put a
picture of Skipper (the pup you describe as Rebel's
little brother) up on the website.

Rebel had a blast camping. I was amazed that we were actually able to tire him out to the point where he would go off to find some shade and take a nap. But the little guy was a trooper and covered about 5 to 6 miles a day with us. That never stopped him from greeting other hikers on the trail though.


Our relationship with Rebel just keeps gettingbetter and better. We just celebrated his 1st Birthday as we chose July 4th to be his birthdate because he's such a firecracker. He's becoming more and more affectionate with each passing day and he's getting plenty of exercise. I'm teaching him how to swim, which wasn't hard as he took to it quite naturally, and he's going on his first camping trip to Mammoth next weekend. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think how lucky I am to have Rebel. We'll continue to be in touch and will send pictures as they become available.

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!!
