Happy doxie stories ...

My husband and I adopted Baxter on the 21st. His first week home was a great success. He is pretty well bonded with us. I took him to his new vet this Friday just as a precautionary measure and he got a clean bill of health. Our wonder baby is also fully housetrained. We had hoped so, but were very pleasantly surprised to find that someone had worked with him on housetraining.

He's enjoying sitting on our laps, on our couch and snoozing in his bed. We're going to get him a ramp/step for the couch. He absolutely insists on sitting up there. I guess it's his way of staying comfy while snuggling and keeping an eye on theactivities of the house. He's playing nicely with all of our neighbor dogs, including Max and Maggie, our 2 mini-doxie neighbors. We are happy to report that we have supervised him around children at the park and he seems to like them, too.

Thanks a bunch for taking care of him before he became a part of our little family.

Hi Connie,
Thought you would like an update on Marsha who we adopted about 6 weeks ago. As you might recall, we were concerned that Cinnamon (our other doxie) would get along with Marsha; well, look at the pictures! Marsha has settled in wonderfully, at night sleeping under the covers with me, Barbara, and Cinnamon. She is so excited when she sees us after we return from errands, etc. She is 90% house-trained; but, still sometimes goes in the service porch. We ordered her a set of "dog-buns" so she does not have to share Cinnamon's set ( And she runs so fast in the yard, we are thinking about entering her in the "Weiner Dog Races" at Los Alamitos next June. Regards.

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!!
