Comments: I was directed to the site by one of the Vet Techs at the Veterinarian's office that I frequent for my two Bassets. I am a Basset Hound person through and through as I have owned 4 other Bassets in addition to the two that I have presently. They tug at your heart strings, don't they?

Comments: Two weeks ago I adopted Geoffrey, a Basset rescued from a puppy mill. Geoff is two years old-was used as a stud.
Geoff is a love, gentle with everyone.
We are having a tough time, though, and I could use any advice from experienced Basset owners.
He has already chewed through a door, climbed up on my dining room table three times, chewed up my eyeglasses...Well,you get the picture.
He is very smart- has already learned Sit, Come, and Wait.
I crate him when I am at work and a neighbor takes him out for me. I am a teacher, so soon I will have plenty of extra time to work with Geoff. He gets long walks.
Hopeful sign- I just bought a squeaky rubber toy, and Geoff is having the time of his life with it!! He is BUSY!! Could it be that he just needed something to "hunt?" I've never had a hunting dog before. He is actually barking (had barely made a sound before) and running around my apartment like a madman, after something I want him to chew!!

Comments: I haven't been a member of the Daily Drool for several years but I wanted to send a post. Our 13 1/2 yr old basset, Arnie, went to the Rainbow Bridge last night. He had the usual old age complaints but it was pneumonia at the end. He was active right to the end. He loved his walks, rides, and playing with his cookie hiding toy. Maybe some of the members still have his Christmas card where he is laying on the diving board of the pool. He had a great personality and will be sorely missed. Enjoy life at the Bridge, Arnie.

Comments: I have been remiss in posting my many thanks for teh Daily Drool members for remembering me this past Holiday Season. Many of you were made aware that I lost my husband Steve to a car/motorcycle accident June 4, 2010. Words fail me for all the lovely Christmas and New Year's cards that I received. Each day I would receive cards of you and your lovely pets. God Bless each and everyone of you and your fur babies. I lost my basset hound Samantha on 11/17/2010. She came to use an abused lady, yet she never once was a burden. I miss her drool and her howl. I have to mention Cindy Foxhoven and Anne Dean for they work hard with their cursade for Iowa Basset Rescue. I try to help out with the organization when I can. To all of you, thank you and God bless.

Comments: On friday, FEB 4 we had to have our beloved Basset, CRASH put down after a 14 year love affair, He went to the vet 2 weeks ago because of a slight limp on his rt. rear paw, the vet said arthrites gave him some very expencive meds witch didn't seem to help much, but TX had the coldest temps in years so I waited a few days hoping the meds would work, he got so bad he couldn't even stand up to go to the bathroom, so on Fri. morning I took him back to the vet. a few hours later I got the call I didn't want to hear. She said he had a adbonmal toomer and it was time.I Thank GOD for 14 fantastic years, But getting over this will take years.REST IN PEACE OLD FRIEND,YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED, YOU WERE THE BEST DOG EVER
