Shouldn't that be Wesley!!!... Prince Humperdink was a troll! We don't want BC to be the queen of Garbage (Yes, I have seen the movie a dozen times or so!)

I adore my two... would love to have more... sadly between county regulations and hubby I am limited to two. I live in the county. They have a 2 dog limit... the city you can have 4 (WTH!!) I have 1.5 acres, plenty of room for a whole herd! Then again, realistically, my bed just isn't big enough... I would have to have 2 king size beds smashed together, or turn the whole bedroom floor into a mattress to meet my "wants". As it is now, I am lucky to huddle in the corner of the bed!

Thanks all, I appreciate the info! I think perhaps when she's older we could leave her uncrated. Right now she really likes her crate, and I like not worrying that she'll chew something she shouldn't and get sick. But maybe when the puppy stage is over she'd be fine. She's pretty chill most of the time. We've got a dog door, but the steps down to it are too much for her at this size. Stubby little legs! I wouldn't worry about her getting taken, I don't think. But there are racoons in the big pine trees and that would worry me, some. We had an issue with someone shooting my shepherd with bb guns once, too, but that was years ago and the little miscreants are grown up and gone... Two crates just seems like a lot for the house, but I can really see how a second basset would be so much fun at some point. Right now, Ginger seems to have plenty of company with the kids.

Perhaps Yes, Dread Pirate Roberts... but Humperdink is just too funny.

I can't imagine having more than three! Since we added our boy Toby it seems like we have twice as many! I have decided Hubert and Eeyore must be teenagers now as all they want to do are thing they know they shouldn't. Toby is a gem though, just wants to be loved on. (as I write this Toby is in my lap and the other two are having a race around the house)

Having a Princess Buttercup & Prince Humperdink is asking for bad energy

Westley is a muuuuuch better choice

Wow, we have some serious Princess Bride nerds around here! (one of my favorite movies!) What else do we have in common besides our mutts?
Any Monte Python fans? Any Blues Brothers fans? Any Godfather fans?

You know your are a rabid fan if you can watch the movie on mute and still know every line!
