Default Why are two better than one?

The girls, they get the job done

Tonight it's one as a pillow, the other as a foot warmer

I can't imagine only having one basset going forward

Sounds lovely. I'd like another one, but OH doesn't. Maybe when we haven't got so much DIY to do...

We're happy with our one Basset. Maddie gets all the attention and that's just the way she likes it. We babysat another Basset for a week once, and Maddie stopped eating. She didn't like seeing another Basset get attention and pets from her people. I had to regretfully decline watching the other Basset again, because we had to put our own first. It was a shame though, we were very fond of EmmyLou.

Amazing. We joked about having enough Bassets to fill the window to watch for my husband to come home. I think 5 would do it.

We couldn't afford a second Gandy. We finally broke down and bought some new phones because our old ones had been snatched so many times that most had numbers missing. He actually tore a hole in the box and got one out before I had a chance to install the new ones. He thinks everything in the house is a dog toy.

With hounds, if only for their well being, 1 is NEVER enough And I can tell you (warn you?) that we had one, for 10 months, before the second arrived. Skipped the Pond and the third was on order (by that time the show-bug had bitten and we had to have a foundation bitch). We were up to a dozen (yes, that was overdoing it ) at one point.

It was very strange when common sense suggested it was time to start winding down, eventually, and we found ourselves with the last one

People often ask, when they see me with my now one Basset out, why you don't see them that often. My answer is because we don't usually have just one, so being out 'in public' isn't an option. You'll be more likely to find us out across the local countryside
