Hi everyone.

I'm new to this forum and thought I'd introduce myself. I live in south east Ontario (between Ottawa and Toronto) and share my home with Floyd, an 8 month old Basset we rescued this summer, and 3 Newfoundland Dogs Neptune, ZoŽ and Marin. We started researching Bassets 2 years ago when we were considering adding a smaller dog to our pack, and found that a Basset would be a good fit for our family. When the opportunity came up to adopt Floyd we jumped at the chance, and are so happy he found his way to us.

We are active in working dogs activities like Water Rescue and Drafting, and are interested in getting into tracking with Floyd and Neptune. We spend a lot of time outdoors and Floyd has proven himself to be excellent at hiking, keeping pace with the Newfs with ease. He's been a great addition to our family, and certainly the sight of a Basset marching along with his family of Newfs makes everyone smile wherever we go.

Look forward to getting to know you all.

Beautiful dogs! Love how Floyd has got himself sandwiched between two big Newfs. Very precious!

Welcome Sandra and Floyd! I've enjoyed your beautiful photos for quite some time on the Daily Drool - it's great that a new bunch of folks will get to see them. Floyd together with your Newfies is an unbeatable combo!

What an adorable photo. Floyd looks like he's thinking "What have I gotten myself into?" But I bet he loves his big buddies. Your dogs are stunning.

Of course! Floyd wouldn't have it any other way...he especially likes to curl up on top of Neptune.

Wow! What awesome pictures and a nice doggie family. I have never heard of "Newfs" before. How do they all get along? I am intrigued. They all look so cool together.

I love that picture. I am sure my hounds would think that Neptune was a great big pillow!
