WOW! That is encouraging and Amazing! You must have done one heck of a job caring for Chloe! So sorry for your loss. I'm sure she was one special gal.

Wow – way to go Lightning 14 and 1/4 years old and still going strong. Lucy just turned 13 this month and I hope we’re also blessed to have her with us for a long time to come. Here’s to a long life for all our hounds

Soundtrack, so very sad when Gabby went to the bridge. She was a beautiful girl.

Thumbs up

I know an eighteen year old basset that loves his weekly trip to the petsmart. He walks around and is loved on by everyone, gets weighed and maybe a nail cliping, and some treats. then he walks to the car, gets into his crate and is lifted into the car for his ride home. P.S.-- The manager told Mr. Fred's human that they could "walk" in his aircondentioned store whenever he wanted to do so. Mr Fred was a red and white but now he is mostly white and a washed out red.

T-Bone was either 12 or 13 and spent 9 of those years with our family.

Lula is 13 3/4 and going strong. She has a great aspect on life - always the optimist. You can open any cupboards, doors, shopping bags etc..and she's there. OH thinks she's looking for that sirloin steak that just might possibly be jump out. As long as she thinks she's the Queen and we are her loyal subjects she's very happy.And we are all happy to oblige. Once a week the girls go to doggy day care and Lula spends the day playing with the pups, comes home exhausted. OH and I are always saying take a page out of the Lula book

Daphneyland has (obviously) a huge range of bassets. Oldest is 19, few 18's. They can get up there. I think they're like people in that it really can vary. Ave probably is 12-13.

I hope Flash lives a long long time. She 1 1/2 now. I wish bassets could live 75-100 years also. They are a great joy to have!!!!
