Some more about Barty....we adopted Barty from foster parents when he was 7 (He was abused and neglected :( :angry: ) , so we've had him for 3 years now. He is the light in our life and never imagined that we could love someone so much! Barty is very active for his age. He loves to swim and has been in numerous creeks/rivers, Lake Erie, the Long Island Sound and even the Atlantic Ocean! ...we call him the buoyant basset. He loves going on long walks and could walk forever...longest to date 8 miles in 2 hours and 40 minutes {that includes a stop at dairy queen for a cup of water and a little (okay maybe a lot) bit of vanilla soft serve off of mom's cone}. Barty also loves to sing, especially when mom and/or dad slips his name into the song. Barty loves to play in the snow and make tunnels in the yard. He is also the BEST sunggler in the world.

Here are some pictures of Barty...

Barty is such a handsome boy! Sounds like he has a great life with your family and really lucked out when you adopted him. :D He sounds like quite a character! :lol:

Bless you for taking in a dog that many people would have walked by because he was 'too old'. I'm sure the past three years have been the best of Barty's life. In fact, I'm sure of it, considering that he 'climbs mountains' to be with his folks!!!

Thank you for giving this boy a chance at a happier life. How could anyone abuse and neglect such a handsome boy! My boy Gibbs is long just like your guy. My vet says he's a limo.

Hmm, I guess he is quite long. I also think it's kind of an optical illusion because he has a small head....he was the runt in his litter. But, either way, his extra length makes snuggling extra nice. Oh boy do I love him!!!

What a good looking fella. He is very lucky you all rescued him. He sounds like he has a wonderful life now![/b]
My sentiments exactly :rolleyes:
