Merry Christmas everyone! Although I no longer have a basset, I still love them & visit this forum every so often. It's fun seeing all the pictures and hearing about the antics that only basset people can appreciate. Our new rescue Heinz 57 has filled us with so much love, but I must say it's been a strange transition to have a dog that comes when you say come... or jumps down off the bed when you tell her to... Happy holidays!
