So, in a fit of madness, it was decided that we were going to install a greenhouse in the back garden.

Nightmare doesn;t quite cover it. It's very difficult to fit part A to part B whilst running after a basset that's stolen part C. Going to recover part C, you also discover that parts E, F & G have already made their way into the basset bed.

And by the time you get back, you just know that parts A and B have been moved.

And now where's the screwdriver?

Oh, it's in the mouth of the basset, who is currently tearing round the garden at 100 miles an hour, having a GREAT time.

4 days later, and the greenhouse was built... with one problem.

Snoopy can't see it. And so tears out of the house and slams into the windows.

I can see I'm going to have to paint the bottom panes. Now. Where's the paintbrush...


oh.

He's too cute! You won't have time to do much in the greenhouse anyway, with such a funny little guy around.

Snoopy's a beautiful (and mischevious) fellow. I was wondering about his color? I'd call him a "lemon" colored basset? Would I be correct or not? What think folks? Kezzy?

I was going to ask the same thing, is Snoopy a true Lemon & White?
I've never seen one in person, and only once on a rescue site. Sorry to get off topic.

Dudley and Minnie are not really interested in tools or parts when I do projects, just continually getting underfoot is good enough for them! :?

congratulations on acually getting anything done with basset help I try and try but eventually have to give up until Menna is out for a walk with daddy or one of her other slaves, then it,s a mad rush to try and get another stage done.

Snoopy's colour is rather odd. We were told he was a lemon and white, he and his sister were born that colour - the other four pups, and both parents were tricolour.

However, he's always been very pale, even for a lemon and white - I thought lemon and white hounds were a more caramel colour. Our vet pointed out that he's more coffee and cream....

He's always known as the ghost basset!

(or the phantom sneakythief!)


I occasionally try and get things done when he's asleep, but he knows something's going on and often will come and lie on the instructions and sleep there.
