I tried to get pictures of Bo playing with the ferret, but that thing is too quick, so I wrote a poem :? . It's so funny, and entertaining to watch. they really like each other...When I finally put the ferret in it's cage, they both acted so disappointed.

The Ferret and the Basset Hound

I find myself the keeper of a
ferret, I'm telling you it's true
who runs all around my house all day
shaped much like an inverted 'U'

Bo tries his best to 'catch him'
but the ferret is far too fast...
he'll give him the 'slip', then watch him
as he's still sniffing where he saw him last!

chattering, the ferret calls him to him
and Bo, tail wagging, playfully pounces
But the weasel has outsmarted him
...he can easily hide all 7 of his ounces

But what a smell that ferret has!
an untamed kind of musk, it's wild
and Bo is so busy tracking it
he's going to be busy for awhile!

LOL too cute! That must be a sight!
ferret poem

You have a gift there!
I have never owned a ferret, but think they are terrribly cute!
In our local paper today a local pet store selling them, had one stolen. A couple asked to hold one and they then walked out of the store with it stuff in the ladies purse.
Our ferret died before George moved in, but our German shepherd made the poor thing's life miserable for the day and a half it took me to figure it out and separate them. Poor Peekaboo had to live in another room the rest of his life when Sweetheart was in the house. He only got to come out and play in the other rooms when she was outdoors. Sweetheart was quite a mouser and I think she thought he was an elongated mouse. So if your dog gets along with your ferret I think that's a wonderful thing for both of them.
