1. Never to go for a walk when on a timeline...futile and totally frustrating for both of us. I now can smell the flowers with the best of them.

2. Not to take it personally when he wants to stay with the stranger who he just met 5 seconds ago instead of going home with me. I had a hard time handling this one in the beginning.

3. Not to get embarrassed when people stop to aid my dog who is "playing dead" while on one of our walks. I have tried to explain about being a basset but very few understand.

He evidently has done a good job training me...can any of you add to the list?

5) Never...and I repeat NEVER leave a sandwich unguarded!

6) Don't look them directly in the eyes...They can put you under a hypnotic spell to make you think that you did not feed them.

7) Your basset will do anything for you.....as long as they think it is in their best interest.

8. Never leave anything you value less than 6 feet off the floor.

a basset can detrime when you rise form a chair/coach etct withiin the first step if it is to go to the bathroom, refridgerator, outside or to bed and act on it accordingly.

True that, Mikey! I can head for bed and he is ahead of me waiting at the bedroom door. So, I try to confuse him and head for the kitchen or bathroom instead, nope, he knows!

I've been told a time or two that I have "something like chewed up kibble" in my ear. I have learned to check them before leaving the house. Wonder how it got there????????

Do not feed a basset after midnight
Do not get wet unless you are prepared for the consequenses
Never put it in direct sunlight - unless it is sure it is time to wake up!

Hang on, I think Henry must be part Gremlin!

Always shut the bathroom door when you are in there. My husband had a visitor yesterday. Gandy put his feet up on the toilet while my husband was trying to use it, and the puppy got a face full. He screamed so loud that I thought he'd fallen down in there.
