That's right! After the first of the year, my husband is going to be PCSd to Creech AFB in Indian Springs, NV. It's a little bit north of Las Vegas! So Doppler and Virga will be desert dogs for a few years. Any advice from our basset pals from that neck of the woods with regards to desert dwelling?

We wish you an early welcome to Nevada. We're in Laughlin NV about 90 minutes south of Vegas. We have never seen another Basset here. Daisy came from a great group, the Las Vegas Basset rescue. About 8 months of the year the weather is great. This time of year the dogs don't go out much but they do have a doggie door. You just have to be careful they don't get their paws to hot from the sidewalk. On the plus side we don't seem to have the problems with ears and such maybe because of the dryness and low humidity. Oh and no playing with rattlesnakes and scorpions. Maggie and Daisy

Thanks dreamons! We'll keep all of that in mind for sure. Does anyone have any tips on traveling cross country with them? If there's a thread for this just direct me to it. Thanks so much!

Well Worm everyone can come to Laughlin. Lots of machines and puppy friendly hotels and floating on the river. Oh and something called a crap table. Sounds like fun not sure our parents would like us on a crap table though. Maggie and Daisy

Nice!!

k, i guess we can say the basset galz can come too and do their gal thing while they guyz do theirz :cool: then we can meet up in the pool or poolside for those who don't swim (Pais). we bassets always like to sun ourselves...

methinks we must wait for Dopplah to get to Nevada first... then we can par-teee!!

Winston-- methinks Woody or Bernie would be driving us around in their Jeeps!
