    Our newest family member.

    Well we've gone and done it. We're adding a basset puppy to our family. Friday I am traveling to Maryland to pick up 12 week old hopeful future champion - Rapscallion's Horizontal Merger call name Benjamin Button aka Benny. I can't wait. Ten year old Gracie Allen's nose will be out of joint until she realizes she now has 2 pack mates to boss around and nine year old Clyde Kadiddlehopper will moan that he's supposed to be the baby but hopefully they will all get along.

    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I think they are adorable but I just can't stand the drool. I just gag.

    Good luck with bringing him in with his new mates. Doesn't look like he has much energy.

    I've been lucky. My guys have all been fairly dry mouthed. Clyde occasionally will drool a bit if there's food involved. I have seen some bigtime droolers and I don't know if I could handle it.

    Me too! There's a TV commercial where the dog shakes his head and the drool flies everywhere, the first time I saw that I almost hurled, now I turn my head when it comes on! Cute dog though!

    I love those velvet ears. Not a big fan of drool but I think Newfies are worse. Also, I have a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier that doesn't drool, but look out for that beard after he's had a drink of water!!

    We've had as many as 5 hounds at a time and I used to foster until Moosie Bear who was our senior boy didn't seem to enjoy the fosters anymore. We always fostered the pups that came into rescue and for some reason they adored Moosie-him not so much once he became 10. Everyone got along well in the pack so hopefully they'll love Benny once they get to know him.

    I love Bassets, have had several and lost them early to cancer. None of mine drooled. The last one was a rescue and she attacked my little Morky, had to return her. I love their smell, it's very distinctive, and I just love it.

    Handsome boy!
    We have a wheatable (wheaten mix), Oh so true! We know when Miya has been in the water bowl! Lol
    In the 90's I had a huge hound mix "Dufus" what an incredibly smart, sweet guy! He was a true gentle giant. And thank goodness a dry mouth. He was well loved by many. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

    Your new fur baby is adorable. We had a drooling Saint Bernard and once they wing their way to your heart, the drooling doesn't matter.
    I don't know how to do that.....YET!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very cute. Two of my grand puppies are rescue boxer basset mixes. Bodies are mostly Bassett with the usual feet. Floppy ears and lomg tails but different looking faces. They are adorable.

    I'm sure they will get on. I had an eight week puppy which due to hospital changed dates had to go into kennels for 2 days with my other 2 dogs within a week of coming home. The kennels put a camera in the pen they were all in and one big basket. The owner was amazed at how they slept together and let little one eat there food even though she was fed by the kennel staff with puppy food. This bond last forever..

    Good luck in the show ring with this cutie. Showing dogs is so much fun but gotten too expensive for us.
