Nothing Like A Bassett



My bassett, Abby, passed away last year at age 3 so I was very happy to find this place. I miss you Abby.
Go here.



"Spay Day USA is an annual event held the last Tuesday of February.
This year it falls on Feb. 26. Created by the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) in 1995, Spay Day USA became a program of The Humane Society of the United States when the two combined operations in 2006.

Spay Day USA is America’s first and only national day of action to promote the spaying or neutering of pets. During Spay Day, veterinarians, animal welfare professionals, businesses and concerned
citizens join forces nationwide to spay or neuter as many animals as possible, while promoting spay/neuter as an essential component of
good pet health. It’s the effective and humane means of decreasing the euthanasia of homeless animals in shelters."

Sorry about your Bassett, "Abby." The link to pictures of Bassett Hounds was fantastic. They are beautiful traditional dogs with wonderful colorings and beseeching eyes. Hugs to you.

Spaying pets is very important. It is a true responsibility for all pet owners unless you are a bona fide breeder.

Friends of ours had a sweet basset named Sierra. She was very much a people dog.
