About Me

I am a "Basset Fauve de Bretagne" (I know,difficult to say at first!)and my birthday is April 1st 2009. My new parents collected me on June 7th from Wiltshire and I came to live in Horsforth,Leeds.I hope you check in often to see my photos, and read all about my adventures/misadventures!(My little brother,Henri, joined the pack in March 2012)

Hello again,blogger friends!
I have just been checking over the comments you've all been sending me over the last few years and realised that I hadn't thanked you all properly!
. I should be wearing the "Collar of Shame" -most definitely!(watch the film "Up" and you'll know what I mean!!)
You've said such lovely things to me and all I can do is send huge woofs,licks and snuffles....you all deserve for me to jump up and give you the biggest and bounciest fauve greeting ever!
Thank you all SO much...in return I promise to work my paws to the bone and keep up with my regular blogs this year....well...... Henry (my new brother!) won't be able to even REACH the computer for ages,so I'll keep you all posted about HIS adventures,too!
Special thanks to my dog-mother,Liz.(I can't wait to see you and dog-dad Bruce later this year.)
I promise to look after Henry as best I can and report back to you on how well he's behaving(misbehaving!)
Of course,I'm the grown up sensible one now,so I shall show him the ropes ....not sure what mum meant when she caught me on the BACK of the sofa earlier and said something about me having so many beds and why would I need to get up THERE!.. humans...they just don't get that we LIKE being high up so that we can keep an eye on everything!
See what I have to put up with???
woofs,licks and scruffles from this crazy hound!

My brother "Henry"!

Meet " Henry " - my new brother!

You know I'm always saying how we hounds LOVE company? Well...finally everyone listened to me and decided that ....now I'm nearly three years old and quite grown up(!!??) it would be the right time for me to have my very own fauve brother!

Four weeks ago, Mum and dad went to visit Liz and Bruce in Wiltshire (my first ever family) and Great Aunt Clementine, who'd had six beautiful puppies four weeks earlier.They didn't take me,as they said there would be too much "puppy gazing" going on and I'd be too giddy - as if!!

Of course, they fell in love with them all,but aunty Liz and uncle Bruce helped mum and dad choose my brother/second cousin!

They went back last Sunday to get to know the puppies a bit more and enjoy extra puppy cuddles - -

When they got back they told me all about Henry!

He's coming to live with us in THREE weeks!(March 4th)

Will I be ready?Where will he sleep? Will he want to eat my food?

I promise to try and answer all these questions AND to post LOTS of photos of the two of us (might need to ask mum to help out !) and tell you all about our first meeting.

Must go now and check out all the old toys which I'm going to let Henry have ...well...maybe!!
