Arrival Story:
We contacted the High Country Basset Rescue and after a few weeks of waiting, we recieved a call that there was a Basset for us. The people there are very nice, and we couldn't be happier.

Walter is such a charactor ;-) He gets into everything his strong nose smells, especially trash cans. He is also a really happy dog, if you look at the pictures posted, almost all of them you can see his tail is blurred from wagging. Recently he has been trying to climb up the pecking order. He wanted to be the boss of his female owner. :-) When his alpha male owner was gone, he would growl and nip at her, and she would run away giggling, but also a little scared. He picked up on the fear and saw a grand oportunity for advancement. She puts him in his place with firm words. like, "I love you too Waltie", followed buy a strong physical reaction -- a big hug :-) This lasted a couple of weeks, and it was fairly comical because of Walter's bravado. He also likes to attack unsuspecting bananas, usually the ones set down on the counter for just a second. His only fear is a much smaller, but much fiercer Basset,his cousin Abigail, who likes to lay, waiting to attack him, from under low objects, like beds and mini trampolines :-)
