DaveinCoalinga, Sorry to hear about your Basset..............ours was just diagnosed as diabetic. He's getting 2 shots a day and I've been testing his blood(I am also diabetic). He is AWESOME and I cannot imagine having him around!!!!
I have always liked a doberman, but my the way my house is set on my lot I don't really have an ideal situation for one. My wife has a miniture dachsund which I dont llike due to its moronic personality. Nothing wrong with the breed, just this fool. I will probably go with a bassett again.
