Bowzer - the greatest Basset EVER
(Cedar Rapids, IA, USA)
Our beloved son, Bowzer, is 11 years old and we can't imagine life without him. He has been the best companion we have ever had. He is our first basset but won't be the last. He loves to sing (howl) Happy Birthday and Who Let The Dogs Out. His favorite thing to do is tear wrapping paper at holiday time.
If considering a basset hound, I highly recommend it. However, do spend time cleaning the ears! That is the only problem we have had with Bowzer, his right ear is always infected.
I have to constantly remind myself to cherish his days instead of worrying about life without him. He brings our family more joy than we could ever imagine.
