charlie my best friend
We got our Basset when he was 10 weeks old from a breeder in Bradford. I have always wanted one from I was a child when a friend had one who I loved.
Well Charlie.........he is the best thing that has ever happened to us! He is so loveable and funny and follows me everywhere I go.
He was very easy to train in fact he has never since we brought him home had an accident in the house, this must be down to the breeders training him. He never wanders off when off his lead and likes to stay close by keeping his eye on me all the time. He is a big chunk of a Basset and loves to sleep on my knee. He is great fun to have around the house and always makes me smile and laugh! I don't think now I could ever be without a Basset. He is only 4 and I hope he has a great number of years left with us.
I often think about getting another Basset as I love them so much and so Charlie can have a friend but he is a bit nervous around dogs. I am unsure why and do not know of any reason for this other than I am sure he thinks he is human. He wonders what he has in common with other dogs as I'm sure he thinks he has two legs and should be wearing clothes.
He sleeps at the end of our bed and every morning when he wakes he jumps on our bed and tries to push us out so we get up with him. Anyone thinking of getting a Basset definitely should. He really is the best dog we have ever had and only ever Bassets for us in the future.
