How my Basset named Gordon brings the best out of eveyone

I have wanted a Basset all my life and at the age of 26, little hope of even finding one, I came home after work and my girlfriend surprised me with this little guy. Only 1 month after giving up a 2 year search for one he was a dream come true and the first time I had ever seen one with my own eyes.

He brings the best out of me and is a real show stopper when we go for a walk. People always look and smile, want to pat him all the way to extremes of just grabbing him off us, offering money for a picture with him. One time we were at a spring fair and stopped and got him a plain ice cone and we ended up with a crowd of people, like we were the main act or something. Gordon loved it.

Well that's a bit about my boy Gordon.

p.s. have recently found a group of amazing people in UK who help unlucky bassets who need help. The site is Basset Hound welfare. They are people who inspire me.

Absolutely adorable...

I can see how he's a show stopper. Love how you dressed him up. Surprised that he'll stand for that.

Years ago, I tried to dress my Basset Hound up for Halloween. I thought it would be great fun. But when I finally got him all dressed (it was just a fun Hawaiian shirt), he just stood there with his head down looking so unhappy and humiliated that I had to take it off. (lol)

Glad you finally found the dog that you've always wanted. Enjoy!
