Cherish your new pet store pup - Stand always by his side. Mend his ills and give him hugs and lots of fun car rides.
Feed him well and let him run to build his body strong. Play with him and give him treats. Love him his whole life long.
You'll soon become his hero. He will not ask you for much. He'll trade his lifelong loyalty for your kind word and touch.
Count him among your blessings, as you are his blessing, too, but then please do just one thing more, When every day is through.
Take time to look into his eyes each night you tuck him in. I bet you'll see reflected there, two other pups like him.
They've never had a family, soft bed, good food, or fun. They live life out in a wire box - and never get to run.
They suffer searing heat at times, at others freezing cold, as weeks and months and years drag by While they are growing old.
So think about his mom and dad who shine there through his eyes, and remember all the mill dogs who are paying with their lives.
If they had ever had a chance, they'd have grown up like him, too, with years of love to give and get before their lives were through.
You'll never see them face to face - Such miracles are rare - But pray for your pup's mom and dad, 'cause someone ought to care...
Don't buy your basset hound over the internet or from a pet store. We can advise you about buying a well bred basset hound from a reputable breeder, and if your heart is set on a puppy, we occasionally get these in rescue also.
