We lost our six year old Basset to her habit of ingesting things of interest on her walks to the park,. Someone had left a flip top lid on the ground and she got to it before we could get to her. We lost her in a few hours. It was devastating. Our home was quiet and our hearts very heavy. One day we contacted the GGBR and met with some of the most devoted pet lovers. After a few weeks they called and said they had a Basset being surrendered and would we be interested. A few days later we met Theo at a foster home along with his mistress. My heart went out to her and I admired her for accepting that sometimes you gave to make tough choices. She had Theo as a pup and now things in her home had changed and because of her love she was surrendering him to hopefully a good home. Theo was quite a handsome fellow and you could see he had been loved and cared for. We took him home with us to see if we could all be happy together. It has been a perfect match. He loves the grandchildren, gets along with the cats, loves vacations and is getting used to walks! We thank the family who surrendered Theo for giving us a chance to share our life with this wonderful friend. ****Jim and Sharon
