We adopted Bessie on St. Patrick’s day of 2013. She was a skinny and timid little girl. Well let me tell you she has filled out (but no too much) and chock full of piss and vinegar. She can jump higher than any basset should. She sings opera with my mother and loves deer hunting (but she is not real good at it) so far it’s deer-100, Bessie-0. We love our Bessie Boopster thank you for a great match.
