Favorite things about your Basset (i.e., goofy grin, silly bark/howl, counter-surfer):
Daisy (renamed from Mazie) is a very sweet girl with expressive eyes. She loves to snuggle and be near her people. She of course also loves snacks and does what looks like a tap dance whenever a treat is nearby.
Challenges you faced and overcame:
Daisy was afraid of a lot of things when she first arrived, including dog toys which she is beginning to warm up to, especially kongs filled with peanut butter. She is not always sure how to interact when meeting new dogs, but this is getting better too. She gets along well with our other dog, Q, and she loves playing with my parent’s Australian shepherd.
How do other people and animals react to your Basset?
Daisy loves meeting new people, and most people seem eager to meet her as well. We’ve actually had cars stop driving just to comment on what a beautiful dog she is.
What do you like to do with your Basset?
Daisy is a great snuggler, but she also loves going on walks which is great since my husband and I enjoy hiking. We recently took her on a camping/hiking trip to Shenandoah, and she seemed to have a great time.
