to Basswood 10
hear from people who have bought one (or more) of our puppies.
These letters give
us much pleasure.
Here are a few of
the pictures that have been send to us with extracts from some of the letters.
Please be sure to
identify your own dog by its Basswood name if you write to us -- we can't

Re: Angus (Basswood Derek)
We thought we would let you know how Angus (Basswood Derek) is getting
on. He is now 9 months old and is doing really well. He settled in
quickly with us, toilet trained in flash and is just such a happy, fun
dog. He will do anything for a stick and loves retreiving them from water,
he is actually a very good swimmer especially if there are ducks in the
middle of New Miller Dam which is one of our regular walking locations.
Fortunately he doesnt seem to mind having a shower when we get home
either which is good as most days now he needs one!! Although he will still
walk around or leap over puddles!
We have been going to Kennel Club classes with him and he is already
in silver classes where he is currently the youngest pup, but he loves
going to meet all the other dogs and when we pull up in the carpark he
bounces around so much in the car we struggle to get his lead on before
he charges in to say "Hello" to everyone!! He is a very sociable dog, too
sociable sometimes, especially when its time to leave the park in the morning
and everyone we meet absolutely loves him.
We have taken him to the Dales for a couple of weekends where he scampered
this way and that exploring all the new smells and tastes of cow and sheep
poo (?!), although he is very confused why he cant play with the big white
fluffy dogs (sheep) that are in many of the fields! He has been to Filey
for the day where he loved digging in the sand, chasing frisbees and jumping
the waves and this week he had his first experience of snow. He spent ages
trying to catch the flakes as they fell around him and happily walked around
the park with a massive compacted snowball in his mouth and then searched
for ages when we finally got to throw it.
We are hoping to take him gun dog training in the new year, just to
see how he does and to give him something new to do.
Hope you are all well

Re: Basswood Gino (Buster)
Just a couple of photos of Buster. The first one is with Sadie(Basswood
Athena), who is now 13 laid with him when he first arrived in our home,
and a more recent one with Sadie with not a lot of room on the bed anymore
for both of them! . . . How he has grown into a handsome dog!
He is so good and we are very grateful for our new member of our family.

Re: Poppy (Basswood Flora) and Kaala (Basswood Fedora)
Doesnít time fly. I canít believe that we have had the pups for
3 months already. Poppy & Kaala are now 5 months old and they
are fabulous puppies, We are really enjoying having them. We
were a little apprehensive at first about getting two, but they are great
company for each other. We donít have many plants left in the garden,
as they seem to like eating them. Also they work in as a tag team
to destroy my plastic garden windmills.
They have been attending puppy training school for the past 6 weeks
are are being enrolled for another stint. They are so quick to learn
and very clever.

Re: Basswood Girl (Mia)
Hello Frank and Maureen,
Just to let you know that Basswood Girl, 'the little one', who we have
named Mia, weighed in at 6.7 kilos today. She is absolutely
full of life and very clever and has kept us well and truly on our toes!
Play biting is our biggest challenge, but I think we are getting there!
Wherever we go, we are stopped by people who all comment that
she is a 'little beauty' and she loves all the attention and we are besieged
by visitors wanting to come and see her. She has been to puppy parties
and has regular play dates with our next door neighbour's eighteen month
old working spaniel. She has been out on the lead this last
couple of weeks (not overly impressed with wearing a collar, to start with)
and she starts a training class this Thursday.
One thing we haven't quite managed is to take a good photograph of her,
she is just never till long enough! This is our next project.
Hopefully we will be able to send you one or two shortly. Hope all
is well with you.
Regards Christine and Peter Cross

Re: Basswood Frangrance (Maggie)
Hello Frank - We thought we would let you know how Basswood Fragrance,
who we have called Maggie, is getting on. She has settled into her
new home very well, and is holding her own with the kids! Like her
mother, Mona, Maggie is very placid but full of beans too and enjoys her
walks. Training is coming on well. Everyone says she is a lovely
looking dog, and we agree. She is now part of the family and life
wouldn't be the same without her.
We hope little Gadget has found his new home. [SEE
GADGET'S PICS BELOW!]
Hope you're keep well. Best wishes
Ian, Melanie, Ava, Tom and Maggie
