I really wanted to quickly share this story as a reminder of two of our dogs, particularly since a couple of our friends have recently lost a basset, it’s a sad one though!
My grandparents had a couple of Basset Hounds about 30 years ago, a mother and daughter called Ebbie & Alice who were inseparable to the point where, when the mother, Ebbie passed away Alice could not cope without her and passed away just a month afterwards. It’s amazing how family relations can just be as strong and powerful with dogs as well as humans.

Got a couple of exciting projects coming up which I’m really excited about in the next few weeks.
Firstly, I’m doing my first video interview with Marina Scott, Assistant Editor of Dog World with help from the British Independent Producer Graham Inman. Interview should be released in the next couple of weeks once everything is edited and ready to go.
Additionally, the Alfie’s Law Foundation charity is being launched on the 1st of May. The charity fights for some amazing causes, to find out more about it, have a look at my blog post here.
After that I’ll be stewarding Discover Dogs at the London Pet Show (11th-12th May) and looking after all the breed stands. No doubt I’ll be bringing a camera and find some exciting things to blog about!
Is anyone going to be there? What are you going there for?
My third interview involves David Hibbert, Chairman of the Retired WM (West Midlands) Police Dog Benevolent Fund. The organisation has recently been set up and the sole purpose is to improve the lives of retired Police Dogs. Watching the police dogs performance at Crufts and the amazing work they do for the public in all services from Public order enforcement dogs, Tracking Dogs (Finding missing persons or objects), Cadaver-sniffing dogs (Detecting decomposing bodies) and Illicit substance detection dogs (Drug Dogs) there is truly no limit to a dogs ability to work and they deserve our support!
