Lady Emma Ann

Emma is my third Basset, so you KNOW I like them! I went to pick up Emma on April 21, 2012, in Nice from the foster, Laurie Keene. Emma was so well-behaved from the beginning. The first time I took her for a walk, she heeled! (I had seen this demonstrated in various obedience classes over the years, but NEVER had a dog that would do it!) Recently Howard, Vernon McNamee's male Basset, stayed with us for a month while Vernon was in Brazil and the two dogs had a good time together. Bassets are such loveable, wonderful dogs and Emma is the best one yet! She did do a little counter-surfing at first so she soon trained us to keep things back from the edge of the counter! Just am so happy that I looked at Pet Finders and from there to GGBR to Emma! I feel so lucky to have her. She makes every day a delight!
