BHUPESH BASIL (BOO)

BHUPESH BASIL (BOO)

by Chris & Jane Cooper

In the New Year we decided the time was right to find a companion for Krishna.

A puppy wasn't an option so we put the feelers out for a rescue hound. We did a lot of searching but with no luck. However knowing exactly what we were looking for, Sue Sampson came to our aid.

He had been named Basil and was about two years old.

He had no background history and was being cared for in a foster home in Hull.

Although we were due to go on holiday the weekend he was being picked up,

Sue and Terry very kindly looked after him for a week until we were able to meet him. We immediately knew he was right for us and renamed him Bhupesh Basil.

He is very affectionate, friendly and inquisitive. He loves his walks especially if he is way out front and leading the way.

It’s been seven months now since we bought him home and cannot imagine not having him with us.

For anyone thinking of owning a Basset Hound we would highly recommend they go to Basset Hound Welfare.

Thank you, Sue and Terry, for finding us such a lovely boy.

(Ed: Bhupesh is an Indian boys’ name which means ‘Lord of Earth’; and ‘Basil’ means ‘crazy hotel owner’)
