Jake & Dru's first litter have now all gone to their new homes, they have all settled in there has been the odd sleepless night while they settled in to their new surroundings but apart from that everyone is doing well . We hope to keep you updated on how the puppies are doing with new photo's of them as they grow up.

....has gone to an experienced basset home, and to a wonderful couple who already have an elderly basset called Rudy. He wasn't very impressed to start off with, having this young whipper snapper around but, as you can see from the photos he is good friends with Bilbo now..

Bilbo's new owners have decided to have a go at showing him (me doing the handling), so he will be making his show debut later in the year with his sister Houndsbay Gertrude (Gertie for short).

....is also going to live with experienced basset owners who not so long ago lost their two old girls, so felt enough time had elapsed for them to think about having a basset again.

Daisy will be living in a beautiful seaside village in Scotland, her new owners only live a few yards from a beautiful beach, so when she is bigger she will be enjoying lovely long walks. She will also be going on holiday to the beautiful Highlands of Scotland, so we are hoping to get some great photos of her (plus the scenery!).

Houndsbay Othello (Lewis)....

....went to a first time basset home (we all have to start somewhere!). They are a lovely family who had done their research on the breed, so we felt happy they could offer him a good home. As with all our puppies we will be on hand to give advice and help if needed. Lewis has settled in very well, and has already become a firm member of the family.

We've had a couple of photos from Lewis's family, and he's is doing really well and as you can see. He certainly has turned into a very handsome young man.

20/12/2005 - Lewis is doing fine, his owners tell us he just loves his food!!! He would have 6 meals a day if he was allowed, sounds like a typical basset.

He isn't so keen on his walks though, especially when its raining, but enjoys them when all the family go with him. He is into everything and is always on the look out to see if he can get involved in something. In general he is happy and healthy and a very big part of his new family.

20/06/2006 - We received 2 new photos of Lewis today, he has certainly grown into a very handsome Basset and his colouring is quite unusual...he apparently hates the rain. He loves playing football with the younger members of his family and according to his owners has excellent ball control so watch out Beckham & Rooney!!!

04/06/2012 - We received some sad news from Lewis' owners, he passed away in early 2012 after a short and aggressive illness.

Houndsbay Horatio (Harvey) & Houndsbay Ophelia (Phoebe)....

....went to a home experienced with bassets.. they are doing really well in fact thriving, on their first visit to the vets Harvey weighed in at 8.8 kg and Phoebe weighed in at 7.7 kg! Harvey apparently is a real gentleman and has won the heart of the resident basset Rosie. Phoebe is apparently quite a tear away but Rosie has taken her under her wing and they are now firm friends.

Houndsbay Yorick (Freddie)....

....this little man will always have a special place in our heart, it was very hard to let him go to his new home even though we knew he was going to be very much loved and have a new basset friend called Bertie who happens to be his half brother! At the age of around 6 weeks old he developed a condition called 'Juvenile Cellulitis' more commonly know as 'puppy strangles' See photo) this condition is to do with the puppies immune system basically not coping as well as it should and their little faces become very swollen as do their glands and it is very unpleasant and upsetting to see them this way, as you just feel so helpless as you are waiting for the treatment to work. Although the puppies continue to be ok in themselves and continue to eat their little faces become sore with horrible pustules. Vets do not know a great deal about this condition or what really causes it and why usually only one puppy seems to come down with it, the treatment is antibiotics and Cortico Steroids. The puppies make a full recovery and go on to lead a normal happy life..We have had some wonderful photo's of Freddie since he went to his new home and as you can see he is very happy.

Houndsbay Beatrice (Isabel)....

....went to live in London. She has settled in very well and has a new friend Tallulah, who was an only basset so was at first not so keen, but has gradually come round and now they are great friends. I have been told by Isabel's new owners she snuggles up with them at night time in bed! So, it sounds as though this little girl is going to be very spoilt.
