Just wanted to let you know we made it home just fine. The puppy did very well. We named him “Jerry” . Our labrador, Katie, is doing very well with him. He already follows her up the ramp to our deck (still working on going down). Our vet was pretty impressed with him and said he was a very nice puppy. He weighs 6 pounds 14 ounces. Wish we could have spent a little more time visiting with you. You have a very nice place. Roger and I along with our vet will highly recommend you if we hear of someone looking for a basset. Thanks so much. We will keep in touch.
