Diane Morgan tells new "basseteers" everything we need to know about the breed and how, specifically, to make the family basset happy & healthy. This is the definitive (and funny - like the breed it boasts, roasts, and toasts) Basset book.
Are we having fun yet? Stay tuned for more tales of me & my baby basset, Lucy Inda Sky. /TundraVision, Amazon Reviewer
