Bassett hound and cat - family pets

8 posts in this topic

I know this may not be appropriate to post on here, but thought I would take a chance.

My wife has had some recent very serious health concerns. One thing highly recommended by several doctors was to get rid of the household pets. Of course this did not go over too well with my 12, 9 and 7 year old kids.

Just want to inform all of you that if by the off chance someone is looking for a very nice, gentle almost purebred Bassett hound, please contact the Watonwan County Humane Society. He is about 5 years old, fixed and the friendliest dog you will find. Yes people hunt varmints with Bassetts, I an sure he would love it. He is wonderful with kids and has never even growled at anyone.

Also if anyone is looking for a white/tan 2 year old fixed female cat call the Humane Society too. She is a gentle little cat and a very good pet, also good with kids.

This is kind of a shock to the family and we would feel better knowing they get a good home. I would also consider it a personal favor from a fellow FM'er to find these animals a home. Post back here if you need any further information.

Adopt from your local animal shelters when you can.

Thanks,

DD

First, I hope your wife's health improves. If your Bassett hasn't been adopted yet my friend will be driving there tomorrow. He took in a "rescue" Bassett years ago he drove all the way to Madison to pick up. He lost his to age last month, and has been searching for one that would "need" him again. Please know the dog will be well taken care of and live a long happy life on the shores of Lake Vermillion.

Sorry to hear about your wife. Adopting animals is very rewarding. I hope your animals find great homes.

I wish your wife great health.

He is now on the HSOforum.

Go to petcompany dot org and his info is on there. We are trying to help the Humane Society as much as possible to get him a new home.

Thanks again,

DD

UPDATE

Well somebody in Robbinsdale got themselves a good Bassett Hound over the weekend.

For anybody in that area of the Metro, he was adopted by a family who does some kind of volunteer work for the school district, and he was approved to come in to the schools and help with some sort of volunteer work. That dog will love it, and we are glad he is going to a good home.

Thanks,

DD

PS: The cat is not up for adoption yet, so anone looking for a offwhite, short hair Siamese-ish fixed declawed cat let me know.

    • I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletch pull something during the "break". That would give that person time to come in and get acclimated to the surroundings. I am sure the players will be having some "skates" along the way, but no organized team activities. They cannot even practice until after 5:00 the day before their first game back! That is why the results are so poor coming out. Its one thing to skate, scrimmage-like, but practice is a completely different animal and I am pretty sure the players are not going to voluntarily "bag skate". I think this is a big night tonight. Go into the break on a high note. Wouldn't be shocked if Kuemper started, but I would expect Dubnyk.  
    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions, religious beliefs, and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
    • Shrimpo's and ratfinkee's, mostly in bright color arrangements with fairly aggressive jigging.  It was a blast!
