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.

Glad to hear it Double D. Sounds like he will love it as much as the kids will.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
