Newton ~ A Basset Tale..yes pun intended













This is one of our bassets, our youngest one, Newton...named after Sir Isaac. Today is his birthday. On the left, the full grown boy of 3 years. On the right, typical basset puppy sitting posture at 8 weeks! He's still just as cute and sweet today and every inch a puppy!

While this post isn't related to my glass work, he is an integral part of my work as he does keep me company while I'm in the studio. :)

And his parents are pretty gorgeous too....both are Champions. His Dad is Expo, on the left, and his mom is Riva (she's known as Red). I sure do love bassets. My aaaawwww moment of the day.

He's cute! As a fellow Trekkie is the best bit about the new Enterprise series, Archers dog Porthos? lol :)
Is that his refined look, I bet he's thinking look mum I look so regal and I'm not even trying!

Thanks Nicola. I find bassets can look very regal.

Hi Sophie...for me, nothing is quite as adorable as a basset hound.

Hey Tracey...I get to enjoy playing with that precious guy every day.

Oh Sheila, of course you can paint his puppy picture. Share with the rest of us when it is complete! :)

What would we do without our pups, our companions, our faithful little tail-wagging loves. I enjoyed the photos.

Awww, how cute he is! My cat keeps me company under my work desk while I make my stuff. Pets become such a treasured part of our families.
