Sampson on the other hand wavered between wanting up on our laps like the other dogs were doing or flirting with the nice young lady in front of him that thought he was the sweetest boy ever!
Some of these pictures you should really blow up just to understand the level of devotion and enthusiasm this breed and the cause generates. I mean who else would be crazy, I mean devoted, enough to sit outside in a storm complete with thunder and lightening with it raining so hard it was blowing in under the tarps side ways!
In this picture, behind the lattice work fence, were quite a number of bassets for fostering or adoption...
There were quite a few attendees around a hundred bassets complete with owners attended, which was down from last year as there were around 200 then. Still there were attendees from as far away as LA, California and Florida, as well as New York, Ohio, Kentucky, PA, and New Jersey.
The games consisted of the longest biscuit toss and catch, the fastest basset to cross to the finish line in response to the owners' call to come ( I know, quit laughing!), yep this one got a little side tracked...
the cutest basset bum contest, the most original hat contest, and the cutest costume contest.
After this last picture, my batteries died, but I hope you at least caught a glimpse of some of the fun we had even though the weather was not at it's best. I hope maybe some other basset owners might mark it on their calendar to plan to attend next year! It would be neat to meet up with some of you in person, we are definitely planning on going again.
