Benoit's Hoopy-Hutch was
never a show dog nor a obedience dog. He was sold a puppy to a family
"Valde" was born: 19.June 1991
who called him Valde. They loved him very much, but when he was about 7 years old he was
of a new home. He found that home back with us, and became soon a big part of our lives.
his place in our Basset pack as the much respected "grumpy old man". Being the
only dog in a family
for most of his life, it was never hard for him to settle in, but he had his own ideas and
no one could
ever change that. So we never demanded much of him, and in fact there was really not much
to, as he was fairly well behaved. He was a sweet and loving boy, who only made a fuss
youngsters disturbed his sleep. Then the "lion" in him woke - and they soon
learned, that even though
this "lion" do not bite, better take care!! For Valde being a part of a pack,
meant being near some sweet
and lovely girls - and that part of live he really enjoyed.
Valde as 10 years old.
