Blossomhil's Companions

Last updated: March 2018

Occasionally, I may have a pet available to place as a companion pet. 
 
The decision to buy a puppy is a very big one and ramifications are long lasting.  I am very involved with my dogs and as a result really want to get to know a potential buyer.  It is important to me to meet the family in person and get to know each member of the family.
  
I want to know what experiences you have had with a Basset and any pets you have had in the past.  I need to know where the dog will live and if someone will be home or the dog will be left alone.  Will the entire family be involved and if children are involved.
 
There is a very detailed puppy application and photos of the house and yard need to be included.  
-Placement Application -Must Complete
 
-Sukey Shor -Serious Inquiries only!
 

 The puppies that have been placed in show or companion homes have been blessed.
They all enjoy a happy home life with their families.

We had the privilege to be loved and owned by Blossomhil’s Topsfield Sanchu My One and Only, Ozzie. From the moment he joined our family we knew he would have a great and powerful impact. He instantly showed amazing compassion and patience with our young children. His gentle nature and unconditional love helped a little boy come out of his shell and improve his self confidence. He was not only a good companion to the human element of our pack but also to our shorthairs.

He helped to raise a litter of orphaned kittens teaching them to trust dogs. He cautioned newcomers to our home but once introduced welcomed them with exuberance. Ozzie you were a one of a kind basset hound and will forever be in our hearts. I know you’re standing between Spirit and Molly waiting for us with your infinite patience. 

With Love, The Napier Family

As a family with over 20 years experience of owning basset hounds, we can honestly say that our current basset hound Dewey is something truly special.  All our basset hounds were wonderful and very much-loved members of our family, but Dewey has grabbed our hearts on a whole new level. Dewey, who has been a member of our family for over 3 years is a very special basset hound.  Aside from being a gorgeous tri-colored hound, Dewey has never had eye, ear, skin or stomach issues that are common in the breed. He is healthy and loves to walk, run, chase bugs, and play with any dog of any size. He doesn’t chew on anything but his toys and surprisingly doesn’t “counter surf” or steal food. I must admit, he was a pain when it came to training him to pee outside, but he finally learned.  

Dewey genuinely loves people and immediately transfers his love and affections to anyone willing to lean down to give him a rub. If he had it his way, Dewey’s life would be complete if every moment was either going for a walk, or curled up next to us. He is a constant source of love and laughter in our home. We can’t thank Sukey enough for the privilege of raising Dewey.

Poppy has a loving, playful, perfect disposition. She is extremely intelligent and has brought great joy to our lives. Strangers stop us on the street  to tell us how beautiful she is. We are very lucky that she came to live with us.  Sukey Shor of Blossomhil Kennels not only puts extra love into the raising of her litters, but she continues to support her puppies new owners with excellent advice.

Pippi

When we first met Pippi, we thought she was a quiet, shy little puppy; after all, she was the smallest girl in the litter. Pippi is now 5 and boy were we wrong. Her personality is so much bigger than that shy little pup we met on that summer day. Pippi has many wonderful characteristics. However; our all time favorite is how loving she is. Why sit on a dog bed when there is a comfortable lap nearby? We have been told by Sukey, that she loved sleeping with her when she was little. That has not changed. While Pippi is not picky on whose lap she lays on, she also makes an excellent blanket on cold nights.

Pippi loves going for walks. Her favorite place is the beach and she loves to show off how nimble she is when she runs like a bee has bit her in the bum, as she takes off in a mad dash. One thing Pippi is not fond of is the water. She will avoid getting close to the ocean at all costs and even gives me the eye when she has to go out in the rain to do her business. Pippi loves people, and will play tug of war for hours if you are wiling. She also is addicted to her toys, the soft plush kind and will carry them around all over the house. Its not uncommon to see 8 plush toys hoarded in her bed. 

Pippi is wonderful to other dogs as well. She recently has a new mate, who she has shown endless affection and patience with and proven what a good mom she can be. In addition to that she has stood by her old companion when they catch some rays in the sun.
We love Pippi and look forward to the day we welcome another Blossomhil basset into our home!

Annabelle
Blossomhil's Topsfield Sanchu My Fair Lady

Annabelle is the happiest of bassets.  Hers is a carefree heart full of butterflies and rainbows.  She lives on a family farm in Washington State where she is the self appointed taste tester.  She adores rummaging in all the animals’ feed. Of course, she thinks she is trying it out to be sure it is good enough for everyone.  A true farm dog she is protective and curious.  She happily gets a long with everyone from cats and dogs to chickens, llamas and pigs with one notable exception - Frank, the resident turkey, who holds a grudge over an exuberant tail feather sniffing incident.

Unbeknownst to Annabelle, he had a very different code of etiquette when it came to his tail feathers being examined.  But Annabelle is no fool and carefully circumvents the king of the barnyard.
Annabelle is as gorgeous as she is friendly.  She adores stomping through puddles, chasing away ravens and playing in the snow but is always ready to snuggle up on the couch by a warm fire for a good movie.  A little bit like a private school girl on a public school yard, she lives up to her name “My Fair Lady”.  She has bloomed into a wonderful girl and gives her family joy and happiness every day.

Then came Sadie. What can I say about this most special girl? She fit right in with our other two dogs like she has been here the whole time! She will jump up on the couch where I'm sitting and curl up beside me with her head in my lap. These dogs are our babies! They are spoiled (because we believe dogs were put here to love and spoil) and loved and kissed and bellies rubbed every day! I am talking how much we give to them. But they give way more to us! They give unconditional love, snuggles, kisses, and so much fun! They are the most beautiful and cutest dogs at the same time! Their personalities make us laugh and smile every single day! I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world! They are our children... Family!!​

My family and I have three Basset Hounds. Two are from Sukey Shore. Our oldest is named Angel. We actually saved her from a family that neglected her. She was such a sweet baby and so incredibly grateful to us. She blended into our family immediately. She was lovable and also rambunctious and played with the kids! So when we were ready to adopt another dog we knew we wanted another Basset Hound. I found Sukey's name through some phone calls while looking for a puppy to adopt. We adopted a little boy named Briggs. Probably one of the most rambunctious of all the pups. But is definitely the most sweet and lovable. He's a snuggler and follows the Basset Hound way and loves his belly rubbed! Then came Sadie. What can I say about this most special girl? She fit right in with our other two dogs like she has been here the whole time! She will jump up on the couch where I'm sitting and curl up beside me with her head in my lap. These dogs are our babies! They are spoiled ( because we believe dogs were put here to love and spoil) and loved and kissed and bellies rubbed every day! I am talking how much we give to them. But they give way more to us! They give unconditional love, snuggles, kisses, and so much fun! They are the most beautiful and cutest dogs at the same time!

I was drawn to Millie from the time she was a puppy.  I helped raise Dolly’s litter and the two just bonded from the beginning. 
We do everything together,  including kayaking, puppy sitting, long walks and hikes.  People have said that when you see me you will see Millie. 

Millie has a wonderful temperament and plays with everyone. She loves her Aussie friends and shows them who rules the roost. When Millie visits Sukey or sees her at shows, Sukey can hear her calling her from a distance.
