The Resident hound took an immediate dislike to Hollis and tried to make his life very difficult. So he then came to me….feisty healthy and still bald. We have gone to obedience school…because someone needed to learn something and Hollis did inform me that “I” needed to learn.

As fund raisers he has had is own university Hollis Brown University to teach bassets how to be bassets. and recently he has also run for president. Because of him I have also stepped up and take a more active role with in the rescue. Last year at our annual Sweetheart Waddle,
