I’m thinking about creating a page specifically about the breed of dog we have (Basset Fauve de Bretagne). It’s a rare French breed and there isn’t much info on the web for this one.
Cooper is a doll (although sometimes destructive when he gets bored), and it’s a good excuse to put tons of pictures of him up on Cootiehog. The problem is – since there is so little info out there about the breed, how on earth am *I* suppose to come up with the “definitive” page on Basset Fauves?
All right, go ahead and make fun of me. I know I’m “The Planner Not the Doer” – but this is an easy thing to do. Right?
Update in June 2004: It has come to my attention that this dog is no longer bred in the U.S. I did a search to find breeders and while a couple potential breeder names came up, subsequent calls to find more details came up empty. As far as I know, if anyone in the US wishes to get a Basset Fauve de Bretagne, they’ll have to get one from abroad and go through the quarantine issue for several months before getting the dog shipped to the US. Very expensive.
