Mrs F Parkes
- Basset Hound
We here at Bessalin Bassets have three generations of Bassets in the household at the moment, we have five Bassets in total and a (long suffering!) Border Collie called Marley, a couple of cats and a rather plump Duck that often plods about after the dogs.
You can find us at our home which is about 5 miles from the picturesque city of Ely in Cambridgeshire where the dogs have almost an acre of garden to run around in.
Our dogs are family pets along with a couple of them being show dogs with long illustrious pedigrees, all our dogs are fed a raw meat diet.
Many of our owners post updates of their puppy’s progress on Facebook even years later! Some actually meet up for a ‘Basset Waddle’ now and then so the siblings can keep in touch! I’m more than happy to provide a link to the relevant page for anyone who’d like to contact me and you’re more than welcome to ask the owners any questions regarding their dealings with Bessalin Bassets.
The Bessalin name derives from our first basset “Bessie” who we sadly lost at only 4 years old. From Bessie’s Lineage her one and only litter we kept Larry.
Bessalin Lord Lary (Larry)
Definitely a mummy’s boy, with a wonderful, sweet natured temperament who has passed these qualities on to his offspring.
Has done well at champ show level achieving a placing at Crufts in 2012
Cosie Rosie at Sarric (Rosie)
Rosie is an extremely funny, talkative, dominant blanket back and most definitely the boss. She's always the one to start the baying chorus off.
Although now retired from breeding, the other Bassets treat her as if she's a Roman Goddess - washing her face, ears and armpits, yuck!
Bessalins Black Orchid (Raven)
Raven is Larry and Rosies daughter the only female from a litter of 9.
At just 6 months and her first show she started her career by placing best puppy bitch and qualifying for Crufts. Unfortunately showing was not for her and she's only really happy at home with her famiy.
Bessalin Betalate Thanneva (Heidi)
We were honoured to use Woferlow Border Patrol (Stanley) with Raven who produced a lovely litter in Dec 2013 of which we have kept the very crazy and clever Heidi. Still new to showing and needing to mature we excitedly await to see how her show career will pan out.
