In Defense of Well-bred Dogs

An excellent article by a long time basset hound breeder that appeared in the AKC Gazette.

"Dedicated breeders work to produce healthy, well-adjusted, quality puppies because these puppies become the foundation for our next generation and for the breed’s future."

Jim Self

Tuba Palyer

Jim is a long time member of the BHCSC. Over the years he has donated time and CDs of his music to the club. One CD, Basset Hound Blues, stands out as one we can recommend to Basset Hound lovers with lead vocalist Stanley the Basset Hound.

Besides the Basset Hound Blues CD, the My America CD has a tune called "When Juba Plays the Fluba" in Aruba that features his howling basset hound. Several of the other CDs including the latest Christmas CD have Basset Hound howls as the tag ending to the CD. Jim's record label is Basset Hound and his music room at home is Basset Hall (of course).

Jim has  influenced a lot of other tuba players all over the world who now have basset hounds--it's becoming the official breed of tuba players.

Renee is a long time member of the BHCSC. Over the years she has donated time and her artistic talent to the club. Most of the garments the club has offered over the years were Renee Bane designs. She has set up her booth for many uears at our Basset Hound Picnic.

The BHU is dedicated to preserving our breed's past legacies and future experiences by providing practical home-study education programs in all areas of interest to Basset Hound fanciers and in so doing, help carry forth the mission of the Basset Hound Club of America.

This is a very extensive collection of videos, online books and actual courses that anyone can take advantage of. The BHU materials cover almost every subject immaginable related to Basset Hounds and even other breeds. Previously these materials were only available for purchase in print and on DVD.  The fact that these are now available through the BHCA and the AKC is amazing.
