I've found that I really enjoy writing, so much so that I want to share more than what I write with/for my basset rescue. Here I am starting my very own blog to share my views on rescue, basset hounds and life in general. I always write from my heart and will tell you all like it is...you can trust in that.
If you don't know me, I volunteer for ABC Basset Rescue in NY. I have been volunteering with the group for only a short time...since May of 2012. In this time, I have been the volunteer coordinator and am currently am the Marketing/Follow-up Coordinator. The Marketing/Follow-up position is really where I am meant to be. I enjoy doing it very much. I also write for the group's blog and write the Perfect Match Monday stories that are posted on the ABC Facebook page every week. I volunteer some my time to help out with The Slobber Shoppe (the groups online store at www.theslobbershoppe.com) and any event that I can; including the ABC Golf Tournament and our annual Basset Blast. My husband, John and I, have fostered 10 basset hounds since April of 2012. John is ABC's Intake Coordinator as well and I help him out with that where and when I can. I am not bragging by any means and I don't mean for it to sound like I am. I am just sharing those things that I try to help out with. I have made a choice to use some of my time to help ABC. I don't get paid any money nor would I take money (a volunteer position is just that...volunteer). My pay is the happy stories of bassets enjoying their forever homes and the smiles on the faces of their parents when they come home to be greeted by a grateful hound.
John and I have 3 rescued basset hounds that we have adopted in the last year. Cooper is our 3 year old red & white hound, Charlie is our grumpy 8 year old hound and Pumpkin is our 2 year old basset mix (we think she's about 1/4 basset hound lol).
I want everyone who reads this blog to read the following statement I have prepared to make sure there is NO CONFUSION.
