About Basil

Basil was my first Golden. He joined Mitzi, my pomeranian, and I in June of 1985. From the time he flew up to me from Arizona, he was special. Before he joined me, Basil had lived in three different homes by the time he was a year old. He was then given to me by a friend who could not keep him. He needed lots of love, care and socialization, which I was happy and able to give him.

Basil and I worked on obedience to help build his confidence. He loved competing in the ring for his CD title. He loved to hunt, and he loved to just hang out with mom. When Basil was called, he would wrinkle up his lip and smile at you as he came to you, tail wagging.

He lived with Mitzi, my first dog, and Ginger, my cat. When Mitzi passed away we added Tanner to the family, and they became best friends. They bonded like two peas in a pod!

Basil lived to the golden age of 14 years and I will always miss him..
