What a man, what a man, what a mighty fine man!

Howllo fellow hound lovers: This story is really cute…. Little One, was introduced yesterday, valentine’s day, to the ladies. He brought each one a huge ice shaped heart filled with fish. Wow, this guy is smooth!


Little One!

Call it a match made in Ohio. On Valentine’s Day, the Cincinnati Zoo’s two available female polar bears, seven-year-old “Berit” and eight-year-old “Rizzo,” will hopefully meet the bear of their dreams 17-year-old “Little One” from the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Little One’s move to Cincinnati last month came just as federal officials considered adding polar bears to the country’s threatened species list.

The date was set up by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ Polar Bear Species Survival Plan (SSP), which acts like an online dating service that places polar bears at accredited zoos in the United States. However, the Polar Bear SSP is less interested in playing matchmaker based on superficial qualities such as looks, personality and income and more interested in pairing polar bears together based on genetics, age and biology.

It has been 18 years since the last time the Cincinnati Zoo celebrated the birth of polar bear cubs. Polar bears generally breed in the spring and give birth in late fall, which means Cincinnati Zoo visitors could see polar cubs as early as spring of 2008.

You know we will follow this story for you here at bassethoundtown.com

Good Luck with Ladies, Little One! You are a handsome fellow!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Howllo: My Name is Tommie and I dream of being King of the Suncoast Sweetheart Waddle in Feb. I will be at the waddle with my Mommy, Marty both days. I will be greeting my public while showing my benevolent nature. You can help make my dream come true by clicking on my link at the top of this post. It is my fund raising page and I have a goal. Please go look at it and see how much I have raised. Also, can you please send it to anyone who you think can help? I know I make Mommy Marty proud every day, but I want to make her prouder! That is her and me having a snooze. My Mommy is the one that helps all the funny looking hounds with wheels attached to them. They roll into our lives and walk out leaping into someone elses. Thank you so much for giving. Your, soon to be, King Tommie…Hopefully! Thanks Chaps and Emma for letting me take over your Mom’s blog this weekend. Big slobber kisses and lots of drool, Love Tommie!
