Magic Merlin here ,I love all the fuss I get off everyone that walks by me -not as much as I used to when I was tiny - but I can still stop the traffic at 500 paces, then I stand & pose . I like the showing I suppose mom always tells me I'm the best but i dont like not being called up for a rosette they're so munchy delicious - not that I can get hold of them that often they're up on a pinboard. My birthday is 24th June and I was born in 1998 so i'm nearly a veteran altho I act like a baby. I like lots of belly rubs and cuddles ,socks ,underwear, bonio's, and chasing my dumbell, my frisbee or a sock ,I won't chase a ball though My litter sister Rosie came here with me and we loved to play fight then snuggle up warm together.Sadly Rosie was taken ill and went to Rainbow Bridge March 13 2003, I still miss her. See my pix of me standing and being cute told you I was lovely didn't I ?


In the Ring I won a Best Puppy in Show at 7 months under Miss Jean Lanning; Best In Show at Stratford upon Avon show under Mrs Ann Foxwell; and At The Basset Hound Club March 2003 I also Won Best In Show under Mrs Linda Skerritt, I have my Stud Book Number and am consistently placed at Open & Champ shows which includes a third placing at Crufts this year under Mr Ron White. I also gained my KC Good Citizen Dog Bronze Award.

This is the Seven Seas Pick of the Litter Competition 1999- Merlin came 3rd in the Hound Group and had a lovely day out and met Peter Purves in the bargain

Birmingham National at the NEC April 2000 our beauty wasn't recognised this time but we did get 3rd in the Easter Bonnet Competition so we took some pix anyway Helen with Merlin & David with Rosie
