******************BASSET HOUNDS ON THE BEACH********************

The first time for our hounds on the beach, and they enjoyed it so much!! We traveled to the South Coast of Natal for a show weekend on the 28th and 29th of September and decided to make it a short vacation as well. Our friends from Jonstin kennels joined us on Friday the 27th of Sept with their 3 hounds and one great dane! It was so nice to see 8 hounds and one great dane enjoying the beach so much!! They all had a ball on the beach and in the show-ring!! We stayed at a fantastic little cottage - Kaja vir Baja in Munster. Fully fenced and suited for dogs of all sizes, and a short walk to lovely unspoiled beaches.
