Lilly came into rescue after her owner’s life was turned upside down. She is a sweet basset girl of 9 years but she acts more like a 4 year old. She is house trained and has learned how to eat dog food after surviving on people food for a few years. She is very inquisitive and loves to ride in the car. She walks well on a leash. Lilly prefers women or very laid back men but is best suited for a family with no other dogs or small children. She will make some family very happy because she has years of love left to share
Sampson is officially adopted! Congratulations to Sampson on finding your furever family! Here is an update from his adoptive mom on how he is doing.
“Sampson is definitely one of the family. Mom has taught him tricks to catch his treat in mid-air and he MUST say good morning to her immediately after she gets up. We leave him in the house when we are away and he does well. He got mad at us yesterday and decided he could get on the living room couch. When we got home he couldn’t get off by himself. He is allowed on the couch in the den!! (which is lower and he can navigate by himself).
Sleeps on a dog pillow (for the summer) at the foot of my bed and I have kept him to his schedule for feeding – which really works out nice. For winter I want a more substantial bed he can curl up in. What a wimp, goes to bed about 8:30 and gets up only to say goodnight (to Mom) and maybe at 4 am to go outside.
…know that we just love this guy …”

BaRCSE will be walking in the Columbia, SC St. Patrick’s Day parade in Five Points. The parade is one week away, and we are getting excited. We are number 8 on the parade line-up. We will meet at Shandon United Methodist Church at 8 am on the 16th. The address for the church is 3407 Devine St Columbia, SC 29205. We meet in the parking lot on the other side of the street (next to the Exxon station). Dottie and Don Morris have the decorations for the trailer, and the Bush’s, Clancy’s new family, are going to have either a 16 or 18 foot trailer to pull for the pooped pups (and adults). If you are in the area, please join us!
We continue to rebuild the website. All of our dogs’ pages have now been added to the site. You can see our three current foster dogs on Adoptable Dogs, and all of our adopted dogs can be found on Blissful Bassets. If you have any problems using the website or spot an issue, please contact us.
It’s that time again! Time for our annual elections. We need you to vote for officers and board members for 2013-2015. Remember, unlike some rescue organizations every member/volunteer has a vote in our elections. So please exercise your right to vote for our organization’s leadership between now and Sunday, March 17th. Members should have a received an email with the link to vote. If you are a member but are not a member of the Google group, please submit a comment via the contact form, so that we can make you a member of the Google group, and then you can vote.
We are slowly rebuilding our website in its new platform. Currently none of the online applications are available including the membership, adoption, and foster home application. We are working to get them back up, but please be patient. You can download any of the forms from the Documents page. Also, you can contact us through the Contact Us page.
