I came across Jon Buscall and Kennel Björkwood through Twitter. Jon is a Basset Hound breeder in Sweden, and I am currently arranging a good time to interview him for DogCast Radio. Jon has lots of interesting insights into being a dog breeder, and of course we are often told that the Swedish Kennel Club is a great role model for any Kennel Club to look to.


Bonnie Blue

This is my Bonnie Blue. She was rescued by my mother's boss. Her previous owners tried to dump her on a vet, who had no room for her. Boss man tracked the people down, and rescued her. He brought her home, and realized that he didn't have the room for her. So, we adopted her. She is 2, and finally at a good, healthy weight, and has put a good amount of muscle on her. She is so loving, and all she wants is to love and cuddle you!
