This is what Martha had to say about Sherlock
This is my first basset, Sherlock. He came to us at the age of 5 weeks. He came from a litter of 14 pups and his mom, young herself, quit nursing all of them. July 19, 1980. was gotcha day. cuter than cute, and absolutely terrified, we brought him home.The first night he slept on my chest, while I slept in the recliner the entire night, He grew up to be a very large boy. 68+ pounds, 14" tall, just over 5' long from tip to tip. The nieghbors called him sherman because of his size. He was my heart dog. Born 06/13/1980..gotcha 07/19/1980 ATB 07/19/1993. I love this puppy picture of him. He was my start in the world of bassets and will always love him.
