Debucher Baguette, aka Emma

This is a bit about me – meet Emma!

Hi!  I am Debucher Baguette, a Grand Basset Griffon Vendeén, but being more of a no frills kind of girl I prefer to go by Emma the GBGV.  In case you wonder that that GBGV really means, the Grand refers to our size in the whole group of BGV hounds, Basset refers to our shorter legs, Griffon to our coat and Vendeén is the area of France where the breed originated – basically a French Scent Hound.

I was born on September 11, 2006 in England, my doggie parents are Debucher Yorrick and Debucher Prima Donna.   I personally think my dad is so cute – reminds me a bit of Huckle Berry Hound and that look of trouble in his eyes, I inherited that for sure!

My Doggie Parents

When I was 9 weeks old my new mom flew to England to pick me up, she could not wait to meet Emma, meaning me.  I flew back to Germany with her and was still small enough to fit under the seat so I was with her the whole time.  When I was about 10 months old, we packed up the family and moved to Minnesota in the USA.  This time I had to fly in the cargo hold which was scary but I knew mom would find me once we landed.

We have been living in Minnesota since July 2007.  I have a great house with a decent sized fenced yard, a wonderful big sister, Katie a Kuvasz that is 4 years older than me and I have 2 cats that we adopted in the fall of 2008 when Bert was about 3 and Sophie about 1 yr old.

I love to have fun and do have fun most of the time.  I love to get all dirty and messy, hate to get groomed, love watching, chasing and hunting squirrels, rabbits and other small critters but most of all I enjoy  just being a wild and crazy girl with lots of snuggle time especially with my mom!

I hope you enjoy my blog – I thought it would be fun to share my experiences with other GBGV people and people that don’t yet know of the breed in the hopes of creating more attention to the GBGV as a great pet.  Follow me on twitter or like my facebook page to stay in touch!

    Greetings to Katie. My mummy was telling Me and Nellie that she has found a blog that has photos and mentions a dog that is similar to Me and Nellie. We were very excited because as hard as mummy searches on this place she calls the internet. she has not yet found many other blogs that feature livestock guardian dogs, such as yourself. We are two maremmas, (Italian sheep dogs) living in New Zealand. Love Jasper and Nellie from the sunny Mangamahu valley, New Zealand
