Maureen is convinced that
Tony had been scheming away for months on the "project" which would
ultimately see Lil (Barembak Thea) join the Maursett Mob.
Lil's breeder, Alan Mease,
had been teasing Maureen at show after show about the "arrangement"
and how the little Basset would find her way to join the Maursetts;
so it was a surprise when Alan called - in all seriousness - and
offered this beautiful girl to us. We were delighted to
accept. She walked into the house and our lives as though she
had been here all the time.

You really should let me
climb up on your knee, dad!
She has even been allowed
to help her Clumber friend, Ethel (Maursett
Melisent), collect spoons!
