Hi Everybody,

I hope that you are all having a wonderful day. I am new to the world of the basset hound and let me tell you- it's the best ride I have ever been on. My 'daughter' Dolly is an eight month old, tri color, flabby, beautiful lady. I found it funny that the stereotype of a basset is lazy and not energetic. This makes me laugh as my girl is a bundle of energy and has as much, if not more energy than my four year old lab (who she loves and adores).

I just have a few questions for all of you experts:

**Dolly is not a great eater, she has no interest in her food and we have tried several of the best brands.
**she itches all the time- doesn't have any soft spots or fleas and I have cut chicken and grains from her diet.
**recently she has started throwing up a little.
Energy levels never change, she always seems happy and very active.

Our vet is not worried but I would love to hear if any of you have had the same issues or if you could offer any advice? I would really appreciate it.

Lovely to 'meet' you all,
Dolly's Mom,
Ciara.
