About Us
Basil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Basil
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Boxer
Home: Adelaide, Australia
   We bought Basil when he was a tiny mite of under 8 weeks of age. He looked like his clothes were too big for him (he still does - even at 37 kilo [82 pounds]!!).

    When we emigrated to Australia from the UK two years ago, we had no doubts that Basil was to come with us. After all, he is a special member of our family. He actually flew out a week before we did. We knew he would be in quarantine for 30 days, so we timed it so we could have him in our new home before Xmas! So, after a long flight from London, and thirty days in quarantine in Melbourne, he took one more flight from Melbourne to Adelaide on Xmas eve 1995. What a reunion that was!!

    He is now settled here in Australia. He has a new friend - a boxer bitch called Sybil (what else!), and maybe one day they will produce a little Manuel or Polly - who knows?!
