Dreaming of Waddling... and Studying Up a Bit

I'm taking a little snooze while I travel to my next destination -- the AZBHR Waddle O' the Green. I am SO excited!!! I'm becoming quite the seasoned waddler, and this will be my THIRD big event of the basset social season. I've been in training for the big day.

While I'm snuggled in my comfy traveling crate, I thought I'd test everyone's knowledge of leprechauns, bassets and Arizona Basset Hound Rescue's history (cause I've been studying up). So here's my quickie quiz:
  1. What is AZBHR's fundraising goal for this year's Waddle O' the Green?
  2. What profession were leprechauns known for pursuing?
  3. What is the name of the AZBHR newsletter?
  4. What treasure do leprechauns hide -- and people seek?
  5. The basset hound breed was developed by (a) English, (b) French, (c) Irish nobility to hunt rabbit, hare, deer and other game.
(for the answers... scroll down below this Irish Blessing...

Near a misty stream in Ireland in the hollow of a tree
Live mystical, magical leprechauns
who are clever as can be
With their pointed ears, and turned up toes and little coats of green
The leprechauns busily make their shoes and try hard not to be seen.
Only those who really believe have seen these little elves
And if we are all believers
We can surely see for ourselves.

Answers: (1) $30,000 -- won't you help them reach that goal? (2) shoemaking (bassets would have made socks... or treats); (3) Hound Herald; (4) a pot of gold (for basset hound rescue of course); (5) French

Come Waddle with Wendell next Saturday in Phoenix!! What could be more fun??!!
