New: Imported Basset Hounds to kennel Kalvskinnet


My name is Merete Lien. I have been breeding basset hounds since 1986. Professionally, I am a designer and illustrator.

My first bassets were Ermintrude Luther (S Ch Karipat Spring
Drifter/Coffeebean) and a beautiful bitch from the Alandia's in Sweden, N Ch S Ch Alandias Butternut (INT Ch Sanchu's Cottonwooed/Playing Doll). This was in 1984.

Martha, as we called her, was an excellent representative of the breed, with a very good temper and an excellent mother for her three litter of 10, 12 and 10 puppies. All these litters were raised in a town flat at Kalvskinnet in Trondheim, hence my prefix. The name of this part of the town stems from the myth that a man bought a piece of land of the size of a calf's hide. He cut the hide in a long strip and surrounded as much land as possible by it, thus getting this part of Nidaros, as the town then was called.

N Ch Baseknap's Blue Indian.
