Congratulations to Grand Marshall 2020: Alfred the Basset Hound!

Alfred in 2018.


Drum roll please………………

We are proud to announce our 2020 Board Waddle Grand Marshal!

Leading the hounds this year will be a very special senior boy. Please give a warm welcome to: Alfred Cromie

Alfred was purchased from a Basset Hound Club of America registered basset hound breeder and has lived with Linda and Dell Cromie since he was 12 weeks old. Alfred has a big family and is lucky to live with his son Dr Gordon Freeman and his grandson Ralphie. When Alfred was only 10 weeks old he and one of his litter mates posed for the Hush Puppies website. Alfred is now 12 years old, he is deaf and he is a cancer survivor but that does not stop Alfred. His mom reports that he loves to go to work with his dad. He wears his own tie and even has his own executive leather chair that he refuses to share with anyone else. Alfred and his family care about the homeless hounds in rescue and pay it forward by supporting the homeless hounds in need. 

Congratulations Alfred our 2020 Grand Marshall for Tri State Basset Hound Rescue’s Board Waddle in the 35th annual Doo Dah Parade. 

Last year was a record waddle year! Attached are our top 10 waddle donors in order. Thank you to everyone who contributed to help us save the hounds.
