Who's that Doggie on the Confirmation Page?

Ever wonder what the story is behind the basset hound that looks at you with those droopy eyes, thanking you for your order on Zappos? Wait no more! World…meet Fletch!

Name: Fletch

Birthday: September 15, 1999

Likes: filet mignon treats and long walks in the park with Ned and Andy

We at Zappos love our furry friends and since his arrival into our lives, Fletch has gained quite a following. So much so that he was one of the guests of honor at the recent 1st Annual Basset Hound Picnic.

Andy, Fletch’s owner, said that he was expectedly very excited for this function. When they received the invitation in the mail, there was a sense that he knew exactly what was in store for him. He’d get to spend some quality time with his old friends from the rescue; Gary – the brown and white droopy eyed senior citizen, Henrietta – the blind 5 year old with a plucky spirit, and Boscoe – the quiet, reserved gentleman.

“Like any reunion, the atmosphere was electric when we got there,” said Andy. “Old friends and new ones approached Fletch and I right away, I could sense fear and anxiety in Fletch.”

Fletch certainly wasn’t used to this sudden bombardment of creatures that looked like him. A few standoffs, and nervous urinations later, Fletch finally relaxed. He began gravitating to his old social circle.

Boscoe and Fletch appeared to pick up where they left off. Telepathically Fletch told Boscoe about how he became this big Internet star and how his life was never the same…constant requests for interviews, award shows and endorsement opportunities. Boscoe, not one to be impressed by this, responded by laying a ‘deuce’ next to Fletch’s feet. Un-phased by this, Fletch went on talking about himself, often referring to himself in the 3rd dog.

Fletch has quite a following and you never know…he might just join the conversation on Twitter! ( twitter.com/fletch_thedog )

Fletch is such a prima donna these days..I tried getting him up this morning, and he told me he won't get out of bed for anything less than 10,000 fillet mignon treats.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Fletch on the confirmation page. I got my basset from a rescue and at 14 she is still going strong, even being blind and deaf. Her nose works perfectly well and I think that is all that matters. I hope Fletch is still as annoying as a proper basset should be.

I love the picture of Fletch! I love the senior bassets. I foster for basset rescue and have had close to 100 bassets pass through my house. The seniors are the best!

We have our own celebrity Basset Hound at the Companion Animal Protection Society, a national nonprofit that investigates the pet shop and puppy mill industry. Puppy mill survivor Beatrice is our spokesmodel with her own blog, business cards and numerous social media pages, including nearly 1250 Facebook fans.

Beatrice is the canine star of our new ad campaign: Models Against Pet Shops and Puppy Mills. Beautiful models, rescue dogs, photographer, videographer, stylists and others donated their time to make this campaign happen.

http://www.caps-web.org/models-against-pet-shops-and-puppy-mills.php.

Beatrice encourages you to check out her blog, Bea's Beat, while on our website. You can also find her on Facebook under beainpink (she's wears a pink swim snood for water therapy; she has deformed elbows and twisted foot, glaucoma and a minor heart condition).

Thanks for rescuing Fletch! If only everyone would do that then millions of animals wouldn't be unnecessarily dying in shelters every year.

Way to go, Fletch! All your fellow rescued bassets at Golden Gate Basset Rescue (Petaluma, CA) would admire you for your accomplishments if they could leave their food bowls long enough to get online to read about you!

This was my first time ordering from Zappos, and I was so excited to see Fletch! I have two Bassets (George and Gracie, ages 13 and 14) and both were rescued from Basset rescue in Virginia.

I'm a Basset Hound & shoe enthusiast. So glad to find both on Zappos. Stewart, my sweet Basset, loves nice shoes too. Fortunately (for all involved) there have been no fatalities. Glad to learn about Fletch. I was always curious.
