bassetEaston resident Allen Sullivan has published a photographic story book about basset hounds that is available for purchase in Monroe.

The Christmas Tree Hunt tells the story of what the author calls “The Basset Domain.”

It focuses on Boan, a basset hound puppy, and his pack of friends and family as they strike out in search of the legendary perfect Christmas tree — only to find that the journey is more about sharing the adventure and love of family and friends than actually acquiring a perfect tree.

Numbered and signed copies of the book now are available at Framed by Kosal, 150 Main St. (Route 25), Monroe.

“For the past 32 years,” Sullivan said, “I have been fortunate enough to spend my happiest hours and days roaming through this realm with [my bassets], often photographing their adventures and encounters with other denizens they’ve met along the way.”
