So Travis and I have been saying for a long time that when Kurt dies, we aren't going to get a new dog for a long time. We've lost 3 Boxers in 6 years and just felt we should take a little break from dogs. Well...a funny thing happened today. Travis and I got home from work at about 6:00 and there was a Bassett Hound pup in our yard!! She had a collar and a leash but no tags. She's really skinny and first thing we did was get her food and water which she wolfed down like we couldn't believe. I went in to call Animal Control. But they were closed except for emergencies. She wasn't hurt and hadn't hurt anybody. So I was like, let's keep her! I couldn't believe how easy it was to convince Travis! He just looked into those puppy hound dog eyes and was sold! So I've bathed her, haven't named her yet, gave her Gracie's old collar and Travis is going to go to PetSmart to get a crate and dishes. I can't believe how cute she is. We'll take her to the vet soon to get aged and checked out, but I bet she's only like three or four months. I took a few pictures, but she is so fast and hard to get a good picture.
