Eating and cuddling

When people won't let him eat or cuddle

Favorite Toy:
Any baby toy that he isn't supposed to play with

Favorite Food:
Pretty much anything, especially other people's food

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
He's pretty proud that he has been able to master 'sit', although he doesn't do to badly at 'stay' and he's gotten better at coming back if he sneaks out of the house or yard.

Arrival Story:
After losing a Bichon, who was our other dog's buddy, we decided to add another member to our family as we like to have 2 dogs. After much investigation, it was decided that a Basset Hound would work well in our home with a baby. Interestingly, within a few short days of making this decision, an ad came up in our local classifieds from a family that, regretfully was having to re-home their Basset. It was a very difficult separation for his former 'mom', but she allowed us to take him into our home 10 months ago, when he was 18 months old. It was a big of an adjustment in our home with the other dog, but after some time(and a neutering)they are the best of friends and the human members of our family kinda like him, too:-)
