Arrival Story: I got Shelby as a birthday present from my employer, about 8 months after having to put my bassett hound down. Shelby came from a litter of 8 pups whose mother was hit by a car and died. Shelby was 4 weeks old and I brought home without my husbands knowledge. I called him to the back door and told him that I had a surprise for him. He took one look at Shelby and said no way, you can't bring her in. Still greiving from my bassett hound and so hard to put any animal down and not wanting to go through the pain again he was adimant that we were not going to have another pet. Finally I coaxed him in to meeting Shelby and they were on the floor playing with in 2 1.2 seconds. The two of them are inseperable now, 5 years later.
