Arrival Story:
I was heartbroken after the sudden death of my Amber, a very kind and faithful yellow lab. The house echoed, it was soooo empty. I called on an old ad in the paper published 4 weeks previously that caught my eye. The ad read, "basset-bloodhound mix pups". Hmmmmmm I had always wanted a houndie. This pup would be nothing like a lab (I knew Amber was irreplaceable)... Well, I found out all the pups had gone to their new homes, but oddly enough, one pup had been returned the previous day as the new owner was allergic to her. Yes!! This was my lucky day!!! I actually believe that she was just MEANT FOR ME. Just seeing that beautiful doggie-face, it was love at first sight. ar-rooooo, ar-roooooooo, ar-rooooooooooooooo Now, the daily mischief, thievery, and oh-so silly antics have brought a new joy into life... Every day I enjoy BIG houndie hugs from my Luna Bear --- the most loving-est dog I have ever known!

Bio:
following is a list of some of the items Luna Bear has partially/totally consumed in her first year of life: 1 cell phone, 1 (VERY VERY important) bill from the IRS, at least 1 of each of my pairs of shoes, 3 beautiful, expensive (and very large) books, 1 couch, 1 loveseat, ALL of the newly planted spring flowers, 3 pairs of sunglasses, 1 paycheck, 2 tv remote controls, etc. etc...and, of course, the EMPTY SPOT left in my heart by Amber ATB.

Ar-oooooo from Luna Bear! Here I am, a healthy, happy houndette. At 9 and 3/4 yrs old, I am actually between 71-78 in human yrs. I can still act all wild and cwazy like I did in puppyhood, but I usually don't waste my time wif dat when I could be couch napping instead..I like to get excited for my dinner cuz it still makes my mom laugh. Dat vet man told us I am I good health (for an old lady), dat my mom takes very good care of me. I still weigh 106 and now hab a very white face. Yup I did have glaucoma and am blind but I still hab both eyes and a lovely expression they say...And best of all I am able to walk wif her again after that scary problem wif my back last year! Okay, so I am no greyhound, but that's just fine wif us! My mom says I was born to collect all the extra happiness in the world and share it with a whole lot ub people who always stop to pet and admire me. She says I make everyone smile. I am happy to be a happiness giver! Luna Bear

Ar-ooooo and Happy New Year! Okay It's true... I do believe in Christmas miracles! That is because I am one! Finally after way too many visits to dat ol' vet man and having to munch on pills stuffed inside cream cheese for weeks and weeks, my problems with my vertebrae and nerves are much much better. I am carrying my tail up high again! I still walk with a slight sway sometimes in my rear, but do not drag my rear leg. and when I want to, am quite capable to get up on the couch, all by myself! My mom is soo happy with my progress... she says its a miracle! The woof is this. I'm happy again. I'm not in pain. I'm a well loved hound and I yam ready to "Sniff Everything Everywhere and Enjoy Life" once again... Lub to all, from sweet and kind Luna Bear

A 2012 Christmas Aroooo an da woof is this: My back has been hurting alot. I have one rear leg that drags when I walk and I also have a very wobbly rear end, a stagger which I can't seem to control... So we went to see dat ol vet man. He said that I have 6 fused vertebrae in my spine--they are now putting alot of pressure on my spinal cord/nerves...last weekend I finished with the Prednisone treatment but vet man recheck said my condition had only a 25% improvement. My mom is very worried about me and we are now going to a specialist.. I am a dog, I only know today. Today I am in pain and am taking pain meds. Today i still cannot control my walk and need help going outside, up and down my ramp. My mom loves me a lot and I trust she will make the right decisions. Arooooos furends :-) Luna Bear
