Arrival Story:
We found Toni about a month after her sister, Dixie was adopted. A man was advertising in the newspaper and my husband was so eager to have a basset hound. We went down to pick her out and she was so small. We took her and she cried that whole day! She was so scared and tiny. She was so small that she had to be nursed from a bottle right beside her sister, Dixie.

Toni was named for Tony Soprano on the Sopranos. She used to be a huge chewer but she has really grown out of that phase (thank God). Toni is your typical basset hound, drooly, huge and utterly loveable. She seems to be finding her place as one of the dominant dogs of our little "pack". Our dachsund used to have this title but Toni has discovered that her size is an advantage and she uses it! She is also very quick which surprised me about her. Her weight doesn't seem to hold her back. She is extremely playful and if you offer to touch her in any way at all she falls on her back and is putty in your hands. She is the pillow for the other girls at night. They all gather around her and lie down on her and she doesn't seem to mind. Actually she is a very heavy sleeper so she curls up in a little ball and is out for the evening. She is great!

Another Hot Day

Yawn! Well, I just got up from my tenth nap of the day. It has been hot here so I like to lay out on the lawn and fall asleep. Mom just came home from work and I stood at the fence to tell her hi and that I missed her. She called out to all of us and waved before she went inside. So I decided to take a stroll around the yard, sniffing around the grass to see what I could find. Still haven't found anything good yet but I look every single day. I got thirsty so I went and balanced my snout on the edge of the water bowl while I took a good long drink. I also gave my ears a bath. Talk about killing two birds with one stone! My sisters were giving me dirty looks because they knew I left lines of drool floating in the water. I think it's funny but, for whatever reason, they hate it! Oh, well. Off to take another nap.
