Arrival Story:
We had Bailey, she is our girl Basset, about a year and thought she should have a pal. We found Baxter at a rescue. We actually were going to a fosters to look at another dog but there was Baxter. He immediately attached himself to me and from the look in his eyes I knew he needed us as much as we wanted him. Off we went to take our Baxter home to meet his little sister Bailey. It didn't take long and they were the best of friends. They are so close now that they could never be separated. They compliment each other.

We live in Wisconsin so they get to play in the snow in the winter and smell the flowers in the summer. We have a nice fenced yard and they enjoy running and chasing each other and rabbits around the yard. Thank goodness they have not caught any yet.

Boy is our new kingsize bed nice . Me and Bailey sleep right in the middle and wow can I ever stretch out. Bailey always sleeps in a little ball, all curled up, now I like to sprawl out using as much as the space as possible. Last night I even took over dad's pillow, I got to get me one of those. I think they are getting me steps. You see I have to put my paws up and mom has to lift my butt up to get on the bed. Bailey just jumps right up, she is such a show off. But mom said dad has to build me some stairs before I hurt myself. Life is good and then we sleep HEE HEE


I Got Stuck Last Night

My human mom and dad got a new kingsize bed and it is really big we tried it out after they delivered it today. Dad said well I have about the same amount of room as I did in the old bed and mom said me too. I did not understand cause Bailey and I had lots more room. The night before they, well mostly dad moved the old bed into another room and then mom used the noisy water making machine on the carpet in our bedroom. I don't know why but we slept in the room where they moved the bed I did not like that it wasn't our bedroom, we could have all just slept on the floor in our bedroom. I was very nervous about this switch in rooms and I paced and I could not get comfortable I thought I'd take a look under the bed and I crawled on my belly under and I got stuck I wiggled and wiggled and I could not move. Finally mom woke up and she reached in behind me and nudged me out.
Wow that was a long night. Today some men delivered the big bed I hope we sleep in our own bedroom tonight.

My mom and dad came to my foster home 2 years ago on Jan 18th and I knew I wanted them to take me home as soon as I saw them. One look at my human mom and I knew this would be easy she sat down to look at this stupid girl basset and I knew I would have to work fast I jumped up along side of her on the couch and I gave her alittle kiss and layed my head on her lap. Boy was she easy. After that she did not even look at any other fosters there. She started petting me so I rolled over to check out her ability to give belly rubs. She was great so I really turned on the charm. They think they picked me but actually I picked them. It's been two years now and she still gives me the best belly rubs ever. When we got to my forever home I got a big surprise they had a girl basset Bailey she is pretty bossy but we have a good time. We had a celebration for my 2 years in my forever home. we had homemade doggie cookies some looked like ice cream cones my human mom was eyeing them up I thought she was going to eat mine. I am so happy I picked them, don't tell them let them think they picked me.
