I want to thank everyone who helped me get here! Dogster was a big help in my new caretaker deciding to get a new dog. My new little brother Mr. Jake the Beagle has been on this forum for a year and a half. That youngin' .

Well Hello! I'm Sweet Caroline. My new guardian picked up out of the shelter just today. It's nice to meet you all!!!

Updated : 3/12/13

Sweet Caroline has come through her Dental 100% but pretty sore. She lost a few teeth and had some gum cut away. She does have a heart murmur but her heart is otherwise healthy and working. It's not enlarged thankfully. relieved

The vet also told me based on her tarter build up she's probably closer to 10 years old then 7. I told her it didn't mater.

The only thing that changed was i put a rush on the glucosamine pills i order this after noon. From 3-5 days to 2 day shipping big grin

Anyway I hope She and I will have many happy years togeether with Mr. Beagle. Even though it's only been a few days. I feel like she's been here her whole life.

Sabi- Thanks! I don't know this song my new Mom speaks of. But she says it matches me exactly.

Annie- HI!

Flicka- Thanks. Your words mean a lot to mom. She was so worried about messing this up some how. And she wasn't sure another hound was right for here. Espeically after that first year with Jake that she goes on and on about. (She literally won't stop saying how different I am already from him) But she's still since we're both tri color she expected us to be similar. Doesn't she know each dog is different big grin

Sophie- HELLO! Mr. Beagle and I get along like two peas in a pod. You'd never guess i've only been here 24 hours!

Thank you everyone for welcoming Sweet Caroline. I didn't think when i started my search long before asking Dogster for help that I would have picked a senior dog. But i realize now she was a great choice. Jake is already so much calmer around the house. And he seems to take joy in stealing her kong and then letting her eat his. It's so strange.

Thank you all again so much for your help! I feel my family is so much more complete now.

Welcome Sweet Caroline!

What a beauty she is! I will never be able to live without hounds in my life again, regardless of the type. I just love them sooo much. Especially the long floppy ears on scenthounds. Basset mixes make some of the cutest rescue dogs around too!

Hoping you lots of good fortune with her, and lots of good memories, and hoping her and Jake get along super well too!

Do you even- lift?

Congratulations! I love seeing people adopt older dogs. They're so often overlooked, but they have so much to give.
