Honey, the runt.

Best Friends :)
Honey &  Howard the stuffed Basset

A lady in a nearby town placed a paper ad in regards for adoption a litter of purebred Basset Hounds.

At the time, I was in college and was not able to go. My girlfriend (now fiance) Erica decided to go.

Erica was so excited to meet the group of Bassets.

Long story short. The runt of the litter, “Honey" almost instantly turned on her charm by licking Erica's face.

The lady explained nobody had taken interest in Honey because she was the runt.

Honey came home that day and the rest is history.
If you are not a basset hound owner, you are missing out in my opinion!

Honey is the joy of our lives! She is sweet, loving, extremely funny, grumpy (in a good way)... too many adjectives to list...

Have patience, basset hounds are a true gift in life :)

just like my Lemonade
by: Lemonade's mom

She looks just like my Lemonade (who isn't with us any more) and she was the runt of the litter also. I loved her so much and it was hard to see her go.
