Ruby was a gift to my 12 year old son. He was diagnosed with Tourettes and was having a hard time. So one day we decided we needed a puppy to love. We found Ruby from a local breeder. She was about 15 weeks old. She was a little skinny and awkward but we fell in love with her immediately. She was a part of the family.
The one thing I learned from having a Basset Hound is that no matter how sweet the face is she still needs some discipline no matter how hard that may be. She was one of the best dogs I have ever owned.
I had to make the decision to have her put to sleep after she developed some cancerous lesions. She was in pain and it broke my heart. But I did not want her to suffer after she had given me so much happiness. She is missed everyday.
I would definitely recommend a Basset to anyone who has a heart big enough to love a pet, that does not think she is a pet but a four legged person.
Always missing Ruby,
