The Lucky Man!

by TH
(Westchester, NY)



I have lived with Labs my entire life growing up. I moved in with my boyfriend about two years ago and he and his mother owned a 10 year old basset hound. I immediately fell in love.

My boyfriend's mother grew very sick and unfortunately passed. Since then, we were left with this amazing dog she raised.

He is always hungry and drools everywhere! I never thought I would have this breed and they are definitely much different than Labs. His long ears get so dirty but it just adds to his personality. He is the most loving dog and the best at cuddling.

After having Lucky I don't think I could ever get anything but a basset. My favorite is how everything he is thinking no matter what, comes through in his eyes. I know when he's hungry, tired, sick, or wants to go out.

I suggest a basset to any true dog lover!!!!

I love this line from your story, "He is always hungry and drools everywhere!" LOL. You're a Basset Hound lover for sure. Who else would find dirty ears and drool everywhere to be so endearing?

I have a 10-year-old basset hound I got from the shelter. Aren't they wonderful? How has your basset done with the death?
