Welllll not my first choice. But I fell in LOVE!

Its a girl!

I'm the proud new momma of Camrey, a one yr old red/white female Basset Hound. She is sooo cute.

I was originally going for a pitt bull. (Which is a breed that I still love.) But, the man bred the female pitt that I was going to get. And he refused to sell her til the pups were born. I was heartbroken. I had just lost my pitt named Molly a few weeks ago and while I wasn't looking for a Basset, something about Camry just popped up to me. I took one look at her and fell madly in love.

We went to pick her up and found out that she was actually going to be put to sleep. This beautiful, young, energetic (as much as you can imagine a Basset being) fur baby was going to be put to sleep! We immediately took her.

She's now got a place in the bedroom right next to the bed in her cozy doggie-bed and she loves it. I'd let her sleep in the bed but A: my fiance does NOT agree with sharing a bed with two girls and B: The bed's really high up and the veterinarian said it'd be hell on her joints to climb up and down it all the time. So we compromised and she now sleeps right next to the bed.

In the morning she wakes us up when she has to go out to do her business and when we go somewhere and put her in her x-large crate she doesn't make a single mess. She lays there looking as pitiful as possible (not hard for her) til we come home. Then it's like she's saying "Where did you go! I thought I'd never see you again! Oh my gosh! Im so glad your back. Let's go lay down and cuddle!" Lol. Which I don't mind a bit. I love her and she's going to have a home til her last day!

I love you Camry! =)

Congratulations on your new family member!
I also tried to get my bassets into my bed but my hubby wouldnt allow it....so now my bassets and dachshunds sleep in the spare room (their own bedroom). They also have beds in the family room - how spoilt are they? Don't be suprised, as bassets are very energetic. A lot of people think that they are always lazy but that couldnt be further from the truth. They are such loveable, sociable dogs and are wonderful with children too.

I am so happy for you and your new family member! My husband and I just adopted our first Basset, Shortcake. She is 5 years old and a tricolor. I am so in love with her and she brings a new joy to our lives. I wish you and your new dog many years of happiness.

Sorry and Congrats...

Really sorry to hear that you lost your Pitt Bull.

On the other hand, congratulations on getting (and rescuing) a Basset Hound! Quite a change in breed. But, it sounds like Camrey fits right into your home and life.

My Basset Hound sleeps in his cozy dog bed right next to my bed too. He actually has two beds. One is downstairs. That's the one he uses when he wants to hang with us in the family room. The other is in my bedroom. When I go to bed, he wanders upstairs a little while after I do and sleeps in that one.

Enjoy! Thanks for sharing your story.
