    All this talk about pets

    I have been holding off on posting to see how things worked out. Looks like it is going to be OK so here is Elmo.



    My first rescue. Good friend is on the local PD and they found Elmo at a meth house during a bust. Didn't have a place to put him so I got volunteered. Part basset and beagle. He is really a good dog. Wasn't sure if he was going to stay around or not, so far he just stays home.

    Yep he's a dandy. Driving my basset crazy. Best guess is 6 months or so. Always has nose on the ground. I don't know if he got any of the effects or not, but he was a little goofy when I got him.

    Built for comfort, not for speed.

    He looks like a great dog, Steve. I'm betting he appreciates being in a good home getting good attention.

    Oh he is getting attention. He chews up one more of the wife's flowers and he will get a bunch of love. I think it is funny, but don't tell her

    Now Steve thats my kind of dog. I did not know the mix existed. But now i do...welll.....


    I was put off the beagles cause someone told me they have a bad habit of running off.

    But the basset mix would make a difference i guess looking at those paws.

    Glad you keeping him, dog like that needs a good home.
    cheers
