    I gotta show off my furry son

    This is my kinda new (to me) puppy, Leo. After our beloved Yankee died, we just didn't think we were up for another doggy. But then we found out about Leo & between his adorable face & his sad story (dumped as a puppy, spent a bit of time at a pound & was rescued by a true angel hours before he was to be put down) & it was love. He's a Lab/Basset hound mix & just turned a year old. He is absolutely a total love bug & likes nothing more than plopping his 55 pounds in my lap for a nap... LOL! I can't imagine my life without him.

    I wish we had a whole section for our furry kids, don't you? Maybe we could just start one. Waht do you think?

    Thanks for letting me brag about my boy.

    What a sweet face. He's a beauty. We used to have a Basset hound/Lab mix, but she was black with long ears. A real sweetheart.

    What a great combination! I hope he doesn't have too much of the stubborness of the Bassett. Although stubborn, very sweet. Labs are sweet and smart. He is so cute. Good fortune to you all!

    I am so glad you found each other. Another dog will help ease the pain of losing one, just keep getting another, that is what I do. When the time comes to cross the rainbow bridge me and all my pets will fill it up, I have lost so many cats and dogs over the years.
    He is a cutie and looks so serene.

    Congrats on your beautiful new furbaby! ADORABLE! How could you NOT fall in love?

    Just 3 days ago we had to put to rest our fur-child...a 12 1/2 year old Boston Terrier that we had raised from 6 wks. of age. She had developed a brain tumor. We are still grieving but the house is just too quiet now and we are seriously considering getting another furbaby very soon, rather than waiting.

    The grave is still fresh in the back yard and we have ordered a rose bush called "Elegant Lady" to plant on the grave since her name was Lady.

    Funny you should mention that. He goes to puppy school & his "teacher" raises various kinds of hounds. She mentioned their notorious stubbornness & he has a bit of it. He's really smart... when he wants to be... LOL! His
    personality is more hound than retriever, tho he is sweet & smart. He's not into balls or any kind of fetching, tho. I'm not sure how much of his behavior is just youthful exuberance & how much will stay. But we really can't complain. He's friendly, loving, affectionate, gentle... just a doll baby... no chewing stuff up, no biting, no bad stuff. Can you tell I ADORE him?

    Oh, the Rainbow Bridge just kills me, doesn't it you? I have a copy of that poem in a frame with a picture of my Yankee.

    Oh, sweetie! I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Please know that you are in my thoughts. Please let us know when you get another baby. I am glad we didn't wait. The house was just so empty & lonely. Even tho nothing will ever replace Yankee in my heart, having Leo to love & care for has helped ease the pain. Hugs from me & a big slurp from Leo...
