I have had them 2 days now and as roudy as they are, I feel I have bit off more than I can chew!
"Bo", our husky/malimute is growing a think an inch a day and "Dodger" ( our other basset) doesn't know what to think with all these puppies running around!
"Lillie" playing Peek-A-Boo!

On your left is our little girl named "Lillie", and on your right is our little runt male named "Copper". They are 3 weeks old and will be ready to come home with us in about 3 more weeks!
I was going to adopt just one but..just like potato chips... I couldn't have just one, so ... I chose BOTH!!
When we lost "Goober" in March and adopted "Dodger", then lost "Buster" in July, I just couldn't bare to not have another Basset. A friend of mine's aunts male and female Bassets just had a litter of puppies and told me about them. I just couldn't resist so I went to look at them. I FELL IN LUUUUVVVV!!! It was such a tough decision, I decided to take the two I fell in love with the moment I saw them.
Now, we have a 4 year old Basset Hound named "Dodger", and my husband just adopted a Husky/Malamute pup that is about 7 weeks old. I was just gonna get one of the basset pups but I just could not help myself. They are soooooo cute!!!!
He follows my husband around everywhere he goes and is already spoiled rotten. "Bo" is going to be one beautiful LARGE dog when he grows up. "Dodger" will be looking UP at him instead of down really soon! But they have become great buddies and it's been great for "Dodger". He has really missed "Buster".
I will be putting updated pic's of "Bo" as I post so you can see how he has grown.
On Thursday, July 10, 2008, I lost my precious Buster. Coyotes had attacked and killed him right in our front yard the day before my 40 birthday. It could not have been a worst day.

Yesterday our hamster 'Fatso' has went to Heaven. It was time for him to go and be with Jesus. My son cried when I told him. He was at his grandma's when I had to break the news. My son is such an animal lover, just like his mamma. God has blessed him with such a huge heart for all walks of life here on earth and I know that he will see 'Fatso' again someday.
So we are now missing 1 basset hound and minus 1 hamster. 'Honeybunn' (my elderly cat)is also sick and I don't think she will be with us much longer. It's always very hard to let a pet go when you are so attached to them. It's difficult seeing ANY animal hurt or worse but it's even more difficult when it's your pet that you've loved for years. You never get over them being gone from your life and there will always be a hole in our hearts for those very special pets that have made a permanent mark in our walk with life.
Please continue to pray for 'Goober's' safe return to us. We will never give up and always have faith and hope that he will come home.

Family Watch Dog is a site I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to put in your favorites. Family Watch Dog is a Sex Offenders site that pulls up a map of where you live and can SHOW you where all of the offenders live AND work. It is an incredible site that offers to keep you updated by email on when and where an offender moves in or out of your area.
We can never be too safe of our childrens surroundings. I feel safer now just by getting the updates and to be able to pull up anytime where my house is and look around my area for offenders.

Everything: By LifeSong is an EXTREMEMLY POWERFUL video from GodTube that I think EVERYONE needs to see. It is made at a church somewhere in Tennessee. You can actually order the DVD by calling the information that comes with viewing the video. My brother ordered it and they send it right to you.
EVERY single time I watch this, I literally CRY. It is so much a reality for all of us. We ALL can relate to the power of satan but Jesus is MORE powerful and will always be there to pull you out. He never fails with His promises. NEVER.
Hope you like the video and please share it with all you friends and family. It is too powerful NOT to.

Is this in a nut shell or what!?! What a sweet little boy! This child has more faith than a whole lot of us do sometimes, don'tcha think? We could all learn a thing or to from Logan. I just cried when I listened to this wonderful gift from God telling us that it will be alright. WOW! What an awesome child!

Pet Health Issue: Young Pets, Overweight Pets, and Older Pets, During the Summer Heat
Summer Heat Tips:
The statistics of pet ownership has been climbing for years. Every day many more people go out and become new pet owners, and some of us have had pets longer then some jobs or even marriages. Regardless of how long you have had your pet, you will have to deal with at least two of the issues I am about to address, that of summer health issues and the age or weight of your pets.
Like humans, age and conditioning play an important part of our activities during the summer months. Regrettably we often fail to notice the effects that summer has on our four legged friends.
Pets do not have the same ability to cool down as you and I do. When it is excessively hot, like it can be during the summer months, we can sit in front of a fan, grab a cold soda, or crank up the air conditioners. But your pet must pant and pant until his body temperature is regulated. Even in an air conditioned room, your pet can be too hot if you have been outside running them around for a while. Remember, it will take considerable more time for him to cool down from his exercise, than it will for you.
To avoid putting your pet’s health at serious risk this summer, follow a few simple steps that can make a big difference:
Walk your pets early in the morning or late at night. These times of day are much cooler, and they will appreciate not having the blazing sun on their fur coat.
Bring a large water bottle for your pet. Water bottles are not just for you. Get one for your pet. Use one that has a squirt top as they can lick the water out easier, and you will not spill as much.
Take your time walking your pet. If you must walk your pet during the hottest hours, (hey we all have schedules), then make sure you can go at a slow pace. Cut the walk short if you need to and take rest breaks during the walk. Better to walk your dog again later than to overdo it at noon time.
Monitor your pet’s health. The more time you spend with your pet, the more you should know about your pet’s health condition. You need to know the limits of the pets you have.
Always consider the weakest pet health link. If you have more then one pet, then make sure you always keep in mind the pet which will have the highest risk factors.
For example: We have two Bassett Hounds that LOVE to run the countryside all day. When they want to cool down, they just come home for a little TLC and rest...and just take a little dip into my Koi pond!! But that's okay, because I know that they have a way of cooling down when I'm not home. They also get kisses from my Koi!
Keeping your pet healthy during the summer is not hard at all. Simply keep in mind that they are much like us in some regards. They want to relax, have a cool drink and perhaps a dip in the pool. If you are going to walk them, and you should, just make sure that they can handle it as well as you can. Take your time, let them rest, give then a nice treat of some ice cubes when you’re done. They will love you for the walk, and love you more for caring enough not to put them in harms way.
I hope this information was helpful!
Great Health To You And Your Pets!
