is a seven and half year old basset with an appetite like a garbage
can, you can tell that just by looking at her. I bought her
as a puppy and she immediately took over the household. I
went thru the stage of her stealing rolls of toilet paper from the
bathrooms, then pulling off as much paper as she could all over
the house to get to the core, something like eating a tootsie roll
pop. Then we were in the terrible two's when she would grab
my undies and run through the house with me chasing her out the
doggie door to the back yard.
Then came Pepper, a part Yorky, friends brought her over along with
carrying case, toys and etc, they needed to find a good home for
her. Now who could refuse this 6 week old little ball of black
fur that sat in the middle of my hand? I told them if she
got along with Duffy I guess I could keep her? Well that took
all of about 30 seconds. Fast forward, she just had her sixth
Now while Duffy lays there waiting to be fed, Pepper runs around
playing with all kinds of stuffed toys having a ball. When they
go out at night, if Duffy is too slow to come back in, Pepper heads
out the doggie door to fetch her, here they come with Pepper pulling
Duffy back thru the doggie door with the long basset ear in her
mouth giving her what for all the time.
Its a joy to have these two in my life, they wake up in good
moods and don't ask much from me but give back a hundred fold in
love and companionship.
