Hello everyone! Dustin and I have an announcement to make! We would like to tell you that we have a new addition to our household! Meet Jet, our lovable Basset Hound!
He’s 7.5 weeks old. His ears touch the floor. He a sniffing and chewing monster. But he loves to cuddle!
We have had many discussions about getting a dog and narrowing down to what breed. Dustin wanted to get a bulldog and I wanted to get a Corgi. But some how, we both fell in love with a Basset Hound. It was probably because I go on Pioneer Women’s website daily to see if she has any updates about Charlie, her Basset Hound, and obviously had to share them with Dustin!
As new puppy parents, I think Dustin and I have done very well. The first couple nights he cried in his kennel but last night, I think he slept through the whole night. The only reason that I can think of why he did that is Dustin took him for a walk up and down a rather large hill. Dustin said half way through he stopped and sat down at the bottom of the hill, telling him he’s not walking up that again!
I know many family and friends wanted to see photos. I tried my best to upload photos as soon as possible but guess what, Jet is a little camera shy. Every time I take a photo, he either turns his head or runs away! We’ll work on that one!
But that’s all I have for now. This weekend we are going to take Jet for a long car ride to Rapid City. We need to get him a few essentials like a collar, leash, a small kennel for when he goes to MN or to Bristol, and chew toys of course! I’ll be sure to update more about Jet as we cross some major barricades!
