Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Meet Shelby (red/white) and Zoey (tri-color) our Basset Hound girls. We've had Bassets for the past 12 years. This is our second bonded pair and both are rescues. These two can usually be found either roaming the fenced backyard via their doggy door or sleeping on the couch. Contrary to popular belief, Bassets needs exercise and these two enjoying doing the "Basset 500" around our house and yard. Bassets are the sweetest dogs ever and great family pets! They will let you squeeze them until their heads pop off. I've never met another animal that likes to cuddle so much.
This is Shelby. She came to us as a foster with heartworms. We knew there was no way we could let someone adopt her after caring for this sick dog for two months. We are failed foster parents! Shelby sleeps with us every night. If we try to ignore her, she howls and growls and carries on vocally in a way only Bassets know how. The backyard is her domain. She's a lizard hunter and sometimes uses the large grasses in the backyard to scratch her back. You'll see her slowly circling them in almost a trance...we call it her therapy. lol
Here's Zoey. She was a rescue from a longtime breeding and show home where the owner became very ill. Zoey unfortunately spent her first seven months in a backyard with very little contact with people. We stepped in when she was seven months old to rescue her. She spent the first night in our backyard. Slowly she came in the house and began to establish trust. Now, two years later, she is a loving family dog. She still does not trust men but otherwise has adapted completely. She is a total clown and never misses a meal. She's my morning alarm clock.
Here they are this morning on a trail walk near our house. We have numerous state parks nearby and these girls love to walk on the trails. There was plenty of horse and deer scent to follow today. Zoey even tried to roll in a bit of "deer" to bring it home with us. Yea...lol I'm guessing after a long walk today, we might see them here in these positions tonight...
This is a daily occurrence at our house! I hope you enjoyed meeting the girls. Can't wait to see all your pets at Debbie Doos Pet "Partay" Come on by and meet your favorite bloggers furry friends. Be back soon with a project and a gate update!
