New Addition to The HoundDog Family

We would like to introduce to you our newest addition to The HoudDog Family.

Shelby joined our family on Saturday (4/25/2015).  Our rescue received a very PG basset and her husband into GABR on 2/13/2015.  Momma was transferred to a foster home on 2/14 and the morning of 2/15 she gave birth to 6 babies (5 males and 1 female).  We were lucky enough to be selected to be able to adopt and bring this sweet girl home and into our family.  It has been 6 years since a puppy has joined our family so things are a little hectic but going well.





We know have something more to blog about.  This girl has personality so we will begin documenting her journey as she grows.

Working Our Way Back

Hello Friends,

We are slowly working our way back into the blogging world again.  We took an extensive break while the humans handled some grown up things.  We all survived that crises, thank goodness.  Then just as things were going well we lost Amiee very suddenly on 10/29/2014.  That was a real shocker and we are still working through our grief with that.  But when we lost Amiee realized just how much we missed all our blogging friend support.  We visit some people on that thing called FB but that is mostly a Mom thing and not a HoundDog thing.  We told her this is where we the HoundDogs need to be hanging.

We were able to get back into the grove of things just in time to get included in the "big" Christmas Card Exchange.  We opted out of the Christmas Gift Exchange as life still is very busy and hectic for the human typist.  If only the paws would cooperate we could operate this blog all by ourselves.  BOL.  We are super looking forward the Card Exchange as that is always a hugh hit at our house becuase we get a zillion more then the humans.

We thought maybe you would like a brief update on each one of us in case you are coming over for the first time or coming back after us being gone for so long.

Winston is still one of best loving basset around.  He has been having a rough time since we lost Amiee a few weeks ago and seems to be depressed at times.  He looks for her and whines for her.  Today he appears to have an upset tummy as he didn't eat breakfast and it has been making some pretty weird noises today.  Mom gets so worried and says, if he doesn't eat tonight a trip to the vet for a check up.  Can't take no chances right know.

I Bella am one happy hound.  I miss my basset friend Amiee but Mommy says she is spending some time with Cleo and Tabby and we will see her again in another time.  I love my brother Winston and I can be anoy him pretty good right know.  My sister Rosie is just a hard headed hound prefers to be alone or sit in the chair with Mom.  Such a sad situation since our human Dad is the most loving Dad.  But someone did something bad to her and she still has trust issues.  Any way back to me, did I say I wa a happy hound, or yea I did.  We all went to the waddle this past September and had a great time.  I was even a good girl and got along with everyone.  I went to a Halloween costume contest in October for a local rescue, only tried to eat one little snarky dog.  I won first prize though as I went as a Southern Belle.  I will be going to see Santa this Saturday and have the most beautiful Christmas dress and hat to wear.  I will be sure to post all about that day.






Rosie, well as I mentioned earlier she is just her own kinda of hound in her own little world.  She loves our Mom and she loves us, just a little nervious when it comes to Dad, silly girl.  She needs to learn to let go of the past.  We love her and she can be a little silly, she loves treats belly rubs, being brushed and going to the dog wash.  See I told she was a little different.  But we will keep her.

Any way, we have lots of updates to do and one thing that will need updated is the blog header.  We will have to be getting with Zoolatary for a new design once we have some more pennies in the penny jar.

We will chat later and I get the human on to checking out blogs.

Amiee - ATB (10/29/2014)

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

I know we have not blogged much, we have had a lot going on in our lives (personnel family issues) and Mom taking on more things with the basset rescue.  Then that stupid Facebutt came along and we just slowly faded away.

We have checked in from time to time on our blog friends as we have lost so many fur-friends.  Unfortunately, I am here today to say that we lost Amiee Wednesday evening (10/29/2014).

Was not eating well and lost some weight but was very active.  Actually all weekend long she was outside enjoying the nice weather and yapping up a storm.  We took her in Monday after her blood results from Friday showed high Calcium (off the charts calcium).  She received fluids and all test were run x-rays, ultrasounds, etc.  No signs of cancer but she was not getting better.  They suspected ParaThyroid (very rare), which is a nodal that sits on the parthyroid (near the thyroid). The ultra sound my vet took showed nothing so we transferred her to the U of I Animal Hospital in Champaign, IL on Wednesday morning.  She was a very sick little girl at this point.  Unfortunately, the blood test to confirm this was taking forever and her little body was exhausted at this point.

They called us around 8:00pm and said she was having trouble breathing and would call us back.  They called us back around 8:30 and said she was getting no better, so we headed that way.  We had an hour drive and unfortunately she passed away 10 minutes before we got back to her.  We were allowed to see her and say our good byes, but damn this was just sucked the wind right out from us.

Run Free my Sweet Baby Girl, you were the most sweetest, loving, girl we could have ever asked for.  Winston, Bella, Rosie are missing you and Daddy is really having a heard time.  Somebody else needed you more then us, the thing is they failed to ask us because it just wasn't true.....We needed you pretty DAMN bad and you were just two young and had so much more love to give.

Amiee Jeakins - 9/26/2008 - 10/29/2014
