1) Put down a deposit on a new Honda Civic Hybrid, to be delivered in November
2) Adopted a dog
3) Donated a large sum of money to Sarah Palin, to assist in name recognition (ok, enough politics from me already)
Two of the above choices are true. Guess which two.
Introducing Rosie! She’s a five year old basset/beagle mix. I think she may be more basset than beagle, ’cause she’s pretty low-key. I’m pretty sure we just adopted an ottoman with a pulse.
She is very definitely a mama’s girl. She loves on me something fierce. Her favorite thing is belly rubs and hugs. And sleeping. She’s real big on sleeping. Rosie the Wonder Basset is also a little on the heavy side and could stand to lose a few. I may not be an expert, but I suspect a basset shouldn’t weigh 48 and one-half pounds.
Rosie doesn’t bark. Haven’t heard her yet. She went over and met Haley, our neighbors’ three year old labradoodle, did the whole sniffing thing, and left. Haley is still quite the puppy and Rosie was having none of that. Might interfere with finding a shady spot in the yard. Or sleeping.
So I’m sure there will be more stories of Rosie the Wonder Basset. She’s been with us about a day and we don’t know what we did without her. Astonishing that a passed-out ottoman can make such an impression.
