|I had to put Winston down 05 January 2016|
|Sadie passed away early Saturday morning 15 September 2018|
I bought Heidi online from Guardian Angel Basset Rescue in July 2011 here in the Midwest. Since day one she has blended into her new home with no problems. I cannot believe the rescue service retrieved her from an animal shelter as a voluntary turn in. Based on her medical records we thought she was around 2-1/2 years old when I bought her. That would make her 9 years old sometime in December 2017. She has a great nose and is stronger than Sadie when she picks up a scent of a rabbit. She loves to sleep and will not wake up as the same time as the other two hounds. She has been labeled "Queen of the Couch".
After a phone call conversation to get to know more about "Dipstick", I made arrangements to pick her up, a 4 hour drive away. By the next day I talked myself out of it and canceled the trip because I thought 4 hounds would be too much. A few days later on August 28, 2015 I emailed to see if she was still available, she was and I picked her up on August 30, 2015. She has been a great addition for Sadie, who needed someone with her size and strength to play with. I found it no harder to care for two bloodhounds rather than just one. She will be 9 years old August 2018.
