New Addition

After taking a break from blogging for a few days to put my house and life back in order after having an extremely busy month I have a very special announcement.

Part of my reason for a brief blogging break was to get my house "Bloodhound" proof. Meet our newest additions, Earl.  Earl is a 2 year old Bloodhound that we adopted from the South Central Bloodhound Club/Rescue.

The first night was alittle hard on Earl.  He wasn't sure what he should be doing and where he should be laying.  He quickly found the sofa and everything was ok. 

Earl with his foster Daddy, Mark.  Mark took such good care of Earl until he was ready for his new home.  When Mark received Earl he was under weight, and unsure about life.  Mark quickly brought him our of that and got him to gain weight at a healthy pace.  Earl is now 86 lbs of solid muscle. 

We are very excited about our new addition and can't wait to learn more about bloodhounds and get to know Earl.
