"A Work In Progress" This would describe both myself and this web site. Suffice it to say I have more to share and
more to say about my kids (Basset Hounds), hobbies and politics than I do myself.
Finally made it to the half century mark August 10, 2010!

Just a little bit of Attitude
Brandi was adopted from the Animal Foundation (Lied Animal
Shelter) here in Las Vegas May 16, 2002. She is definitely the "Alfa" female and may have a bit of cat in her! She'll
also let you know when it's time for breakfast and dinner.

My "Little Man"
Say no to these eyes...I dare you!
I rescued Chip from Las Vegas Basset Rescue, November 3, 2002. He was
under weight and infested with parasites and worms. At almost two years old, he still looked like a puppy with ears that were
too long. These days he's just a little nut and a real lover!
The "Big Guy"
In Memoriam March 1, 2009
Theo came into my life December of 2001 just a couple of months before
I said goodbye to my first Basset Hound, Raquel, in February 2002.
often referred to Theo as a big Lump of Love. His favorite past time was to sit in my lap, all 45 pounds of him and lick my
face incessantly. Every now and then, I had to stop him but more often than not, I let him kiss me all he wanted. I always
felt he was giving me all the love he could because somehow I believed deep down I would lose him too soon. As it has turned
out, it didn't matter when I said goodbye to him, it was still too soon. It's always too soon to say goodbye to a
pet you love.
Theo came to me from the Nevada SPCA in
December 2001. The thought at the time was that Theo could stimulate Raquel and maybe she would hold on longer. Additionally
I would have Theo to love me when I lost Raquel and did I ever need him.
In Memoriam February 2002
Raquel 1987 - 2002
Shivering, abandoned and all alone I found a
puppy and brought her home Warm and loved and feeling swell I named my blessing ... Raquel
laughter, love and tears We were blessed for sixteen years Through every challenge along the way We waked
together from day to day
We both grew older, we both grew gray And now Raquel has slipped away I have
a heart so filled with love I know it was touched by the Lord above.
"He's" given me much to
ease pain and strife A wealth of love to enrich my life "He" blesses me with gifts so well That's
why he gave me a friend named Raquel
She brought me comfort and gave me love She was a gift ... from the Lord
above I always knew one day she'd depart But that forever she'd live on in my heart
To home she
will go in peace and in love And look down as she scampers in the heavens above No more struggle or pain or fight
left to give Forever in peace and in love she will live
Running and playing and happy she'll be Blowing
kisses from heaven as she looks after me I once had a puppy a Basset named Raquel But now the Lord has her and I
know she'll do well
With others I've loved she'll play pain free Chasing Angels and rabbits
through eternity I know that we'll find each other again Cause that's how it is in heaven with friends
