Winston is our (almost) 14 week old Basset Hound and we are in LOVE with him.  After spending a week at my parent's house, Landon fell in love with all of their dogs.  He has always adored each and every type of animal.  However he has had allergy problems with certain breeds of dogs.  My brother's coon dog licked him and he broke out in hives.  Turns out Landon was allergic to one of the ingredients in the dog food.  After spending a week at my parent's house and being around all of their dogs (They have a lot of dogs), he did not have any allergic reactions.

Landon kept begging us for a dog.  It was killing me.  Every little boy needs a dog.  David and I have always wanted a basset hound.  I started looking around at rescue places in our area, but all of the basset hounds were around 10 years old.  Then we found one that was born in April and we fell in love with him.  We picked him up yesterday.

He slept all through the night in our bedroom.  Granted David and I didn't get any sleep.  It is like bringing home a new baby and you are waiting on them to start crying.  He never woke up!

Welcome to our family, Winston.  We are looking forward to making priceless memories with you!
