Margo came home with us January 2, 2010. On Monday I took her to my vet who checked her for a micro-chip. She had none. My husband and I had discussed options and possibly keeping her as our own. But we both are not ready to do so. This sweet hound is house-broke but I had her spend much of the time outside in the yard. The days we had very cold weather, she stayed indoors.
I had remained in contact with Basset Hound Rescuefor adoption options. I applied to foster her and this organization has specific requirements. They have been a wealth of information to me and I am very happy to have their help. I sent a description of Margo with plenty of pictures. Since she has gained weight since I brought her home, she looks much better and happier too.
Next week, we will go to Denton to the vet and meet one of the Basset Rescue representatives who will help place her right away. It is important that she does not stay with me much longer for she will then consider this home. She probably already does since she gets quite a bit of love and attention! She has dug a few holes in my yard though and if you have kept up with my blog over the past 12 months, you know how important gardening is to me. I cannot have a hole-digging hound dog!
There’s more. I will update next week after her visit with the vet.
