one more.........

First off I must give credit for this photo, it is from cuteoverload this is not a picture of our basset.


Norm and I had a basset hound for 14 years and this photo brought back just hundreds of memories. I should document those because they are just so funny. Dumbroad (yes that was her name) but registered with the AKC as Funny Girl.

Allow me to share just one now. We had an early dinner because we had to attend something and we were running late. I must tell you that one of the dinner items was corn on the cob. So because we were late for whatever I thought what the heck I'll clean up when we get back. No, no, no you never do that if you have a basset. Well when we returned home that sweet puppy ate every cob that was left on the table..........corn cob and all. God I think there were four could have been five. I called the vet to ask if there was any kind of a danger for our dog. He laughed hysterically and said "who knows". ROFLMAO!!! I don't know if Norm and I slept at all that nite just so we could keep and eye on poor Dumbroad. Nothing, I'm telling ya nothing at all happened. She must have had the constitution of a goat. I know about goats cause we had a goat once.

ETA~~~~~my niece "little bird" was about the same age as Dumbroad, maybe the dog was a year or two older, anyhooooo niece was not allowed to use certain words and dumb was one of them. Sooooo she took to calling the dog deedum.........too cute huh!!

More Dumbroad stories and maybe a goat story or two.............stay tuna'd..........

Oh my god! I did see that photo and thought of deedum. It does resemble her, doesn't it? What a funny girl and yes, it did bring back some memories. How about here opening up the Christmas package with the walnuts and eating them!
