I'm in Paradise!!

Welcome to Paradise Valley!

Today, I met my new foster family -- the Moores. They live in Paradise Valley, which is a little town between Scottsdale and Phoenix. (Phoenix is where Holly brought me last Saturday for the AZBHR's Waddle O' the Green.) I'm still kind of pooped out from all that fun, so we took our first day together resting and getting to know each other.

The Moore household is run for the convenience of their two Bassets, Lizzy and Mr. Darcy. They really thought I smelled good! Lizzy is kind of bossy, but Mr. Darcy told me just to do as she says, and we'll all get along fine. Mom won't let her get too rough with us boys. Notice, Mom, that I remembered my manners and presented my belly when meeting a new, bigger dog. They were very nice to me. They are named for characters in foster mom Sherry's favorite book, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Lizzy and Darcy have a big yard that is just for them, but they share it with lots of wildlife. There are desert cottontails, an occasional coyote (who always runs away), and more birds than we could count -- quail, grackles, doves, owls, hawks, oh my! They can be noisy. Interestingly, these beautiful basset hounds, bred for centuries to hunt rabbits, peacefully co-exist with the rabbits. Well, Lizzy says they leave snacks for her, but I think that's kind of gross. I guess it just proves that we bassets get along with everyone.

Tomorrow, my foster family and I are going out to do some sightseeing, so I will have more pictures and a new report for you soon. I miss you, Mom, but I am having fun!
