Default 1-30-2011 RIP Austie

Today is our Austin's two year anniversary. He was our second basset; our first rescue. We'd just lost Lulu, our first, just three weeks prior on Jan 8th. RIP Sweet Austie...
This is the picture from the rescue website that melted our hearts
(note the cross eyes... )


and this is the day we said goodbye


Hope you're still enjoying the free all you can eat buffet at the bridge austin and I can't wait to see you and lulu again someday!

Thanks guys.
well here's the deal... we're still sad and still miss him but he's in a better place and they had room in their house to get MEMEMEMEEEEEEEEEE and then adopt charlie brown.

That being said... I heard a hoomin the other day saying something about how Lulu and Austin were at the bridge and GUIDING them towards the most incorrigible hound on the planet. But that can't be right bc they adopted me right after...
so that would make me... wait...
Grrrrrr!!!!

he human drank something funny after lifting his glass above his head and saying Austin's name.

Then he walked funny.

Hoominz are stoopid. But they feed me, so...
