I think Bogie had a very enjoyable first day! I'm definitely already in love with him.

So far he has been amazing. No accidents in the house, not one howl or bark. He lets you know exactly when he wants out, and gets right to his business! He hasn't gone after the trash can or tried to get into anything, other than my bed of course. He walks on a leash very well until he sees another dog or a squirrel. If the dog is close, he just sits down and waits for the dog to come by, and they start a sniff-fest. He especially liked a black lab puppy and a basset/rottie mix! Unless its a small dog. I think they look too much like chew toys to him.

We both thank everyone who gave us advice in the last post! I've wanted a dog my entire life, but when I was young my mother worked long hours and she wasn't sure as a kid I would actually take care of one. So instead I worked at a puppy store, volunteered at a shelter, and offered to pet sit all of my friends and mom's friends dogs whenever they were out of town. I am starting the rest of my life and I wanted to start it with a brand new best friend! And so far, I definitely think I've made the right decision.

So without further adieu, here's Bogie!

Looks like he is right at home. He's one lucky Hound to have found such a great owner. He is certainly one handsome hound.

Aroooos from Bogie!!!
