Hey y'all! When I got divorced 6 years ago, my ex husband got Rufus and I got the kids. Now, I'm in a house with a fenced yard, the kids are older and just HAD to have another. Baby Petunia is my 5th basset I've had throughout my life. Unfortunately our closest basset rescue, 2 1/2 hours away won't adopt to me because we are in a different state, so I had to get a puppy. Whew! This is a lot more work than I remember! This puppy has some sort of skin allergy, so I came on line to see if maybe somebody knows something my vet doesn't. I'm already $800 into vet bills for this constant scratching and we've only had her a month. As a last resort, he took skin samples to send off-so now she's in a cone until the stitches heal.
