Here are a few quick pictures of my new hound, Harvey (he does not like to stay still for pictures). Harvey will be three months next week. He joins my formers Herman and Harold as bassets lucky enough to have me as an owner. :unsure: Actually Harvey's great-granddad Y. Lee Coyote was Harold's daddy. I did the Harvey 1440 and drove from Colorado to Missouri and back to get him this weekend. He was very well-behaved on the trip home and his appetite perked up within minutes after getting here. He's a pretty outgoing little guy and has been very friendly to the neighbors and their dogs. My old coonhound Henry has not been too receptive to Harvey's playful overtures. We did have a nice walk through some tough terrain this moring, though we had to make one detour around a steeper slope because Harvey's 4WD hasn't kicked in yet. At the end we took him to Harold memorial gardens for a moment's reflection. Thanks to Jim Rogers of J&S bassets for setting him aside for me. This one I'm going to train on rabbits - as soon as I figure out how to do it myself.

See how green the grass is in Missouri. Better get used to Colorado dirt.


Henry is skeptical. "He can run, but can he hunt?"














Harvey just a few days old.


Just to show you what we're up against, a black bear and her yearling have been making the rounds of my bird feeder lately.

Harvey is a handsome puppy! Your coonhound is quite good looking as well! Congrats on your new addition and keep the pictures coming! We can never get enough pictures!

Harvey is a fine looking hound. He reminds me of my Albert (soon to be four years old this month). They grow up so fast. Congrats! :D

Great pictures of a sweet little dog. Bears!!?? I get spazzed out when there are possums and moles in my yard, can't imagine how I'd react to bears.

Harvey's beautiful, and I know you are going to have fun filled days ahead. I love the picture of skeptical Henry and Harvey. He has that "I can't believe how short his legs are" look!!

I thought Henry's look was more, 'You..you..aren't staying, right? Harvey is truly darling.

You're right about that. My wife volunteers at the local shelter and she's brought a couple of dogs home for sleepovers and Henry hasn't minded because they leave him alone (although when Dolly the dachshund wouldn't stop barking he retired to the furthest room in the house). But Harvey's attention is a little too much for the old boy. He's just got to get away from him. I didn't think he'd react this way. Last night he even went upstairs - he's never done this in 18 months in this house.

He's just beautiful! I live in Missouri, and can attest to how green the grass is - lovely here right now (in between tornado outbreaks!)
