Cuddy makes basset number 3. She is a sweet heart and blending in well with our other hounds. Samantha "mothers" her, and Jake guards her from fierce vacuum cleaners.
Her family background is hunting and tracking. She spends much of her time nose to the ground and tail in the air. I am considering training her for agility as she runs at the speed of light, leaping garden edgers and dodging through the yard like a pro. My son is in graduate school and daughter will be leaving for college in a few months... so sounds like time for a good hobby for me
