The very same day that my beloved Billy went to The Bridge, I was told that a Basset named Agathon needed a new home. He is the litter brother of Steinar`s Emma. The family was breaking up, and unfortunatly neither could have Agathon in their new apartments. After a little thinking, I said yes.
Agathon arrived on January 15th.
He was a sweet boy, but not a very typical Basset in his ways. He loved the dogs, but didn`t want to relate much to people. He wouldn`t flip on his back for belly rubs, didn`t like to sleep or lie down next to anyone. And the poor boy was absolutly petrified of cats. And I have 2 cats. That is, Laban truly belives he is a Basset in a cat suit and behaves like a Basset .
Over the months, Mr A has changed a lot. Now, he loves cats, he loves people, he seeks contact and belly rubs. He has very slowly, but surely opened up and become a loveable Basset Hound!

Wonderful to see a dog go from sadness and despair to pure joy. Kudos to you for helping Agathon see how good life can be!

Thank you!
Well, he didn`t in the begginning. But now, he sure has spunk, allright!

He has developed and opened up very slowly. But this late summer and fall, he has come so very far with becoming a true Basset Hound!
I am so proud of my Mr A !
