New Lens

Picked up a Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM last week because I needed something a little wider.  The first thing you do with a lens is take pictures of your basset hound to be sure everything is in order.  99 inspects the new lens:


The Bassaholic Intervention

Sooner or later it would come to this.  I knew it. I had just hoped Venus would come to her senses sooner rather than later.  But today was the last straw.  It started as any other day.  My mother was nice enough to get me a basset planter to use on my porch.  It was a fine, welcome addition if I do say so myself.


I knew today was the day to plant, in it so I had asked for some help from my resident bassholes.  99 of course is always willing to help her dad, whatever the occasion:


Kaos turns 5

Kaos turns 5 on May 6, so we always celebrate her birthday with Venus to kind of "class it up" a little bit. And with a face like this, you see what I mean by 'classin it up'


Venus Turns 6

The dog that never ceases to amaze me turned a robust 6 years and we had to find a way to celebrate! 



So first things first.... I asked Venus what she wanted to do for her birthday and she said she wanted to blow her allowance on pizza and video games like any other 6 year old.  Who am I to argue?





99 was born October 29, 2001.  After a great deal of bartering with Jane Baetz of Olde Fashion basset hounds I was able to bring 99 home to live with me in October of 2006. 


99 is probably the sweetest, most gentle dog I have ever had the pleasure of being around.  She is definitely the smartest basset I've ever known.  Not saying there aren't some smart bassets out there, but I am a bit bias.  This poor girl has been my test subject for learning how to use my digital SLR for her ability to pretend to be a cigar store Indian.


99 had two litters while she was with Jane.  One of her kids is Kaos, who lives with my mother.
