His name is Toby and he is a 5 month old mixed breed puppy that we adopted last week from a shelter.From the best estimates, he appears to be part labrador and part basset hound. He has short legs with turned out paws and a jogging gait that resembles a basset hound, but his littermates had longer legs and were mostly black like a labrador.
Here’s a picture of Toby with 2 of his siblings, taken at the shelter. You can see that his brothers looked a lot more like labs than he did.
This is the first dog I have ever had the privilege to own, and I am totally smitten.
How could anyone look into these soulful brown eyes and not take him home? I just love his two tan “eyebrows”.
We are literally having a ball, despite the additional time and care it takes to train a puppy.
Quilting will have to wait for now. I have a puppy who needs me. :-)
