Louie

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 2

Meet Louie! He’s a hound dog.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 3

Louie is Miley and Howie’s new cousin. This sweet little fella belongs to Kevin’s brother.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 17

We got to meet him last weekend and I fell in love. I vowed to puppy snatch Louie and bring him home with me.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 4

He’s got a heart-shaped spot on his shoulder. Melt.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 1

And puppy breath. Sweet, precious puppy breath.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 6

I miss puppy breath.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 5

Louie can run!

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 8

But not for long before he tires out.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 9

He’s got comically large, adorable, floppy ears.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 7

And ginormous Frito feet.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 10

He’s soft, wrinkly, wiggly, scoopable, and huggable.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 16

I’m definitely puppy snatching this cutie with his smooshy, kissable jowls and wet, curious nose.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 18

Louie can howl.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 12

Play with me Howie!

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 13

Howie just doesn’t understand.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 11

They don’t speak the same language.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 14

Louie tried so hard to keep up with Miley and Howie but they just ran right over him.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 19

Howie is a little jealous that he’s not the baby anymore.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 20

Oh Howie. My little gray-faced man. I am in complete denial of the fact that you’re almost 5 years old.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 21

This is my girl. My darlin’ heart.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 15

Being this cute is exhausting.

Louie the Basset Hound Puppy 22

And results in this.

Have a great Wednesday!

Bassett Hounds are great dogs! We have one who is about 10 years old that came from the Bassett Hound rescue of Birmingham. They are great with kids and are very loving. She is also very expressive both vocally and in her facial expressions! I hope they enjoy him for many happy years!

Thank you for making my day. These are the most precious pictures ever! Louie is absolutely adorable and that takes absolutely nothing away from Howie and Miley. I’ve spent much of the morning trying to help a woman who put an ad in the paper that said, “Help Bring Milo Home.” I called to tell her that I had seen him around our neighborhood. He came up in our yard and my two mini-daschaunds went crazy–they aren’t too receptive to visiting dogs! I hope they find Milo. By the way, Ree Drummond has two Louies, but I’m sure you already know that!! Have a great day, and my next dog is going to be a Bassett Hound!!

OMG he is so dang cute, you cant get any more adorable than that.

I remember him saying watch this he would pull there ear lightly and they would howl…of course I would have to speak up and say stop it..lol I loved the hounds they were so sweet. He would drive me crazy doing that…lol
By way love the last photo of the dogs sleeping how cute.

Your pictures are fantastic, they brought a smile to my face and also to my heart! I know what you mean about puppy breath. Thank you so much for sharing!

You MUST read “A Dog’s Purpose”. It is a wonderful story. Dogs know how we feel. When our only child died 3 years ago, our 2 pugs were the only ones who could make us smile. When i’m crying, the make, Lord Nibbler, will put his paws on my shoulderd and get really close to my face and gaze into my eyes. (Did you know that tears have a scent? And Miss Hattie May is so darling as well. Thanks for putting up these wonderful pictures.
