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!!

are you sure Louie can’t fly? In some of those pictures if you had said “Louie can fly”… I would have gone “yep, look at him go flapping those cute adorable dumbo ears”.

Ah, Amanda! I come here loving your fonts, your food, your style. I only pray for a reprieve from the Basset Hound obsession I’ve started from visiting Ree. Now, I have to explain to my hubby that I can no longer hold out. If we weren’t leaving for another country to live for a couple years, I’d be snuggling a frito footed, floppy eared Bassett, ignoring the glare from my Aussie Shepard. Thank you for this adorable post.
