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!

What a great bunch of dogs….and pictures! Love how floppy Louie is! Puppy breath is just the best! We lost our little boy last week to bladder cancer! He was the best dog ever….for 12 years. We miss him terribly! Made me smile to see a cute little puppy! Thanks for that!

OMG he is so dang cute, you cant get any more adorable than that. Every time I see a hound with those big floppy ears you cant help but want to go play with the ears….lol My uncle used to have them on his farm. 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 puppies cheered me up! My 3 Yorkies are insane retarded. They keep us rolling =0 I can never get them to look at the camera at once. They deliberately turn their heads before the flash. I have had them for 5 years and have maybe 5 pictures of them all looking at the camera at the same time! Joe

My aunt & uncle always had basset hounds. One would pass and the next day they went out and bought a new puppy. I can’t remember ever them not owning one!

OMG, the pictures were great. I feel bad for Louie because I wonder if his ears ever get in his way. Plus, I’m wondering how on Earth you got all three of them to line up and look at the camera at the same time. Excellent. I love puppies, to me all dogs are still puppies.
