Between August and December, we lost three valued four-legged members of our household; two feline and one canine. Cats are now out of the picture due to a family member's allergies, but we always knew we'd have more dogs. We just didn't know who. Now we do.
Yesterday, we brought home Bradford Bartholomew Bratwurst. He is a purebred basset hound. His previous human was unable to keep him and he needed a home. We needed a dog. He is friendly, polite, funny and utterly adorable. Welcome home, Bradford.
