I just want to tell everyone about my new pet. She's an 8-yr-old basset hound mix with a deformed front leg. (Apparently no one ever pointed that out to her so she manages quite well.) She was in an over-crowded Indiana shelter on the Ohio River for several weeks and then moved to a shelter near me in northern Indiana. I thank whomever initially raised her for lovingly caring for her and creating such a sweet and obedient furry child. Of course, she had canine pneumonia and gastro-intestinal problems but she's worth the time and money spent.
