Yep, Freddie turns two today! It's hard to believe that two years ago today, Fred was born at Autumn Blaze Bassets just three days after saying our goodbyes to Barney. I started this blog to help cope with the loss of Barney and it turned into Life With Fred. I still can't thank Becki from Autumn Blaze Bassets enough for helping get us through that tough time by sending us daily pictures, videos and updates of the puppies and giving us the chance to open our hearts to another sweet basset. We knew we wanted a tri-color boy and there were two to choose from.
They were called puppy G and puppy H.
We were allowed to go and pick out the one we wanted after they were 4 weeks old. I knew it would be the one that came to me. Which one did we pick?
Puppy G! This is me at Becki's the day we picked out puppy G, a.k.a. Fabulous Fred! The hard part after picking him out was having to leave him for another month.
The next picture is the day we brought him home.
I think he always had that "bugger" look in his eyes.
He's been a window washer from the start too!
So Happy Birthday to my baby boy and thank you for filling that hole in our hearts!
"Freddie! Come on. Please put a hat on for just one picture! Everyone wants to see you in a birthday hat!"
"No! I don't want to! I don't want to wear the same hat Gloria did! I want my own!!"
"I've got bacon!"
"Well, maybe just one!"
