Ain't Nuthin' Like A Hound Dog

Meet Zeke.
See Zeke with he who told me no more big dogs. He who told me no more dogs of any breed or size. He who loves dogs brought Zeke home. Zeke's owner will be going on the road for an undetermined period of time and cannot find anyone to keep his dog. He is willing to simply give us Zeke. He wants Zeke to have a good home. He knows us to be among those who love dogs.

Zeke came for a visit today to see if he would fit in with our other four legged children. Surprisingly, it was Wall-E who objected to a new member of our family. This is what I look like after only one small cup of coffee and no make-up. I suppose I could have cropped me out, but I rather liked the composition of the photo. Zeke is sweet and offering to be friends with Wall-E, but Wall-E is having none of it.


Zeke is a full blooded bloodhound. Say that three times fast. He is 8 months old and has papers ..... and all of his breeding equipment is still intact. For that reason I was afraid that Oscar would object. Oscar is our alpha dog. Oscar seemed to recognize that Zeke is still very young, therefore easy to train. Emmy was a little indignant that we are adding yet another male animal. She was already out-numbered. The old cat, Smokey, ignored the whole exchange and just watched.


See Zeke. See Zeke slobber. Ain't nuthin' like a big ole slobbery hound dog.

Zeke is cute! Plus I think it will be not time at all and he'll start thinking that he's one of those lap dogs too!

Awww! Zeke sure is a cutie, but it's hard to top Wall E in our hearts here in Illinois! I have a feeling Zeke will soon be going everywhere with a certain he who missed having a big dog! :P

Oh and my Tank has a tail that curls just like Zeke's tail! They should be a pair of slobbering, curled tail, laid back buddies!

OMG - Zeke is adorable. Slobbery, but adorable. We had a St. Bernard when i was a kid, also slobbery, but He who doesn't want any more dogs seems to like Zeke.

Zeke is a great looking dog. Reminds me of Duke on Beverly Hillbillies! I'm sure in time, everyone can get along!

Well, we didn't have as many of the little minions [dachsies] that you do, but Spot seemed to take to Scooby [our 120 lb pony, um. Chessie] just fine. She OWNS him. And he knows it.

Dachsies are like that.

Zeke is a doll baby. And he who now owns a bloodhound must be in heaven. Nice.

Have fun.

I am total fan of brown dogs.. and Zeke looks similar to my fiance's dog Milo, extremely loving and playful.

Sooo cute. I had a bassett hound (not a bloodhound) for 13 years and hound dogs are so friendly, gentle and loveable. Good luck with him!

Oh, he looks sweet. And it's always the ones who say 'never' that you have to keep an eye on...my husband says 'never another dog once ours is gone' and I don't believe it for a minute. Of course, his objection is the heartbreak of losing them...

He looks awesome in the hat!

What a beautiful dog.

You just need a pair of blue suede shoes and you've got the whole Elvis tribute collection.

And you look great fueled only by one cup of coffee.

I look worse without my make up.

Anywho, beautiful dog.

Hello Kathy
Your new dog has the most beautiful coloured coat - is it the same reddy brown in real life as in the photos? He who does and doesn't looks quite taken with Zeke - will he fit into to the golf cart when he who does or doesn't flits round the park looking for burst water pipes lol
Take care
Cathy
