If you follow my twitter feed you may know that a desire to have a dog has been getting stronger over the last month. This probably started when I watched Ace for a while (and they took him from me, making me really pissed off in the process.)

I want a dog that can stay inside with us and at first I was searching for a beagle.

My best friend growing up was a beagle and I trust the breed. They are also small and don’t shed as much.

The main problem is that I can’t find one that isn’t the main version, with the taller stance and the more high strung temperment. The version I’m looking for is the shorter kind with darker markings and laid back attitude.

I realized that the qualities I am looking for is more associated with Basset, and since they are a similar kind of hound they have my interest at the moment.

I’m jumping the gun on this post, but I found out that they have monthly adoption events in town so I’m going to go check it out this weekend.

I guess I’m posting about this because it’s on my mind at the moment and I want to get the word out that I am in the market for a new friend. If you know anyone that can help I’d be interested to hear about it.
