Big Sister

We adopted a 1.5 year old Bloodhound last weekend. I am guessing she is the same age as HoneyBelle from the still growing teeth. I named her Juno which means "goddess" and "protector of women." Juno has had a rough start, a litter of pups before she herself is full grown, being tossed from a vehicle and abandoned, left to starve until a good woman takes her off the street and straight to the vet. She gets Juno well enough to find her a home. Which is ours. That is HoneyBelle's red, round butt to the left of the photo. She still has her devil costume on. This was Juno's first event so we did not overwhelm her too much by trussing her up in a costume. We took her to PetFest which is an event that supports our dog rescues. Juno received so many kisses, I hope she enjoyed herself. She is loved and has a home now. She and HoneyBelle have became fast friends. They both bay in unison when the train goes past, it is music to my ears.


  1. Awww I am just so happy for the girls and that Juno is in her furever home now!

  2. Hi! We are stopping by from HoundGirl's site to say hello!
    I love the meaning behind Juno's name and look forward to reading more about her!

  3. Wanted to stop by and say great news to hear about you adopting Juno. There is nothing better than a basset and a bloodhound baying in Unison. We miss those sounds, since we lost our rescued bloodhound in June at the age of 12. Juno is just beautiful and so glad she has found the good life. HoundDogMom and The Hounddogs

  6. Hello! Coming over from the "Hound Girl" and thought we'd say hello! Juno looks like a cutie! But her back story is so sad. So glad she's got a good new home!

  7. Congratulations on your new home, Juno! Now, if you need some mischievous ideas, please let me know. We bloodhounds have a reputation of chaos and destruction, of which we are extremely proud. If you have not done so, BE SURE to read Wimsey the NYC Bloodhound's blog, published each Friday. A MUST-READ for all bloodhounds (and their humans!!) It is a hilarious look at life from a bloodhound's perspective.

    We are so happy for you. Looking forward to hearing about your life!
