Our little basset tested our patience and agility this weekend. You think those short legs can’t run fast... until they’re gone. This Sunday, Ardy just took off towards the woods and we chased after him through the woods for over an hour. We are so thankful for our neighbors that live near the farm for finding him. We tracked the route and Ardy had us running over three miles through thorns, creeks, and mud. The plus to all of this is that for once we weren’t chasing the cows... the downside is now we have to buy a dog collar GPS for some serious $$$, but all worth it to keep our little basset safe and close. Ardy passed out asleep once he got home, three miles through the woods is a lot for those short little legs!
Back story: we rescued Ardy back in November from a shelter in NC, all we know is that he was neglected and was a free roamer. We had been working with him to train him off leash... but I guess you can never get too comfortable. #farmdog #rescue
