Pets: Hunter – 13 year old lab mix, Bella and Remmy – 2 year old dachshund/lab mix (sibblings)

We adopted Hunter from the animal shelter when he was 2 years old. He is and has always been the sweetest boy. He loves watching animal TV shows and gets scared when there’s monsters on TV. When he was young he tried to find the dog from the TV, outside in the direction it had appeared to go. Today, he spends a lot of time on the couch until an animal comes on and he goes crazy yelling at the top of his lungs, usually scaring whoever is around.

We decided we wanted another addition to our family and we saw someone advertising dachshund/lab mixes so we went to meet them. There was only 2 left in the litter and I fell in love with these little black pups at first sight. But…I couldn’t imagine separating them. After 2 hours of deliberation I decided sadly to only bring the little girl home as much as it broke my heart. What I didn’t know was that my husband secretly paid for both and had his mom pick up the little boy and follow us home. His mom said he cried the whole was home until she pulled in. I didn’t hear or see him until I was sitting in the living room with Bella (his little sister) and he comes running down the hallway and around the corner at us! Of course I immediately broke into happy tears and couldn’t imagine not having both of them in my life.
