Our little buddy, Basil, passed away yesterday in Houston. We were rewarded with so many instances of joy watching him run through the yard, laughter at his crazy antics and lots of snuggles.
Basil was our mini-dachsund, the runt of the litter who just seemed to know he was Kate's from the first instant they met. He won the hearts of everyone who came to visit, and we know there are many who are saddened along with our family.
This is Basil on a floating lounge chair in our Peru swimming pool. One of his feats was to catch a pigeon in this yard. All that was left over were feathers! We had so many adventures with this little buddy, and are so thankful we had his company for 11 1/2 years.
