Meet the newest Perdue! His name is Memphis and he is a Fox Hound that was rescued from a camp ground near Red Oak, Iowa. It sounds like he was pretty lucky that there was a volunteer from the rescue around when the park found him or else he may have not made it. And now he is living a fantastic life at the Perdue farm … or at least it was still fantastic for everyone when I left on Thursday 🙂
We picked him up on Tuesday and let him get accustomed to his new house, new cat siblings and new people before heading to the cabin for some swimming, sun and bocce. He seemed to LOVE spending time with us and exploring everything. And yes, he does have a pretty awesome hound bark! I think he is going to be a GREAT farm dog and may even keep the mean, stray cats (or rabbits!) away.
Tina saved him a bone from our meal a night or two before so he got a tasty treat on day one. It must have been a bit too rich for his belly because on the way home it came back up … but that could also be blamed on Margee’s driving 🙂
He also has amazing, floppy ears that in the crazy strong wind nearly lifted him off the ground …
Boy, he is a great dog! I can’t wait to get back down to see him soon. And the fam, of course 🙂
… that last one is my favorite from the day 🙂 What a perfect pair!!!!
