Our daughter had a couple trips lined up so we told her we would come up and take care of the hounds. These two basset hounds are getting up in years but they are fun to watch, that is when they get the energy to do something. One of their favorite things to do is watch doggy TV. That is when you open the front door so they can watch for someone walking by or maybe even another dog. Then they start barking and run out the back door through the doggy door and bark like crazy. Of course after that they haft to come in and lay down for a nap.
