Guess what?

 She's ours!

This is Basil!  She is a smooth hair dapple dachshund that we adopted from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in Washington, DC.  She grew up in a puppy mill in South Carolina, before Lucky Dog rescued her.  Since then, she's been in and out of foster homes.  She's a resilient little thing though - in spite of everything, she's super healthy, 100% house trained, and has just the sweetest personality you could imagine.

It's been a long-time dream of mind to adopt a dog, and I've always adored dachshunds, so adopting her is truly a dream come true.  I promise to share more pictures soon!  

In the meantime, I want to thank Andrea for featuring Tulips & Tea on her blog the other day!  Please stop by and check out Andrea's great blog, which is filled with a great balance of personal reflections and snapshots of her daily life.
