Today in the West Village, Nukah made a new friend, Sherlock, a basset from the same breeder in Pennsylvania as the one where we adopted Nukah. Sherlock is two years old with one brown and one blue eye. He’s from a different set of parents, but his roots are the same. It seemed like there was some familial recognition between the two puppies.
I’m happy that Nukah had the opportunity to reconnect with his past. Sherlock’s owner told us that he was her fourth basset. I asked her if she had any tips for training; she said she didn’t, that bassets are impossible to train.
Maybe some day Nukah will have a baby sister from the same breeder. I’ve already picked out her name: Copernicus, in memory of Cornelius.
