I'm approximately 6 years old, but no one's really sure because I came from a rescue centre. I spent 6 months in there and because of that I have a few 'issues'! One is claustrophobia. But as long as the downstairs door is left open and I have the run of the stairs I don't howl. My owners also leave the radio on for me. Radio 4 is very soothing and stops me digging up the carpet.
I'm not scared of loud noises like thunder or fireworks, but if my owner steps on a crisp packet while we're out walking I do get scared. I'm also really nervous around other dogs. I want to play, but bigger dogs scare the daylights out of me.
Officially I'm Beagle crossed with Basset Hound but my owners are sure there are a few more breeds in there somewhere; a true Heinz 57. But wherever I go I'm told I'm beautiful - and I believe it!
The second photo is of me duck watching. There's a river at the bottom of my garden and I spend hours down there, shaking with excitement, watching the ducks.
