I'm sorry you are having such a hard time right now. And Betty, I love basset hounds! I use to have one six years ago, plus a few other dogs, ten aquariums, cats, and two horses. when I was going through my divorce I had to give them all up, except for one 29 gallon aquarium, helped me keep on going and had something else to focus on besides myself, no money, no car and no job, just one aquarium!! Sounds like a country song doesn't it!? Lol it took me a couple of years to get on my feet again but well worth the struggle and the fight I went through. Things will look up for you to.
