a Basil and Rosemary holiday…

Basil and Rosemary

Meet Rosemary.

Basil finally got a sister, just in time for the holidays. 

We have been spending time bonding over the last few days, and today we are having the whole family over – with two more dachshunds, Jake and Elwood! Tomorrow is little Rosie’s fifth birthday – we adopted her from the local rescue over the weekend.


happy holidays from all four of us.

      thank you Dianne! they are doing very well so far – she is very sweet and Basil always has been, so it seems to be a good match :)

    • Kristina Sloggett says

      thanks, Heather! she sure is a sweetie, she’s doing well here and I think Basil is getting used to her 😉

    Congratulations! Our newest puppy addition has made a much brighter (and more chewed) light in our home and hearts! I’m sure Rosie will do the same for you.

    (hopefully without the chewing).

    • Kristina Sloggett says

      ha – funny you say that – today she was chewing THE CARPET of all things. she stopped though… I hope that doesn’t continue, I’d have to lock up my shoes! :)

    • Kristina Sloggett says

      thanks Tiff! and yes, they’re getting along very well, I imagine it will just get better the more they get to know each other… happy holidays to you!

    • Kristina Sloggett says

      warms MY heart too – there are so many and I want to adopt them all! she really is such a sweetie, just like our first. happy holidays!

    Happy Holiday Kris. OMG….Rosemary is ADORABLE!!!!!! I laughed out loud at the “sharing the blanket” picture. Rosemary looks like she’s almost “smiling” and Basil has the “REALLY? I have to share the blanket??? REALLLLY?” look on his face. So fun. I’m sure they’re fast friends. Best to you and the whole family, I’m looking forward to more of your recipes and posts well into 2013.

    • Kristina Sloggett says

      THANK YOU!! isn’t she sweet? (well, right now she is barking at a squirrel in the back yard…) 😉

      happy new year to you, my friend! thank you for your fun conversations this year – looking forward to more of those next year as well!

    I have been loving the pictures on FB of these two cuties! Doggy pics get me every time :) When we rescued our dog they thought she was black lab – basset, but we actually think lab – dachsund now
