“My first dog when I was 3 years old was a basset hound,” says Drummond. “And a Basset Hound was the first dog Ladd and I got as a couple. I’ve loved Basset Hounds all my life!

Does Ladd Drummond love dogs as much as The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond?
The Pioneer Woman was asked by a reader if Ladd Drummond is as big a fan of dogs as she is. The random country girl says Ladd likes dogs. However, he expresses his love for the puppies differently than she does.
“He loves her in a different way,” says Drummond in her magazine. “I sit on the floor or the sofa and cuddle with them, and there is no physical distance between us at all.”
Ladd, on the other hand, likes to have a bit of space when interacting with their fur children. “Ladd loves the dogs, but he doesn’t go on the floor and rummage around with them,” says Drummond. “He puts them in the back of his truck and takes them to the ranch!”
