Basset Sleeping 101

So this weekend started out as another rainy, stormy one so the girls spent most of their time inside catching up on their sleep. Apparently they need at least 10 hours a night plus several daytime naps in order to stay happy & perky. Now Miss Molly is a straight floor sleeper, doesn’t like furniture or beds to lay on and prefers a nice draft to keep her cool, Miss Lilly is all about comfort and warmth, occasionally they will end up sleeping in sync.

Now this is a rare occurrence I’ve only captured on film a few times. I try not to disturb them when they are this in tune for fear of messing it up! Miss Lilly is my favorite sleeping subject though because she has so many different styles and positions but always manages to sleep through them all!!

Next is the contortionist position, good for the back..

Then we have the “Lilly ball” learned from our twitter friend Gracie  Beagle…

Last we have the cocoon for maximum warmth and less disturbances..

So these are just a few of my favorite Basset hound sleeping positions. Do your pets have any strange sleeping habits or positions they like?


Selfie Practice

So this weekend we went from 70 degrees and sunny, to rain and 50 degrees and then to sleet,snow, hail and 32 degrees, not a good weekend for outdoor fun! So I decided the girls should get a little practice on taking selfies, and being that they don’t have thumbs I had to help them out a little bit…

How’s this doesn’t make my nose look big does it?

OK, this is my selfie, can I go back to sleep now?

Miss Lilly got adventurous and took one in the car on the way to pick up dinner…

Dad you need better aim, I think you cut off part of my nose!!

So that was our exciting weekend, hope you had a good one!!
