So this was my response when mom asked what I was barking at today….I mean doesn’t she know that those leaves could be hiding something dangerous? The woman has no idea how security works.
I finally told her she could just go back to cleaning and I would handle security on my own. I hope Santa paws is paying attention to what a good job I’m doing!
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Howl-o-ween!! Thanks to my twitter pal Miss Bella Basset for doing such great photos for me!! Aarrooooo! Stay safe!
Mom has got the Halloween bug already…the things I have to put up with to get a little shut eye!!
So it’s that time of year again when the great Basset Hound hibernation rituals begin, normally when the temperature dips anywhere below 50!!
One such ritual involves looking extra pathetic and whimpering ever so slightly until mom gives up her blanket to cover you up, normally done just after a chilly potty trip.
Ritual two occurs at bedtime and involves refusal to lay down until mom gets out your blankets, then you borrow underneath for maximum warmth during the night.
Both rituals are equally important and when well executed cements your spoiled rotten status.
Side note from mom: both rituals also increase normal basset stubbornness when getting up is necessary.
I’m glad these windows aren’t any higher …it would make security surveillance a lot harder!!
Colorful leaf that represent fall
First on my ear, then on my paw
Mom took a picture, she said it was sweet
Plus I think she likes to tickle my feet!
She gently removed it to keep in a book
My little leaf that my mom took.
Side note: this is me & mom’s first try at a little rhyme. We hope you like it!! No leaves were harmed while making this blog. 🍂
So I decided to take my hubro out to teach him how to play in a leaf pile correctly. He caught on pretty fast!
However he refused to roll in a few of the leaves that I thought had a very nice aroma, mom was happy about that!
All in all it was a fun time but this pup was totally expawsted afterwards…..mom managed to entice me inside with the promise of treats!!
Mom’s side note:( we removed the “stinky” leaves from the area so that no rolling would occur by accident)
This was my response to mum this morning when she asked if I was ready to go for a jog….#getseriousmom
Of course I want to place an order at the drive-thru…that’s the whole point of riding shotgun!!!
Mom: Come on Miss Lilly time to get up and go potty and have breakfast.
Miss Lilly: Get serious mom…
Mom: come on time to go potty…don’t you want a treat?
Me: good one mom, I’m not falling for the treat bribe…
Mom: fine lay there and be stubborn then.
Me: thanks, that was my plan!
Miss Lilly defines the term stubborn basset that’s for sure!! Side note: exactly five minutes after I gave up trying to get her to move she decided to saunter out to the kitchen just to make sure there were no treats laying around!
