So it’s September and still sticky hot and humid….where is my leisurely cool but not too cold napping weather?
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.
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)
So last week mom decided it was time to get our family photos done for the year. As usual nobody wanted to cooperate with this endeavor. However we did manage to get a few good photos during the process so we thought we would share some with you. Warning: the cuteness level of some of these photos is rather high so be prepared!!
Miss Lilly strutting her stuff…
Miss Lilly photo bombing dad & brother..you can tell she is thrilled about sharing the camera with her little bro!!
Miss Molly decided to roll in the carefully placed leaf piles instead of being in the pictures…brother was able to persuade her to do one with him. (we think he had treats in his pocket)
Miss Lilly prancing away after yet another successful family photo shoot!!
Hope you enjoyed these as much as we did!!
So yesterday was Halloween and mum made us get into costumes again this year. We had to take our people pup out for trick or treating so mum decided we should dress with a theme.(lucky us) since little bro really likes the Lion Guard from Disney she decided he should be Kion, the lion, we were other animals from the pride lands a leopard and a zebra. ( since big sis is so big mum had to make her costume)
Here we are doing a quick perimeter check before heading out…looking good!
Once we finished our check we picked up little bro and headed out…we kept a close eye on him in case someone might panic at the sight of all these animals, plus he was carrying the treat bucket!!
We received lots of compliments on how good we looked and also filled our own treat bag!!
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween too!
I don’t want to get up and go potty mom…it’s cold & rainy out. I’ll just stay in my sleepy chair until it’s done!
