Up close

Being that the weather has kept us inside more than usual someone has taken the opportunity to try and score some extra sharsies. First the nose bump, then the sad face followed by a yawn of exertion.

These are soon followed by the lip lick of victory and an extreme snoot close-up hopefully leading to further sharsies.

Definitely makes meal and snack times more entertaining!! Plus who could resist that persistent cute face!!

Christmas countdown..🎅🏻

So according to my calendar there are only 3 more sleeps until the big guy comes to visit. I have decided to keep a vigilant watch by the tree until then. ( excluding small breaks for naps, potty time, snacks, meals and naps, wait did I say that one already…)

Mom says if I behave myself until then I may end up on the nice list after all. ( she is still upset about a recent cookie borrowing incident, she did let it sit on the end table for longer than 2 minutes ) I am going to ask him to replace said cookie when I see him, I may possibly ask for two just in case. 😉

We hope all of our pals near and far have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy time with their family, furry and human!

Ready for the Holidays 🌲🎅🏻❄️

So Miss Lilly has been busy getting ready for the Holiday season…she wanted to look her best while still staying warm and cozy while out in the snow. Luckily we know an awesome little business called Howlin’ Hounds that was able to deliver with a nice fleece snood!! They offer lots of great products and you can find them on Instagram @howlin.hounds, Twitter @howlinhounds or at gotsnoods.com.

They also sent this lovely collar flower for when she wants to look festive at holiday gatherings!! Check them out if you get a chance!!

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! 

Basset hibernation

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. 

My little leaf…🍁

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. 🍂

Fall fun 🍂🍁

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)
