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) 

Morning rituals..

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!
