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!!
Miss Lilly had planned on getting up and getting some stuff done this weekend. When she found out it was only 1 degree out this morning she changed her mind.
I managed to get a few pictures recently of the ever elusive hibernating Basset…they only appear in very cold weather (anything below 35 degrees) and are rarely captured on film moving from their chair nest to their couch nest.
They always appear snuggled in a blanket like wrap that appears to cover everything but their face…
If you happen to be lucky enough to spot one do not, I repeat do not get in their migration path as massive stink eye and attitude may occur .
Here are a few of our favorite moments from 2017. Hope that you enjoyed them as much as we did. We wish all of our followers a very Happy New Year and thank you so much for joining us. Miss Lilly has made a few resolutions she would like to share: 1) try to take more naps 2) try to eat more treats 3) try to get mom to quit taking my picture all the time.
Note from mom: she has a good shot of doing all but #3!!
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!
So mom decided she wanted to take some holiday photos….I could barely contain my excitement. (I was smiling inside, mom finally gave up & I went back to napping)
Basset Hound skill #13 able to find the only available sunny spot within a mile radius for sunbaking!
Combines with basset skill #1, napping 😴…
So I have decided to start helping around the house ( can’t hurt to do a little extra with Christmas so close!). I am a natural at doing laundry so I figured I start there…
I was going to use this to clean the clothes I had collected ( I mean it has to be good it has a basset right on it!) but mom said I should stick with pre-cleaning and she would handle the soap part. She did say she was going to put in a good word with the big guy though for being so helpful….I’m sure I’ll make the nice list again this year!! 🎅🏻
The holiday season really wears Miss Lilly out…
She has made some progress …from the couch and her blanket den to the floor…next will be outside!!
Maybe I’m rushing her!!
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!!
