Valentine’s Day ❤️

I look so innocent and sweet mom…how can you stay mad at me for pooping on the floor?

Valentine’s Day is here again, so of course we are forced to take these silly photos because mom likes it and thinks we look adorable. Of course we are adorable, how do you think we get away with so much?

Seriously mom? Every holiday…and no you are not getting your blanket back.

Hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day filled with love and extra treats! ❤️

Winter basset print

The elusive winter Basset paw print

So in the last week we have acquired at least two feet of snow that we didn’t have before. I was able to capture a print from the elusive winter basset who normally hibernates during this type of weather. Hopefully I can get a glimpse of it when it emerges again! Stay warm everyone!

New guy in town..

Oliver Lee

So, a few weeks ago this new little guy showed up at my house! I was not very impressed with the decision to bring him here but I was overruled. ( followed by comments like you’ll get used to him)

I’m not moving…

The little runt has taken up position directly in front of the food service area and refuses to move until fed. This also displeases me since this is actually my food service area! ( his is in the dining room!) However it has worked to my advantage occasionally by scoring us extra treats, mom is a sucker for two sad faces pups.

I’m just gonna nap here..

Whatever the case may be , I am told he is remaining permanently and I should try to be a good big sister. I have recently allowed him to play with me for a few brief moments, but I remain firm that he will not join me in my sleepy chair…that is off limits…no negotiation.

He’s not touching my chair.

Dog days of summer..

It’s too hot to move mom..

So this is how I have been spending most of my summer in between torrential rainstorms with a few hailstorms mixed in. When it’s not raining it’s just too hot for a pup to get motivated.

My lounger for my back yard napping 😴

I do however venture occasionally from my front porch lounger to my back porch lounger just to mix things up a little. Hope everyone is having a good summer and staying safe out there!

A note to winter…

Dear Winter,

I was sort of ok with you around Christmas time so that the big guy in red could deliver my presents, however I think you may be overstaying your welcome. While you do make everything look pretty it’s hard for those of us with short leg issues to maneuver in you while taking care of business if you know what I mean… please return the sun to us and be on your way. I sort of look forward to seeing you next winter. Sincerely, Miss Lilly
