Total Basset Case: Fridays with Floyd: Personal Trainer

Fridays with Floyd: Personal Trainer

The Mister and I always talk about how funny it would be if Floyd wore sweatbands and/or was a personal trainer.
We turned this dream into his Halloween costume.
And I think it turned out quite well.




I picked up some kids basketball shorts and a t-shirt at the thrift store.
I then cut a hole in the butt of the shorts for his tail.
I kept asking the Mister if we should cut a hole for his wee wee in case he needed to go...
he said it wasn't necessary...

Then I took an old shirt and made Floyd a headband.
(With holes for his ears, of course.)
And finally I cut up an old wash cloth, added some elastic and made his sweatbands.

All in all I think it turned out pretty well.
And it was cheap!

Speaking of a trainer...
Floyd may need one soon.
He has been eating us out of house and home lately!
I'm pretty sure he is working on his winter coat.
We have definitely noticed a weight gain...haha.
 On the plus side, it is more skin to love on :)
