Total Basset Case: Fridays with Floyd: Like a Human

Fridays with Floyd: Like a Human

For being a dog, Floyd doesn't do a lot of 'dog' things.
  • He can't (and won't) play fetch
  • He can't catch a ball (he ducks his head if you toss one in his general direction- I'll post a video of this soon)
  • Walking him is a feat in itself. Heaven forbid, he gets on a scent...
He does have a lot of human qualities though
  • Sassy and dramatic antics
  • Suns himself on the porch
  • and my favorite, sleeps like a human 
 Mister took these pictures the other night.
He (Floyd {well Mister too}) just melts my heart.
And I'll just tell you, that fur on his neck under his ear is by far the softest thing in the entire world.
If I could somehow bottle it up and mail it to you all I would. 
And how appropriate that he is laying on the basset pillow.

And a funny Floyd story to end on...
The other night he demanded dinner
and so Mister gave him his food and told him to 'come here and eat'.
Floyd began walking over to his bowl and halfway there just laid down on the floor.
Like flat out, on the floor, on his side
on the way to eat.
He proceeded to lay there for a few minutes and then mustered the energy to get up and eat.

Have a great weekend, friends!

I love Fridays With Floyd! Chloe lays on pillows JUST like that. I feel like if they met it'd be instant puppy love!

Yayyy Floyd posts. Floys seems like the most cutest old man you ever did lay eyes on. His no care attitude should be bottled up and sent out to the world too.

Ahh! Cutest photos! I love him. My dog has no idea how to play fetch either, she watches the other dogs at the park chase the ball and then stares at me like "why would they do that?"

Floyd is TOO cute! My dog Jinx does the same thing...he'll lay his head on the pillow and go under the covers like a person. I'm thinking I have to get him a twin bed at some point, the dog bed won't cut it :)

If you could just package Floyd up & send him to VA that'd be great. Thanks. We'll love on him a little & return him in perfect condition. Promise. ;)

LOVE Floys stories...
sometimes we can forget our dogs are, actually, dogs... :o)
Donna (our cocker) also sleeps like a human... she needs a pillow and, when cold, why not a blanket.
