Total Basset Case: Floyd's Friends: In Residence

Floyd's Friends: In Residence

 If the gravy from last weekend wasn't enough,
last night Floyd stole turkey and part of a cranberry dish off the counter last night and had himself his own little Thanksgiving feast.
(more on why I had those items next week)
I am going to document his reaching skills soon.
He is sneakily long and ninja like.

Floyd and I are so so very excited to welcome Anne and Ginger to today's Floyd's Friends.
Anne and I are friends IRL and Floyd and Ginger are soon to be as well!
Their mamas have been trying to get a play date for them organized.

Anne runs the adorable blog In Residence where she constantly has great book reviews, adorable outfits (her pin to present and essentials series are my favorite) and has the prettiest Pinterest boards I've ever seen. 
Take it away Anne and Ginger!

Hi, I’m Anne, and I blog about life, books, style, crafts, and travel at In Residence. I was so excited to meet Sarah as a fellow Cincinnati blogger, and while I haven’t yet met Floyd in person, I already love him from Sarah’s hilarious photos and stories - plus my family’s first dog was a beagle, so we always have a special place in our hearts for beagles and bassets. My dog Ginger would love to be real life friends with Floyd too, if he didn't find her crazy excitement about meeting new dogs too annoying. My husband and I adopted Ginger two years ago; she’s a sweet and funny pup and never fails to entertain us with her quirks or greet us with a three-foot leap into the air. We think she’s lucky to have us (she can be a little spoiled), but we’re quite lucky to have her too.
Since I work from home and am married to a resident who tends to spend long hours working at the hospital, Ginger and I spend much of our time together. And while she’s always very energetic when we’re out walking and meeting people, she’s pretty much the laziest officemate ever. A typical lazy day in the life of Ginger around our house goes something like this:
6:30 a.m. rejoice that momma* has returned from the forbidden land (aka the upstairs master bedroom)
7:00 a.m. eat breakfast
7:30 a.m. take a morning walk, pretty much rain or shine, followed by some fetch or sniffing in the back yard
8:30-11:45 a.m. start napping, and then do some more sleeping, plus a little dozing
12-1:00 p.m. lounge in the sun or play in the back yard (i.e. chase squirrels) while momma eats lunch
2:00 p.m. nap some more; or, if feeling especially frisky, pounce on a stuffed toy and chew off one of its appendages for a while
3:00-4:00 p.m. have an afternoon nap, maybe under momma’s chair
4:30 p.m. go for a little afternoon walk
5:30 p.m. eat dinner, maybe lick off someone else’s dinner plate (or chili pot) if she’s really lucky
6:30 (or 7:30 or 8:30 p.m. - his schedule is unpredictable) greet Peter’s arrival home from work like he’s been gone for weeks and roughhouse for a while
7:00-10:00 p.m. doze at momma’s feet while she reads, watches tv, or blogs
10:30 p.m. wait expectantly to be told it’s bedtime then trot happily off to bed (clearly it’s been an exhausting day and she’s beat)
Not a bad life for a pup, I’d say… Thanks, Sarah and Floyd, for hosting us today!  
*disclaimer: I never thought I’d be a person who refers to herself as her dog’s mom. As my own mom would say: never say never. 

Floyd told me that he would like to come hang out with you two everyday (and so would I).
Ginger has it made!
Thanks for visiting with us and we MUST get together soon!
Go visit Anne here

P.s It's the last day for the Glamour Me Jewels giveaway
  P.p.s The Holiday Blog Hop is still going up here!
Have a great weekend!!

Bassets and their crazy long bodies! I def know how he got those goodies! You think they are out of reach, but they are dang slinky dogs I swear! :) And great Post Anne! Ginger sounds a lot like my boxer lol!

Okay, I LOVED that Annie documented Ginger's day like that! And yes, Ginger is one lucky pup! =) I hope Floyd and Ginger's play date happens soon!

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said...

LOL at Floyd's Thanksgiving dinner! Love the pics of Ginger. Ahh, a dog's life....

I love Anne and her blog, and Ginger is adorable. Her day and my dog Ellie's days look pretty similar--in a lazy contest, I'm not sure who would win!

You're so sweet - thanks again for having us. And Ginger can't wait to hang out with Floyd :)

Allison said...

Aw I loved reading this! Ginger is a lucky pup indeed! :)

I remember Fred's days of doing stuff like that... once he ate a bakers dozen of chocolate donuts before we were able to get across the apartment to him. BUT I have spent the last 2 weeks in and out of the vet with him and his terrible arthritis - he can barely move - and I miss his spry, sneaky days. I am pretty sure I will find myself sneaking him turkey this year just to make up for his loss of jumping skills!

Jill @ Bluegrass Belle said...

Hilarious how you've documented Ginger's day...I'm pretty sure my dogs spend their time quite similarly! My husband works from home and he says they sleep most of the day, lol
