Floyd's Friends: Helene In Between

Why hello FRIDAY!
And the Friday before Christmas at that!
We made it!

Floyd, Mister and I would like to say a very special Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our TBC friends!
We love you all so much and hope you have a fabulous holiday with friends and family!
We will be taking a few days off next week but will be back after Christmas!

Now on to Floyd's Friends!
Please welcome Helene and her adorable man Hugo!

Hi Total Basset Case Readers!
I'm Helene and the dog is Hugo. 
Hugo is an interesting little fellow and by that I mean he is 
Hugo is a 2 and half year old Doberman that came into our lives only a year ago.
It's crazy that he has only been around a year. It feels like our dog-child has always been here.
I love the dog, more than most humans, but my husband's obsession is borderline crazy.
Let me explain.
Is this portrait not ridiculous?! The trainer that we work with took this of him and sent it to us.
Hugo looks terrifying, and he can be. 
He does schutzhund training, which is a form of obedience and...he can bite people on command.
I know he looks terrifying but he wouldn't hurt a fly. He is the sweetest dog I have ever seen. And he is actually less guard dog-ish than we wanted. 
Here he is attacking a "bad guy" (with my husband holding the leash)
He really enjoys eating raw chicken (this is what we feed him), getting back scratches, resting his head on every place imaginable, 
getting into trouble (like eating casserole dishes the day we are having a party) and dressing up, especially as a lobster.
I had no idea I would have a dog like this, I grew up with prissy English Springer Spaniels, but the husband got what he wanted, and I couldn't be happier. Especially since I fell 20 feet rock climbing. I was worried he would jump all over me, but he has been so calm and sweet. 
I have always been a dog lover, but after having Hugo I am Doberman lover.
Hugo graces my blog, Helene in Between all the time, so stop by sometime!
Oh my goodness, I just want to snuggle up with Hugo, he seems like such a sweetie!

Please go visit Helene and Hugo and tell them hi!!
And I highly encourage you to check out her post from yesterday, hilarious.

Floyd's Friends will continue into the new year, but in a slightly different format.
If you and your pooch want to take part in Floyd's Friends just shoot me an email at totalbassetcase{at}gmail{dot}com and we will get you the details and put you on the schedule!

I'm pretty sure the reason Hugo was resting on the computer was because he was wanting his mommy to quit blogging and play with him. (I know this because I get it all the timeA from MB!) Merry Christmas Floyd, Sarah and Mister! We hope y'all have a wonderful celebration next week. And... I'm think little Marbelle would like to be featured one day! =)
