Total Basset Case: Fridays with Floyd: Currently...

Mar 15, 2013

Fridays with Floyd: Currently...

Floyd recently came to me and said, 'Mama, I think it's time I wrote a post. You are always writing about me and for me, I think it's time I do one on my own.' 
Well, alrighty then Floyd, take it away buddy.
*with Floyd's approval I corrected some of his spelling and grammar.
Hey ladddies, Floydman here!
During the day when Mama is at work I like to catch up on our blogs so I know what's going with all you fine lookin ladies. 
I've seen a couple of you do these 'Currently' posts and thought it was high time I did one of my own.

Currently I am...

Eating...well it's a long story. But the short version is, I eat Science Diet Sensitive Stomach because I have some belly issues. BUT I have a letter into the management and Grandma to get more steak on the menu.

Drinking...just sticking to water these days. Although I've been trying to steal a slurp or two of all these juices Mama and Papa have been making.  

Listening to...the other dogs in the neighborhood.  We have meetings and get togethers with each other during the day and because I am lead watch dog I generally get all the complaints too.  I tell ya, some of these older dogs are just really grouchy.  They keep complaining about some hound that HOWLS at 11pm every night.  I HAVE got to figure out who that is because it is just RUDE.

Looking forward to...my birthday (cough April 10th cough cough), summer road trips and warmer days so the parents will leave the back door open and I can lay on the porch but still keep an eye on them inside.

Watching...the neighborhood, duh.  And puppy bowl reruns, Ellen and sometimes ALF.

Loving...my mama and papa. I love them so much I lay all over them at night and sometimes on top of the covers to smoother them with my love.  I also help them work out and give them encouragement kisses while they are doing push ups to show them how much I love them. 

Not happy about...the gross weather.  It's been so wet and cold and my paws are having to be wiped all. the. time.  I don't mind that much when Papa wipes my paws but when Mama does it I throw a fit.  I really don't actually mind when she does it but I get a kick out of seeing her chase me around the kitchen.

Hoping...we get to meet Pierre this summer.  We have a lot of basset things to discuss.  He called me recently and we chatted for a long time but then I heard he got in trouble for the long distance call.  Uh oh.  Regardless, we are really due for a catch up.

Hope you all get lots of belly rubs this weekend!

Well, well, well Floyd I didn't know you were so busy during the day, could have fooled me.
I'll have to speak to the management about your steak request and see what I can do.

Floyd does seem pretty busy during the day. Maybe that is why bassets seem so sleepy when we are around. Ha! Hoping Floyd you get some steak soon! Happy Friday to you both!!

Lauren said...

Seriously, could these posts be any cuter? I feel like I'm having a true conversation with Floyd. Which is fitting, b/c I AM that *coughcrazycough* lady in the neighborhood who has long drawn out conversations with her dog :)

Helene said...

oh i switched everything over from google reader, so I'm already following you! and floyd and my husband have the same birthday- coincidence?!

Becca Moss said...

I love bloglovin' I think people will be very happy with the switcheroo.
Also, Floyd he's so handsome. I love that he just had his own post to shine.

Sarah Tucker said...

Floyd, hello, Pierre here. I hope that I do get to meet you this summer. I was thinking, we should start planning now. I bet if I stand on your back, we could reach just about any surface in the house. Think on that, let me know your thoughts. I'll keep brainstorming. And in the meantime, if you could share your contact person for getting more steak, I would appreciate it. Text soon, Pierre.

Betty said...

Thank you for the update Floyd! And I hope you figure out who that hound is that's keeping the neighborhood up at night! ;)

Kait said...

Anne said...

Gah, Floyd. Why are you so frickin' adorable. I'm thinking a chi-bassett breed session is LONG overdue.

P.S. I'm SOOOOO confused on the Bloglovin/Google Reader thing! :(

Help!

claire said...

Floyd is such a good boy for keeping the neighborhood in check! Christine, Barbara, and I hope he can figure out who that loud, late night hound is! Those are just the worst :)

Erin said...

Ooooh how I love Floyd. I really do hope a blate can be planned in the near future where dog bloggers will also be invited!!! :)

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

CMae said...
