Total Basset Case: Four

Apr 10, 2013

Four

I can not even believe it but mister Floyd is FOUR today!!
FOUR!
Where is time going?!
He's 28 in dog years...which makes us the same age.
That's weird.
At least we are out of his teenage years.
He's still pretty sassy though.

I still remember going to the breeder to pick him out when he was about 4 weeks old. 
Mister and I traveled back a few weeks later and picked him up for good.
He was obviously love at first site.
And he pinned us for suckers at first site as well.
This is pretty good metaphor for our life with Floyd.
He lays and does what he wants, when he wants.
Granted his stubbornness is part of his charm, it is also not always his best trait.
He gets an 'A' for perseverance though.

It goes without saying that we love him to the moon and back.
Quirks, kinks and funny mannerisms and all.
He makes us laugh and smile on a daily basis.
We can not picture our life without without our chunky paw nugget.
He brings us so much continuous joy and happiness.
We also love that he brings such joy and happiness to those around us.
May it be our friends and family, people walking by on the street and, of course, you guys, we love that he makes people smile.
He is a happy, go lucky, friendly, never met a stranger guy and we love that about him.
He is ecstatic to see everyone at all moments but also loves a good snuggle session.
He is a lover by nature and has the sweetest demeanor.

And for a walk down memory lane, here are a few of my favorite puppy pictures of him.

 Wahhhh what happened to my little man?!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLOYD!!

Awww! What a sweet little guy! We don't have any puppy pics of Bax because he was a rescue, but I wish that we did. We got our first basset Jake when he was six weeks old--now THAT was an adventure! That dog was adorable, which worked in his favor as he demolished our house. ;D

Happy Birthday Floyd! Baxter hopes that you have a marvelous day!

I can't even handle the cuteness in these pics. I always go back and look at Fred's puppy pics. Fred is 4 this year too! We got him the day we came back from our honeymoon!

Jen said...

I hope he had a wonderful birthday! I love looking at all of his puppy pics. Such a cutie, although he is still a cutie even at 4! :)

Becca Moss said...

Happy Belated Birthday, Floyd!
Have y'all ever thought about adding a sister or brother pup into the mix? Floyd was such a cute puppy too! Clearly he has never outgrown his charm.
