Total Basset Case: Fridays with Floyd: Scenes from the Tub

Fridays with Floyd: Scenes from the Tub

Floyd's favorite new sleeping spot in our house is my bathtub.
Homeboy spends more time in that tub than I do.
He hops right over the edge (a feat for those short legs and barrel chest) plops down and cools his belly.
These have all been taken within the last two weeks or so. New. Favorite. Spot.

After about 5 minutes he switches positions and groans because he gets legitimately mad he can't get comfortable.
Oh I'm sorry Floyd, can I get you one of those bath pillows and a blanket?
Maybe run you a bubble bath and light some candles?
NEWS FLASH: You are in a bath tub BUD.
And thanks for knocking over every last one of my products while you are in there.

Honestly I have no idea why he's chosen the tub for his new lounging grounds and it isn't that big of a deal.
Just add it to the list of 1,000 weird things he does every day. 
But lately if we can't find him, the tub is the first place we look (and then the neighbors house). 

But if you've never seen a basset hurl his body over the side of a bathtub, you are really missing out in life. 

Or maybe he is really just a fan of my bathroom redo.

Anyone have a pattern for a basset shaped shower cap?

Very funny and weird all at the same time ! Our lab spends time in the bathroom when the thunder begins! Maybe he just needs his personal space!

That Floyd is a character. Baxter loves to sleep on my maxi dresses in the closet. Drives me nuts!

Hahah this is awesome. My dog use to get in the bathtub when it stormed...even if we were showering, which is pretty contradictory. Maybe it's like a denning thing, but I am leaning towards him just really loving your bathroom redo :)

That is so adorable! My pups would NEVER do that. They associate the tub with all things bad!

Haha that is too cute and funny! Lately I discovered Jinx has been sleeping on the bathroom floor at night. I can't figure out why since he can choose from the couch, a recliner, and his dog bed to sleep on.

awww Floyd is so sweet looking. The tub floor must be nice and cool for him in the summer. He thinks you updated the bathroom just for him :-)

My dogs will hardly come near the tub, let alone lounge in to. Floyd is a trip!

Lyndsay said...

Floyd is so cute! My dog would rather forfeit her cookies than get in the bath tub.

he is so handsome! i bet he started going in there when he was scared then realized, oh shit its cool on my belly and sometimes i can lick water from places, cool.

Caitlin said...

I'm shocked! The only way we can get Fred into the tub is if we throw MULTIPLE Milkbones in (me) or if we pick his 70-pound self up and place him in it (Jesse). He HATES going anywhere near clean.

Ashley said...

I kinda slash really want to see a video of Mr. Floyd getting in to the tub. He loves to cool that belly! Ohh Floyd...I do love you.

Our Golden spends most of his day relaxing in the tub...I'm not sure why their obsession is! God forbid a storm rolls around, he's in there for good and isn't coming out!

Dara @ The Southern Thing said...

That is the funniest and cutest thing I have seen! You better get that man a pillow!

Betty said...

Love it! He looks very content being the king of the tub.

I really thought this was going to be about his hatred of baths. We get the, "I hate you both so much, and will not be making eye contact for the rest of the day for this horrible act you have done to me. You have removed my scents I was tracking, and I am displeased" look. PLEASE get a video of this. I just can't imagine his little legs making it over the tub! I'm guessing the cool tub feels good on his belly.

Kate Hall said...

Hahaha, I love this! What a great place for him to chill!

This is too funny! Wrigley and Bailey know the bathtub means bath time, which they are not a fan of, so they would probably have a heart attack before willingly hopping into the tub. They have instead decided to make their bed on our guest bed when we accidentally leave the door open!

That is so funny! Awww, Floyd!

Oh my goodness!! That is just hilarious!!!!! I love that he moans too because he cannot get comfortable!
