Total Basset Case: Fridays with Floyd : A Day in the Life

Fridays with Floyd : A Day in the Life

Floyd really lives for Saturdays.
Like, reallllly loves them.

I thought it would be interesting to document his day, hour by hour.
Turns out a lot of these hours end up looking the same.

This was past Saturday and I had skipped running group because of the snow and ended up painting all day.
And if you are going to be home all day, Floyd thinks you should give him undivided attention.  He was not happy with me for not petting him for 12 hours straight.

8am
 Breakfast time.  If Floyd doesn't eat the moment his droopy eyes open then he will most certainly die.  Or at least that's how he carries on until he is snout deep in that bowl.

9am
Post breakfast bone time.  See also, trying to keep him occupied and those chunky paws out of the paint.

10am
Ol snowy paws

11pm
 This is where you may begin to see a theme

12pm
Mid day neighborhood watchin'

1pm
 Mmmhmm

2pm
 Switchin up his location

3pm
My lunch was not full of enough bacon or chicken for Floyd and incredibly boring to him.

4pm
Annnnd back down.

5pm
Annnnnd.

6pm
Oh! Papa's home!!
(I promise we fed him dinner and I even had a video to show you but blogger doesn't like me at the moment.)

7pm
 My personal stylist while getting ready for the night.

8pm-10pm
Mama and Papa were out to dinner.
Just picture Floyd snoozing in his house.

11pm
Little late night snacking before bed.

And wouldn't you love Saturdays even more if they looked like this?

I'm not sure if Steph and Meg were looking for doggie hour by hour days for their link up, but we will be over there hanging out with them! 

*If anyone is being interested in being a part of Floyd's Friends in the next upcoming weeks, shoot us an email!

LOVE Floyd! He reminds me of Fred in his more youthful days! Saturdays look like a blast around your house!

This the best idea! I might have to do a day in the life of Baxter. I suspect that it will look very similar to Mr. Floyd, though more master closet snoozing (the warmest room in our house). Yay for all of my clothes smelling like hound!

Floyd's 2 p.m. activity was my favorite. What a life! I'm jelly ;)

hahaha! henry's saturdays are VERY similar - just add a little more begging to go out in the snow.

Emily said...

What a cutie! Happy Friday!

Sarah Tucker said...

This is too funny! Looks about like Wrigley and Bailey's day...eat sleep eat sleep...

Lisa @ Two Martinis said...

Ozzie's day looks VERY similar to Floyd's day. He even loves to sit on the same part of the couch (the back, of course). Except he doesn't get out of bed until 10am. Life is hard!

Also, what are you painting?! Walls or canvas?!

Sometimes I think it would be awesome to be a pet. You just hang out all day!

Kait said...

Floyd, you are my favorite! Now, come visit Aunt Kait in Hawaii so I can smoosh your face and play with your ears.

Brianne Bracco said...

The life! He has it made ;)

Stephanie Delmonico said...

That is exactly how my pups lay on the couch!! Floyd is amazing :)

Anne said...

Love it - they act like their lives are so rough not getting played with every second, but really all they want to do is snooze. Love all the shots of him on the couch too.
