Why I Am Wrapped Around His Large Paws

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why.  ~Author Unknown

My sofa slug. Or chair slug. I thought I lost him on Sunday. He is a large bit of loose skin and heft, but he is my 'little bundle of cuteness' and will ever remain so. I think he hung the moon. He is spoiled. He is going on the Invisible Fence collar. I don't want to go through that misery again. Monday, the 16th he turned two and I want him to live out his natural life with me, all 90 pounds of loose skin and heft.


  1. Oh I hate when an animal goes missing! Nothing's worse! Glad he's found & all is well.

  2. Oh, what a love bug! I want a dog in the worst way, a little Shih Tzu, now all I have to do is convince my husband...

  3. God, those ears look kissable!
    (I'd have them so chapped with all the kisses, that he'd need some ChapStick for his ears). Beware of Britwife, Howard!

  4. He IS super cute! And even tempered, I don't blame you for not wanting to lose him!

    I have never been around a basset hound before. See if you can get a photo next to something so people can see his size. He's not fat, just so compact!

    Howard suits him completely.

  5. He's my little squishy. Your hands disappear into the skin. He wouldn't let you smooch his ears, Bassets have problems with ear infections so they get cleaned often. He eyes anyone coming near his ears with great suspicion!

    Tell your husband a Shih Tzu hardly qualifies as a dog! He may not even notice it's around. : )

    If I could get Atlas to stick around when I have the camera, I could take a photo of the two of them.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
