I took this picture a month or so ago while she was snoozing! She snoozes most of the day. Her favorite place to rest is on the couch, where she is right now! Sometimes I find her resting on a pillow or curled up on a blanket. She normally doesn’t put her lower lip out like this, but for some reason on the day I took this picture, it was hanging out!
I love so many things about Bassets, especially Lucy and Bob!
Their ears are incredibly soft and abnormally large which makes me want to play with them every time I touch them!
Their fur is smooth and abnormally bulky which makes me want to pet them and grab their extra fur and roll it through my fingers which makes me want to play with their ears!
Their eyes are a deep shade of brown and abnormally droopy which makes me think they are always in need of a hug… which then makes me pet them and then I start playing with their ears.
Their legs are chubby and abnormally short which makes me think they are slow…. which then makes me think they are sad…which makes me want to pet them….which then makes me play with their ears!
Their jowls are saggy and abnormally drooly (not a word but it makes sense, right?) which makes me want to gently fick them to watch them vibrate…which then makes me want to pet them and then OF COURSE play with their ears.
I know you probably think I harass the heck out of the dogs…well…. I do! Probably about 50% of the day!
Believe me, I make up for that harassment with some delectable Dehydrated Lamb Lung as a tasty snack!
