I got to see Santa Paws last night! One of our crazy neighbors has a Griswald-ish holiday decorating scheme (he has 50,000 lights on and around his house), and on the weekends they have the real live Santa Paws there! So, we walked down and got my picture taken. He was cool, but there was a cute little poodle off to the right that was capturing my attention.

I am so tired... Daddy just grilled and I got me some steak. Full bellied woofer is a tired woofer.
This was this 'mornin'... So tired. I don't sleep well without the mamma in bed.
I was using my hedgehog as a pillow earlier today. Good thing I left some stuffing in that one.
Hurry home mamma! We miss you!!

I'm going to be a single parent woofer for most of the week. Dad has to go out of town twice and mom has to go out of town once. After today, I don't think we'll all be together until Saturday afternoon. Sad... but as long as I have the smooshy couch to lay on, I'll get by.

I did find out that I weigh 58.8 pounds... the vet person said that I am a very physically fit Basset Hound. With the exception of the vomiting and mystery bumps of course.
I'll keep you posted... nothing to worry about though.

Do you have any nicknames? Do I! I am affectionately refered to as Mac, Mackie, Little Woofer, LW (for Little Woofer), Mac the Dude, Mac a dude, Macmanus (when I am bad), Little Man, and of course, The Baron.
Who is your best friend? Hmmmm... tough one. I love all my woofer peeps. Daisy is the best. I also love Buttercup and the crazy pool woofers that visit from time to time.
Mama's boy or Daddy's boy? Mama. Dad is cool, but mama is all about the snuggling and sleeping.
Favorite food? Dad's grilled chicken, but I don't get it often. I actually don't eat a lot... the vet says it is good that I regulate my own weight. Sometimes I won't eat for a day, and then mom will hand feed me. Hahaha... sucker.
Favorite treat? Dingos! And these little peanut butter cookie things they give me to go into my room in the morning.
Arch nemesis? Rabbits. Actually, I don't mind them... I just want to lick them, I swear!
Favorite activities? Sleeping, cuddling, watching home shows with mom, watching golf with dad (I like watching the ball roll on the green...), walks with grandma, time with other woofers, sleeping (I really like to sleep), chasing rabbits, barking.
Favorite toy? I've destroyed most of my poofy toys, but I still like chewing on all of them. I have one we call "long woofer" because it is a big long stretch looking dog... he's fun to chew. I'll retrieve a tennis ball once or twice, but I get bored with that pretty easily.

I'll blog at y'all next week... woofs.

Here are some photos from the day.
I had a great time, but was so tired... I went to bed early and slept in.
Next woofer pool party is slated for Labor Day Weekend...
And we got other great news... Daisy is going to be around for the next month!

Truthfully, this is what Basset Play Day looks like... three Bassets laying down for a nice long nap on the nice cool tile floor.
I was so tired, I needed another nap!
That's my dad, getting in on the play day... Daisy has a very scratchable belly.

I mean the bad fighting. The fighting where woofers get hurt really bad, or worse. Who do you think you are? What makes you so insecure that you have to build your ego through woofer fights? Woofers are good people, and only act the way they did when they are forced to. No woofer should be forced to act that way. Woofers are full of love.
You have all the resources and money and kibble in the world... you could have been such a good woofer daddy, but instead, you are the worst. Even if you didn't do it yourself, you allowed it to happen. You are a bad man.
I hope you get what you really deserve, you terrible awful man.
- Mac aka Baron Von Woofer
p.s. You suck at quarterback too.

Buttercup, up close and personal.
Paige and Butter...
Me and Buttercup after a long night of running around and eating some treats. I did most of the running.

Anyway... I walked around the corner, and there he was... a medium sized rabbit. Normally, they dart right for the gate, as they have a little hole there that they get in and out of... but this rabbit was trying to test my nerves... he darted the other way... but I saw it coming and cut him off! Then he darted back around the pool and made his escape under the other gate... but not until after I gave the little fuzz ball a good chase.
One of these days rabbits... one of these days.

(quick question... is anyone else having trouble trying to insert a title in the 'title' box?)
Mom and dad are planning a woofer pool party! We had one last month, and it was big fun. I was exhausted. They have friends with woofers, and those crazy woofers ACTUALLY JUMP IN THE POOL! My little basset legs and big basset belly don't like the water, so I watch them go nuts. We also run around and get treats while the two-leggeds drink beer.
Here are photos from the last pool party!
This is Murphy... he's part fish. He liked the water more than he liked the land!
That's Sophie on the chair with her mom... As you can see, I was quite tired at this point, and I look like I am about to die. Sometimes I make the funniest woofer faces.
Our next woofer pool party is scheduled for the last week in July. I have no idea when that is, but I hope it is soon!

Look at how exhausted I am!

Remember how I scattered the rabbits the other night? Well, dad apparantly left the door open when we were outside, and one hopped right into our house! He's been living in our bedroom since Friday night!
Dad was able to corner the little rabbit in the bathroom and then release him back outside.
I am being called a "bad hound" or "bad scent dog" by some in the pack... but hey, my job is to find and track these little furry balls OUTSIDE. When I am inside, it is all about relaxing.

This was me ths afternoon. As you can see, I am much happier.
I don't like to go in the water, but I do like to cuddle up on the towels and lay by the pool.
I also walk around the pool... "patroling" while the mom and dad are in there. There is this big snakey looking thing that goes around eating the dirt off the bottom of the pool, and it freaks me out.
Mom and dad are going to some place called "New York" this week. I don't get to go. My grandma is going to watch me... I like it when she's over, because she's a sucker for giving me treats and back rubs.

Last night, dad took me out back to do some business. On the way back in, my nose led me to a bush that had some smaller baby rabbits in it. They squealed and ran away, and then dad yelled at me. He went looking for them this morning, and found one. This is a bush with some pretty flowers near our pool...
And this is what dad found hiding in the bush this morning.
Now I don't get to go out to the backyard/pool area today or tomorrow... stupid rabbits.

After a little while, this was boring... so I jumped on the leather couch. I am not supposed to go on the leather couch, but I got in a little nap before anyone noticed.
Once I was discovered, I had to get down... I camped out by the front door again, hoping for the rain to stop. Stupid rain.
