Birds, Stuffing & Duncan

Here's the problem: whenever there is a puppy, kitty, friendly bird or anything that grows fur and will kind of engage with me - I can't pry myself away from it. I just can't. I love all doe-eyed, funny, spunky-looking, hairy beings who like to kiss me. I feel that it's crucial to point out that I'm talking about my taste in animal companions, not men- though I don't mind hair on either. Rawr

So when our Thanksgiving guests showed up with their loud, goofy, howling, floppy puppy- I pretty much spent the rest of my night laying on the floor, trying to get the dog to pay attention to me.
Meet Duncan. 5-months-old.
Cuter than cute.
And 12-year-old, increasingly grouchy Maddie acts the part of an amazing Hostess to our guests... haha
Wearing the same lipstick as Mr. Duncan.
Duncan wondering when he can walk 5 steps without me (or my Brother) picking him up against his will
Like Father, like Son: the men in the family prep the meats.
If you Diet on Thanksgiving, you are a sad, strange, little man.
But back to Duncan...
Gently telling him he's not allowed on the couch.
What a goofball.
And for Basset Hounds, I am thankful.

OMG Maddie!! That is too funny!!! Duncan is so so so cute. Bassets are the best - I have a special place in my heart for them because of The Pioneer Woman's blog :)

He is adorable!!! I would act the same way with him, rolling on the floor talking to him more than the humans. :) He makes me want another puppy!
