Meet Floyd...

He's a grumpy 12 year old mini dauschund.  Tipping the scales at 18 lb's, I think the "mini" part might be a stretch.  His weight fluctuates more than Oprah's.  
He doesn't like most kids, strangers, the vacuum, rain, cold, etc. etc. etc(list is so long).  

He's not especially cute. In fact, lets be honest pictures don't lie, with out the Christmas tree hat, he's on the ugly side.  

BUT... he has character and that goes a very long way!

We got Floyd over 12 years ago and he had it good.  REAL GOOD!!!  He slept in our bed, was toted around like one of Paris Hiltons dogs, fed organic food, and was walked all the time.

That all changed when kids came along(3 kids in 4 plus years).  He was demoted and he was not happy! In fact he was probably a good candidate for puppy prozac. 
BUT as the years have gone by he's forgiven us and lightened up, a bit.  He sleeps more, bites less and rarely leaves "surprises on the floor".  

He's getting pretty old and we're realizing his days are numbered. 

So, lately we've been spoiling him, All 5 of us.  He's been getting tons of treats and lots of love, and this year he may even find a thing or two in his stocking. 
Lucky dog, we love you!!!

This holiday remember.......

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, furry ones too!
