Arrival Story: I saw Floyd's breeder on Animal Planets "That's My Baby". I fell in love with her Bassets temperment and type. I contacted her, we met, and I waited for her next litter. I told her I was looking for pet quality. Who me in the show ring??? After Floyd was born she convinced me to try showing him. The rest as they say is history....
Bio: Floyd lived with 2 other Basset Hounds who recently left us for the Rainbow bridge, 14 year old Virgil and 12 year old Millie. We are currently looking for a new companion for him and hopefully within the next few months will have a new Basset Hound to keep him company. Because I want another show dog, we are taking our time until we find just the right one to join our family.
Update: While still waiting for the perfect Basset girl to be born, we aquired China Moon, a bloodhound puppy. She is grwoing like a weed and has the entire family wrapped around her paws including Pretty Boy Floyd. They play non-stop. Please visit her page and say hi!
Forums Motto: My fans call me Mr. Delicious!
Interesting Fact: Floyd qualified for the January 2006 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship dog show by finishing the awards year ranked in the top 25 of his breed (always owner/handled).

"I'd like to thank all of those that poked my pictures five paws. Now please go back and poke me with a Best in Show vote. If elected I will (try) to make sure that there is a Frosty Paw in every dog bowl"
...leaves podium, shakes paws and licks babies. But can't get out the door because his head has swollen to big.....
Francis Rocks and I made it into the Dogster Dog blog today. Seems Francis told them about how I gave him my dog stroller that I won in the "World's Coolest Dog and Cat" contest. I am to big for the stroller but Francis fits. Then, shortly after the stroller arrived, Francis injured his shoulder and had to lay off it for awhile. Abra Cadabra, the stroller becomes a wheelchair and Francis gets to recuperate while still being able to be out and about. Glad to help little buddy.
Well I'm not really a snobby dog. But I am a Slobb(er)y dog. But mom went ahead and entered me in the Snobby Dog photo contest. Please go to the below link and take a gander at my photo entry. If so inclined please vote for me. I am about half way down under the title "King Barkus" (the titles are alphabetical). I'm in my Mardi Gras finery.
