Miley and Howie got to see their cousin Louie this weekend over Thanksgiving.

He’s a little bit bigger since the last time they saw him.

But try as he might, Louie still can’t keep up with this rambunctious duo.

He just howls to keep them in line.

Wait for me!

Doh. Where did they go?

He will hightail it to the nearest human willing to give a belly rub, though.

Louie got lots of belly rubs this weekend. And scratches behind the ears.

Did somebody say belly rub?

This face is kinda hard to resist.

Those cashmere ears. That lagging tongue.

But bassets don’t have a lock on those crazy, mid-run faces.

    I LOVE all your pictures of your adorable Louie! My children thought it was so neat that your Bassett Hound looks a lot like ours AND has the same name! Our Louie has the same markings as yours; but where yours is tan, ours is darker brown.

    Loved the pictures. Question how do you get the picture to animate like that. We are building a house and I have taken a picture either weekly or when major things happen at the site from the same place. I would love to know how to put them in action like that. Help. I am blogging stupid but would love to know more.

    Those pictures turned out great! I love the last one! As a baby sitter of a few Boston’s I had to laugh out loud at the thought of poor Louie trying to run and keep up… Boston’s can really fly when they get excited or hyped up. People picture the stubby bulldog Boston’s from TV, but that’s really not the case. Many of them are very lean and active. I don’t think poor Louie stood a chance! I know my poor little Shih Tzu couldn’t keep up with those long legs!

    cousins are always fun. We had nine puppies born thanksgiving night…..
    thinking of free christmas presents to their child like cousins….

    These pictures just put a big “o” smile on my face. Made my ho-hum day so much brighter. I love that last one most although they are all very cute.

    Oh my goodness, I just love Louie to bits! He is my dream dog – sure my Buddy is a one-in-a-million good boy but Louie… oh he just melts me like an ice cream on an August night.

    I really really like your blog. All the great food pictures. But then comes an pause from all that sugar and it’s doggies!! I LOVE the doggie pictures just as much. Thanks for sharing them with me. Renea.

    Louie is so adorable. What a fantastic series of photos – you’ve captured his personality and cute little puppy parts beautifully!

    they are so adorable! how do you get them to all sit there while you take a picture?! i have tried everything for my dogs and they have severe ADD :(

  11. Kindra Hill

    Such cute dogs! How did you do that animation! I know I’m not the only one asking. Do I see a tutorial coming in the future? I hope so :)

  12. Amy

    I know this is very random… but I have two things…
    1) I envy the fact that someone is wearing flip flops on Thanksgiving!
    2) I MUST know what kind of flip flops those are!! They are too cute! and i NEED a pair!

    Thanks ; )

    Very cute!! Our family is dog lovers. We call my son “The Dog Whisperer.” He can train a dog to do about anything!!

    Boston. Cuteness. Overload! It’s great that the dogs can play together. My girl Boston exhibits severely aggressive behavior with other dogs and most of the time I think she only tolerates her brother. I wish we could take her back to the dog park and let her play with other pups.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about Louie since your last post and wondered how he is doing. Thanks for the update and the pictures. The “3 Amigos” are sooo cute together!

    OMG how adorable. Great pictures! The mid-air face…priceless. However did you do the animation? I had 5 doggies together this Thanksgiving. It was great. All the doggy cousins….most not used to a big yard to run around in. I tried all weekend to get them together for a group shot…but no dice. Any tips?
