Featured Dog: Kelvin

Kelvin

Meet this cutie, Kelvin, who’s 6-8 months old and is a lab/bassett mix.

Kelvin

He is heartbreakingly adorable as he looks, and he does have a big head-small paw thing going on (unlike an actual Bassett hound, which has a huge head-and-ears-and-paws!).

Kelvin

He also apparently understands benches, because the moment he saw one, he jumped, sat, and looked at me. Can you tell he already knows ‘sit’?

Kelvin

He also liked it when I sat next to him and rubbed his belly, and I think this bodes well for his chances of being a couch dog. 🙂

Kelvin

It was incredibly hot when we had our session, and his name brought a joke to mind:

“Did you hear what happened to the guy who got cooled down to absolute zero?

He’s 0K now.”

Kelvin

I can’t promise Kelvin will cool you down, but he is definitely one cool dog. Look at the size of his tongue!

Kelvin

“The bigger my tongue, the better I can cool myself off!” – Kelvin

Kelvin

Kelvin also gets along with other dogs, and absolutely loves to play.

Kelvin

He’s always ready for a good game of” whatever the occasion calls for.”

Kelvin

In this case, we were playing fetch.

Kelvin

Here we go! The next running back, anyone?

Kelvin

I think somewhere inside him is a retriever!

Kelvin

He started off fast…

Kelvin

…and slowed down to a walk. Good boy, Kelvin!

Kelvin

To sum up, Kelvin is highly trainable, adorable, social (with both people and dogs), and very playful.
