Meet this cutie, Kelvin, who’s 6-8 months old and is a lab/bassett mix.
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!).
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’?
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. 🙂
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.”
I can’t promise Kelvin will cool you down, but he is definitely one cool dog. Look at the size of his tongue!
“The bigger my tongue, the better I can cool myself off!” – Kelvin
Kelvin also gets along with other dogs, and absolutely loves to play.
He’s always ready for a good game of” whatever the occasion calls for.”
In this case, we were playing fetch.
Here we go! The next running back, anyone?
I think somewhere inside him is a retriever!
He started off fast…
…and slowed down to a walk. Good boy, Kelvin!
To sum up, Kelvin is highly trainable, adorable, social (with both people and dogs), and very playful.
