I am obsessed with my dog and anyone who knows me knows that I like my dog more than I like actual people. I own a bloodhound named Winston, not a typical dog that you own nor a typical name, but Winston is not a typical dog.

I got Winston when I was a sophomore in high school and I immediately fell in love, like most people do with their pets. This blog explains what it is like to live with Winston over the last 7 years and a lot of cute photos.

First, bloodhounds are stubborn and they always get what they want. Case in point, Winston always gets his spot on the couch if not the whole couch. As a puppy we tried to stay strong but when he looks at you with those floppy ears and drooping eyes it’s hard to say no.

untitledSecond, bloodhounds are huge, I think I underestimated his size when the second day we got him when I couldn’t even lift him anymore. He has a “king” sized dog bed and takes up 2 spots on the couch, Winston is now 7 years old and 145 pounds, (he has recently been put on a diet).

Third, bloodhounds are loyal. This dog has been by my side for the last 7 years and everyday is a new experience with him. He will never leave your side, always is protective,he is a big snuggler and always poses for a picture.

Yes my pet is one of my best friends but when you have a dog as cool as Winston that is all you need.
