Like Father, Like Son!!! YES!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Father Like Son Lovers! OMG! The apple does not fall far from the tree! I love that statement. I wonder who came up with it? I guess I could ask google. Google knows it all. Well, no truer words were ever spoken in the case of measuring Chaps son’s ears! Here is Colby Chaps!

It all started off innocently enough.

“You want to do what? You woke me up to measure my ears?”




“OK, let’s get on with it. How long are Daddy’s ears? Hey look!”


“Mine are the exact same length! That is totally pawsome! I like this measuring thing! Let’s see how long I am in general!”


“Yes! I love showing off my belly!”

As a side note, I cannot believe how much our Colby Chaps looks like our Chaps. It is just phenomenal.

“OK – how about my snooter? Measure that Jourdan! Jourdan is my girl.”


“Ahhhhhhhhh, You know what they say, big snooters – big kisses! Slurp!”

More loving the family tree later……Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Oh, Yes…..loving the family tree! And it is so true how much Colby looks like his father. I know he is Red & White and Colby is Tri, however, the look on the face and those eyes……oh how he has his fathers eyes. Many times when I look at the photos you send of Chaps — I see Colby all the way. He really enjoyed the measuring time!

    Hi girls! I cannot thank you enough for the pictures! That was so much fun. Plus, Colby Chaps wearing his pink hat today on the home page! We sure wish you girls were closer to us. TX to KY is a long way in distance, but not in love!

    I love the pics too. Colby sure does look like his daddy. Very handsome boys. How is Emma doing?

    Too cute! This made me laugh. And yes, he looks a lot like Chaps. That second picture of him just looking at the camera just cracks me up.

    I love the first picture of total disbelief and annoyance that anyone would dare bother a hound of such royal lineage.

    He is just a beautiful as his papa.

    Unofficial measurement of Sophie’s ear (no pictures to prove it … she doesn’t give me long enough). I got 8.5 inches. She’s only a year old though, so I guess they may grow some more.

    Great pictures! Love the eyes. Did you sneak up on a nap for the belly measure?

    That is “pawsome” but I still think Colby has a lot to measure up to.
