Dreaming of Spring and Emma’s next Birthday Picture!

February 22nd, 2011 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Dreaming of Spring Lovers! Every year Grandma and I take birthday pictures of Emma under the Cherry Tree that Grandpa planted in our front yard in honor of Emma’s Birthday. Oh howl I am looking forward to that photo shoot! Emma will be 7 on the 21st of April. I thought the residents might want to remember her 5th birthday photo shoot with us!

This is the most stunning birthday girl ever? Well….you can give a Mom that one! hehehe


Then this breathtaking shot!


I am just counting the days until our 7 year old photo shoot! Emma is such a stunning subject!

More itching for Spring later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Chaps Grandma uses her IPad to research the Thundershirt!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and trying to help Chaps with the upcoming thunderstorm season lovers…..Grandma is one of those!

Today, Grandma told me she found this YouTube about Thundershirt for Dogs who are freaked out about thunder storms.

We are willing to try anything! Have any residents tried the Thundershirt? A few years back a resident told us that putting a tight shirt on the Mayor may help his thunderstorm anxiety.


This person said that a tight shirt might make the Mayor feel more secure. I was wondering if this is the Thundershirt idea.


I tried this on the Mayor and it did not work. The t-shirt is so cute on himz! However, it only looked cute while he freaked out!

So, we are asking the residents if anyone has tried the actual Thundershirt! Here is their website….


With the thunder storm season approaching we are really looking to help the Mayor!

More loving that Grandma is on the Internet later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Everyone needs to treat themselves!

February 22nd, 2011 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and treating yourself lovers! Yes, everyone needs to treat themselves once in awhile! Don’t you agree? I know that Doc does!

Doc is Shelly Gordon’s rescued basset. Shelly and her husband run the largest store for basset items in the world. I don’t know if they say it quite that way, but it must be true!


OK, I have to say something about this video. If Emma was in this same circumstance she would have gone wild! I mean it. A few times she has been able to get into the food bag and the sight is unreal. Her head goes down and it weighs 25 times it’s normal weight. You cannot lift it. Her shoulders are hunching up and down like a machine. It is like she has not eaten in 24 days. It is scary howl much she loves food. She also likes getting one over on me and it is too cute.

More loving Doc and his dainty moves later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Facebook find of the day…..

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and, you think you are cold, lovers!

Check out these hounds in Russia!

I had to go to Google translate and add my own comment!

“Можете ли вы подобрать темп?”

Russian hounds2

“Забудьте об этом, я буду просто идти вокруг вас!”

Russian hounds

I crack myself up!

OK, the first comment I added says, “Can you please pick up the pace?” from the hound in the rear.

The second comment I added says, “Forget it, I will just go around you!” You can see the path that the middle hound, previously the hound in the back, took around the hound presently in the rear. Did I say REAR? LOL!

More from Mother Russia later….Love Cat, Chaps and Emma

P.S. anyone remember the song by the same name by Sisters of Mercy?

This would have been a good song on the ole Ipod to walk the hounds with. It is over 7 minutes long. I have it on Itunes.

Please let me make your day….hehehe

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Pickle Lovers! Howl can you make it through the day without seeing this tube?


This pretty Japanese writing means, Basset Hound! So it got me to wondering…..What does Pickle look like? So I went to Google Translate and found out for myself!


More enjoying a Japanese basset hound eating a pickle on this sleeting Sunday Morning…Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Spring in February! YES!

February 18th, 2011 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Spring in February Lovers! We were certainly one of those today. We have been looking forward to today for about 5 days now! All weather predictions came true and off we went for a Spring in February walk with the kids! It was a bit windy but 60! Look at those ears flying!


Chaps loved this area!


So, we over extended ourselves and pooped out at a lovely bench. OK, this means one thing to the kids…..A TREAT! Howl ever, like the dork I am, I left the treats in the car! Not to worry. Grandma went into the visitors center and bought some cheese crackers! Dog love her! See her in the background?


She gave each kid a cracker and it was the icing on the Spring Walk Cake!

More loving cheese crackers and Spring in February later…..Cat, Chaps and Emma

Grandma is an IPerson!

February 18th, 2011 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and IPerson Lovers! OMD! Who is not an IPad lover if you have one? I had no idea of the attachment those who have an IPad have. It was like listening to the best sales pitch ever. So, Chaps, Emma and I bought Grandma an IPad! We even got it engraved on the back. Check it out!


What a wonderful way to learn the internet and all it has to offer. She is already in love. I pad really love it too!

This is a picture she took of her 3 girls back a few years (decades) ago! LOL! Who would have ever thunk it would wind up on an IPad?

We call it, “The Pad”, after Lily. That is what we called our girl.

What a sweet, sweet, Pad…..I really loved her…..


More loving the Pads later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Blast from the past….

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Blast From the Past Lovers. I posted this picture way back when but I wanted to post it again. Chaps loves his Grandma so much….


The beauty of this picture deserves to be posted again. I have over 10,000 pictures in my Iphoto file, to be exact, 12,453! It is odd when I re-post a picture, but this is one rare and sweet pic!
