Release the hounds!!! Westminster Dog Show Starts Now…

February 10th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Westminster Lovers.  The show starts right now on some obscure channel on my cable, (905).

I need a break from snow boarding which is getting a bit long in the tooth for me.

I big thank you to Monnie, bassethoundtown resident for alerting me that she spotted a very cute lace ear in the all breed Basset judging video over on the Westminster site. 

This hound is first up on the ramp during the all basset hound breed competition.  I am not sure who won this contest but I will soon find out as they RELEASE THE HOUNDS, in the hound group which is first up.


Wonder who this hound is?  Very cute indeed as they all were.

So tune in and watch the basset not place!  They rarely do which is a real shocker in my opinion.  (Surprise, surprise…)

More loving fancy pants hounds showing the world they are simply put…Adorable! Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB popping the rainbow corn;)

    Hannah was thrilled to see the Basset Hound was a red and white like Sophie. We would so love to see a Basset or Great Pyrenees win Best in Show this year. Not another terrier. I’ll even take a Mastiff as a winner (also has never won before), just for Romeo.

    Drat. That was a beautiful basset hound – but he came in 3rd. Our 2nd choice was the Blood Hound and he won, so that’s some solace.

    Yes, OM – tell Hannah we were thrilled as well. I woke up Daisy Lynn for a few seconds so she could see the third place winner. A great pyrenees would be so cool! Love the blood hound. I bet he is slobbering all over the place right now! hehehe

    Residents – did you catch this in the opening? That announcer with the big booming voice is a basset hound lover and breeder!

    Yes the blood hound is beautiful – he probably drooled all over the toy group as he left the arena. :)

    I will always have a special place in my heart for Westminster, because it led you to me. (Thanks Stump).

    Hug Mayor Daisy Lynn for us. Love you all.

    I did catch that about the announcer and basset hounds! All these years and I never recall hearing that before.

    Doesn’t make any sense at all that bassets never win anything. I think they are a very beautiful dog. Daisy Lynn is much more beautiful than this dog though!

    Ahhhhhhhh thanks so much CJOHR – that is so sweet. Daisy Lynn would have jumped on the judge and tried to sit up. That is her new thing now. Of course Grandma and I won’t let her do it on her own!

    OM – you are so right. That was years ago and I certainly remember googling Sussex Spaniels and finding you and the icing was that you had a blog and a basset to boot! That Stump was a real angel for sure…

    LOL – that blood hound probably slimmed a few toys for sure!

    He lives in New Mexico with his wife who is a hound judge. What a voice that guy has.

    I am glad Eenie Meenie Miney Moe got third place – he looks so much like my Bumper when he was young. I was hoping for a best of breed but the bloodhound is beautiful. Bumper still is best of show in my life – Abby is tied with him!
