Track Santa!

December 24th, 2006 - 8:08 am KY Time

Merry Christmas Eve hound lovers! We here at will be tracking Santa all day. In KY it is 7:41 and Santa has just landed in Japan. I bet my hound friends Blair, Fuh and Yuh are so excited. You can go to the link I provided and see for yourself where he is at any time. Make sure you select the correct medial player or Quicktime so you can view Santa’s current video. You can also track him on a map. Have fun! My Blog will be updated all day long. So, check back for more sightings. Remember, Santa e-mails Chaps from his blackberry. They are dear friends.

Welcome home Discovery! You rock

December 22nd, 2006 - 6:06 pm KY Time

The space shuttle discovery arrives home safely at 5:32 pm in the light of a beautiful FL sunset. 13 days orbiting the earth, Discovery is home in time for the holidays! The shuttle was landed perfectly by Commander Mark Polansky.


Chaps just got an e-mail from Santa, and he and his family saw the Discovery pass over the Northern Hemisphere. He said it was a beautiful site to see. More Later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Chaps interviews Santa prior to his take off!!!

December 22nd, 2006 - 9:09 am KY Time


I am passing along a special interview granted to Chaps, the Mayor of with Santa. Chaps and Julian met up with Santa during one of Santa’s mall tours.

CHAPS: Santa, I understand that you and Mrs. Claus have a new dog. Can you tell us about it?

SANTA: Yes, dear boy. Mrs. Claus and I have hundreds of dogs. This newest one looks like you. She is a basset hound. Mrs. Claus found your website and she really likes it. You are a great Mayor!

CHAPS: Thank you, I do my best. What did you name your new hound?

SANTA: We are still coming up with a name. What do you think?

JULIAN: How about Belle?

(Santa summons an elf and tells them to ask Mrs. Claus)

SANTA: I like that name little boy. Have you been good this year?

JULIAN: Yes, yes! You can even ask my Mom and Dad.

SANTA: I don’t have to. I know everything!!! You have been good!

CHAPS: Santa, Emma wants to know if she can help, maybe ride in your sleigh?

SANTA: (shakes his head no) My dear boy, Emma makes Rudolph nervous. She is alway jumping and barking. We have to be silent so we do not wake the children. Maybe next year.

CHAPS: Well, the line to see you is getting long. Can I e-mail you later to keep everyone at up to date?

SANTA: HO, HO, HO, of course! (Santa, pats Chaps on the head, and give Julian a candy cane)

SANTA: Hold on Chaps and Julian, it’s Mrs. Claus on my cell phone. “Yes Dear?” OK, I will let them know. “Belle it is”, Thanks Julian

These pictures are wonderful! Thanks Doris

My friend Doris sent these pictures of Henry and Jum Dog. Jum Dog (also Jum Jr.) was half basset and half beagle. So therefore he was a bagel! That is what we fondly refer to this mix as. Jum dog got his name from Henry’s nickname of Jum. I just think it is adorable that the child and hound were called the same name. I just love that. More Later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Emma vs Tara – You decide who should be Miss U.S.A!

December 20th, 2006 - 4:04 pm KY Time



The Donald, gives KY girl, Tara, second chance to keep her Miss U.S.A. crown. Emma thinks that the title should go to the true KY glamour girl, HER!!!! The Donald believes in second chances, but what about true beauty??? What is your opinion? Bassethoundtown thinks Emma was robbed!

Dear Fellow hound lovers: This is the next holiday card for your viewing pleasure. The only fault I can find, is that the hounds are not bassets!!! However, Chudleigh is very cute! I hope you enjoy it. Have a great weekend and be safe in our town! More Later….Cat, Chaps and Emma
