The artist updates her video for us! Thank you

October 26th, 2007 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and rescue lovers: I just found this on YouTube. Comments? Well, the artist check in with and you can read her comments below. I did not add several comments because they were no longer relevant. I have e-mailed those people Elin’s good response.

This was my original comment:

I was kind of wondering why the artist did not contact Basset Hound Rescue in her area, instead of “hoping” the rescue would find the hound??? Strange.

Lucien the Love Machine – Barks for more pets!

October 26th, 2007 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Lucien Lovers: This is my very good hound friend Lucien. His Mommy is Melynda and loves helping out at the
House of Puddles.

Here is her video of her boy Lucien barking if you quit petting him. I suggested that she hire a full time petting person when she is at work. That should not cost too much? Come on Melynda! TeHeeeeeeee

Lucien, you are the love machine!

Bluegrass Basset Rescue picnic tomorrow!

October 26th, 2007 - 5:05 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and KY Hound Lovers: Tomorrow, October 27, 2007 is the Bluegrass Basset Hound Rescue Picnic. Here is the update, Susan, the director sent to me!

Just a reminder only one more day before the Bluegrass Basset Rescue Picnic to be held in Hopkinsville! Email me at if you need directions, etc.. Parking can be found in the Hopkinsville Middle School parking lot on Koffman St (google our address of 133 S. Sunset Circle and you can see Koffman on the map.) $5 gets you in for lunch of Kentucky homemade BBQ, slaw, potato salad, beans, chips, soda and dessert! Bassets get in free!! In case of rain, we’ll just move indoors! There’s nothing here a basset could harm 🙂 **If you have any of those fold-up camping chairs, please bring them along!** Seating outdoors will be at a premium!

Thanks to all who purchased raffle tickets! If you’d like some, check out the raffle packs on our website at (left side, bottom) and click PayPal to purchase! Deadline is Midnight Friday!!!

Susan Intessimone, Director

Also, in other BGBR news, they have a new guy named Griffon. This guy is just delightful!


Susan states, “Griffon, a big red and white whose owner surrendered him to the Humane Society because he didn’t have enough time for him (as if the folks at the HS had a lot to give him either??) Well, Griff thinks the Basset 500 is THE game to play–even if no one plays with him! He loves to run around the house 🙂 He is housebroken and is as big as our Murphy–a tall 60 pounder! The kids think he makes Murphy look small (and that’s funny because Otter made him look HUGE since Otter only weighed 33 lbs!) He was visited a few times by the Freckle Fairy. He’s a great dog and up for adoption, so grab this guy while you can! Come to the picnic and meet him!!!


Thanks Susan, he sure is a cutie. I would like to grab him alright, and give him a big kiss.

I will not be at the picnic. It is a five hour drive (maybe six knowing me) from my home. It is just too far this year, but I hope to make it next year! Thanks for all you do, Bluegrass, my hometown heros!

Dear Friends of New Leash on Life (CA)

October 25th, 2007 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound Lovers:

I got this e-mail last night from Devon. This organization is certainly pitching in and helping CA dogs that are in need a place to land until the owners can find their own shelter.

Here it is:

Dear Friends:

As you know, my passion is dogs! My wife and I started
New Leash On Life Animal Rescue, a nonprofit organization, 10 years ago and we have been rescuing and rehabilitating dogs and placing them into permanent homes with great success.

The fires that have engulfed Santa Clarita and the rest of California have prompted us to open the New Leash On Life E.R.A Center to small animal evacuees. Any person who has had to evacuate who has small animals are welcome to bring their pets to New Leash On Life where we will care for them (at no charge) until they are able to go back home.

If you have friends or family living in Santa Clarita, please let them know that we are available to help. They should call New Leash On Life at 661-255-0097 for more information.

How You Can Help:

Volunteers are needed at the E.R.A. Center to help care for the animals that are staying with us. If you have crates that we can borrow, please bring them to the E.R.A. Center located at 16742 Placerita Canyon Rd. Newhall, CA 91321. We would appreciate donations of Wellness dog food as well.

The extreme winds have reeked some havoc on our out door play yards and some kennels which will require some repair. Any monetary donations are much appreciated. To donate, call New Leash On Life or Click Here.

Thank you!
Bobby Dorafshar

Folks this is a great website for updated information if you live in an area affected by the Firestorm.

Devon, thanks for passing this along. I am sure it will be of great help to many!

bassethoundtown theater presents the AZ basset hound stars!

October 20th, 2007 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Arizona Basset Hound Rescue lovers:

Welcome to bassethoundtown’s theater presentation for the night. I have made a video of the hounds that are just as beautiful and bright as the painted desert of the Southwest. All of the hounds in this video are looking for the person who is looking for them. They cannot do it on their own, so the wonderful people of AZBHR step in. These fine folks have helped find forever homes for over 900 dogs since 1998. You deserve a round of applause and a chorus of howling.

Please go to their website. You may not be able to adopt a hound, but you can sure help one that is not adoptable.


This is Maggie Moo. Kip and Gus sponsor her.

Well, sit back and enjoy the show. Music by Rascal Flatts.
(musical selection inspired by Devon, many of these hounds are seniors!)
