Are you a Daily Drooler?

September 30th, 2008 - 4:04 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Daily Drool Lovers: Wow, if you love or even like bassets I sure hope you belong to this list. I first got on the Internet in 1994 and I think I signed up for the Daily Drool when it started in 1996 or 1997? I think I might have been one of the original members, but I am not sure. Anyway, I digress……

For the first time since I joined the drool, I have a basset up for Hound of the Week! Guess who?

OK, you give up? It’s the Mayor. I did not even nominate him, his good friends Maureen and Slinky did much to my surprise and to his glory! I just went over and checked out the votes and he is winning by a slim margin! Have you voted yet? You have to be a member of the list to vote. Here is the link if you want to spend countless hours laughing and crying about our beloved breed.


Vote for Chaps, Vote for Chaps, Vote for Chaps. He is a bit down, since he did not make the cut for the Sr. Hounds Abound Calendar. He will get over it, and this would really help! LOL! This is his campaign photo.

More bribing folks to vote later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Chaps is winning Hooray!

    Chaps has more style, stature, presence, and he is so suave. Cary Grant couldn’t even measure up!

    Keep voting, and ask your friends to vote.

    I think Chaps would be a great president, but I wouldn’t wish him the task of dealing with all those idiots and fools in Washington.

    You are right, Maureen & Slinky! Chaps is head and shoulders above those fools (in a matter of speaking;) Found these quotes on dogs and politics:

    “Politics are not my concern…. They impressed me as a dog’s life without a dog’s decencies.” -Rudyard Kipling

    “My dog can bark like a Congressman, fetch like an aide, beg like a press secretary, and play dead like a receptionist when the phone rings.”–Gerold Solomon, US Congressman

    “You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.”–Harry S. Truman

    “I love a dog. He does nothing for political reasons.” –Will Rogers
