Our Thanksgiving!

November 30th, 2008 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo fellow hound and Thanksgiving lovers:

I just thought I would tell you guys about my Thanksgiving. As most of my readers know, my sister came up from Atlanta. Well, it was kind of last minute but she had a big treat for us! She hired a limo to take us to the nicest place in town for our big feast!

It was so much fun.

This is the Omni Neatherland Hilton Hotel, downtown Cincinnati.

It is a spectacular Art Deco jaw dropper. Man O Man, those were the days when they did it right. I have traveled all over the world and I have never seen a more beautiful hotel.

We ate way too much as I am sure all of you did. The kids were so upset that we left, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Before long we were back home.

Doing what we do best!

Loving on hounds!

More loving on hounds later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Waiting for teenagers to wake up!

November 29th, 2008 - 10:10 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and waiting for teenagers to wake up lovers! Come on, it’s almost day break, when does the fun continue! LOL

I have a pull out bed in my office for just these sort of occasions. Julian was sleeping upstairs in the guest room (aka couch) at Grandma and Grandpas. I told him he could come down when he woke up and get me up. I forgot to say wait until day break! It reminded me of Christmas when I was a kid. So, at 6:00ish (maybe a bit earlier) I hear Julian and Emma coming down the hallway. Each more excited than the other. Both asking, “What time do teenagers get up?” I thought to myself, it’s going to earlier than they want to……hehehe

I heard one of them talking on the phone until 1:00ish! Boy will he pay for that very soon! Julian and Emma agreed to wait a bit longer, Chaps was sacked out with one of the boys.


Then, without provocation and without explanation a cat walked by the window and Chaps made sure everyone was up, including the neighbors! YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Life is good when you have a queen sized mattress in your living room.

Reese Cup cereal anyone?

More hangin’ with the cousins later………Cat, Chaps and Emma

P.S. Chaps is at the other window making sure that cat knows who is boss!

Dogopoly rules the holiday!

November 28th, 2008 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hounds and have you every played Dogopoly Lovers?

This is a picture of Henry getting ready to play. He was bound and determined to win
“Basset Hound” on the board!

Well at my home we were lucky enough to have a theme for the holiday and it was Dogopoly!

I have highlighted the word which will link you to Amazon but google it yourself to find better deals. OMG! Dogopoly is the bomb! Julian arrived later Wednesday night and a Dogopoly tournament lasted until today, (Friday)

It was a cut throat came with everyone vying for the basset hound card!

The competition was tough, but Henry won on Thursday morning. All the boys were so cute because they know how much that means to me! I told them that I might place this card in a shadow box with lights and hang it as art work on the wall for the next time they come up!

That would be so cute! I love that idea! I also love Dogopoly! Slurp!

More games later…….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Hello Blog – please don’t be mad at me!

November 28th, 2008 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and missing my blog lovers! It may be a bit presumptuous of me to think anyone missed us, but we missed you! The whirlwind started on Wednesday afternoon when my sister from Atlanta arrived with her two teenage boys.

I picked them up from the airport and the rest is just a total blur!!!! You can see what I mean from the next picture…………..

Just look at Emma’s ears and tail. She went totally bonkers when Henry (on the left) and Ronald arrived at my home.

On the way in from the airport, Henry asked me if I thought that Emma and Chaps would remember them. I told him I did not know. It had been so long since they have been up to visit. It was about 2 years ago that they all came up as a family. (My sis comes up more frequently.)
Teenage boys have a full schedule you know, much to Emma and Chaps’s chagrin!

Well, Emma answered the question immediately. I have to tell you dear readers that she went absolutely, over the moon, crazy. She was screaming so loud, with her mouth wide open, that I thought that she would get lock jaw!

Then she calmed down from pure exhaustion.

Chaps went crazy, but no where near the exhibition that Emma portrayed. OMG! The humans were a bit teary eyed.

More fun later……….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Magic Carpet Ride!

November 26th, 2008 - 7:07 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Magic Carpet Ride Lovers! OMG I just love this song. Anyway, I was cleaning for the family visit yesterday, rushing and mumbling about how I need another day…..blah, blah, blah. So, I took the little carpet out of my bed room to vacuum it in the living room.

I laid it in the middle of the floor and went to get the sweeper and then I returned…..

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don’t know what we can see
Why don’t you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free

Close your eyes girl, look in side girl, let the sound take you away!

Another one of life’s little pleasures. It never fails, when you start mumbling and grumbling about never having enough time, a hound will slow you down even more and the pleasure will be well worth it. Emma is a dream come true!

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Hey, do you want to see the original Steppenwolf video? It is totally pawsome. Take a break and do some dancing before the big feast!

More magic carpet rides with hounds later…….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

More curious observations later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Vintage photo of Emma and I………

November 24th, 2008 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and vintage photo lovers: I thought that my readers might like to see an old photo of Emma and I. This was taken when she was about 9 months old. It is always fun to look back on pup photos. I hope you enjoy it! Slurp!

Oh they grow up so fast……….

More growing up later…….Cat, Chaps and Emma

How much is that puppy in the window?

November 24th, 2008 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo fellow hound and slap stick lovers. No one wants to buy a puppy in the window, but we all want to hear one sing about it! LOL!

More toooooo funny later……Cat, Chaps and Emma

This looks like fun!

November 24th, 2008 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Spaziergang Basset Hound Lovers! LOL! I only wish I knew what this means and I only wish I could have attended. I wonder how Chaps would have done? He is kind of grouchy? His Mom is of German heritage and I think this takes place in Germany???

More Spaziergang later……Cat, Chaps and Emma
