Vintage Lily Picture……….Ahhhhhhhhhhh

February 23rd, 2009 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Vintage Lily Picture Lovers:

I was going through a stack of Lily pictures over the weekend. I had them set aside to scan into my system. I decided to just take a picture of the picture. It is much quicker and the result turned out really well. This is Lily about 2 months after I found her wandering the streets of Newport, KY. I was setting up a photo shoot for my Christmas card. I had Chloe sitting in front of the chair, but I have not run across that picture yet.


Wow, this was back in 1995. What a good girl. The end result turned out great.

Emma greets the pupperatzzi – Live from the red carpet

February 22nd, 2009 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Pupperatzzi lovers: Ever the dignified lady, Emma greets the clamoring pupperatzzi with grace. A shot of her in the haute couture design of Dogatella Versachien is worth about 2 million dollars world wide.


Emma is looking forward to the after party and enjoying the famous cuisine of Woof Gang Puck.

Emma is LOVELY TO LOOK AT on Oscar night!

February 22nd, 2009 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Hollywood Lovers: LOL!

Back in 2007 my Mom and I filmed this YouTube video. We had so much fun. Of course today is the day to re-show it.

I have no idea about the 2009 Oscars. I have not seen any of the movies up for an award. I might watch the pre-show and see what the ladies are wearing. I bet none look as good as Emma!

More Emma looking beautiful later…..Cat, Chaps and Emma

Sandy Gaston sends treats and hope!

February 21st, 2009 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and having hope lovers: We have a dear friend named Sandy Gaston of She has been so wonderful helping me guide Emma towards heath. I cannot tell you how special her words and guidance have been. Emma suffers from severe allergies to food and almost everything else. I think she is even allergic to Chaps’s slobber!!!

I will update this blog much more later with her wisdom. I also want to interview her on my talk show.

She is such a smart gal. I am so fortunate to have her in my life. So, stay tuned and we can all learn a lot from her.

Emma is healing day by day with her guidance.

But for now………TOYSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks Auntie Sandie! This toy says Princess

But both kids went after the Walrus!


Now Emma!


It never fails, both kids want the same toy!

We love you Sandy!

More love later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

Chaps need help with his contest…

February 21st, 2009 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Chaps Lovers: OK I got out my glasses and magnifying glass and read the rule for the above mentioned photo contest, (at the top of the blog). Come to find out that one hound a week wins 250.00 for having the most votes. If that hound wins the contest, that 250.00 is deducted from the 1000.00. OK that is not the part that bugs me. That is totally fair.

What is not fair (in a Helicopter Mom’s opinion) is that Chaps has not won a single week of votes. WHAT????? How can that be?

A hound this cute and handsome? Not winning one single week’s worth of votes????

Here are some other pictures from the photo shoot just to confirm my hoovering ways.


Chaps wants to win 1000 for the elders – Heck, he is an elder himself!


He is not stuck up one bit but he wants his Mom to have bragging rights with himz being on the cover of the Yellow Pages.


You saw my left profile, now look at my right. It might make you vote more. I am cute from any angle! Slurp!


Well, never to be left off of the heliopad, our Emmers! Next year is her turn!

Thanks for voting friends. Please pass along the link at the top of this blog. It will remain until the end of Feb.

More voting later…..Love Cat (in her helicopter), Chaps and Emma

I am going to add these to the HOP boutique after I have them appraised and sized. There is no way these 10K gold cuties are getting scrapped.

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Cream Cheese Lovers: Today I had a cream cheese sandwich on rye for lunch. This is what I saw the entire time I was eating it.


This is the actual picture of Chaps watching me eat my lunch. Emma was off to the side. I guess you know who got the last bites! Oh how we love cream cheese………

Hey! The Gold Rush is alive and well!

February 21st, 2009 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Gold Rush Lovers: Yesterday I was at the post office and I received two packages with gold in them! HI HO SILVER – ahh or, GOLD! LOL!

The first one is from Janice and Little Rubydew. Rubydew is one of Chaps’s basset hound girl friends. Here she is looking too cute for words.


I took a picture of what they sent in. Here it is.


Wow, what great items. I will take these to the jewelery store very soon. Gold was at an all time low a few weeks ago, but it going back up. Some of these items I might put in the HOP boutique. I will keep everyone posted.

Thank you Janice and Little Rubydew! We love you
