Buttermilk is not a basset, she’s a mountain goat

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and goat Lovers! This just in from Marilyn from House of Puddles!
“Buttermilk is not a basset, she’s a mountain goat!”
She climbs up and over anything and anyone to get to me. And she’s quite determined about it.

I’m sure I’ll be getting some better pictures, but in these she had climbed onto the couch (always climbs, never jumps) crawled over the end table and was on her way to climbing onto my little laptop table.

Grab the golden ring on the Merry Go Round with AZ Basset Hound Rescue!

July 31st, 2009 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Merry Go Round the Hound Lovers. I am so one of those! I love the Merry Go Round so much. Recently I was at an amusement park with my nephew and I was so enchanted with the Carousel. I just love the detail of the horses, the music, the lights, the wind, and the joy!


I posted a similar picture before, but I had to post this one again. OK, back to AZ Basset Hound Rescue. I went over to their auction tonight and saw this must have item!


Can you believe it? I love it! I placed a bid. The on line bidding ends tomorrow but the live auction takes place in AZ in September. You have to check out the link and see all the cool stuff! Plus they will tell you what items will carry over to the live auction. I think my little merry go round hound goes to the live auction. My friend Devon is attending so I might have her raise a paddle for me.


There is some really cool stuff here folks!

More grabbing the golden ring later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

My Mom told me about a news story today at lunch…..

July 31st, 2009 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and news story lovers. Well, this news story has a good ending, but a weird and sad beginning.

So, my Mom and I are sitting down to lunch and we are talking away. She then looked at me and said,

“I was debating on whether or not to tell you about a local news story I heard on TV last night.”

My reply,


My Mom.

“I thought it might be too sad for you, but it does have a happy ending. The news caster said it might be hard to watch but it did have a very heart warming ending.”


“OK?” Wondering what in the world she would consider not telling me and also wondering why she had the strangest look on her face.

My Mom.

“I walked into my room and turned my TV on and they were doing a story about a back yard breeder in Trenton, OH who had badly neglected his basset hounds. I will just tell you how the story ends first, Ohio Basset Hound Rescue has the bassets and the man is being charged with animal cruelty.”


“Hum, you do realize that I have been in basset hound rescue for over 15 years, don’t you?”

My Mom.

“Yes dear, but I did not want you to be sad.”


“Let’s have a drink!”

Oh how I love Moms. They are the best in the world, just like the skin and bones Mom that was found starving in the back yard of Timothy Fields Pom Court home in Trenton, OH. (May he rot in hell).

A special thanks goes out to the resident of his neighborhood who spotted the neglect and alerted the authorities. This person has commented in the comment section to the story that I link to.

So, for postings like this I never post pictures because I let everyone reserve the right to make their own decisions if they want to see the hounds or the video.

I must say, that it is well worth the click because even though some of the pictures show some skin and bones the video is of the basset Mom and her pups in their Ohio Basset Hound Rescue foster home. It is just adorable. Mommy basset is laying in her foster Mom’s lap and the pups are getting treats. A real viewing treat for sure.



Then click the WLWT.com channel five icon to read the article and view the video. It’s a happy ending for these bassets but many more suffer the same fate. Be vigilant town residents and make sure you look out for your canine neighbors.

More loving Moms later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Did you know the Mayor is a Champion in the dog show world?

July 31st, 2009 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Chaps being a Champion Lover! Did you know that Chaps has his championship AKC – BHCA title? I think he got his about 5 years ago. I asked his breeder, when I got him, for all of his ribbons so I could display them for him. He worked hard for those. I am so glad to have them.

I want to hang them all around this poster I did of him years ago but I have not had it printed yet. I am so glad I did not have it printed because now I want to change it. I don’t want his AKC title name on the poster I want his real name….


Wayne is his Grandpa’s middle name and Vernon is the name of the street we live on. Chaps has NOTHING to do with BoBac or Birnam anymore and that is not his name.


I will show you the finished product soon….

More blue ribbon moments later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and America’s next TOP HOP model lovers! After this photo shoot the Mayor is still in the running to become America’s next TOP HOP model.


The photo shoot was grueling and hair and makeup people were challenged by the Mayor’s heavy nap schedule but the photographer FINALLY got the money shot.


This was just the shot it took to keep Chaps in the running to becoming America’s next TOP HOP model!


Chaps could not have come this far without the designer of the adornment he is wearing by
Mr. Kip Massett. Kip’s pawsome creation can be purchased for 6.00 which includes a blank bassethoundtown greeting card. Kip has donated 100 of these must have jewelry items. The masses will be clamoring soon so get yours today!


This link will take you to House of Puddles support bracelet page where you can purchase your very own creation. SUPPORT BRACELET CLICK HERE!

The yellow version is the only one you can buy. The blue ones sold out! I love the yellow because it reminds me of why the House of Puddles is so special! LOL

Special Thanks to OneMom (Kerry)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and video with sound lovers! You know I am one of those. Last night I was sniffing around YouTube and I got an e-mail from Kerry of OneMom asking me if I had seen this particular video. Well, this cute video met the same fate as many of mine are meeting.
DISABLED SOUND! Pretty soon no videos on YouTube will have any sound. Anyway, I noticed that the account holder provides a link that says, TO VIEW VIDEO WITH SOUND CLICK HERE!

It is about 7 minutes long so carve out some time today and watch. Very cute, especially with sound!

The Hounds are from BaBaHound in France…….


Ces chiens sont adorables, tout comme des petits choux. Slurp!

I went to Google Translator and typed in, “These dogs are adorable, just like little cabbages. Slurp!”

I remember once that someone told me to use the word cabbage in regards to a love one is very endearing. LOL

More pitits choux later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Vintage picture of my Chloe, with a story…..

July 28th, 2009 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Vintage Picture of Chloe Lovers. Chloe was my second basset hound, my first snuggle hound. I miss her every day.

She was my Chlosterama Young Drama Hound!


She was an under the blanket hound just like Emma. We loved to snuggle.

After Chloe passed, it was about a year later. A young boy rang my door bell. I answered. He had my Chloe’s yellow tag in his hand. Her tag had fallen off of her collar years ago. It is the yellow one in the picture. He said, “Mame, I found this and I thought you would want it.”

I looked down and my bottom lip quivered.

I told him,

“You do not know how special this is to me”!

He looked up at me and said,

“I think I know because you are crying.”

I bent down and kissed his cheek…..

He looked so proud. I am so proud of him………….

Chloe’s yellow tag is now on her urn. I touch it every day……….

More loving kids like him later……Cat, Chaps and Emma

She is so happy……..

July 28th, 2009 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and wind in the ears lovers………

How much fun is this hound having with the wind in her ears?

I am not a fan of letting hounds hang out of car windows, but this looks controlled.

I let Chaps hang out of the window going about 5 miles per hour. His neighborhood fans love it. His ears don’t flap too much. I have the window up like this person does.

Emma is happy laying in grandma’s lap when in the car.

More car riding hounds later………Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Weird YouTube Video…….

July 28th, 2009 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Hellow Fellow Basset Hound and Weird YouTube lovers:

OK, I try and try to find great basset hound videos for us and I do a pretty good job of it. At least Emma thinks so. But for some reason I had to post this one. I have no idea what it means and it is just weird!

Very Weird. I thought the title of: Basset hound searching girlfrinde, I thought it meant, Basset hound searching girlfriend. Maybe it means basset hound searching food. See what you think……

I hope the words at the end are not bad words?

More searching for food later…….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
