Chaps still in the running to become America’s next TOP HOP model!

July 29th, 2009 - 6:06 pm KY Time

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

More “Your still in the running to becoming America’s next TOP HOP model” later……Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Chaps, you are the top model paws down. Marilyn has a houseful of houndies at the HOP. She gives such wonderful love and care to these precious senior hounds.
    Thanks Cat for the totally pawsome cards you donate to go along with the bracelets. Your hand is not only on my arm but always touching my heart for all you do to help the breed we love.
    Kip, Gus, Bonnie and Charlie Bear

    chaps…you are one hunk of model there big guy!

    you look mah-va-lous!

    i’m thinking tho that little bracelet would make a good thing for buster to have …it might keep his mouth shut when he is out in my garden and keep my tomatoes safe! (and support a great cause too!)

    damn fool boy is eating all my GREEN tomatoes now…plucking them right off the vine…before they even have a chance to get ripe…at this rate i won’t even have any ripe ones.

    i think i should say…they might have a better shot of getting ripe then he has of living to see labor day…iffen you are catching my drift.

    if someone comes across a small 42 lb tri-color basset boy with a green tomato stained forehead and snout…you might want to share that piece of info with him!!!!

    Aw, Chaps, you do look super stylin’. Yellow is the perfect color for those bracelets..hehe. How cool of the Mayor to disrupt his napping schedule for this TOP HOP modeling gig.

    I got 2 blue ones a long time ago but I like the yellow better! I tried putting it on my dogs but it was too big. I was kind of disappointed about that. Oh well. I’ll probably end up getting a yellow one just cuz I have the same feeling that Cat does. It fits more of what HOP stands for. Or maybe we could wear them around our collar? We’d be stylin’ then huh?

    Cindy, after I took the pictures of Chaps he got up and started walking. He was almost limping while looking at the bracelet. Then he stopped and shook his paw until the bracelet flew across the room. It was so funny.

    That’s too funny Cat! I got a good visual. Yeah, I have the same question as Maureen and Slinky. We wanna see the Mayor on the telephone book cover! I think that is so appropriate that the Mayor will be on the telephone book cover. Hehehehe

    Mr. Mayor, you are working too hard. I think you should take Friday off.
