Results are in…….HE GOT A MONTH!!!!!!!

September 30th, 2009 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Can I brag……for all of us! Chaps Got a Month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Howllo fellow Bounders lovers! this just in from Wen of Sr. Hounds Abound!

First off! WOW! The Bounders did well by your efforts at getting votes! I was so not expecting the numbers to be so high because of the economy, but we did well. A little over 5200.00 came in to help the Bounders get through the year!
I thank you from deep within my heart. The generosity of Basset folk never ceases to amaze me.
So, without further delay.
This is the standings. The first column is the hounds name, of course. the second is the amount of votes each hound got and the third is their ranking. The ones in red are the top twelve.

That would be, from 1st to 12th, Abby Fuller, Moses, Buttons, Elder Clara, Mayor Chaps, Lizzie, Buttermilk, Molly Moen, Charlie, Longshot, Maggie and Daisy Mae.
If the slaves of these hounds will email me, I need from Abby, only one month, as she gets first choice, Moses 2 months, and everyone else, please send me 3 months of your choice for the placement of you hound in the calendar.
Aroooos from all the Bounders. And again, my gratitude for your caring about them.

We are so anxious.

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

September 30th, 2009 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and not getting to see a recent BHT video ponderers. It has been so long since I made a video of the kids.

I was wondering if you wanted to see a really old one?

Just foolin’ around with photoshop!

September 30th, 2009 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and foolin’ around with photoshop lovers.

I am addicted to photoshop. I just love graphic design as you can probably tell from my website! I just ran across this image of Lily that I photo shopped about 7 years ago! It kind of reminded me of the color of forget-me-nots. You know, the picture of the September flower I posted earlier today?


Kind of cool! I am looking forward to learning so much more.

More graphic design and forget-me-not Lily later…Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Emma supports Mayor Chaps!

September 30th, 2009 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and supporting the Mayor Lovers. I am not going to drone on and on about Chaps in the Sr. Hounds Abound Calendar contest because I hate to nag my dear friends and readers. So, we would now like to thank everyone who voted for Chaps in the Sr. Hounds Abound Calendar Contest with this cute picture of Emma from the same photo shoot! This is a tree about 5 minutes from my home.

I actually just cleaned up my desk top and changed my screen saver to this photo! It is so fall festive!


Please feel free to click on it for a larger version and save it for future screen savers or enjoy it as your fall screen saver. Remember, you don’t have to see beauty you can also smell it, Emma Rudert…

More profound statements from our Emma later…Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

This happens every day like clock work…..

September 30th, 2009 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Clock Work Lovers: I am not a big fan of Chaps and Emma playing too hard because of several reasons…

1.) Emma has had back surgery.

2.) Chaps is Mr. ruff house and he just does not know his manly strength.

3.) Emma won’t play exactly how Chaps wants her too and he gets mad sometimes.

4.) They totally tear apart their bed and I have to make it over. (Poor me)

5.) Emma is blind and I worry about her needlessly.

OK, number 5 is the most absurd reason to worry about play time. It is so funny. Chaps will get into this position and kind of snort like a bull, actually blowing mist in her face from his nose. Oh I hope you were not eating???? But he does this to let her know where he is. It is so cute! Then he kind of hides…..

Chaps bull snort

Watch out Chaps, Emma has radar!

Emma Radar

Did you know the Mayor had those kind of moves in him? Emma actually goes up on her hind legs like a polar bear at times.

This is better than HBO on demand!

More keeping ourselves amused later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Waiting to see if the Mayor get’s to be a calendar boy!

September 30th, 2009 - 4:04 pm KY Time

Waiting for SHA results

Yes folks, we are totally into it. LOL!

More checking the tally later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Goodbye September…..You flew by

September 30th, 2009 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and September Lovers: Wow, was it just us or did September fly by? September is such a pretty month in Kentucky. This year it was really rainy which means we should have a fantastic fall. Lots of color. Here is a picture I took of Emma when she could still see. She is walking under a beautiful Japanese Maple which had turned bright red. I call it Chloe’s tree because she loved it so much.

What a great picture……


Math fact about September…..from Wikipedia

September begins on the same day of the week as December every year, because there are 91 days separating September and December, which is a multiple of seven (the amount of days in the week).

September’s flower is the forget me not!


And September birthstone is the sapphire which means clear thinking.


So long September……….

More clear thinking and forget me nots later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

I just saw this on Facebook….

September 29th, 2009 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Dean Russo Art Lovers: Have you ever heard of him? He is from Brooklyn, NY. I just love his art. It is so my style. I like to look at art over and over and see something different.
