This is my idea of perfection…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and perfection lovers….Yes, there is perfection in this world and this would be my idea of it!


I was going through some of my 10,000 pictures in IPhoto and ran across this tranquil painting. I must have seen it on the internet some where. Wonder who the artist is? Anyway… it!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Cyber Monday lovers….

Now this is what I call a nice Cyber Monday find on the internet super highway traffic jam. Do you know anyone looking for a sweet gal?

She is in the Putnam Human Society in Carmel, New York! Watch her video and fall in love like I did!

I was just eating lunch and Eleanor came across as a google alert. Now that is what I call a great Cyber Monday find!

Eleanor is a doll baby!

Good luck sweet heart.

Width vs Height?

November 28th, 2010 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and doggie door lovers….When I was deciding on what doggie door to buy I took all things into consideration. The hounds needed a wide door but not a high door. It was so funny. I sure wish had pictures of the memories I have of the ordeal. At the time I had a carpenter working for me doing all kinds of stuff, including installing a doggie door in the door he installed in my back room (turned a window into a door) attached to a small deck with a roof he built and a set of wrap around steps! Goodness gracious I felt like that guy lived with me. Anyway, back to the why I wish I had pictures. This guy was one serious carpenter!

He had me gather Chloe and Lily prior to ordering the doggie door. He whipped out his tape measure and started measuring the girls. I was laughing so hard. His diagnosis, “order the extra large one”! As I look back on it, I am so glad I did!


This is Romeo coming through with ease! Who would have thunk that 14 years ago the extra large doggie door was the right decision? (for height)

But for width, it was always the right decision…


My Dad designed the entire thing. His main concern was that the girls would have access to the back yard anytime they wanted. My Dad never did anything small and even had the security system I bought hooked up to the doggie door! I love this design and it is the most favorite thing in my dog house! hehehe

I am so thankful this thanksgiving weekend for memories like this.

More thinking that Romeo is as well! Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

I decided to clean my office today:( Ugh…

November 26th, 2010 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and cleaning office lovers. Ugh…Who wants to clean their office on a holiday weekend? Not me, but I got into a groove. I had a huge pile of junk sitting around for about 5 years. It turned into a monster that I hated and I had to tackle. Well, that turned into an entire office cleaning.


It is no where near done.

Get this, I found an old journal from the early 1980s. Inside I found a note. It was from a gal on her honeymoon. We were on a flight together from Istanbul to London. We laughed the entire way. Her hubby was in the seat behind us. I offered to move but we didn’t. Liz and I had drinks and had a hoot. I often wondered what happened to her.

Get this! I found her on facebook today. CRAZY?

She responded and said that her and her husband have 3 girls. We are now FB friends.

Life is crazy!

More loving drinks between Istanbul and London memories later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

Black Friday, our way!

November 26th, 2010 - 4:04 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Black Friday Lovers….

In our opinion (Romeo and me) this is the best way to spend Black Friday! All tight on a love seat!


I had to tell you that this is a LOVE SEAT in my office. Can you believe that he jumped up there and squeezed himzself in next to me? It was so cute…

Nah, I don’t spoil him….

More Love Seat stories later……Cat, Chaps and Emma

P.S. the Mayor was getting a massage by Grandma in the living room. hehehe

What are all the residents doing for Thanksgiving?

November 24th, 2010 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and big meal lovers……

I was wondering what all the residents are doing for Thanksgiving. Grandma and I are going to a really nice buffet at a place called The Phoenix. It is so old Cincinnati.


I am so excited to do Thanksgiving out. I don’t love being in the kitchen. I do hate doing dishes. So, this is a WIN, WIN! For me but not for the kids!

Did I mention, no left overs????

Poor kids. I wonder if McDonald’s is open tomorrow?


More wondering what ya’ll are doing tomorrow….

Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Howl cute is this basset hound picture?

November 23rd, 2010 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and basset hound picture lovers….

I just had to share. I bought this picture off of ebay back in 2006. I think it is a print from the 1960s done by artist George Buckett…


Click on the image and enjoy all of the detail. As I recall, I paid 10 dollars for this framed joy but the shipping from Australia was 20 dollars. I just had to have it!

It sits on a shelf in my office and I look at it about 100 times a day!

Totally adorable….

More sharing adorable later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
