Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Connor lovers.  Remember Connor?  The little boy who gave up his 200 dollars that he was saving for a basset hound pup?  He gave up his savings to the Red Cross to help the victims of hurricane Katrina!  What a kid!

Here is the blog posting I did about him on 1-20-10.


Introducing Lily Starr with her new best friend…..Connor!

Connor and Lily

Well, I was beyond touched when Connor and his Mom told me that they named their new pup after my Lily.  That brought a tear to my eye.

Lily Rudert

Lily Starr is one lucky hound.  Connor told me he was very proud to be an official resident of bassethoundtown now!  Howl cute is that?

More loving Lily and Connor Starr later…..Cat, Chaps and Emma

    The two of them look like they have so much love and kindness to give each other.

    Cat, can you give me Lily and Connor’s address Slinky would like to send his new pup some treats.


    You could have his mother email me their address so it would be okay and a surprise.
