Holiday Cards for the HoPpers!

November 29th, 2011 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howlow Fellow Basset Hound and Holiday Cards for the HoPpers lovers.

First off I would love to thank the HARVILLE HOUNDS for reminding me about the dollar for HoPpers Holiday cards.  Last year I asked all of the residents to send us here at bassethoundtown a holiday card, depending on what holiday you celebrate, with a dollar enclosed.


I will collect all of those dollars and send them on to Marilyn at HOUSE OF PUDDLES.

Last year we hauled in 333.00 dollars for the elders!


So, please add us to your holiday card list! (Don’t forget the dollar!)

My idea of heaven on earth!

November 29th, 2011 - 3:03 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and ideas of heaven on earth lovers…..OK, this is mine!

Walking my hounds by the sea.  Sigh………

Just so dreamy.

Grandma we need to load up the Basset Hauling Vehicle and go to the sea! Maybe not all the way to North Berwick, Scotland but more like Florida!

More loving heaven on earth later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Thank You Auntie Maureen for my very own rattle toy!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Emma wanting her very own rattle toy lovers.  You may recall, back in October when the Mayor received his rattle toy from Auntie Maureen (of Maureen and Slinky) and that Emma wanted one as well!

Well…….Shimlette got hers in the mail a little while back.  It was so funny.  I opened the package while Emma was sleeping.  I threw away the envelop and laid the toy on the the couch being very gentle so it would not rattle and wake the little princess.  I turned my back for a second and this is what I saw.

Emma, grabbed her toy and was heading for her bed.  Too cute!

There is nothing more heartwarming than a child with a new toy!  hehehe

Then the big bull pushed his way into the mix!

No problem, I just grabbed the other rattle toy and everyone was happy!

More loving keeping the peace later.  Cat, Chaps and little princess….

PS – Thank you Auntie Maureen and Slinky;)

Cyber Monday and the Christmas Tree helper!

November 28th, 2011 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound, Cyber Monday, and The Christmas Tree Helper Lovers…Well today was all three of those.

I received an e-mail from O’Charley’s  this morning with a Cyber Monday deal.  Buy a 25 dollar gift card and get two 5 dollar gift cards!  I thought it sounded like a good deal.  My Mom and I frequent O’Charley’s from time to time.  The rolls….need I say more?

The deal was offered to those that sign up for their newsletter.  Anyway, what I like about it, is that you could create your own gift card.  Look at mine!


Is this not the best Santa’s helper you have ever seen?…or at least one of the best!!!hehehe

Then, the Mayors talents do not stop at gift card giving.  He is also a big help with the Christmas tree!

We still have a lot of ornaments to hang.  We are waiting for our Julian to do that.

What was so interesting is that Chaps sat and stared at his little tree for a really long time.  It was like he was mesmerized.

Emma was under her blankee snoring.  No problem, she better rest up for Julian!

More loving Cyber Monday and The Christmas Tree Helper Later…..Cat, Chaps and Emma

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound Lovers! We sure hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

November 25th, 2011 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and gobble gobble lovers…..Can you believe it?  Thanksgiving is over.  What?

I still have flowers on my back deck.

I am just so glad my sister, the best cook that I know, had our annual family dinner.  OMDawg!

When did my nephew get so tall?

Time sure flies, unlike a turkey.


We all had a great time (Chaps and Emma not included).  They were so used to having me in the bed for hours on end it was hard on them.

Until I got home and made their Thanksgiving Dinner!


“Extra white meat for both of us Mommy and then lets all get back in bed.”

More extra white meat for everyone later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

PS – I have to say my favorite thing is the turkey sammie on white bread, slice of sharp cheddar, course black pepper, and extra mayo, all at midnight.  Talk about livin’.

The bad news is, I am sick. The good news is, I have 2 therapy hounds;)

November 22nd, 2011 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and bad news good news lovers.  Yep, I have the dreaded bad cold just in time for Thanksgiving.

Right about now, the only thing I am thankful for is therapy hounds…


It became clear I was not going to nap on the couch so I moved the pack to the bed.

Emma nestled right in.


Previous to the big move she was snoring on the couch.


Thank goodness I don’t have the family coming to my house in 2 days.  I can barely lift a finger much less a turkey.

Nothing is better for the cold chills than two warm hounds.

More coughing, sneezing, and chillin’ later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

School Project!

November 18th, 2011 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and School Project Lovers!  OMDawg!  Jourdan, bassethoundtown resident, had a school project and she picked a picture that her Mom sent to me.  It was her and Colby Chaps in the blue bonnets.  Of course her Mom had this picture but she got on bassethoundtown and found it. Jourdan is always on bassethoundtown!

This picture was the perfect one for her project!


Jourdan had to find a picture for her school project and asked her teacher if she could add her basset hound.  Her teacher said, “YES”

jourdan and colby

OK, I am no teacher, but I give her an A+!

This is so darling.  I just love it.  Jourdan….you are the best.

I love this school project.  Thank you for making us all a part of it!

Love, Cat, Chaps (big daddy) and Emma

Wanna see a young Emma? Look at those eyes!

November 16th, 2011 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Emma with Eyes Lovers!  Well, we can all take a trip back in time.  I just found this picture and wanted to share it with the residents.

I love the past, present and the future.


Seeing Emma seeing is odd.  She has been blind for so long.  I really miss that look but I have her cute other looks now.

It is fun looking at old family photos.

More loving the past, present and the future later……Cat, Chaps and Emma

What a difference a day makes!

November 16th, 2011 - 10:10 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and new day lovers……

Well, well, well……If you read my blog yesterday you learned that the Mayor was not doing too well.  I thought something was wrong with his mouth.  It was like he had lock jaw or something.  He would just tilt his head up and show me his clinched teeth.  Very odd.  Anyway, last night he was getting a little better.  The vet put him on some antibiotics in case he had a toothache.  He also gave him a mild pain pill and some ear ointment.

Well look at himz this morning….


No more lock jaw for our Mayor!  It was pretty funny.  I had to give each kid about 5 fries to get this picture.  I almost dropped my new Iphone on Emma’s head.  My fingers were kind of greasy.  hehehe

More loving a new day later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

I have said it before and I will say it again….

November 15th, 2011 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and saying it again lovers…….

Why can’t I have neighbors like this?


(facebook find of the day)

I cannot imagine going out to shovel the snow and seeing this.  I might faint.  Howl much fun would it be?

The Mayor, might not agree with me but I would have to make it work.

Speaking of the Mayor……

This morning the Mayor was not quite right.  I have noticed for the past few days that he was not taking his treats very well.  He would look up at us and slightly open his mouth and barely take the treat in his teeth.  I thought something in his mouth was bothering him so I tried to look in his mouth this morning and he cried out.

Well, we can’t have a hurt mouth.  So, Grandma and I took them both to the vet.  We needed a nail clip so Emma went along for moral support and a trim.

The vet could find nothing in his mouth that looked out of the normal but his ears were a bit red and inflamed. The vet was able to look in his mouth with no trouble.  So, all in all, the Mayor is resting comfortably and we will see what happens at next treat time in the morning.

Here is Emma checking on Chaps in his worry bed before I tucked her in for the night.


More waiting to see howl the treat giving goes in the morning.  Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
