Cat & hounds

I am going to do another photo shoot this weekend and change my profile pictures all over the internet!

My Mom will be the photographer.

I am, of course, older.  Chaps has a white face.  Emma is blind. The leather couch is still the same. I still have the shirt and the pants.  LOL

More saying “Cheese” later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Well….the ribbon project is finally complete and boy does it look good!

January 17th, 2012 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and completing project lovers.  Well…..first off I want to thank everyone for reading about the Mayor and all of his ribbons.  This project has been years in the making and for the life of me I cannot figure out why it took me so long.

It turned out even better than we had hoped for.  What do you think?

My Mom and I were trying to figure out howl to get the Mayor into position for a picture.  We were talking and talking about it and Chaps just got up, walked over to his bed, got in, and posed for me.  It was crazy!  Look howl perfect himz is! What a smart and darling boy.

I had a wonderful time sharing our ribbon project with our dear resident readers.

All of our hounds are Champions in our hearts!

Breaking news re: The Mayor’s shocking sleeping scandal!

January 15th, 2012 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and worried about the Mayor’s shocking sleeping scandal lovers…..

I am happy and thrilled to report that last night the Mayor stayed in bed all night and was not jumping out of bed even once.  I love when I can figure out a horrible problem like this. (Read below for the original blog posting).

This is first thing this morning.

The Mayor’s wall of honor is coming along nicely!

January 14th, 2012 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and wall of honor lovers….Today Grandma and I went to the copy center at Staples to pick up the poster art I had designed for our beloved Mayor.  This guy was working on it!

He placed it on foam core and then laminated it.

I waited too long to showcase his hard work.

I love it!

When we got home we started arranging all of his ribbons!

Grandpa (Wayne Rudert) would be proud!


Wow there were so many we ran out of room.

I know I showed you guys all of the ribbons but this is howl they will fit on the poster.

I will hang it in my office tomorrow.  On the wall where Grandpa and Chaps are pictured!

I work hard in my office and Chaps worked hard for his ribbons.  It will be a great inspiration for me.  I admire Chaps for being such a good boy.  Bless his heart. The show circuit is a hard one.

More giving credit where credit is due later…..Love, Cat, Champion Chaps and Emma….

PS, notice howl the word Champion also has the word Chap(s) in it?  No surprise there!  hehehe

The Mystery of the scared early morning (very early) Mayor:~[

January 14th, 2012 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Mystery Lovers…..Well I have been very puzzled for the past several night as to what is going on???  During the middle of the night into the early morning the Mayor has been jolted out of bed over and over again.  He jumps up and leaps out of bed and then he puts on a brave face and crawls back in.  After about the 3rd or 4th time he sometimes vomits due to his fear.  Oh I feel so bad for himz.  I have racked my brains and checked every inch of his body and the bed.

I want himz to rest comfortably!


So, then it hit me….Jolted out of bed?????

See that blankee wrapped around Emma?


See this other blankee?  This is the large one we sleep with as well.


They turn into static electricity factories over night.  Not only does Emma throw off tons of heat but she scratches during the night generating static electricity.  The Mayor is really being jolted out of bed!  We all know howl delicate he is.

So, I am going to do an experiment tonight.  I am going to cover emma with a thick quilt and see if that can cut down on the shock factor.

We need to get back to this!


And no vomit!

More loving figuring it out later.  I will let the dear residents know.

Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
