Welcome to our Turkish Den….

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Turkish Den Lovers.  Well, today it seemed that our Emma was stumbling a bit on my hard wood floors.  It might be that her nails are getting too long.  We are about 2 weeks behind on getting them clipped.  I am going to work on that tomorrow.  Hopefully, her vet will come over and do that for us.  But for now…welcome to our Turkish den!

Grandma and I gathered up every single throw rug we could find and lined the hallway and office to the potty door.


We are all camping out in the office tonight.

I love my new door screen.  Now Emma only has a few throw rug steps to go potty.  She is on that water pill so she needs to tinkle all night long.

I have that little pull out couch.

Howllo Howl are you my friend?

I learned that when I traveled to Turkey for work decades ago.  Of course I am not spelling it correctly.  That is howl you would say it.


More throw rugs….and memories later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Look at you! what a great picture. Did you like Turkey?
    How is Emma’s belly? Has the water retention gone down at all?

    Sandy – I loved visiting Turkey. It was so much fun and the shopping was great. Emma is still retaining water and this could be adding to her being a bit off balance. I have her tucked in for the night or until she has to tinkle!

    When people look up the wording loving care in the dictionery they should see a picture of you and your mom.

    Couldn’t resiist contacting you. We are English/Australian live in Turkey (Urgup) and have 2 beautiful male Bassetts, Mont and Winston. They certainly bring out the nice side of people. When we walk our streets all the elderly women in their scarves all smile, the cars stop and look.I believe we have two of the most photographed dogs around.
    Just wanted to say Hi
