The sun sets on 2013 – Ear we come 2014!

December 31st, 2013 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and NEW YEAR lovers.  Daisy Lynn and I would like to thank each and every bassethoundtown resident for living in our town.  I must say that the best day of 2013 happened in January.

Grandma and I adopted Daisy Lynn and she arrived in bassethoundtown to much anticipation and love…


So we started the year with sunshine and ended it with a sunset…


Grandma and I try to catch the last sunset of each year and here it is from bassethoundtown.

Seconds later…


This is the view from our dining out table.  Stunning indeed!

Goodbye 2013!

Howllo 2014!


More loving bassethoundtown and the residents later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB making beautiful lace ears and rainbow sunsets happen!)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Daisy in the Daisies Lovers…

I love the quilts and pillow cases that I bought for Chaps and Emma have Daisies on them!

You can see them on the pillows…


And on the quilts…


2014 ear we come! 

More looking forward to our Daisy garden in the front yard later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB loving rainbow daisies.)

The extraordinary moment is always there…

December 29th, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Extraordinary Moment Lovers…Tonight I was watching a PBS documentary on Rowland Scherman called Eye on the 60s.  I was captivated! A story about a man who is a wonderful photographer.  His BFF since before kindergarten said Rowland knew that,

“The extraordinary moment is always there.”  

Just as I was writing that quote down my e-mail dinged and it was Grandma sending this picture.


She sent me this extraordinary moment.

We unearthed this nightlight today while cleaning the basement.  A tiny woman playing the violin.

Grandma said, “Violin lady playing somewhere over the rainbow to Chaps and Chloe.”


More loving extraordinary moments later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with Chloe, Lily and Natalie…glowing)

Christmas 2013 for Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert!

December 27th, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Christmas 2013 Lovers…I thought I would share a few pics from our day!

My sister gifted Daisy Lynn with a stunning rhinestone collar!  It matches my bracelet!  We are going to really be shining on our walks!


Here is our young Mayor with her Grandma!

This is one of my favorite pics of them!


A great day was had by all.  Romeo and Enzo were great hosts.  I fell down on the blogging job and did not get any pics of them together.

More loving many, many more Christmas days together later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB wearing rainbow rhinestone collars…)

Holding hands with Roy G Biv!

December 26th, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and holding hands with Roy G Biv Lovers.  Do you know what Roy G Biv means?  Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet.

The colors of the rainbow…

I found Daisy Lynn in the bathroom this morning staring at a rainbow being cast on the tub…



She stood so very still staring at the color sequence.


Current research suggests that dogs can see colors but more like the chart below. The study concluded that dogs overwhelmingly preferred using color as a cue rather than brightness.


From my research this morning in the bathroom, Daisy Lynn was looking at colors!


It was so cute.

Daisy Lynn became bored and left but I decided to hold hands with Roy G Biv.


Just a moment in time.


More loving holding hands with rainbows later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB hanging with Roy G Biv)

Merry Christmas Residents!

December 26th, 2013 - 12:12 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound town and resident lovers.  Daisy Lynn and I want to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Christmas evening.  We both opened a very special Christmas gift today from Colby Chaps Mead and his Grandparents the McCarty family.

I decided to make a Christmas YouTube!

What a wonderful gift.  It made me smile on a day that was not too filled with smiles but I decided to make it a day of celebration of a life.


This scrap book make it all better…


What a day full of sunshine as bright as the yellow in Daisy Lynn’s new scrap book!

More loving great residents, friends and family later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB making scrap books out of rainbows…)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and waiting for Santa lovers…

“Mommy, tell me again, who is Santa?”


“Did you say he flies through air with reindeer and good hounds?”

“Let me look to the left!”


“I don’t see them!”

“Let me look to the right!”


“I don’t see them!”

“OMDawg!  There they are! They have landed!”


“Merry Christmas Residents!”


From your Mayor and her Mommy….

More loving magic through a young pups eyes later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB gliding through the rainbows in the Sugar Plum Express…)

UPDATE!!! Carley (now Presley) the blind basset hound finds a home for Christmas!

December 24th, 2013 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Christmas miracle lovers.  I would love to update the residents with wonderful howl-o-day news from our very own Carley, now know as Presley!

After almost 4,500 shares from the residents of bassethoundtown, various facebook pages, twitter and Basset Buddies Rescue of TX…Presley found her forever home!

As you can see…Her new cat brother is checking her out! 


Tiffany, the foster Mommy reports…

“Carly found a forever home!! Someone saw last week’s post and fell in love with her immediately. This is her in her new home with her cat brother checking her out. If I searched for years, I couldn’t have found a more perfect or more loving couple to adopt her.


They had planned on taking her after Jan 1, but the visit went so well tonight, they couldn’t let go of her. She now lives in a big, beautiful house on water with ducks she can listen to quack when she’s outside. She got exactly what she deserved after enduring years of pain.”

So…a big and bright thank you to all of the residents who shared and cared about one of our own.  Special thanks to Cindy Doyle who is a volunteer with Basset Buddies Rescue of TX and did some additional great investigative reporting for the residents.

As many, if not all of you know, blind hounds are very special to me.

I am sure Emma was watching over Presley…She knew where to send her….

My Darling Emma

My Darling Emma

More loving sharing and caring later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB working the rainbow social network;)
