Granny Smith, a new Kong and Daisy Lynn!

February 27th, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Granny Smith Lovers…OMDawg…I love Granny Smith Apples.  I was having one with my breakfast this morning and Daisy Lynn wanted a bite.  Can hounds have apples?  Who better to ask than my boyfriend, Google….

Yes, dogs can have apples with no problem.  A taste of apple a day keeps the vet away!

Google suggested that I put a few small pieces in a Kong.  Guess what?  I bought her a Kong that I had not given her yet.   Let’s give it a whirl.


Sounds like fun!


This kept her busy for about 20 minutes…


She enjoyed her Granny Smith slice and her new puppy Kong…

Mini video click link….



But wait a second…I started to wonder if these rubber Kongs were safe.  Did they have that awful BPA in them or other chemicals?

So back to boyfriend Google.  It was strange.  I could not find the answer which is very odd.  So, I called Kong.  The answer is “no”.  Kongs are made to the strict regulations that human Children’s toys are made to.  The customer service rep was awesome and I made a suggestion to her.  Add this fantastic information to your website.  Concerned parents want to know these things are safe.

More loving safe toys and Granny Smith later….Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) laying under an apple tree;)


Daisy Lynn is so cold natured! She would have never made it in the Denver area!

February 26th, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and warm weather lovers…Well, in bassethoundtown we cannot wait for the good weather.

When I was talking to the previous owner of our Daisy Lynn, she was telling me that she was excited for her to move to a warmer climate.

I can certainly see why!  If the heat is on she will find the vent!DaisyLynnheat

She loves warm air blowing on her.

Daisy Lynn would have never made it in Denver!  hehehe

More loving looking forward to the warm weather later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) loving rolling in the spring grass

Bath Day for a Baby Mayor…

February 25th, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Beautiful Hound Lovers…OMDawg Daisy Lynn looks so great.  Her fur feels like butter cream frosting.

Daisy Lynn was a bit nervous being in the bath environment….

This is the first time we have washed a basset in the tub!  That in and of itself was exciting!


For about 1 minute!  It was like we were lowering her into a torture chamber….


The entire bath lasted about 3 minutes…

Grandma and I worked like crazy but got her soaped up and rinsed in record time.

It was worth it!

Look howl she glows….


And glows….


What just happened Momma?


Herz don’t like her first bath day…

More butter cream frosting fur later…Love Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB) knowing exactly howl she feels….

We had a photo session today to update my avatars on the internet!

February 24th, 2013 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow basset hound and avatar lovers…Well, I thought it was time to update my avatars on my social networking sites.  You know, that profile type picture that identifies who you are.

So, of course Grandma was the photographer.  She rocks the IPhone camera.

First off we had to wake up Daisy Lynn…


She had to get ready for her close up!

Grandma had to help her up on the couch next.  Oh, she is sooooo cute!


OK, it got off to a rocky start.


I like this one but not quite right….


OK, this one is it!  Our avatar on the social networking sites.  I do love it!


Just 2 simple gals with a dream….

More loving photo shoots and not baths later….Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) approving….

Saturday night plans – Bird watching and smiling about it!

February 23rd, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and Saturday Night Lovers….

Tonight Daisy Lynn and I have big plans.  Laying around looking out the window!

Guess who was sitting right in the front yard?  Yes, you got it!  Verna or one of her earlier fledglings.  It was so cute.


I called our young Mayor’s name and told her that we take care of our robins in bassethoundtown!


She smiled…


Spring is right around the corner but Saturday night is here right now.  We hope you have a great night!

More loving Verna and her flock later….Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB) with some of the flock…all smiling….

One never knows who you will meet when doing a basset hound home visit;)

February 22nd, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Home Visit Lovers…Today our very own Cindy of the Doyle Hounds went on a home visit for Basset Buddies Basset Rescue of TX.  She went to see if the applicant for a new rescue hound would pass the home test.  Of course they passed with flying colors and Cindy said it was the perfect home for any basset.  Howl could it not be?  Look who is also waiting for a new friend….

His name is MAYOR!!!


OK, Howl sweet is this guy?  Can you believe howl much he looks like our very own late Mayor?

Well, Cindy could not either so she sent me some pictures of the big sad guy.

He recently lost his bonded mate named Molly who went over the bridge…


Mayor has been so sad and lonely.


Now Mayor will have a friend to live with in his big beautiful home and be his new companion.  That extra bed will be filled with love soon.


Thank you Mayor for coming to me today and introducing yourself.

Thank you Cindy for sharing this wonderful hound who so reminds me of my darling and strongly missed Mayor.

2-22-13 is a good day for all of us…

More loving Mayor from TX later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) making dreams come true over and over again…




Daisy Lynn is not pleased! It is ice raining in bassethoundtown:(

February 21st, 2013 - 11:11 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Ice Rain Not Lovers….Well, tonight we have a weather situation.  Daisy Lynn is not amused…

“You want me to take my delicate areas out in this?”


Yes, Daisy Lynn, you have to go potty outside!

More not loving Daisy Lynn trying to hold it…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) wondering why she does not just go on the back deck.  Mommy has hot water installed and the deck is covered!

Green Beans and Fortune Cookies!

February 20th, 2013 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and treat lovers…Since our Daisy Lynn is so young Grandma and I want to start her off on some veggie treats.  Of course we are going add the occasional fortune cookie.  Anyone remember?  It was the favorite of our late Mayor.

Here is an old blog posting I did about it….

More about this later…

So….We know Daisy Lynn likes carrots but what about green beans?

It sure looks promising…(or is she looking at the cookie?)


OK, seems like a GREEN BEAN light!


Daisy Lynn is extremely food driven and seems to love everything so we will continue with the green beans.  I buy frozen with nothing added.  Just fresh then frozen green beans in the bag.

OK, now for the late Mayor’s favorite treat which we will give in moderation.


Now the moment of truth…Daisy Lynn’s first ever fortune!  This is exciting!!!….


What does that say?


What a fitting first fortune.  So very fitting indeed!

Wanna see the Mayor’s last fortune?  Talk about fitting…


What does that say?


No truer words have ever been stuffed into a cookie….

I miss the old man….

But, I better go check on my “small gift of joy”!


No Mayor Daisy…gym shoes are NOT treats!

More loving fortunes later….Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) making all of our good fortunes come true….(minus the gym shoe)


Off they go…

February 19th, 2013 - 3:03 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and off they go lovers….

Well guess who went home today?  Yes, the cousin dogs.  All good things must come to an end;)


I think Daisy will be fine.  I know Romeo and Enzo will.  I was worried about Daisy Lynn getting to attached and then, them going away, but I don’t get that feeling anymore.  I think she loves being part of that pack but she is OK with them leaving.

Not to worry, baby Daisy…They will be back in…let’s see….about 4 weeks!

More being part of a pack later….Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB) handing them their hats…
