Springing forward with dreams of long walks and many adventures!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Springing Forward Lovers….

Today was had a little touch of Spring, the sun was shining and the mid fifties were within reach.  We had a big day planned!  The morning was chilly so I decided to see if a sweater I have in the boutique would fit our Baby Mayor…


Right off the bat it seemed a bit small and Daisy Lynn was not a happy springing forward camper.


The sweater was really binding around her rump roast.


It was like a sausage casing…


It does have a very cute neck line…Let me show you…


OK, the sweater goes back to the boutique.  Good thing I did not take the tag off.  I bought it years ago for the one hounds bassethoundtown rescued but it did not fit that hound either.

So, we took off to Petsmart to meet and greet the masses.

There were 3 rescues presenting homeless hopefuls!  The Cincinnati area has really great all breed rescues.  I felt very proud…That is until Daisy Lynn got schooled by a grumpy greyhound….

See her tail between her legs?  That guy in the green shirt said, “She doesn’t like energetic, in your face dogs”!

Poor Daisy Lynn….They all turned their backs on her…


Not to worry, Daisy Lynn…

The poor greyhound was just worried.  Hope she finds a home soon so she can be the light of life like little Daisy Lynn.

Then you are not going to believe this…There were 2 basset hound puppies in another adoption area!

I really felt a connection with the little boy in the front.  He looked like the late Mayor.  I have never seen a puppy look like an old man.  It was somewhat amazing.

They call him Butch Cassidy…


Of course the other little guy was darling as well.  Butch just kind of got to me.

Poor Daisy Lynn had so much fun that we stayed too long to stop by the park.  She was exhausted.


Tomorrow is another Spring Day!

More Springing Forward Later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB) waiting for Daisy Lynn’s first walk in the park!

    Awwww, what a mean greyhound. Those dogs are usually sweet. Oh well. Daisy Lynn has her happy home already. We hope the greyhound finds his too.

    The white markings on that puppy’s eyebrows and face is what made him look old. They are both very cute.

    To see a cute picture of Jethro please go to the blog comments with Colby Chaps. I am playing around with adding photos to the comments. I am in love with Jethro. I wish I could kiss his chops……

    Poor Daisy Lynn, she has such an adventerous spirit, but it got the best of her energy.
