The weather report is cautiously optimistic!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and weather report lovers…I have been wondering about our Mayor and howl she will reacts to storms.  Early this morning we had a minimal storm roll through and my heart started racing.  I tried to calm down because I did not want Daisy Lynn to feel my negative energy.  Not only did she not feel it but she slept through the 3 or 4 rumbles.  It was time to get up.

Daisy Lynn was just her sweet self!

It was very dark and raining very hard.


I calmed down and just did my normal thing.  I gathered up her toys so I would not trip over them.

She took these 2 out of the toy box.


I am cautiously optimistic.  This would mean that for the first time in 20 years I would not have a storm phobic hound.

“Mamma, don’t worry, I will protect you!”


More loving optimism later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB) where there are no frightened hounds…

    Just to let the residents know, that 9 years ago today my Lily Pad walked over the rainbow bridge. I have missed her everyday for 9 years. Mommy loves you Lily Pad. You changed my life forever and ever…Love Mommy….

    Lily with the our gully.  I have slept with it every night since she left me.

    This is her gully. I have slept with it every night since she left me…

    Even though we never got to meet you Lily Pad we love you too.

    Please don’t be nervous during storms thinking that Daisy Lynn is going to be storm phobic. I think she will be just fine because she doesn’t seem to have been mistreated. She’s safe and confident of where she’s at and that makes a big different. I think you got very lucky with Mayor Daisy Lynn.

    By the way, really precious pictures you got of Daisy Lynn for this post. I just love her!

    Lily is one of the softest looking hounds I have ever seen. If Slinky comes to Basset Hound Town for a visit she definitely wants to sit on the Lily and Chloe bench.

    That’s wonderful news about Daisy and storms. I know Chaps and Emma got very axious during storms and you and your mother did everything to calm them both.

    Maureen – Emma was a perfect angel during storms. She slept right thru them. It was Lily and Chaps that spanned the 20 years of phobic hounds. Poor things were frightened out of their wits. I did every thing I could to ease that pain.

    Cindy I think you are right. Both Lily and Chaps were from the mean streets. Lily literally and Chaps was just neglected in a kennel run until he was almost 4. Poor thing was driven crazy. He was the most affectionate hound and he never got any love during his formative years. The storms in that metal out building behind the main BoBac Kennel were a lightening rod. It’s down right cruel.

    Oh gawd poor Chaps! I can understand why he acted like he did – he was probably scared out of his wits. So glad you got to spend so many years with our sweet boy and he loved and trusted you so much. Daisy is so lucky to have you and you are just as lucky to have her!!
