A beautiful June Sunday in bassethoundtown!

June 30th, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and June Sunday Lovers…

Daisy Lynn adores her back yard.


The air was perfect for being lazy with the pack…


But then someone’s dinner bell started ringing…


Nothing quite like Sunday dinner with the ones you love!

More lazy Sundays later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB eating with all of the ATB bassethoundtown resident hounds)


In Memory of Emma – gone over the bridge one year ago today:(

June 29th, 2013 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Emma Lovers…OMGawd we were all one of those!  I cannot believe that it has been one year since Emma told me it was her time to go.  It seems like yesterday.  This year has passed by so fast.

I miss my girl like crazy.


Emma was one of the best teachers I have ever had, maybe the best teacher.


I view all of my hound children as teachers.

Wise and profound are their ways of the world.


The lessons are so touching.  Their knowledge is right there for us to grab.  I pay such close attention to most every detail because within a single moment answers will unfold.

Emma smiles for ice cream

I cherished each and every moment I had with darling Emma, my child.  Her spirit and determination never wavered.  She never complained about a single thing.  She ruled our home with such joy and love.


Emma and I still have a mission, and that is to bring awareness to the dreadful disease that she accepted better than her family at times.

Hereditary glaucoma took her eyes but not her power of truth and her knowledge of love.

Emma kiss

I promised her before Hospice came, a year ago today, that I would fight on and never give up exposing those who carelessly and recklessly breed out of greed.


My research and investigations are much too detailed to relate now, plus now is not the time.  Now is the time to know in my heart that she is with her best friend and protector, The Mayor – Chaps Wayne Rudert.


Together, forever…

I miss and love you, my child, my daughter, my teacher…

Your lessons are still being taught and I am still learning from you…

Our walks were a wonderful class room

More learning and loving later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB with Grandpa keeping me wise)


Good Morning bassethoundtown residents! Wanna Play?

June 27th, 2013 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Wanna Play lovers….This morning Romeo woke up really early and was very restless.  I think he wanted to play with our very own Daisy Lynn!!!

Oh, Daisy Lynn….where are you?


Of course Miss Daisy Lynn wanted to play but first a big basset hound kiss!

“Your name is Romeo right? So, show me some RoRo-mance”!


OK, let’s go play big boy!


Romeo can come in the dog door but he won’t go out the dog door.  Wonder why?  I keep trying to teach him but he gets really scared.

More loving play hounds later….Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB glad that Daisy Lynn likes her cousins)

PS – Enzo slept in – Lucky dog….

I have some summer interns…

June 26th, 2013 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Summer Interns Lovers…I have always dreamed of having an intern.  Some hard working gal or guy that wants to learn the biz under my tutelage…

Oh, who am I kidding?  Interns work for free!

Now my dream has come true!


Summer interns!


More getting what you pay for later…Love, Cat Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB interning in the rainbow cafe!)

Bassethoundtown Hall Of Fame;)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Hall Of Fame Lovers…


Our Daisy Lynn, sun in her eyes…

A little pup not knowing all of the love that is behind her but knowing much love right in front of her…

More loving the hall of fame later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB and in my hall and heart forever)


Gotta have just one more fix of Frank…Consider it an early Howl-o-day gift;)

June 25th, 2013 - 8:08 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Frank the Tank Lovers….I had to share another YouTube find of the day.

Changing the Bed – starring Frank The Tank…(YouTube find of the Day)

June 24th, 2013 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset hound and Frank Lovers.  I posted this video back in 2010 because I loved it.  I still do.  I laughed and cried.  Frank does remind me of Chaps and he was a big juicy boy just like Frank.

Time sure does pass by so quickly.

More loving big juicy boy hounds later….Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB watching Mommy)

BAGS – Basset Rescue…Beautiful Aging Gracefully Seniors

June 23rd, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and BAGS Lovers…Have you guys heard of this fairly new rescue?  Anytime a rescue helps the senior and disabled bassets I will be all long ears!


I have worked with the Founder, Maribeth Walker and I can say that she is the real deal.  I am very excited about BAGS and working with Maribeth in the future.  For now I bought the T-Shirt;)!


Daisy Lynn and I took it out for a walk today!


We greeted a young, in training basset belly rubber in it!


I love my new T-Shirt!  Plus, the logo has all of my favorite colors…

The Baby Mayor was all tuckered out on our ride home.  She actually laid her head in the exact same spot as our Later Mayor.


Grandma and I call it “chining in”…The late Mayor always had his head between Grandma and I on the arm rest.

More loving BAGS later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB chining in on rainbows!)
