Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Colby Chaps getting a month on the Sr. Hounds Abound Calendar lovers…Well today is the last day to vote and it appears that victory for a month on the 2014 calendar is pretty much out of reach.

Voting ends tonight at 9:00pm Florida time.

Poor Colby Chaps…


You can go and look at the tally for each hound and they are really high.


There were some really, really aggressive pushing for some of the hounds on facebook and it looks like it paid off.  This is going to be a really good year for Sr. Hounds Abound with this tried and true fundraiser.

I guess I won’t throw in the town towel until tonight after 9pm.

I will be updating this post later tonight.


Again, thank you to all who voted for my grand-hound.  All of those dollars go to help the elders at Sr. Hounds Abound so they definitely will not go to waste.

Voting ends tonight at 9:00pm Florida Time

More loving my grand-hound later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB sending rainbow hail marys!)

Sunday nite comes too soon – Monday morn after the moon…

Howllo fellow basset hound and waxing poetic lovers…I hope the residents had a great weekend!  There is nothing like a crisp fall day to see one of the loves of your life participating in a band competition!


The music was fantastic and Julian’s band won their division.  Woot Woot!

Baby Daisy Lynn won her competition as well…


Being a cute puppy ready to play!

Trying to sit up, which she loves to do!


And then going belly up for the grand finale!


And then my Iphone camera died.  Poof….Gone….

Not to worry residents…I can always use Grandma’s phone until I visit the genus bar at the Apple store.

I might try to get an appointment Monday morn after the moon;)


More loving letting the band play on…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB basking in the moon light)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Town Resident Lovers…

Well, you can’t go wrong with this blast from the past.

This was back in 2006.  Julian has his drivers license now.

Howl time flies…

More loving the world and all it’s glory later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB rolling and flapping on rainbow clouds)

Grandma Cat Rudert, can you ask the residents to vote for me again?

September 23rd, 2013 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and voting for Colby Chaps Lovers…Poor thing is kind of behind in the voting booth and that is just odd for a bassethoundtown candidate!!!

I think we  need to send a few more bucks to help Chaps son get a month in the Sr. Hounds Abound 2014 Calendar.  There is just a few more days left and Colby Chaps is pleading!!!


“Mez really wants to winz mez birhdaz month!” 


Sr. Hounds Abound is a retirement home for elder Basset Hounds in FL.

Since the elders cannot waddle this is their big fundraiser for the year!

Thank you from the bottom of Colby Chaps Belly!  hehehe

Also thank you so much to the residents that have already voted!  That means so much!!!

More loving the old hounds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB, proud of being voted into the Sr. Hounds Abound Calender by the residents!)


End of summer selfie with Daisy Lynn Rudert…

September 22nd, 2013 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and end of summer lovers…

To document the day Daisy Lynn and I took some selfies!!!

This one is of us kissing, just a bit of puppy love!


This one was my favorite – I call it…

Two Mayors and a Mom heading into autumn…


More loving the last day of summer later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB where it is always the season of love.)

PS – Bye, Bye Summer – we hardly knew ye…


Friday YouTube Find of the Day!!!

September 20th, 2013 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Beach o’Bassets Lovers…I was thinking the other day that I have not been on YouTube that much.  I really cannot figure out why.  I guess anymore you have to wade through all of the advertisements of losers selling puppies and the endless commercials.  Oh howl times have changed.

It certainly was worth it to bring you this Friday Find from Australia where the hounds run free and the popsicles are a plenty!

With the end of our summer right around the corner and our days of beach vacations soon a memory let’s enjoy Moose, Twiggy & George!

More loving the endless days of summer later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma reporting rainbow waves for the weekend)

Daisy Lynn Rudert cashed in her entire allowance today!

September 18th, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Allowance Lovers…Grandma has been feeling a bit under the weather for a few days and Daisy Lynn is missing some much needed belly rubs!

She decided to cash in her entire allowance of 5 bucks and have me get Grandma some flowers from the “manager’s specials” section at Krogers!!!


What a good little grand-hound!

More getting Grandma well later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB sending healing drool)


Chaps sent me a message from the rainbow bridge via facebook!…

September 15th, 2013 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and message lovers.  I guess I should have said, Chaps sent us all a message from the rainbow bridge via facebook.  Let me explain.  Over the weekend I have been on facebook following 2 of my friends that live in Japan.  They were on vacation seeing different interesting places around Japan.  They had Hal the basset hound with them.  I adore Hal and the girls.

This is Kaz, Mari and Hal.


I kept commenting that I wished I was on the trip and howl much fun it would be.  The girls kept posting their pictures and then last night I saw this one.


It hit me immediately.  Chaps looking at me, the way he always looked at me, with adoration which was mutual, his head resting on the cloud.

I asked Kaz to tell me more about the picture but she has not gotten back to me yet.  The Google translation from her comment said,


They had been previously commenting that the weather was bad and where was the sun?  This comment referred to briefly seeing the sun, (little did they know it was my son!)

I printed out the picture in black and white and lightly traced out what I saw.  I want to give the residents a closer look.


Chaps looking at me, using the cloud as a pillow.

Here are some pictures that remind me of the way he appeared in the clouds over Japan.


And this one…


And also this one…


Amazing really.  Facebook???

More communicating later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB – I said it before, I will say it again, laying on clouds)

Couch or birthday bed, couch or birthday bed;)?

September 14th, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and the ultimate answer lovers….



Oh he is one happy grand-dog.  Wish I was sitting on the couch next to himz…

More loving Colby Chaps Later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB in charge of the voting booth)

Daisy Lynn Rudert and the Purple Hostas!

September 11th, 2013 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Purple Hosta Lovers…We have the most beautiful Hostas blooming up our walkway.  I had to share with the residents.

Daisy Lynn was not too happy about it.


She was not willing to wait for her walk and started to get a bit miffed!

You can see her lip starting to break into a howl.


I pushed my luck and tried for one more purple perfection….


OK, OK….

Let’s get started on our walk…

We did the Hostas proud!

More loving purple mornings later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB howling by the rainbow Hostas!)
