Please join me in welcoming Sam to bassethoundtown!

January 20th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and soon to be Sam lovers…

Bassethoundtown residents Marsie her hubby and Nosey have given shelter and love to a homeless boy hound who they named Sam!  Sam was rescued by an all breed rescue in the Cincinnati area called Louie’s Legacy.  It is so wonderful to have Louie’s Legacy near bassethoundtown.  They adore bassets and take many, if not all of the homeless bassets in this area.  I have blogged about them before.  Really, I can’t say enough good stuff about them.  They rescued Sam last week.

An eight year old gentle hound! Poor guy was just at his wits end.


But enter Marsie, her hubby and Nosey!  YES!

Don’t you  just love her cupcake hat?

Cupcake Marsie

Can you imagine Sam’s good luck?  Falling into the loving arms of this family?


Himz so skinny and can’t get his neuter until Marsie hides his ribs…


I think that will happen soon enough…

Right now Sam is a foster boy but who knows what will happen.  He looks at home to me!

Welcome to bassethoundtown darling Sam.  You have a beautiful sister and family.  You fell into the lap of love!

More loving new residents later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB watching over the homeless…)

The Mayor Daisy Lynn Chooses her Official Portrait!

January 18th, 2014 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Official Portrait Lovers…One of the many important  mayoral duties that confront our town’s top official is choosing an official portrait to hang at town hall.

The Mayor Daisy Lynn requested that school children be tasked with this serious and substantial duty.

Here is the Mayor viewing her selections….


OK, let’s take a closer look at her boiled down top picks….

DaisyLynn Offical2

Hum…She does like the color purple!


Wow – these 2 really show howl beautiful her eyes are….

In the end Mayor Daisy Lynn went with all four of these.  As she pointed out, there is plenty of room in the town hall kitchen area.

Very diplomatic indeed!

More loving the children from bassethoundtown pre-K later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB kinda leaning towards the rainbow Daisy with the yellow head;)

What were you doing one year ago tonight?

January 16th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and one year ago tonight lovers…

Here is what Grandma and I were doing…


January the 16th will forever go down in history as night to remember!

First, I want to thank all the residents for sending us so many well wishes as Grandma and I embarked on a new journey all the while still grieving the passing of Emma and Chaps.  It is so wonderful to have such caring and sweet residents wishing us well with positive thoughts and vibes.

After much mashing of teeth, a missed flight, tears, and finally a midnight pickup we collected our new little Mayor.  Daisy Lynn Rudert!


2013 flew by like a bright flash of light.

Daisy Lynn helped all of us move forward in her sweet and charming way.


Bassethoundtown is a cherished community with bassetabulous friends…


And many stories still to be told.

More loving gotcha days later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB taking every bit of the credit for Daisy Lynn;)


Sleeping with a wagging tail…

January 15th, 2014 - 4:04 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Sleeping with a Wagging Tail Lovers…I just love it when Daisy Lynn wags her tail in her sleep.  It is so cute.  I also love the sleep howl.  Very interesting.

Someone sent me this picture years ago.

Sleep wagging in the sun…


Isn’t it cute?  Does your hound sleep wag or sleep howl?

More loving the little things in life later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB wagging while sleeping in a rainbow stream of light…)

Norman Rockwell had a basset hound!

January 13th, 2014 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Famous Basset Lovers! I have always adored these painting depicting the 4 seasons by Norman Rockwell.


It got me wondering if Norman had a basset hound.


So I googled it.

rockwell basset 3

rockwell basset 2

rockwell basset

Yep, I figured he did.


I love these paintings and I can assure you that bassets can run that fast.  You should have seen Daisy Lynn today.  She looked exactly like this!


I know one thing…I am sure looking forward to the image of Spring!

More loving that Norman Rockwell had a basset hound later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with Mr. Rockwell..)


Tonight we light a candle for Lily Tingle – a hound with a heart…

January 11th, 2014 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and helping to send a hound over the bridge lovers…

Tonight a darling and dear resident has left us.  Lily Tingle…


Lily was and will always be a long time bassethoundtown resident.  Lily darling Lily, she had a heart on her side and in her soul.  Such a darling girl.  Lily Tingle is survived by her Mommy, Monnie, pictured here at the most recent bassethoundtown walking club event.


I have lit a candle in bassethoundtown for our Lily…


We all wish Lily Tingle Dog Speed over the rainbow bridge…


The hound angels will greet you Lily!

Chaps and Emma have met your arrival…


More loving and sending heart felt healing to Monnie from the residents, Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB with open rainbow paws…)


Howlin’ at the Vacuum Cleaner?!?!

January 10th, 2014 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Howlin’ Lovers…I know that most hounds and dogs in general don’t like the vacuum cleaner, heck, I don’t like the darn thing either.

(see her under the chair?)


Daisy Lynn went nuts today!  I don’t recall her ever doing this in the past???

I am sure I have vacuumed in the past year a few times;)


She went crazy and started howling and howling.  Our Mayor is not a howler for the most part.


I hate to think she only howls when she is upset…

It was a sweet and long howl!! Over and over…

I put her behind the gate and make quick order of the task.

Do your hounds howl at the vacuum cleaner?

More trying to find happy howls later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB howling because there are no vacuum cleaners…)

Navi the basset hound calls her Dad and tells him to come home!!! (Youtube find of the day)

January 8th, 2014 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and IPhone using Basset Hound Lovers.  Wow, Navi is so cute with her big red body!  What a silky looking coat!  Plus, she can talk on the phone!  I love that about herz…

“Howllo…Daddy…Get Home…Now!!!”

You should have seen Daisy Lynn’s face when Navi was talking!  She jumped up and was watching the Tube!!!


More loving hounds missing their parents later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with RPhones (rainbowphones;)


Tonight in bassethoundtown it will be -24 degrees with wind chill…

January 6th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and staying under blankets lovers.


Wow, the weather people said this type of weather has not happened in 3 decades.  I certainly never remember it being this shockingly cold.  I only let Daisy Lynn out for about a minute and a half and I stand by the door.  I have the back dog door open but the gate is up so she can’t go down.  I think I will close the dog door tonight just so she does not go out without me knowing it.

I saw this on facebook and had to share.  I don’t know who they are but boy o boy what a nice looking cold weather couple.


It is way too cold to go out even in these wonderful get ups but I would love to have this for Daisy Lynn.  Grandma and I were talking about booties today.  (The kind you wear on your paws!)  hehehe

More loving get ups later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB where it is always a rainbow weather dream…)


Find your light…

January 4th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Finding Your Light Lovers…If I learned one thing from mindlessly watching Americas Next Top Model with Tyra Banks it is…“You must find your light”.  LOL…wonder if that show is still on?


Tyra said that the best models know the best angles and howl the light hits them….


Work it!

Daisy Lynn was a true professional but our Super Male Model was over it!


Enzo found  his light, the glow of the refrigerator!


More loving light later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with rainbow refrigerator lights shining on their beautiful faces…)
