Every girl needs an Easter Bonnet! For Sure…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Easter Bonnet Lovers…Before Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I took off for our Day Trippin’ adventure Grandma snapped the perfect Easter Bonnet shot!  Can you even believe howl cute this is?


Then we took off to show off!  LOL – We took off the bonnet and headed to Miami Whitewater Forest in Cincinnati.  Wow, wow, wow!

This state park is a jewel in the Hamilton County, Ohio park system.  The walking trails are paved, wide and flat.


Look behind me.  It was like entering a wonderland!


It was really a magical day filled with basset hound vibes everywhere!!!

I spotted a basset hound almost immediately…

His name is Clifford! I invited him to the bassethoundtown walking club event on May 4th, 1:00pm.


Clifford was rescued from Ohio Basset Hound Rescue and just a fine elder gentlehound.

Then as we went down the pathway we met a man who fell in love with Daisy Lynn.  His 13-year-old basset girl was at home.  She was rescued from Guardian Angel Basset Hound Rescue!

Next up…a woman and her family stopped us to say that knew the woman who runs Outlaw Basset Hound Rescue right up the road from where we were.  What a set of circumstances!

But then the best was right around the corner…an elderly man with a cap that said MARINE CORP.  He was somewhat unsteady on his feet with a big walking stick but was going to make it over to Daisy Lynn come hell or high water.  He immediately said, “I had a basset hound for 10 years”.  He went on to tell us of  the hound’s wonderful rabbit hunting skills and the delicious stew he would make. He actually called it by its correct name, hasenpfeffer.  I swear I saw a glint in his eye.  He then told me I should let Daisy Lynn do some hunting.  “Just turn her loose and she will circle around with the rabbit”, and then he said I can shoot the rabbit.  Can you image me, letting this hound, with the Easter Bonnet on, off leash to hunt down a rabbit so I can shoot it?  I had to giggle a little.  If he only knew – hehehe


He was such a great man with cherished memories of his beloved basset.  I hope we see him again!

More loving Easter Bonnets and basset memories later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB chasing bunnies but never catching them…)

    What an exciting day! Oh Daisy Lynn looks most beautiful with her bonnet on! Those paved “paths” that look like a road to drive a car on in that park. That’s way cool! And yes, what a coincidence that you met so many basset folks. Sounds like a park that you need to visit more often. You are really in a beautiful area there.

    I know Singer, Mayor Daisy and many other Basset Hound residents that would NEVER EVER want to help make or eat Hasenpfeffer.

    It looks like you had a beautiful outdoor day.
