Abby Mead is helped over the bridge by her Mommy and brother:(

May 31st, 2014 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Abby Mead Lovers…We were certainly all one of those.  The hardest part of running a town are the obituaries.  Abby of course was family to me.


She is survived by her humans.  Mommy Audra, Daddy Mike, sister Jourdan, Grandma Charlene, and Grandpa Glenn.


She is also survived by her bonded pair brother Colby Chaps Mead.


Audra was with her from the beginning of her rescue from the streets to the end of her stay here on earth.


Colby Chaps was as well…


This is one of my personal favorites of Abby Mead…with her human sister, Jourdan in the bluebonnets of TX.


The story of Abby’s rescue is an amazing one…


Until we meet again my darling Abby…May your Mommy find peace in your memory…(((Audra)))


More keeping Audra in our hearts later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB already having her safe and on a rainbow cloud…)


Who’s the fairest of them all???

May 29th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and fairest of them all lovers…I had kind of an epiphany the other day when I saw Daisy Lynn kind of noticing herself in the reflection of our sliding glass door.  I realized that Daisy Lynn really had never seen herself.  Can you imagine going through life and never seeing yourself?  So, I bought her a mirror!!!

I figured that a good place would be by her water dish, where she spends a fair amount of time…


Here she is getting a drink…


I even left a small treat next to her bowl so she would stick around a few more seconds…



So far, she just does not care…


about seeing her beautiful self…

What a pretty and sweet girl for sure…


Very interesting mirror study…I will keep the residents posted.

Do any of the town hounds look at themselves in the mirror?

More loving reflections later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB where the soul is the mirror…)




Youtube find of the day…

May 28th, 2014 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Youtube find of the day lovers…OK, admit it.  Bassets running in slow motion never gets old.  I have to search my own blog to see if I had ever posted this before, but I had not!  Pretty unbelievable for me.  hehehe

Navi the Basset Hound Running In Slow Motion 

I wonder if I can capture Daisy Lynn running like this?  It might not be as good because she is not that flabby!  hehehe

More flabby love later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB wondering if I thought they were flabby???;)

Memorial Day in bassethoundtown spent in quite reflection…

May 26th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Memorial Day Lovers…Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I decided to have a picnic at our favorite spot and spend some time in quite reflection.  It was the perfect day to do so.


We adore this park, (Devou in Covington, KY).  We also have a favorite picnic table and it was available as you can see.  I made Turkey Rubens and potato salad.

After our long, leisurely lunch we sauntered down to the wars memorial.  Many folks strolled past and smiled at Daisy Lynn…


At the base of the memorial all of the wars are remembered with granite stones.  Very touching.

The American Flag flew high and proud!


We made it back to our table area and sat for awhile under the huge shade tree.  Grandma read a question on Twitter, “do you know how many are buried at Arlington?”  I had no idea…


Over 300,000…

More quite reflection later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with our vet, Grandpa…)


What a lovely spring Sunday…

May 25th, 2014 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Lovely Spring Sunday Lovers…This weekend has been absolutely picture perfect.  Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I planted our flowers.  Is it just me, or are flowers getting more vibrant?


I took this picture and did absolutely nothing to it.  Wow…

We spend about 5 hours getting our pots planted in the back and we still have more to do in the front!!!

Daisy Lynn was a big help!  She had so much fun outside with us.  It was really cute!


Then it was time for us to get her down for her afternoon nap.


I hung up her screen door, turned her fan on and set the radio to soft spa music.  She was out for a few hours.

More loving lovely spring Sundays later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB informing me that the flowers are even more vibrant over the rainbow;)

Let’s do some Polka Dancing with Puppies;)

May 22nd, 2014 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Polka Dancing Lovers…

I would never leave this el patio at the casa!


More loving puppies and polka later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB thinking Mommy is funny…)


I Voted Today! (For myself, Love Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert;)

May 20th, 2014 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Voting Lovers…Today Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert ran unopposed in her primary election for Mayor of Bassethoundtown.

Here she is speaking to her constituents before casting her vote for herself…

“Dear Fellow Town Hounds.  I assumed the position of Mayor after the passing of the late Mayor Chaps Wayne Rudert.  Being a very young Mayor I have had so much to learn.  One thing I  have learned is that I love my family, my residents, and my job…”


“So, I made haste down to my precinct and cast my vote for myself’.  I promise to get better at the business of our town.  I feel it is time for a woman to take over and I will do my best to keep up the great work of Mayor Chaps.”

“Here I am showing off my I VOTED STICKER!”


“I will detail (and climb on) my platform as we draw nearer to the November elections…”


“My job is is never done! A couch for every homeless basset and endless treats to boot!”


“I will be busy dreaming up more platform issues as the days draw nearer to November!”



More loving “I voted” later…Cat, Mayor Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB casting their rainbow votes!”

Devou Park and the wild Daisies;)

May 18th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Wild Daisy Lovers…We went to Devou Park today!  A park that we adore and visit often in Covington, KY.  We tend to go to this park in the heat of the summer because for some reason it always seems cooler up in the hills that overlook Cincinnati.


Daisy Lynn was in fine form as she rested in the cool damp grass…


We picked this photo spot for a certain reason…


Grandma found a patch of wild Daisies!


And another money shot is born!

More Wild Daisies Later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB remembering Devou Park fondly…)

Holding hands with the late Mayor, Chaps Wayne Rudert…

May 17th, 2014 - 11:11 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Holding Hands Lovers…Ahhhhhhhhhh….the memories!

For me, there is not a better way to spend a Saturday night than holding hands with a hound.

I cherish this picture.


The power of the paw!

Maybe next Saturday night I will get a picture of Mayor Daisy Lynn and I holding hands;)

More making a mental note later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB holding hands with Grandpa)…

Cartoon find of the day!

May 15th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Cartoon find of the day lovers…I just love finding stuff like this and sharing it with the residents…


Anytime we can smile is a good thing;)

More loving smiling later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB smiling down on us everyday, as well as all of the bridge hounds…)
