A nice crop of spring freckles are coming in on the Mayor!

May 13th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and freckle crop lovers…Interestingly, today Grandma and I noticed a rather large and impressive crop of spring freckles.


This picture is not that great but you can see all of the ticking coming in.  I know in Emma’s case the freckles came in more in the spring and summer.

I actually did a blog posting about it.  Click here to see Emma’s impressive summer crop!

Make sure to click each picture on that link;)

This is a close up of Daisy’s crop…


This will document the crop so I can report back to the residents come summer.

Do any of you notice a freckle change with the season?

More loving the ever changing hound later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB now sporting rainbow freckles…)

It was a Jolly Time on Mom’s day!

May 12th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Jolly Time Lovers…The 3 girls spent the day at Jolly Park in Campbell County KY…We have been to this park before.  It is very close to Dr. Leick, our holistic vet.  It is very pretty and encompasses about 1000 acres.  The views are majestic just like this one of an old Daisy (12yrs) meeting the young Daisy Rudert!


The park is very beautiful and has so much to offer but we find the walking is not that good.  I think folks go for the camping, scenery and the fishing.


So we did enjoy the scenery…


There is some really good camping and horse trails as well.  The golf course is one of the best in the area I am told.


The 3 of us really, really enjoy exploring parks and look forward to many more this spring, summer and fall.

Daisy Lynn seems to be doing a bit better in the car, not as much crying.  She does not do this anymore…


She used to push her mouth up against the netting and wine and cry for most of our travels.  Is that not the most pathetic thing you have ever seen?  She adores her walks when we get to where we are going.

Good thing she is finally getting the hang of it.

More Jolly good times later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB layin’ and lazin’ by the rainbow fishing hole…)


To all the Moms of bassethoundtown…Have a 4 paws up day!

May 11th, 2014 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and 4 paws up Mother’s day lovers!  I wish each and everyone of you a spectacular and slobberific day!!!

I have been a Mom of bassets for over 20 years.  I thought I would share this picture of Emma and I moments after we arrived home from picking her and Chaps up from TX.  We had been on the road with Grandma for about 2 weeks.


I think my face kinda says it all about the love of a Mother.

I also think that our kids make us much better people.

More Mother’s Day pictures to later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma at the bridge eating from the rainbow Mother’s day buffet;)

May 8th, 2014 - 5:05 pm KY Time

UPDATE – DARLING AND BELOVED JETHRO HAS CROSSED OVER THE BRIDGE TO MEET HIS FRIEND RUGS.  Jethro was able to spend the last weeks of his life with his Mom, Cindy’s full attention.  He got to eat exactly what he wanted and was very much doted upon.  He will be missed very much by the bassethoundtown residents but especially by me.

Dog Speed Boyfriend, Dog Speed –





Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Best Boy Lovers…Howl lucky was I to wake up this morning and find 2 e-mails from 2 best boys…

First up was best boy, aka, grandson, aka Colby Chaps Mead…

Oh, to lay with the Spring Sun Shining bright on a belly…Warms the soul…


Then the next best boy…aka Best Boy Friend Forever…aka longest ears in bassethoundtown, aka Jethro Doyle checked in to say, “good morning my love…”


Oh that face that darling beautiful face.  Jethro, bassethoundtown resident for about 7 years, since Chaps and Emma founded the town, has not been feeling too well.  Himz Mommy has been tending to his every need.  Let’s all send some drool vibes.

More loving best boys forever…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB mingling with spring sunrays…)

Hey Look!!! The Basset Hound Walkers had their monthly walk the same day as bassethoundtown!!!

May 6th, 2014 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Basset Hound Walking Lovers…It always amazes me howl the hounds are for the most part all off leash.

“Oh to be in England now that spring is here…”

Can you believe that basset, harlequin great dane combination???  What the what???

More loving walks with bassets later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB walking with Grandpa)

Bassethoundtown Walking Club Spring 2014 Event!

May 4th, 2014 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Walking Club Lovers…If one could have ordered a perfect day for a walk it would have been today!  Just super duper bassetabulous.  The first walkers to arrive were Bumper and Abby!  Abby was off to the side but I must showcase Bumper, my darling Bumper…I could tell when he got out of the car he was as excited as a hound in a wiener shop!


I know he knew exactly where he was and it was going to be fun!
Just look at his look of contentment…


Upon arrival every hound was served wieners on a silver platter!  We don’t mess around in bassethoundtown!  hehehe

Judy captured this shot right after Nosey pawed the platter and many of the wieners rolled into her mouth! There is even a wiener mid air!  She even shoved some Daisy Lynn’s way!


Gotta love a BFF!


One of the highlights of the day was meeting Sam Hall Newbold!  Marsie, his Mom brought a daisy collar for my Daisy Lynn to match Nosey and Sam, pictured with Tom the husband and Mr. Hall the Grandpa!


Then it was off to the dog park and a world of smells!


A beautiful time was had by all!


And to top it off the “traditional” photo of yours truly holding as many hounds as I can! About 4 or 5 were left out of the shot…


The Mayor Daisy Lynn will be sweet dreaming tonight!


More silver platters filled with wieners later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB sending the perfect weather and friends…)


Evelyn Leavens – Day Trippin’ with The Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert

May 1st, 2014 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Day Trippin’ with Daisy Lynn Lovers…I was looking for a header image for the sub-blog called Day Trippin’ with The Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert…

This is an image that the late Evelyn Leavens sold to me along with the copyright.  I just love it.  I think it will fit perfectly to highlight Daisy Lynn’s Day Trips.


More looking forward to lots and lots of day trips to come…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with Evelyn day trippin’ with Boswell…)
