Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Labor of Love Day…


May all your days be labors of love…sniff on residents, sniff on!

More loving moving forward later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB resting!)


To Incline or recline? That is the question!

August 29th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Restaurant Review Lovers…Grandma and I made the decision to Incline!  It’s a little place that sits atop one of the many hills of Cincinnati.  Upper Price Hill to be exact.


The Incline Public House in one fashion or another has been around since 1874. Grandma remembers riding the crazy incline contraption as a kid.


Can you imagine?


The food was good but too expensive.  We are thrilled to eat here but 70 dollars for lunch is way too much.  We had an appetizer, 2 sandwiches, a mac and cheese to share and 2 glasses of wine.

Daisy Lynn had it right.  She decided to recline instead of incline!


I was getting ready to put the cover of her office bed back on after washing it. I put it up on the ottoman to reach it better.  I walked out to answer my phone and she ran by me with her favorite snake toy.

“Reclining is free Mommy and you get me!”

More reclining instead of inclining later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB eating free sandwiches….)

P.S. – This place does not seem appropriate for dogs even though they have a huge outside patio.  They might allow them but I would call first.  I know I would not take Daisy Lynn even if they did allow dogs.  Too many railings and too many people.

Homemade Frosty Paws from Aunt Judy!

August 27th, 2014 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Homemade Frosty Paws Lovers…Today Judy (of Bumper and Abby) and I went out to lunch.  We had a great outing and the highlight was ending up on the floor with Bumper and Abby.  I was too busy rubbing necks and bellies that I forget to get a picture which is totally upsetting me right about now!

Judy sent me home with 3 of her homemade frosty paws!

Daisy Lynn attacked me when I walked through the door.


Grandma could not get it to her fast enough!


The heat index was 100 degrees today!  The yum index was 100%!

More loving cool treats on a hot day later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB waiting for the recipe!)

PS – Judy will you write down the recipe in the comment section?  I actually tried some of this and it was delicious.  Thank you so much.  So much fun today!

Remember TV dinners? I sure do!

August 26th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and TV dinner lovers…Well those things are a thing of the past but not the idea!


Peeling back that hot foil always burnt our fingers…


Everyone had their own TV tray!


Now even Daisy Lynn does…Well, she is under mine!


Now all we need is Midwestern Hay Ride on the tube!  Anyone remember?

More loving TV dinners and hot foil memories later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB on the rainbow hay ride!

Morning Dew Sweepers, Facebook find of the day!

August 25th, 2014 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Morning Dew Sweepers Lovers…This is a kennel in Spain.  Someone at this kennel who is a bassetabulous artist also does illustrated standards of the basset hound.  This is just one of the many illustrations that I love…


This particular illustration showcases the correct head of a show basset hound!


Wonder howl Daisy Lynn’s bean would stack up?


More loving morning dew and pretty hound heads later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma posing for illustrations…)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Fun Find Lovers…I was going through some of my old stuff and found this card I had saved.  Isn’t it just the cutest?


Anyone have any fun planned for the weekend?  Now I am in the mood for an opera!

More loving fun finds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps, the bass-baritone and Emma the DIVA ATB)

For your lunch time viewing pleasure…YouTube find of the day!

Howllo Fellow Basset and walking with Hound Lovers…Most of us are stuck at work and can walk our hounds right now but you can enjoy these 18 as they roam Belwade Farm in Scotland.

Let me just say this is pure 9 minutes of joy.

Wonder what those horses and ponies thought of all the hounds???

More loving joy later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB and at Belwade Farm (my idea of heaven);)

USA TODAY – Basset Hound gets bogus diploma from online academy;)

August 19th, 2014 - 9:09 am KY Time

More teaching humans who is boss later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB of higher learning…)

You are not the boss of me!

August 18th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and not the boss of me lovers…

I came into the living room to check on Daisy Lynn and found her in the chair that I am trying to keep hound hair and stink free.


Instead of getting down she said, “you are not the boss of me!”


More trying to gain pack leadership status later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB snickering;)

Happy Sunny Day!

August 17th, 2014 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Sunny Day Lovers…Since the weather has been so nice I put up Daisy Lynn’s screen in the sun room.  Here she is laying next to her purple octopus that Cindy, Jethro, Rugs, Harriet and Oz bought her as a welcome to bassethoundtown toy.  Also, you can see her bell on the door.  When I close the sliding glass door she rings that thing like crazy.  I guess she likes her screen!


This is what she did all day.


In and out, in and out, over and over.

Happy Sunny Day!

More loving the little things/screens, in life later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB ringing rainbow bells;)
