Psycho Black Friday and Leftovers!…

November 28th, 2014 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Leftovers Lovers…Did you venture out for Black Friday?  Some folks go psycho for the deals!  Whew…not us.  We never go out on Black Friday.  It is scary!

Instead I made bassethoundtown hot brown casserole!  OMDog…it was so good.  I hope I don’t go on and on too much about my recipe but I want to make sure I remember it for the future.

My sister gave us lots of leftovers!

I took the dinner rolls and crumbled them into a casserole dish.  I melted butter and poured it over the rolls.  Then I baked them until golden brown.

In a large skillet I added butter, cream and all of the cheese from the platter my sister gave me.  There were about 6 different cheeses and lots of it.  I then added all of the left over chopped white meat turkey, onions, peppers, jalapenos, several scoops of hot salsa, a splash of wine, and a bag of frozen peas.  I simmered that for about an hour then I poured the mixture all over the crumbled rolls. I topped it with prosciutto wrapped mozzarella circles on top of heirloom tomato slices stuffed with basil and more mozzarella.  Then I sprinkled bacon crumbles over the top of the whole thing…OMDog!


I baked it for about an hour….


For dessert we had a hunk of corn bread topped with my sister’s home made cranberry sauce and Chantilly cream made by my brother in law.  I forgot to take a picture of that.  I was too excited!

Daisy Lynn got a few piece of white turkey sprinkled with bacon bits.

She then needed a turkey nap!


I turned on TMC and watched Psycho!

More loving Black Friday later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB full of Chantilly Cream!)

Did we all have fun on our Thanksgiving Day – 2014? YES!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Thanksgiving Day Lovers…Did we all have fun?  We sure did!  Grandma and I went over to Romeo and Enzo’s home and had a delicious brunch.  It is about 7:30 and I am still full.

Before we left, Daisy Lynn and I watched the Macy’s Parade!


What is your favorite dish?  Mine is a new favorite!  My sister’s turkey, brie, and homemade cranberry Quesadillas!  OMDog!!!

More loving dreaming of leftovers later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB, thankful for giving…)

I was terrified today when Mayor Daisy Lynn wandered off! ALL IS WELL NOW!

November 24th, 2014 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and all’s well that ends well lovers…Whew…Thank Dog Daisy Lynn is safe!  What happened was that we had a huge wind storm today.  It was a freak day with 50 mile an hour winds.

Every morning before I open Daisy Lynn’s porch gate I make sure the back yard is secure.  I view the fence line and main gate.  You never know what could happen during the night.  It was all good so I let her go down to the bottom level.  It was windy and 63 degrees but I did not realize the force of the wind.  The main gate was shut and locked.

During the course of Daisy Lynn being out the wind blew a garbage can and hit the gate and it popped open.  It was locked in two spots.  I did not hear it.

I was sitting at my computer and my heart started to race and I felt some panic.  It was really strange.  I could not figure out my anxiety???

So, I got up and checked on Daisy Lynn and our back gate was wide open.  All the blood rushed from head and I felt faint.  I was sick and terrified.  I ran out the gate area and my eyes were bugging out.  I was getting ready to scream her name and I spotted her on the porch of our neighbor.  They have 2 girls that Daisy Lynn goes crazy for.  Thank Dog she wanted to visit them.  I called her and she rushed to me.  I did not trust her to follow me back to our yard so I picked her up under her arm pits.  She is so long that her back legs were dragging.  As I put her in the back yard she bolted again and ran back to the neighbor’s porch.  I was faint with fear.  At this point I started making a huge fuss that “Grandma is here, Grandma is here, look it’s Grandma,” and she came running…I thought I would collapse.

Safe and sound.  I was so frantic.  The cars race down our street so fast.

It only takes a second.

One second we are trying on her new hat that Marsie (Mom to Nosey and Sam) gave her yesterday…


Complete with her name…


And the next second I am freaking out…

Thank you so much Marsie.  We love our new Trapper Hat!  You are the best!

More loving all’s good that ends good later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma making sure that Mommy knew to check on Daisy Lynn…)

Bassethoundtown called to action!

November 22nd, 2014 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and action lovers…Early this evening my door bell rang and it was our local Animal Control Office!!!  My heart jumped as she asked me if I knew if the Alessandro hound might be missing and at large.  ABBY???  Don’t worry Abby is fine, it was not her but she fit the “profile”.

Whew…But at that time we did not know.  I urgently called Abby’s Mommy, Judy.  She was a few towns away.  The ACO told me that the Police had been over to her home and only saw Bumper!  I told Judy I would rush over…I know how to get in in case of emergency.  Sure came in handy tonight!

I saw Bumper but not Abby!!!


She almost gave me a heart attack.  She was laying in a dark hallway…




I tucked them back in and made the rounds around bassethoundtown.  All hounds matching the description were accounted for.

If I had to guess it would be a hound that lives a few streets over.  He tends to get out a fair amount. I drove by the home and he was in the front yard which has an electric fence.  I heard him howling before I actually say himz.

I am still working the case.  I thought it was cool that the ACO came over to bassethoundtown and the Police had gone to Judy’s home.  Pretty cool to live in such a small and caring town.

Daisy Lynn was NOT waiting patiently!


More doing our part later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB guiding Mommy…)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Red Trapper Hound Hat from Target Lovers…Have the residents heard about this?  All the basset Moms and Dads are going crazy on facebook trying to snag this hat! 

Here is Miss Nosey in her new hat.  Her Mommy and bassethoundtown resident, Marsie found one for her and Sam the Dog!


I told Daisy Lynn she could wear my Trapper hat until Target delivered hers.


So pretty and lady like!

More waiting for the delivery person later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB loving the red hat frenzy!)

Pondering Polar Pup Paw Pads…

November 13th, 2014 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Polar Pup Paw Pad Lovers…OMDog!!!

Tomorrow is going to be a frozen 14 degrees.



I guess our walking days are over for way too long.  What a bummer!

Day in the life of Jane, the 11 year old basset hound – Youtube finds of the day!

November 9th, 2014 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Jane Lovers. I thought I would share these little clips of Jane.  I can’t figure out where they are from by the language.

First Jane takes a walk.  I adore her stroller at the end.  What a great idea for an aging hound!

Then this video reminds me of my precious Lily.  Grandma will think so too.  Lily was relentless about making sure your hand was always on her body.  Grandma even wanted to invent a petting machine that she could stand in but we all know it would not be the same!  hehehehe

More loving Sunday Morning Youtubes later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB with Lily getting petted by Grandpa!)

Daisy Lynn Loves Teaching Childern about Dog Safety and Reading the Lily Book!

November 6th, 2014 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Fun Day Lovers…Today, our very own Mayor of Bassethoundtown was on a mission to continue her dog safety lessons to children while reading the Lily Book!  Wow, it seems like yesterday that Chaps and I started our quest to educate and inspire area kids!  It was over 10 years ago.  Now it’s the new Mayor’s turn and she is doing such a great job!

We are thinking that this little girl had a grilled cheese for lunch!


The kids loved the Lily Book!  That helps to weave dog safety though out the tail of love!


Daisy Lynn had such a great time.  She is really a natural educator and loves kids!


Right now she is all tuckered out and tucked in.

All in a day’s work!


More dreaming of keeping kids safe around dogs later…not to mention a tail of love…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB loving the Lily Book!)
