Mayor Daisy Lynn would probably do well being a beach hound.  I think our pack would be a great beach pack.  I need to get to the beach…

Facebook find of the WINTER!!!

January 26th, 2015 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Facebook find lovers.

This is one of my friends taking a sunset stroll on Clam Beach in McKinleyville, CA this past Friday…

Rupert and Cowboy are Kacy Green’s lucky hounds!

I told her she should blow this pic up to poster size!


Wow, to be a West Coast Calie Hound this very cold winter would be heaven…

Sorry East Coast – don’t mean to rub it in! Hope you have enough hounds to keep warm for the next couple of days!

More loving sunset walks with loved ones later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma strolling on rainbow beaches ATB;)

Judge Judy participates in basset hound rescue! :)

January 25th, 2015 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Judge Judy Lovers…I am a huge fan of Judge Judy.  She is so smart and no nonsense.  She also seems to love the cases that involve animals.  Judge Judy regularly hears cases that involve pit bulls and the extreme damage they do to other dogs and humans. She points out valuable information about the breed and the dangers that pit bulls present in our communities.  The first part of this video is about another pit bull case.  It lasts 10 minutes and 8 seconds.

If you want to skip it and go right to the basset hound rescue case please go to the 10 minute 8 second mark.

This is 4 year old Daisy who the rescue case is about.

Judge Judy Daisy

Wow, what a show!  I was so glad that I caught it when it aired a few weeks ago and was waiting for it to come online so I could share it with the bassethoundtown residents.

More loving Judge Judy later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB thinking that this Daisy is very cute and lucky to have a new family…)

PS – 3 weeks into 2015 and there have already been 3 human fatalities by pit bull dogs.

January 20th, 2015 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Facebook find of the day lovers…I was over on facebook sniffing around today and ran across this pack of serious houndage!

Howl much fun would it be to see this pack a comin’ round the bend?  I am not sure where they are from but I know where they are going…(probably after a treat;)

Dogton Abbey;) Daisy Lynn and I love Isis – Downton Abbey’s yellow lab!!!

January 18th, 2015 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and our favorite part of Downton Abbey Lovers…

Isis – the yellow lab…


Daisy Lynn and I were looking forward to tonight’s episode so we decided to have a spot of tea in Isis’ honor!


As you can see we both have on our finery…


Daisy Lynn is wearing a heavily encrusted gown hand sewn with iridescent sequins and pearl like embellishments.  The draping accents her beautiful frame.


“Mama, what time does Dogton Abbey come on?”


“I heard that ladies have their paw kissed by handsome boy hounds!”


Gotta love high tea with a high hound!


For more about the Unsung Heroes of Downton Abbey: Isis –


It will take you to the Masterpiece PBS site…for more about Isis!!!

More loving high tea with hounds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB drinking some Earl Grey;)

2 years ago tonight! Whew…time files too fast

January 16th, 2015 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and 2 years ago tonight lovers…I just cannot believe that Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert has been in our hearts now for 2 years.  I think every emotion plus some I have never heard of happened that day and night.

First belly rub from Mama…


First belly rub from Grandma…


Wonder howl many she has had in 2 years?  My guess would be 365×2=730×10 belly rubs a day (on average) = 7,300 belly rubs!!!

Wow!  That is amazing…

Thank you residents for following our stories – we adore sharing them…

More belly rubs later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB feeling the love…;)


2 Little Heaters…

January 14th, 2015 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and 2 Little Heaters Lovers…

Here are my 2 Little Heaters…


Thank goodness I have both tonight!  My furnace died!

I bought the heater on the left a few years ago just in case of emergencies such as this.  I bought the little heater on the right 2 years ago tonight.  Well, actually I just bought her airline ticket and flight kennel!

Who knew she would come in so handy;)

We read the directions together…



Daisy Lynn decided that we did not need to keep them…


So, I am sporting my yellow CHAPS hoodie for this selfie.  Yes, I have a disco ball in my bathroom!  Also, please notice the IPhone cover my sister bought me for Christmas…


More loving 2 little heaters later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps said I have 3 counting the jacket, and Emma ATB;)


Cuddle Time…

January 13th, 2015 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Cuddle Time Lovers…

On a cold day like this one all you want to do is cuddle up with a friend!


Enzo is so cute.  Romeo was not havin’ any of it.  He like the cool spot in front of the window…in the worry bed.  See the snake toy?  Daisy Lynn tired to cheer him up with one of her fav toys.


More loving cousins later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB having their own cuddle time;)
