Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and I Love You Lovers…Wow!  I really want to teach Daisy Lynn to talk.  Grandma and I give her lessons everyday!

What a smart hound!  I love Joey as well!  I have always liked the name Joey for a boy.  I think it is so cute!

More loving Joey later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB talking;)

I guess Alaskan Basset Hounds are Heartier;)?

Howllo Fellow Basset and Hearty Alaskan Hound Lovers…Well, I am sure it is only normal that  your climate would have an impact on your heartiness or maybe it is just in a hound’s nature!  It sure looks like this is one adventurous snow loving hound!

Get Out: Manitoba Cabin

By Brett Shepard 7:11 PM January 8, 2015
ANCHORAGE – Alaska is a huge state and it can be difficult to explore a lot of it with our limited road system. However, there are lots of cabins around the state that can make a trip into the backcountry easier and more comfortable.This past weekend I traveled south with my basset hound Einstein and photographer Andy to the Kenai Peninsula in search of something uniquely Alaskan.


We pulled off the Seward Highway near Summit Lake, geared up and snowshoed into the woods. Our destination: Manitoba cabin. It’s a renovated miners cabin built in 1936 that has been open to the public for about 2 years now.


The cabin serves as a camp for a lot of outdoor activities. It sits at the base of Manitoba Mountain, which is a popular spot in the winter for backcountry skiers.


“Nice easy slopes. Good for people that aren’t looking to kill it, just looking to get out and have a good time,”

“Magical. One-hundred percent magical,” when we got out here the other day I was just like, ‘Man, this is why I live in Alaska.’ It’s places like this that make this special.”


Whether it’s you, a basset hound and a sled, or a big group, it’s sure to be quite the adventure.


Here is the link to the story where they show a video.  I took the liberty of clipping the pictures I used for the purpose of showcasing Einstein.  I love that last picture, ears flyin’!

He sure seems to have a heck of a time with his human.


Thanks for sharing Einstein – Good Boy!

More loving hearty hounds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (the opposite of hearty), (Chaps and Emma ATB sled riding on rainbows…)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and JUST DO IT LOVERS!!!

Are we ready to get in shape after the Howl Low Days?


Howl cute is that sweat band?

More feeling like this hound looks later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB where there are no treadmills!)

It is totally scary cold…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and keeping warm lovers…The Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert wants all of the resident hounds to keep safe and warm.


Most of our town (which includes the entire USA) is in critically cold conditions.  So cold.

We must protect the paws of our loved ones…


And the those precious long ears…


Just as an extra precaution I am going to close the dog door tonight.  I don’t want Daisy Lynn going outside without me knowing it.


I always gate off the steps and lock the bottom gate but I don’t even want her on the back porch.  They say it is going to be -10 wind chill tonight.  That would probably be too cold to even go!

It is totally scary cold – and tomorrow is going to be worse…

More loving staying safe later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB basking in perfect hound weather…)



Millville NJ Firefighters rescue stuck basset as first call of 2015!

Millville firefighters rescue stuck basset hound as first call in 2015


MILLVILLE — It was barely 2015 when the Millville Fire Department got a call about an 8-year-old basset hound getting her head stuck in a porch railing on New Year’s Day.

It was the department’s first call of the new year.

Firefighters were dispatched to East Main Street on Jan. 1 around 1:40 a.m., according to Capt. John Wettstein.

There they found a basset hound named Betty with her head stuck. In order to get Betty out, the firefighters made quick work of the railing by cutting Betty out with power tools.


“Oh my God, they’re amazing,” said Judy Merlino, Betty’s owner, about the firefighters. “I gave them a huge hug. They were quick to respond.”

While Betty was stuck outside, Merlino’s son Steven tried to use dish soap to free her. When that didn’t work, he wrapped a blanket around her until authorities came to the rescue.

Ever since the rescue, according to Merlino, Betty has continued to be her “wonderful, fat, sassy” self and beg for treats.


I was so worried about his exact thing with Daisy Lynn when I brought her home.  I went to Lowes and bought some baby gates to put up and it worked.

You can see them in this picture…


Also, when I had the Ladies Room designed I made sure that the slats were way too close for there ever to be a concern.



All is well that ends well for sure…

More loving Betty and her heroic firefighters later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB loving firefighters as well…)
