This lost K9 officer was found – Karson!

February 28th, 2015 - 3:03 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and finding a lost loved one lovers…Karson is a Wilmington Ohio K9 officer that got out of his boarding facility over the Christmas holidays.  Not sure howl he got out but it is what it is.  Our entire area was on the outlook for the officer for over 60 days.

Massive search parties were in process for the entire time.  We never gave up.


It was just so touching to see him reunited with his partner.

I thought the residents would enjoy this video of his welcome home party.  Wilmington is in OH about an hour and half from here.

Karson the Wilmington K9 officer gets hero’s homecoming

Karson has about 30K followers on facebook mostly because we were tracking his every move. There were numerous sightings over the 60 day period.  Several days the temps dipped to -15.  That officer must be some hearty stock.

I sure hope they keep up with his career with many more facebook updates.

Here is the facebook page…if you want to like it…

I would suggest not using that boarding facility in the future.  I can watch him if they want!  I would not let him out of my sight!!!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Morning Routine Lovers…Our Young Mayor is such a creature of habit.  She adores her morning routine…Well, maybe not the brushing her teeth part!

This is what she does after she eats…every morning…


This is her perch – where she surveys her domain…name…!

The sun was shining but the temps were -4 this morning…

What did we hear?  Spring is only 20 some odd days away???

More looking forward to the countdown later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB saying it will be in like a lion…)


Major snow day in bassethoundtown…

February 21st, 2015 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Snow Day Lovers…Today we were snowed in with about 10” over the past 2 days mixed with a little ice to make it extra interesting;)


We hunkered down and you do what you must…

Do a test run of marinating bing cherries in Grey Goose Vodka.


That is the recipe.  Buy a bag of frozen bing cherries with nothing but cherries, no sugar, no syrups.  This is a tiny little glass smaller than a shot glass.  I am doing a test run;) for a small luncheon I am having next week.

Then we do as you do…take a nap!


Life is a bowl of vodka cherries…

More loving snow days later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB having cherry cobbler…)
