Hero blood hound tracks down arsonist near Stinking Creek, KY…

April 3rd, 2015 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and DID YOU EVER THINK YOU WOULD READ THAT HEADLINE, lovers…Yes!

Here we have Magic putting his tricks to work sniffing down the criminal who set a wildfire in Knox County, KY near stinking creek.


It wasn’t slight of hand but more a matter of following the nose.

Division of Forestry personnel knew where the wildfire started, but were uncertain who started it.

While the KDF Knox County fire crew worked at the head of the fire trying to keep the fire away from homes, the K-9 unit started its investigation at the fire’s point of origin – a fence that had been cleared below the black top road.

Investigators found barbed wire rolls and a fencing tool present at the origin. Magic immediately traced the scent back down the road to a black Mazda truck parked in a shed at a nearby home.

The Kentucky State Police were notified and responded quickly.

State Trooper Sammy Faris was first on the scene, soon followed by Detective Joshua Bunch, an arson investigator for KSP. Bunch questioned several individuals in the area, including a person of interest who had driven the truck.

The driver admitted to setting the fire trying to burn out a fence row. KDF did not issue a citation for burning and allowing the fire to escape. The division did notify the driver that he will receive a bill for the cost to the state for controlling the fire.

“It was impressive that the dog took the scent from the fencing tool and followed the scent several hundred feet down the road to the person of interest’s truck and then house,” said Division Director Leah MacSwords. “The person responsible for the fire actually left the scene in a vehicle, and Magic was still able to track him.”

MacSwords said her division owes a great deal of thanks to the K-9 unit from the Bell County Forestry Camp and to Bunch and Faris from KSP.

Individuals who witness or suspect an arson fire are encouraged to call the Arson Hotline toll free at 1-800-27ARSON (1-800-272-7766).

I just googled Bell County Forestry Camp and it is inmate facility.  Magic’s primary focus is most likely tracking escaped prisoners…

The bassethoundtown road show!

April 1st, 2015 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hounds and Road Show Lovers…Back in 1970 our family bought a VW minibus with a pop up top and we traveled North and South America.  We had so much fun.

Here is Grandma and I in the back as we made our way across Death Valley.  It felt like we were in a oven.  Of course we were hamming it up.  Those were wet wash cloths that we kept on our foreheads…


So we have decided to chuck it all and find another vintage VW Bus and take our show on the road!

Here it is…


That pop up top is where I will sleep and Daisy Lynn will sleep with her Grandma…


So, let’s get this road show started!


Death Valley here we come!
