Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and not nosey neighbor lovers…

They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The Judgement of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed…IT IS SO ORDERED

Howllow Fellow Basset Hounds and so ordered lovers!


Wow!  I have been supporting my LGBT friends every step of the way.

The language of Kennedy’s opinion spoke eloquently of the most fundamental values of family, love and liberty.


It is so ordered…

It is so ordered…

In the eloquent words of Dolly Parton – “These folks deserve to be as miserable as the rest of us”!  LOL

More loving it is so ordered later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB and the real rainbow!)


Basset Hound Rescue of Ontario knows howl to throw a party!

June 25th, 2015 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo fellow basset hound and Basset Bustle Extravaganza Lovers…This is howl I would like to spend every weekend.  The amount of joy watching herds of hounds is just endless…

“The 2015 BHRO Basset Bustle Extravaganza was a huge success!

“Hundreds of basset hounds and their people from across Canada and the U.S. (and even England this year!) descended upon the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA off-leash dog park on May 23 to help us celebrate dedication and love of bassets and show support for Basset Hound Rescue of Ontario.

We can’t wait for next year!”


More loving 100s of hounds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB Bustling Away…)

Bumper Alessandro February 18, 2002 – June 22, 2015

June 22nd, 2015 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Bumper Lovers – As many of the resident know, I was in love with Bumper.  Today his Mommy Judy and his Daddy Rick made the decision to help him over the rainbow bridge.


Bumper was 13 1/2 years old and lived a fantastically blessed life with his family.  Bumper is survived by his Mom Judy, his Dad Rick, and his sister Abby who is also 13 1/2 years old.

Judy and Abby Alessandro

Bumper’s was a gentle saint with a huge soul that will be missed tremendously by his family, his friends of bassethoundtown, and by his massive following on facebook.

Bumper was one of the greats that will leave a lasting legacy for his bounty of unconditional love.


Bumper’s health declined over the past several weeks and today he told his family it was time.


Please keep Judy, Rick and Abby in your thoughts and prayers as they grieve the passing of their precious Bumper…

Judy and her baby boy Bumper…

Move loving and remembering Bumper later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB showing Bumper around…)

Happy Father’s Day and welcome to summer!

June 21st, 2015 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound, Father’s Day, and summer lovers.  Wow!  This is an interesting day for sure.  It’s the longest day of the year, the first day of summer and Father’s Day!

This is an oldie but a goodie.  I designed this for Grandpaw in 2006.  I decided to add my header to it.  As the internet has grown so have people who use images.  I have no problem with that in most cases.  I do want folks to know where it comes from…


From left to right…

Natalie Rudert, Emma Rudert, Lily Rudert, Chaps Rudert, Chloe Rudert, Colby Chaps Mead and Emma’s Mom – Rose and Lollipops Nance.

Grandpaw adored this card and kept it on the mantle for years.  I have it now in my office.

Not be left out!


Our very own Daisy Lynn Rudert…

More loving wishing all the Father residents a very happy and long day!  Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with Grandpaw having a great rainbow day…)

I am going to try and do this every year!

June 20th, 2015 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and every year lovers…Since Daisy Lynn and I have our birthdays about one month a part I am going to share a birthday picture with her.  This is when our daisy garden is in full bloom and showcases our natural beauty!  LOL


We picked the perfect spot for the garden because the Daisies just flourish!


What a pretty picture of perfection…


So lovely – I am pretty sure she loves me.  I did not have to pull off any peddles to figure that one out!

More loving our yearly pictures later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB laying in fields of daises…)

Pizza, Parrots, and Puddles…

June 17th, 2015 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and P lovers…hehehe

Today fellow bassethoundtown resident Judy took me out for a Pizza birthday lunch.  It was so much fun.  Then we went back to her phenomenal home and I loved on her African Grey Parrot Buddy! When I found out he did not have a middle name I gave him one.

Meet Buddy Lynn…I kinda love himz…


OK – where is the Puddle? 

I had to laugh, I was sitting on the ground giving Abby a belly rub and turned around to find Bumper and my first thought was that he looked just like a Puddle!

A Puddle of love…


Well, this is my boyfriend!

More loving the P things in life later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, and (Chaps and Emma ATB having rainbow Pizza)

Happy Birthday to me!

CCGM copy

It sure made my day!

I also thought I should report that Colby Chaps has been diagnosed with a bout of pneumonia.  Please let’s all send our well wishes to my Grandhound and hope that he get better real soon.  Poor guy.  It just breaks my heart.

More loving good vibes and wishes later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB eating birthday cake;)

Happy Flag Day from your Mayor…Daisy Lynn Rudert!

June 14th, 2015 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Flag Day Lovers!  Our Flag is a vision of beauty and we cherish it in bassethoundtown.  Red, White, and Blue with a bit of basset mixed in!

I was trying to get a good picture of our Mayor with my Flag and I hung it on my wrought iron gates leading into my sun room as I went and got a treat.  When I came back I saw this beautiful image. It really touched me.  That was the sunset coming in the back window.

I designed these gates when I got Chaps and Emma.


Try as I may, treats in hand I was able to capture another shot!


It was not the intended shot but boy did it turn out just glorious.

Happy Flag Day fellow residents…

More loving the unintended later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB flying the rainbow flag of love…)

PS – a picture of the gates tonight…The Mayor is posing for your viewing pleasure!
