Playtime in bassethoundtown!

July 30th, 2015 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Playtime lovers!  A few days ago Daisy Lynn had a play date with some fellow residents, Nosey and Sam the Dog Hall Newbold!

As we were waiting outside my friend – Edwardo the salamander came out to visit!

He just looks like an Edwardo to me.  This is the first year that I have seen him and his family.  I hope they are eating the stink bugs that were showing up and now seem to be gone.  That would be too good to be true!


Daisy Lynn greeted her fellow residents with glee!


“Come on, let’s play!”


But that was short lived because Daisy Lynn told them “I have special treats inside!  hehehe”

“Off we go then…”


And a good time was had by all.

Even Edwardo!

More loving friends later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with some rainbow salamanders…)

Happy Sunny Day Mornin’ to the residents!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Sunny Day Morin’ Lovers!  What a way to start the day!

“Get up Mommy, can’t you hear me?”


“I am sitting here at my door very patiently waiting….”


“I think I saw my friend, the chipmunk!” 


“Now I am ringing my bell louder! Hurry!”

OK, Mommy is up and Adam.  The Mayor rings her bell and Mommy hops to attention!

More loving the life of a Mayor later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB ringing their bells for Mommy…)

Covington, KY River Walk is AMAZING!

July 22nd, 2015 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and River Walk Lovers…We have the coolest River Walk about 10 minutes from bassethoundtown headquarters.  It is so quaint and shady.  Today the Reds had a double header!  It was fun because you could hear everyone screaming and cheering!


This walk is nice in the heat of the summer because for the most part it is covered in shade.  We always make sure to test the pavement with the back of our hands to see if it is too hot for paw pads.  We have learned that paver stones seems to get hotter than pavement.


Grandma took this picture as well.  WOW!  This is the definition of Cincinnati, the Queen City!  Just after this pic someone got a home run and the crowd went wild!

More loving home runs in bassethoundtown later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB hitting it over the rainbow!)

Heart bow bow;)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and cute butt lovers!  I wanted to share these pictures of our late Mayor!

Look at his heart bow bow!  hehehe




The more things change the more they stay the same…

Never get tired of the heart!

More loving my back porch later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with rainbow rears;)

We are dreaming of Somerset Cream and packs of walking bassets!

July 18th, 2015 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Somerset Cream Lovers…Yum…I have never had it but I am dreaming of it in my ring of fire.  Today will feel like 103 degrees…

Most of the residents know howl much I love The Basset Hound Walkers across the pond.  On July the 12th they took another walk.  This YouTube is 10 minutes long and I enjoyed every delicious minute.  Especially the end when they stopped for Somerset Cream.  OMD!

The power came back just in time for the “Ring of Fire”!

July 17th, 2015 - 3:03 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Ring of Fire, WTHeck Lovers?  This morning on the Today Show Al Roker had up a big map with something he was calling the ring of fire!  Bassethoundtown was at the top.  I guess it is some kind of weather phenomena which means it is going to be darn HOT!  Bassethoundtown will “feel like” 100 degrees the next several days.  It is a good thing our power came back on!

All paws crossed it stays on.

More loving the video Ring of  Fire – not the weather phenomena…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB attending a rainbow BBQ)

Bassethoundtown has been without power going on 15 hours:(

July 15th, 2015 - 10:10 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and without power haters…OMD – what a hassle!  Our power is not expected back on until 10pm tonight.  We are really over it!

The day before we had to rush to our safe spot in the basement because of a tornado warning! We got the all clear and were not in that path of that storm.


But the next day we had straight line winds and torrential downpours that cut off our power.

I bought 50 pounds of ice last night and saw this…


I guess they were fixing someone else…:(  Don’t they know I have the Mayor to worry about?  Her comfort is paramount!

Here she is watching me haul in the ice!


Now Grandma and I are at the library charging up our devices for the long hot day ahead.  What a bummer…but we will survive!


When we leave here it is off to buy more ice –

More loving ice later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB with rainbow power!)

Happy Birthday to our 3 year old Mayor!

July 12th, 2015 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Happy Birthday Lovers…Yes, can you even believe it?  Mayor Daisy Lynn is 3 years old.


We found the perfect setting for her birthday photo shoot…


I made a special crock pot dinner with chicken for all of us!

Party til ya flat basset!  LOL…


Grandma captured the money shot…Just love it…

More loving many more birthdays later…Cat, Birthday Mayor, (Chaps and Emma ATB baking a rainbow cake…)

PS – out-take…


Mac the lace ear basset hound sings with Pavorotti!

July 10th, 2015 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and opera lovers…Oh the plaintive wails of opera singers.

The basset is a natural born diva that commands the audience to absorb every note.

Ahhhhhhhh….music to my long ears…

More loving divas (what is male term for that?) later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with all the greats howling, wailing, and providing joy…)

PS – Figaro, Figaro, Figaro


Facebook find of the day!

July 9th, 2015 - 4:04 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Facebook find of the day lovers.  I have A LOT of  “friends” on facebook and the pictures of basset hounds are E N D L E S S…never ending…they go on for hours.  Anyway…I try to pick and choose some for the residents to view that I think are the best!  hehehe


What in the world?  It looks like someone laid a sleeping pup on top of a glass top table and then but a black sheet over himz to create this effect?

I love it.

More scouring facebook for fun finds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB laying on rainbow sheets…)
