The Persistence of Memory or the Persistence of Going Flat Basset?

January 26th, 2016 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Dali/Doggi Lovers…

You know me…I  had to share!

Here we have The Persistence of Memory by Salvadore Dali…


“It epitomizes Dalí’s theory of “softness” and “hardness”, which was central to his thinking at the time. “The soft watches are an unconscious symbol of the relativity of space and time, a Surrealist meditation on the collapse of our notions of a fixed cosmic order”.  Huh???

I like this one better…

I named it the Persistence of Going Flat Basset!


OMDog – it is so cute…

We all know our bassets are very persistent when they go FLAT BASSET!


Continuing to exist or endure over a prolonged period of time…PERSISTENCE!

More loving persistence later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB going flat on the rainbow…)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Warm Rump Roast Lovers…

Today we were supposed to get the snow fall of the century in bassethoundtown and I counted about 3 flakes!  I was one of them for going to the grocery store twice!  LOL

Daisy Lynn is thrilled it passed us by!


BUTT a fire is always nice…


One must warm their rump roast come snow or no snow!


“Now where are all those treats you got today Mommy?”

More loving warm rump roasts later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB where the snow is rainbow…)


The Mayor goes into her holistic vet for a well baby visit! Can you say Stylin’ and Profilin’?

January 19th, 2016 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and Stylin’ and Profilin’ Lovers!!!  Today Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert went to her holistic vet, Dr. Ron Leick.  He checked out her bones and made a few adjustments.  She is doing great and has not missed a well baby visit since she became our Mayor.

But come on…who is cuter than Daisy Lynn going to her appointment?


This is one of the new snoods that I will be adding into our collection soon.  I call it the Bassethoundtown Clan Tartan Snood!


It was absolutely freezing today and that snood felt really good!  You can almost hear the highland bag pipes!


It is a thin weight flannel cotton that keeps ears off of the frozen highlands and icy moors…


Daisy Lynn is wearing the world famous bassethoundtown heart coat that Grandma bought Lily back in 1995.  Chaps also sported this coat and now it is the new Mayor’s turn…ADORABLE with this snood for sure!


This is Daisy Lynn getting up on the examination stool.  She adores Dr. Leick and he feels the same way about herz.  He was very impressed with her snappy outfit.

We will be back for our next well baby visit in May – no winter attire required!

More lovin’ stylin’ and profilin’ later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB listening to the rainbow bag pipes…)

What a lovely Fantastic Friday Facebook Find…

January 15th, 2016 - 9:09 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and something out of another thing lovers.

By another thing I mean an oak log…


Howl can this chunk of wood be transformed into a glorious hound dog?

Well, first off talent and a chain saw are required!


A man named Andy Burgess who lives in England did this for a woman on facebook.

She commissioned Andy for a gift for her husband!


Isn’t it amazing?


I just love it!


I had to share with the residents…

More loving Fantastic Friday Facebook Finds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB sitting on an oak log…)

So cute and soooooo cold!

January 11th, 2016 - 4:04 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and sooooo cute lovers…I was on facebook last night and saw this picture that I had to share.  A woman was telling the group (I think it was the Daily Drool facebook page), that her hound went out to potty and had trouble.  His back legs started to cripple from the cold and snow.  So she brought him in and put socks on his feet and his ears!


Can you believe howl cute the sock ear warmers are?  Now they most likely won’t stay in place like a warm snood will but it sure served the purpose for this cold soul.

Today the temperature is dropping in Bassethoundtown and I have been putting on this design of snood for Mayor Daisy Lynn.  It is warm and washable!

Please click the link and read up on it~



More loving warm and dry ears later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB loving the attention to detail designed into this snood!)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Annie Home from Surgery Lovers…

Our very own Annie did so good today.  She was able to go home early so Judy and I took the basset hound haulin’ vehicle out to her vet to collect herz…


We tucked her into the Element.  I had Chaps and Emma’s old ramp and she went right up it.


Here she is “chinin’ in”.  This is what Chaps always did.  He would sit right there and lay himz chin on the arm rest…He would do it for hours if we were on a trip…


We got her home safe and sound.

Judy was so sweet and sent me home with a healthy serving of hamburger soup…


And her homemade bread…For Grandma and I!


OMDog…it was amazing…Thank you Judy – dinner was fantastic…

More loving that Abby did so well…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB making sure the hot bread is buttered;)


Annie Alessandro would like some good vibes tomorrow for her spay surgery!

January 6th, 2016 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howlow Fellow Basset Hound and good vibes lovers…I would like to request that the residents send some good vibes to Annie and her family, Judy and Rick.  She is getting spayed tomorrow 1-7-16.  Just keep her in your thoughts.


Anytime we have to drop off our hounds to the doctor for surgery is very heart wrenching.

Of course we have to do it.

Annie is 6 months old and she will get her spay prior to her first heat that will basically guarantee her never to get breast cancer.


I adore Annie and want to thank you for your good vibes and prayers!  I am having lunch with Judy tomorrow so we can wait by the phone!

I will update everyone when we get the call that she is OK and resting comfortably.

More loving good vibes later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (who went through it at the same age), Chaps and Emma ATB knowing she will be just fine…

Happy Sweet 2016 Year!

January 1st, 2016 - 3:03 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Sweet 16 lovers!!!  This is going to be a great year full of positive thinking and lots of accomplishments!  I think and old Chinese Proverb is in order…

“The person who says it cannot be done, should not interrupt the person doing it”! 

We had a rip roaring time in bassethoundtown last night ringing in the new year!

Romeo and Enzo the party animals were ready for sweet 16…

“Aunt Cat, can we stay up til midnight?”


“Hurry Daisy Lynn, the ball is going to drop!”


“I will be right in…”


“I have to howl to all the dogs in the neighborhood to wake up and start howling for 2016!”


I have said it before and I will say it again..
Howl do you know you had a great time at the New Years Eve Party???
