Edwardo, Easter and Eggs – 2016

March 28th, 2016 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and Easter 2016 Lovers…Do you guys remember Edwardo?  Our fun and silly salamander?  Well, this guy looks a little to little to be Edwardo but we think it is his son or grand daughter???


I had just finished brushing Daisy Lynn’s teeth and I was petting her and telling her about our schedule for Easter day and little Edwardo jumped up on that sill and was so cute looking right at us!  Just darling.  Then baby just laid on her/his stoop like Daisy Lynn lays on her.  What an Easter joy…

First off we caught a few rays on the back porch…

Just look at those little sweet neck bags.  They make me melt!


Then we proceeded to Ault Park in Cincinnati to view the Cherry Blossom trees.  We decided that we are going to do this every Easter.  What a great tradition.  Ault Park has acres of Cherry Trees. It really is an amazing experience.


What a great picture and a great day.

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and waiting for breakfast lovers…I was busy in the kitchen this morning getting the Mayor’s bowl ready.  I turned around and saw this!


It was a moment frozen in time only because I had my phone at my side!  Thank DOG!


Gosh this girl makes mornings so bright.  She gets out of bed with her tail wagging and a bright and shiny smile in her eyes.

Life is good…

Irish Blessing For Bassets…

March 17th, 2016 - 10:10 am KY Time

Irish Blessing for the bassets of bassethoundtown!

March 17th, 2011 – 12:12 pm KY Time
I was searching for something on my blog and came across this posting from 5 years ago.  I am so glad I found it again and wanted to share it with the Irish residents (we are all Irish today).


May your Master love you dearly,
And keep you in his care.
May your days be filled with freedom,
To hunt the brush for hare.
When the hunt is over,
And your Master calls you in,
May you shower him with kisses,
And slobber on his chin!

For hounds who live with city folk,
May your need to track a scent be fulfilled
With toys and treats and daily jaunts
To parks and trails where nature flaunts
The wild adventure you long to share
With hounds and humans everywhere.

So while you bless the human race
With your kind and gentle love and grace
May you be blessed with many days
Of soaking up the sunshine rays
And many nights of peaceful sleep
Safely next to your Master’s keep.

Our lovely Emma from days gone by…

More loving blessings later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB laying in a rainbow 4 leaf clover field…)

I Filmed My Basset Hound Carpooling With Me To And From Work Everyday For A Month

March 12th, 2016 - 3:03 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and going to work with a hound lovers.  I had to share this cute video I found on the world wide web.  It made me smile and I am sure you will too!

This is what makes this more amazing than it already is.  The woman driving, who made the film also wrote and sang the song.  She is so talented and creative.  The song is amazing!!!


“Elliott is a basset hound and we have been living together for four years now. Last September I started taking him to work with me so that he wouldn’t spend so many hours alone at home.

Like all basset hounds Elliott loves his humans and everything else for that matter. He is super curious about everything and wants to participate in whatever you may be doing no matter how “humany” it may be.

During our first car rides together I noticed he was being very serious about the road ahead. He started sitting in the front next to me paying attention to the road as if he was driving himself.

I thought it was very funny so I started filming our rides to and from work so that I could do an edit on that later on.

While viewing the footage I quickly noticed that at times we would synchronise our movements especially on stop signs and such and started working on an edited version of these moments. So much funny material was left out of it though so eventually, I ended up with this little video of our various car adventures!”

Any residents near White Sulpher Springs Montana? If so, this is your watering hole;)

March 9th, 2016 - 8:08 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and watering hole lovers…This couple started a brewery and named it after their 2 basset hounds Stanley and Leroy…


Kristen Inbody, kinbody@greatfallstribune.com

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, MONTANA – When it came time to launch their brewery, Chris and Barry Hedrich were surprised to find one of the key challenges was getting goggles on a basset hound.

Founders of the new 2 Basset Brewery, the Hedrichs have named their venture in homage to their basset hounds Stanley and Leroy. They incorporated the dogs into beer names such as the soon-to-debut Stanley Stout.

They also staged a photo for each beer, which was easy enough except for Breaking Basset, a farmhouse ale with a television show pub. The photo that goes with it shows brewing equipment and goggles-wearing Walter White-impersonating hound.


“One of the appeals is people can visit. That’s one thing we’ve always liked about brew pubs, and they close at a descent hour,” Barry said. The town bars, open beyond the brewery’s 8 p.m. closing, have or are working on having 2 Basset beer on tap.

White Sulphur Springs hits above its weight when it comes to terrific restaurants. 2 Basset has popcorn only, with the option for patrons to order in or bring along supper.

“We had people ask if we’re going to serve food, but we have great restaurants here,” he said. “My wife and I always wanted to do a business. We couldn’t settle on something, until I said, what about a brewery, something that’s beneficial to the community.”


Well, that sounds like my kind of place.  If I am ever in Montana I will be looking up Stanley and Leroy for sure!!!

More loving doing what you love later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB drinking rainbow ale…)



Howl much further until we reach Spring?

March 7th, 2016 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and looking for Spring Lovers!  Well, it’s here this week in bassethoundtown with temps reaching 70 degrees!  WOW!!!

I saw this picture and thought it looked liked these hounds are looking for spring!


Of course I found this on Facebook!  LOL – Hope these hounds get to spring as soon as my hound gets to spring!

Welcome bassethoundtown residents to March!

March 1st, 2016 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and March Lovers!  I think this is so exciting.  The first day of March means we are over the brunt of winter in Basset Hound Town and that is wonderful for our low to ground hounds!  And another wonderful thing!  With the help of my assistant/Mayor I got Basset Hound Town taxes prepped and in the mail to my CPA.



It only took off and on all of February to plow through the data but with the help of a good and loyal town member we finally put our readers down and celebrated with a frozen margarita!  It is now a tradition in Basset Hound Town to have Tequila Tax day and get it all done by March the 1st!


Now it is time to work on the first ever Lily Book Tour! 

More loving March the 1st and lambs later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB drinking frozen rainbow margaritas!)
