Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and find of the day lovers…I was sniffing around the internet today and found this!  I had to to share..Babyinhoundhat

OMDog…Look at the hat on the baby!  I have no idea who these 2 belong to but I am loving them.  That baby is going to grow up with some cool humans and a fantastic hound…

Hope you enjoy…

The Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert learns a new trick!!!

November 22nd, 2016 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and new trick lovers!!!  Daisy Lynn is part of a small group on facebook where she is working towards earning her novice trick certificate!!!  Can you even believe it?  We are having so much fun.  I will blog more about this as we move along with tricks but this one is called “Paws Up”.

The trick is seemingly simple, a hound only needs to put paws up on a stool.


“What the heck Mommy?”


Daisy Lynn caught on IMMEDIATELY!  Even without treats.


This is really amazing.  We are having so much fun and Daisy Lynn really seems proud of herself…


More loving “Paws Up”…later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB masters at rainbow tricks…)

Rollin’ down the road we head from Midway to Frankfort, KY – #lifeisgood

November 16th, 2016 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and wrapping up this leg of the Lily Book Tour Lovers…After we left the stunning Midway, KY we headed to Frankfort, KY.  We love Frankfort and we have been their before.  We knew it would be perfect for the Lily Book Tour.

Of course, first things first…Happy Hour…


Daisy Lynn did so good on this trip.  She really got the hang of it.

After Happy Hour we went down to the pub in the lobby for dinner.  This is right outside of the pub and we also had breakfast in this exact same spot the next morning.


This seems like a decade ago, but we were anxious to watch the final presidential debate after dinner.  Well, we all know howl it ended.  No comment…

The Capital Plaza is so cool.  We just love it.  The next morning we hopscotched around a few book stores and boutiques to market the Lily Book.  Lily would be a perfect fit for Frankfort, our state capital.

Speaking of which here I am in the KY State Capital Supreme Court Chambers!  LOL – I should have left a Lily Book up on the bench!  Darn it!!!


Here are a few artistic shots for your viewing pleasure…

The place was really dead but it was very cool.  I love our state capital…

Speaking of cool…what is cooler than a winery in horse country?

Equus Run Vineyards…

Just stunning…


We really hit the jackpot finding this place.  It was beautiful and the wine was amazing…


We toasted to Lily…


What a way to wrap up this particular Lily Book Tour.  Just a real success!  As we pulled out of the winery on our way home we saw this…


Just a gateway on the pathway of life…

Bless you Lily…

More loving gateways and book tours later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB wandering around the rainbow book tour with Lily…)

Super Duper Moons!

November 14th, 2016 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Super Duper Moon Lovers…Well, last night the Super Duper of all Super Moons came out over bassethoundtown!  OMDog – it was really super for sure.  So super that I saw 2 super moons…


Isn’t that funny?  hahahaha

Let me leave you with this image.  It was posted last night on our local news facebook page…I actually find it hard to believe but maybe it’s the angle.


According to the photog – this is super moon rising over Indian Hill, OH.  Wow – I sure hope it is real because it is real cool!

More loving super moons later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB watching the rainbow moon…)

PS – still more blogging to come on the final leg of our last Lily book tour.  I will get that done hopefully before we take off on the next paw of the tour coming up soon…YES!

The show on the road continues to…Frankfort, KY – our state capital!!!

November 7th, 2016 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and show on the road lovers…Wow!  I have been really slacking off with my blog and I really cannot figure it out.  I have a ton of stuff to report and lots of fun pictures.  For some reason Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I have been really busy – but that is no excuse to slack off on what I love!

Well, to continue down the road show and book tour of life we left Midway, KY and headed to Frankfort, KY – what a splendid town and state capital…

Howl ever…I am going to do an entire blog on the cess pool of a garage where we stayed.  Did you ever notice howl nasty garages are?


This one was particularly filthy.  This is one of the many reasons everyone with a basset hound or longer eared dog needs to carry a utility snood in their car.


I felt so sorry for Daisy Lynn to have to walk through that grease pit.


At least this thick terry snood protected most of her head area and we tried to keep her face off the filthy floor.


You really notice these things when you have a mostly white hound.


So, when we got to our room I took some of the towels and wiped her under carriage and paws.  Here head was perfectly clean.

I have some of this particular snood for sale but not in my boutique.  I will add one soon.  Right now this particular snood is in my facebook boutique.

Facebook Page Called Bassethoundtown Boutique and Rescue

I even put a little video on the listing…

So, there you have it…

More loving clean ears in a dirty world later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB both glad there are no parking lots on the rainbow…)

PS – I was even more glad for the snood when I was laying my head next to hers that night in bed;)


The Lily Book Tour 2016 – Heads to Natural Bridge State Resort Park, Slade KY!

November 1st, 2016 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and moving along lovers…After our bassetabulous picnic at Cumberland Falls we rolled along down the road to Slade, KY to Natural Bridge State Resort Park.  Much to our dismay you cannot see Natural Bridge from anywhere except a long hike up a steep mountain!!!  Hummmm…No!  That’s OK, we were actually there to drop off a Lily Book at the State Resort Park so mission accomplished.


We had great rooms that were connecting and Daisy Lynn just loved going back and forth!!!


We would probably not return to this particular State Park because it was not very dog friendly.  All the trails and walkways were off limits even if we did want to hike up to the Natural Bridge.  We did enjoy our time there and had fun seeing all of the hikers heading off.

We decided to leave the next morning and head to Midway, KY for lunch…If you look behind me you can see all kinds of cute shops that would be perfect for The Lily Book;)


I had it all mapped out including down to the table we wanted to sit at and the place I wanted to park!!!  We got them both.  This place is known for it’s home made apple cobbler so we had to try it after a KY hot brown!

Darlin’ Genes Apple Cobber Cafe!


This little town is Midway between Lexington, KY and Frankfort, KY.  The train runs right through the middle of town!


We love this place and will be back, hopefully delivering more Lily Books…


Next stop, Frankfort, KY –

More loving a KY sales trip later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB eating rainbow cobbler…)
