January 31st, 2017 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Mother/Doghter matching snood lovers…As many of the residents know I have been designing and selling lines of snoods for about a decade or more.  I have stunning snoods in my inventory and will be adding them over time.

But for now!  Feast your eyes on this ensemble!


Mayor Daisy Lynn and I are modeling faux black mink and faux grey chinchilla snoods.  Mine is reversible and is so warm you would not believe it.  Unfortunately, my human snood is just a prototype but I am looking for more of the exact material.

Pretty cute huh?

More loving Mother/Doghter matching snoods later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB wearing rainbow snoods…)

Copper – the 20 year old basset hound (possibly older:)

January 30th, 2017 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Old Basset Hound lovers…So, far this is the oldest basset hound I have heard of.  But wait, let me back track.  Back on April 15, 2014 I did a blog posting titled,

“What is the oldest basset hound you have known or heard about?”

Recently I received a comment from a nice woman who has a hound named Copper.  She told me Copper is 20 years old!!!  Oh the joy of just thinking about that had me so happy.  So, I contacted her because I just had to find out more, more, more…

Himz Momma states…

“Merry Christmas, we rescued him 18 years ago.  He was found wondering the streets and we were specifically looking to rescue a basset.  The vet told us he was between 1 1/2 and 3 when we got him.  So we made him the age of our youngest son.  20 makes him 2 when we got him so technically he could be older.”

Copper in his prime…


A family favorite photo…


“He has gotten quite grey and skinny and not in great health the last few months.
He has been the best dog ever.”


I asked Copper’s Mommy what she thinks about his longevity and she responded…

“We have fed him really only salmon for the last 6 years. My husband thinks that Is a large part of his longevity. Thanks for asking about him.”

Isn’t this just a wonderful story?  It just is so touching…

More loving the thought of buying some salmon for Daisy Lynn later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB thinking that is a good idea!)



Holding hands with our late Mayor…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Holding Hands Lovers…Wow – I have gotten really behind lately with my blogging.  I really cannot explain it.  I still have not taken pictures of my fierce kitchen DIY project…

But I did run across this old picture from 2009 and I had to share.  I don’t think I have ever posted it because I was embarrassed at howl long our Chaps nails were.  Makes me cry now thinking that would stop me.  What a stupid thing to be embarrassed about.


Himz was such PROFOUND HOUND…

More being Profound less feeling embarrassed FOR SURE!!! Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB with giant beautiful rainbow paws…with long nails;)

Before pics…bassethoundtown kitchen DIY

January 26th, 2017 - 8:08 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and DIY lovers…Gawd it was hard to get motivated for our DIY project but we finally did with the help of a prodding Mayor!

These are some of the supplies Grandma and I got together to start the project.


Grandpa designed this kitchen about 18 years ago.  It is timeless and stunningly beautiful – however timeless, time has taken it toll in some areas…

This is next to my sink and the water damage along with staining is just down right gross…


Of course as it is with all projects it took on a life of it’s own.  It exploded into a bigger project and hours and hours of work for the team aka Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I…

But it is done and looks fabulous.  I will have share time later today or tomorrow.  I have to take the pictures still…

More thinking up our next DIY project later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB buying rainbow Flexshot…;)

Talking Chaps Wayne Rudert…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Talking Chaps Lovers…I love my talking Chaps and I hope you do as well.  Wow, talking Chaps has been greeting bassethoundtown residents for over a decade. Can you even believe that? He appears on my home page and on the Wisenheimer Wisdom page.  I still remember designing the talking Chaps.  It was so much fun.  The company that does this is called Sitepal and to keep Chaps up and talking cost about 200.00 dollars per year.

I just love himz so much…

Here he is with the late Lily Pad Serina VonFirstenburg, aka “The Child”


Here is a video I did for sitepal 10 years ago of Chaps “talking”.  I kept giving himz peanut butter so his mouth would move and the animation team could create him in his best likeness.  It was a lot of fun.

I miss him so much…

He was my big, big Burger Boy…He was such a great boy…

More loving my Chaps later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (The wonderkind himself, and Emma ATB)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and missing the flowers lovers…When you see a picture like this it just makes you sigh.  Deep into winter you realize times like this are pretty far off…


Regardless, the memory just makes me smile – looks like your Mayor is as well…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Share Time Lovers!!!  OK – Howl cute is this?  I made a snowman face out of cheese…hehehe


I had a small gathering for New Years Eve and decided to make snowmen my theme…So, I took a cake of Borsin soft cheese (as you can see) and hollowed out the eyes and filled them with black pepper.  I used the hollowed out section to add the white ball to the end of the red hot jelly hat!  The nose is a carrot (duhhhh…) and the mouth is also a carrot…


Annie and Judy Alessandro have be so sweet over the years to give me the majority of my snowman collection and I just love it!

Next we have a gift I received from my sister!

Isn’t this the cutest tote ever???


I just love it!  Our very own Mayor sitting up

So far 2017 is off to a great start!  More loving the new year and share time later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB eating borsin snowmen…)
