Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and picking a palette lovers.  Well, the Lily Book Tour is coming up soon (we may be in a town near you!)…  So, as one does, one picks a palette for the upcoming tour…


OMD – we love these towels!  Who knew a towel could mean so much?  Currently, we are searching for a smaller compatible towel for Daisy Lynn..

We would like to find one with these colors…Teal and Pink…


So much fun…I can’t wait to lay this baby on the beach!!!



But first we have to get our stamina up!


Daisy Lynn has miles to go before we hit the tour circuit!

More loving towels and palettes later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB laying on the exact same rainbow towels…)

Happy Puppy Day – or as we call it in bassethoundtown – Everyday;)

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and Puppy Day Lovers.  Too funny.  There is a day for everything and everything has a day.  This one really cracks me up because, well, everyday is Puppy day!

So, I took a picture of my puppy right now.  Isn’t she so very pretty!


Just look at her little neck bags.  Too cute…

Our little Mayor Puppy will be 5 in July.  Can you believe it?  It is really shocking to me at howl fast the past 4.5 years have gone.

More loving my Puppy later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB knowing that their Mamma loves them as well…)

Welcome to baby Dixie Doyle! So happy to meet you!!!

March 19th, 2017 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and new Baby Basset Lovers!  Please, drum roll please…

This is Miss Dixie Doyle!!!


Miss Dixie was recently adopted by Cindy and Ronald Doyle of TX.  Cindy and Ronald were ready to find love again after the painful loss of Rugs, Jethro, Ozzie and then Harriet.  They were not sure if they were going to adopt again but we all know howl that goes!!!  hahahaha


Cindy has volunteered for years at Basset Buddies Rescue of TX so she didn’t have to look far to find someone special!

I asked Cindy for a little background…
“The owner who surrendered her to BBRTX bought her from Craigslist for her infant daughter.  Dixie didn’t respond too well with their daughter and that’s why they gave her up.”

Note from Cat…Who buys a basset hound for an infant?   

“Her first foster with BBRTX had her for about a month.  During her time with the first foster she had a false/chemical pregnancy so she went through the surgery to get spayed.  She was still recovering from the spaying when the second home took her in to help her recover from the spay surgery under a foster to adopt situation.  After Dixie was healthy and healed she would be adopted.  Then, unfortunately, she also had heartworms.  So after she recovered from the spaying, she went through the heartworm treatments.  She was forced to stay calm for a whole month and was in some pain but she handled it just fine.  The foster to adopt home had another dog and Dixie is very possessive and protective over her owners so she was getting aggressive with the other dog in the household.  They were also expecting a new baby in a month and they could not have that behavior around the baby.  So, they contacted BBRTX and requested that she be placed in another home more suitable for Dixie.  For this reason Dixie will be an only dog, which is a great situation for us because we will be able to take her with us most places and when we travel.”

(The Doyles have another lake property in TX, this is Dixie thinking about swimming???)


“Dixie has only been with us for a few weeks but she is such a good girl.  She is potty trained, crate trained and minds very well.  She is very smart and her previous family was teaching her a few tricks.  We look forward to getting to know her better and plan on attending some basset events with her in the future.”


“We are so glad that she landed in our arms and she’s already spoiled rotten!”


“And she is so excited to be a resident of the most famous Basset Hound Town, run by the most beautiful and famous Mayor, Daisy Lynn Rudert!”



Thank you Doyle Family for rescuing sweet Dixie!  We are in love…

More loving and welcoming Dixie later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB sending rainbow slobber…)



13 Years Ago Today…

March 18th, 2017 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and Lily Pad Serina VonFirstenbug (aka “The Child”) lovers…Wow – it has been 13 years since our Lily Pad went over the rainbow bridge.  Seems so long ago.  Seems like yesterday…


She had remarkable energy that changed my life forever.  After rescuing her everything changed direction and bassethoundtown was born…

Thank you to all of the residents that picked our town and please… help me in honoring our founding member.  Lily Pad…

More loving my child later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with my child…)

Share time in Bassethoundtown…

March 13th, 2017 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Share Time Lovers…As many of our residents know I love to create and sell things in the bassethoundtown boutique and on other selling platforms.  Many of you may not know that I have a rather large leather collection and I have come up with a few ideas for it.  I decided to purchase a handbag and redesign it.


The basset hound is suede and as you can see it matches the bag perfectly.  I cut it out via a decal I designed as well.


Well, it sold on ebay within 24 hours.  It really made me feel good.

I was going to put it in the basset hound town boutique and blog about it before it sold, but…I guess someone loved it as much as I did…

More share time later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB loving the colors of the rainbow…)

Facebook find of the day – Flat Basset redefined…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Flat Basset Lovers…Ahhhhh….

Can you believe howl cute this is?  Have no idea who drew it but I think it might be someone in the UK.


Maybe just maybe they have a reason for going Flat Basset…

An a darn good one at that!  Making friends is always reason to stop and pull a flattie…

More loving the little things in life later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chap and Emma ATB making friends with rainbow ants…)
