Chaps reporting from the rainbow bridge…

Howlow Fellow Basset Hound and theory for happy living lovers.  Last week Albert Einstein’s note on his theory for happy living sold for £1.18 MILLION pounds.

The Late Mayor Chaps Wayne Rudert reports from the rainbow bridge that these words are indeed correct…


“A quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest.” 1922

Einstein had recently been informed that he was going to receive the Nobel Prize for physics, and his fame outside of scientific circles was growing.

A Japanese courier arrived at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo to deliver the scientist a message but he had no change to give as a tip.

Einstein did not want the messenger to leave empty-handed, so he wrote him two notes by hand in German, according to the seller, a relative of the messenger.

The other reads: ”Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Often times Chaps will have similar musings from the rainbow bridge.  He likes to sit in quite contemplation as he ponders the reflections of his path and greets those who are making their own journey.

What a joyful boy…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and not getting older lovers…What the What?  I was looking at Daisy Lynn the other day and noticed something…Is that some white fur above her left eye?


“Momma said she refuses to call it grey”…

I friend called it “Wisdom Fur”… Isn’t that cute?

I just think 5 years old is too young for wisdom fur…don’t you?

More loving my forever young puppy later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with lots and lots of rainbow wisdom fur…)

Howllo fellow Basset Hound and 11 year old birthday lovers. In dog years what is that?  Anyway…it seems longer to me than 11 years that we have been a town on the internet.  So many residents and so many hounds saved and placed on a couch because of all of us.

A couch for every basset“!

We are looking forward to the next 11 years and many more after that.  Thank you to our residents for keeping up with us and helping out when a hound needs a paw up.

More loving rescue and blogging later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB eating rainbow birthday cake…)

The Lily Book Tour – Palm Beach, FL – Blog 8 of ___

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and window shopping in Palm Beach lovers…Before we leave Palm beach for my birthday dinner I must share.  Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I were walking towards our car, the basset hauling vehicle when my bassetdar (basset radar) went off…

I spotting it in this window…


Yes, it really was that small and we were that far away. I have MAD SKILLS with bassetdar for sure…

We were in front of  a shop called Mary Mahoney. 

What a cool shop.  Here is what I picked up on my bassetdar…


It’s a double old fashion glass that is part of a six glass series called Dog Barware by Artel.  Well, I had to go in and check it out.  I knew it would be out of my range and I was right.  But let me tell you what, if you have the pennies – it is worth every one of them.  The masterpiece runs about 200.00 dollars per glass.  I just love it.  It also comes in clear and other colors…


“The Dogs Collection visually confirms the sentiments of author Eckhart Tolle who describes dogs as the “essence” of who we are. Inspired by ARTĚL founder/director Karen Feldman’s own beloved Brussels Griffon, the strikingly detailed engravings in this collection convey the regal nature of six breeds: Basset Hound, Bulldog, Dachshund, Labrador, Poodle, and Pug. They are available individually or as a set of six glasses, making a perfect gift for the dog lovers in your life. They are also available in a variety of additional colors, call for details.”

I thought that quote was so pretty…Dogs as the essence of who we are.  So touching…

I thought the residents would enjoy this unique peek into a few moments in time.

“I need a double old fashion…” hahaha
