Ebay is so funny…SOLD – SOLD – SOLD

April 28th, 2018 - 10:10 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Ebay lovers…Well, maybe not lovers.  It is so expensive to have a shop on ebay and fully use their services.  Anyway, I have had a shop for over a decade.  It is part of my company… Basset Hound Town Enterprises LLC.  I still have inventory from over 2 decades that I need to market and move.  I am finally getting around to it.  This is a current listing from my store on Ebay.

I think I told the residents that I also have shops on Etsy, Facebook, and my own website.  Wow!  Lots of work but you know it’s my passion to help the homeless basset hounds!!!

Oh, and that reminds me…I am starting the application process to have my very own 501(c)3.  Yes, fellow residents…my very own Not For Profit.  It’s a big step but well worth it.  I want those who purchase from me to be able to write it off.  Currently, most of what I make goes to the homeless so I think this is a good move.  I will keep you posted.

More loving “A couch for every hound” later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (has 3 couches), (Chaps and Emma ATB cheering me on laying on rainbow couches…)




Boswell Basset Hound Original Vintage Rare
Final Proof for Artist Evelyn Leavens

Boswell Basset Hound Original Vintage Rare Final Proof for Author and Artist Evelyn Leavens

Evelyn Leavens was my friend for over 2 decades.  Prior to her passing away 5 years ago she donated many items to my basset hound rescue.  I also purchased several treasured items of her art work.  Evelyn was also a mentor to me.  I also wrote a children’s book about my basset hound Lily.  

This offering is an item called a final proof for the Author and Artist Evelyn Leavens to review.  At this point all changes and corrections  have been made but final proofs still sent.  Evelyn kept these proofs in her possession since the book was printed in 1958.  Evelyn negotiated for all final proofs that anyone had be sent to her.  She had the vision and forethought to keep these.  Over the years she would pass them out to school children after she read the book.  As she was sorting through her life’s work she found the boxes again.  And so dear reader…she passed them to her biggest basset hound fan – me!!!  All of them show age and some yellowing.  

After much thought about display I have come up with a two sided thick acrylic frame that offers both sides of the final proof.  So, as you please you can turn the frame and have double the art work.  It is very light weight so you can even move it from room to room as the mood strikes you.  

You may see other offerings of Evelyn’s basset hound artwork online but you will never see her final proofs or for that matter a display in this fashion.  Other offerings are reproductions or pages torn from a book.  

All money from the sale of this item will go to my basset hound rescue which I fund through my business, basset hound town enterprises.  This is not a tax deductible sale.  

Please look at all of the pictures and ask any questions because…





Thanks for your consideration and love of basset hounds…

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and Daisy Sunglasses lovers!!!  WOW!!!  Recently I got a bad cold and was so sad.  I had made it through the winter being so careful avoiding humankind.  LOL – Then it was not to be.  I got a dreaded spring cold.  Ugh…

So, to cheer up my spirits my BFF dropped these sunglasses off at my door.

Not the best pictures in the world but you get the drift!  It really made hacking and sneezing so much better to handle!!!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and belly rubbing lovers…Well, today has officially become Spring in #bassethoundtown.  What a gorgeous day!!!

First off Daisy Lynn and I ventured outside to check out the yard.

This is her excited look!  hahaha – She is so sweet and just loves her life.  What a dear hound she is.


After we walked around a little bit and made notes for our landscaper to do our spring clean we came back in to send him a text.









(that is Grandma’s hand coming into the picture…)

Did I mention she loves her life?  hahahaha

More Spring Days and rubbing bellies later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, and (Chaps and Emma ATB with warm pink bellies…)
