Bassethoundtown Walking Club fall event coming up Sunday, 10-30-16!

October 22nd, 2016 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Bassethoundtown Walking Club Lovers!  Our next walk will be on Sunday October the 30th from 1 til 3.  We will be honoring the life of one of our favorite members…Nosey Anne Luestella Pearl Newbold…


Nosey was recently diagnosed with lymphoma and that is never something you want to hear about a loved one.

Hopefully, Nosey will be able to attend so she can see howl many people and hounds love her.

Nosey with her Mom, Marsie and Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert…


Nosey is an icon in the basset community and has done so much good work for rescue and helping many in need of a pet, smile and love…


More loving Nosey later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB really sorry in hearing the news…)

Bassethoundtown Walking Club 2016 Spring event a huge party!!!

May 23rd, 2016 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset and walking Hounds lovers…Yesterday was the perfect day for a pack of hounds to bound through a beautiful park setting.  We had so much fun.  Unfortunately, the Mayor Daisy Lynn Rudert had to stay home and nurse a sick paw with her Grandma.


Daisy Lynn has chronic interdigital cysts which means she gets what we call “meanies” between her toes.


This was the worst case yet.  I will blog about our efforts to solve this problem soon but for now she is doing better and on her 5th day of antibiotics.



I always get to the park about 2 hours early so I can set the place up.



Believe it or not a hound beat me their!  LOL – She was so cute and guess what?  Her name is Daisy!  This is not her Mom.  This pic was taken later and this Daisy was such a lover.  She came to me this same way and just put her paws around my neck and hugged me.  I love her…


The pack of hounds started arriving.  I counted 26 total!


This pack drove in from IN – about an hour and 1/2 away.  That is the Grand Dame Annie in front.  Misty the lace ear was recently rescued and you can see Daisy again!


The place is beginning to fill up!

Here comes Jackson!


From left to right…Maybelle, Bruser (the english bull dog), Roscoe, Hank, Sam the dog, and Daisy from IN.  FYI there were 2 Daisies from IN!  Wow!


Annie Alessandro came early and had the absolute time of her life!


We actually take up the entire shelter.  I put about 5 big bowls a water around because after eating wieners on a silver platter one gets a bit thirsty!

This is Sam the Dog who came with his Mommy Marsie, Daddy Tom, and sister Nosey!


Here comes Nosey!


Check these hounds out!
Meat Man, Tochi, Zane, and Doodle!  I am not sure who the 2 to the right of the pic are.  I am ashamed of myself!


Here comes Tater!


With his sister Cookie!


Dexter Wayne, AKA my boyfriend watches on as Molly, Maybelle, Cookie and Tater get some more wieners!  A pack favorite!


This could very well be a money shot! Tater, Cookie, Maybelle, Molly, Rosebud and Ellie Mae in the hound stroller!  OMD!  I want one of those.


Lets get a better look at this setup!  Wow!  It even has a cooling fan on the roof.


Then we all head down to the dog park on our leisurely stroll…


Another embarrassing moment…Who is this hound??? Love the chalk art that Judy’s granddaughter did!


Dogged determination to get to the best smell!  It’s neck and neck as Cookie pulls forward over Doodle and Tater!


Annie walks about a mile every day and can put some of us to shame.  She is an elder lady as well!


This is Misty to the right a very petite sweet lace ear!!! Sam the Dog is to the left with himz Mommy Marsie!


Such fun and you could really tell that the bassets were so happy.  They are pack hounds and really enjoy all the smells!  You can almost see them smiling:)


Here come one of the Daisies and Rosebud!!!


We got to the dog park and rested under a nice shade tree…I believe this is Daisy again with her Dad…


OMGoodness sakes alive!  Look at me in all of my glory!!!  I am in hound heaven and loving every second of it!


This is me and my boyfriend, Dexter Wayne.  Just look at his face.  His eyes are simply amazing.  I love himz…


Then we headed back to our beloved shelter #2 and had some fun gift giveaways!

LQQK – Miss Nosey won the tartan snood!


Annie showing off her mad sitting up skills for the group.  She was the best entertainment ever!


A good time was had by all…

As you can see, one of the youngest Miss Ellie Mae was tongue out dog tired!


I think some bassethoundtown walking club hounds slept good last night!

More loving our club later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (who will be at the next walk come hell or high water), (Chaps and Emma ATB running a rainbow walking club…)


Spring Grove Cemetery – 4521 Spring Grove Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45232

October 31st, 2015 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and walking lovers…The Spring Grove Cemetery is one of those places that you enter and a sense of calm and pure beauty comes right over you.  Just jaw droppingly beautiful.

Here is a link that will come in handy when you visit.

“Welcome to America’s second largest and most beautiful cemetery and arboretum. This guide is meant to direct you to some of the more historic and artistic highlights that we’re sure you will nd fascinating. Generally, this walking route takes approximately an hour to two hours to complete but feel free to spend as much time as you’d like exploring our wonderful history, art, architecture, and landscape.”
Spring Grove consists of 733 acres with over 44 miles of paved roadways, a cascading waterfall and 15 lakes.
This is a little foot bridge that Daisy Lynn and I took.
This mausoleum is on the other side!  Wow – All of this for a tomb!  This article said it would cost in the millions today to build.
The trees were at their fall peak.  We picked the perfect day to enjoy the beauty!
Grandma took a short rest before Daisy Lynn took off again!
This structure is fairly recent – All pink and grey granite…
What a treasure this place is only about 1/2 hour from bassethoundtown’s main location.  We will go back in the spring. They also have trolly tours that focus on different aspects of the Cemetery.  That would be fun!
More loving day trippin’ later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB and by our side…)

Do you like this sign I made for her?


Annie’s Daddy Rick grilled some hot dogs for the 2 and 4 legged walkers!


The walkers started arriving…

Here are Matt and Ali with Maybelle and Molly!  The other hounds in the picture are Hank to the left and I believe Rosebud to the right…


The smell of roasting wieners filled the fall air!

Here comes Cookie and Tater!


Cookie and Tater’s Mom took this picture of Rosebud!  Princess for a day, (and for life!)


Well, what would a shower be without shower games?

I thought a hunt was in order!

Look at these cute little bags I filled with a dog treat and a bunny!  What hound does not want to hunt bunnies?


The hound were in their glory hunting for treats!


I was in my glory loving on Annie and Abby Alessandro!


Then we had a tail wagging contest!  That was fun!

Zane won! This is himz with himz Mommy from awhile back.  I did not capture the tail win!


Then we had a freckle counting contest.  Judy and I had counted them a few days earlier…117!  The walkers were wayyyyyy off!


We took a fantastic walk around the park!  Matt, Molly and Maybelle were in the lead…


Amanda and Doodle were not far behind!


Lor had a fantastic time with Tater and Cookie!

May 29th, 2015 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Walking Club Lovers…I enjoy sharing this club’s basset walks with our residents.  It is really nice that the guy that heads it up also video tapes the experience.  That is a really good feature.

This video is about 10 minutes long.  Nice lunch time entertainment!

What a lovely way to spend 10 minutes.  I can almost smell the love…

More loving the music by Kingsbury Episcopi Band later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB hosting basset hound walks over the rainbow…)

Gearing up for the bassethoundtown walking club spring event – and I had to share this Evelyn Leavens drawing!

May 13th, 2015 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset and walking hounds lovers…I had to share this wonderful drawing by the late Evelyn Leavens.  I just adore it.  Evelyn sold me the original years ago.  It reminds me a boy that comes to the walking club event.  I am going to frame a small copy of it as a free gift give away this Sunday.


Gosh, Evelyn was such a great artist – miss her everyday!

More loving capturing the hound walk later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB pulling and sniffing away…)

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Walking Club Lovers…It’s time to dust off those short legs and get them moving to the Spring Bassethoundtown Walking Club event!  Come one come all low to the ground hounds!!!


Yesterday Judy (Mom to Bumper and Abby) and I went off on our traditional deliver the fliers day.  We hit the local hound homes in hopes of catching some in their natural habitat.  We were lucky enough to catch these 2!


These 2 girls were out for their morning walk heading home to their sister who is 15 years old!

Judy – do you remember their names?

OK – just about a month away.

It is always so much fun for the hounds to gather into a huge pack.  They just love it.

But for now – Mayor Daisy Lynn in her natural habitat! 8:00am this morning – waiting for the school kids to walk by.


More loving large packs later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB in their rainbow habitat…)
