Blistering Hot Day in Illinois

It has been very warm here in Illinois the last few days. Pretty much the same all over from what the news is saying. HDM doesn't seem to believe in air conditioning so we do pretty good with going outside after being inside. There isn't much difference. Here is a few pictures of us trying to stay cool.
The picture above is Tabby taking up all the fan. She definately knows where to lay to stay cool.
Again, Amiee is left out of the cool breeze. Winston is stilling the fan. Here is one of all 3 the basset hounds trying out the new couch and waiting for HDD.

In Memory of Our Lost Fur-Kids

Last week was a very rough week for my animal loving friends. This post is dedicated to the Memory of two very special dogs. My BFF, Amy's, dog Uncle Schroeder went to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, June 15, 2009. Uncle Schroeder was the best little Terrier anyone could ask for. My BFF and her husband adopted Schroeder from a bad situation. Since they had him he had battled several different health issues, but never appeared to be "sad or unhappy". He was the "Happiest" Little White Dog since he went to live with Amy, Jeff, Wally and Minnie. They gave him a great life while they had him and their house will not be the same with him gone. We will always hold Uncle Schroeder aka "Little White Dog" in a special place in our hearts. Run free at the Bridge and give Precious, Elliott and Reba some big slobber kisses for us. R.I.P - Uncle Schroeder aka "Little White Dog" - June, 2009

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Another friend of mine had to help her Rescue Sheltie "Missy" to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, June 22. My friend, Patty, adopted Missy from the local Sheltie Rescue. She was in very bad shape when she joined their family. They brought her back to health and she thrived in their home. They added several other rescue shelties to their home, but there is always something about that first "Rescue" that stays with your heart for a long time. R.I.P. and Running Free at the Bridge Missy - June 2009 (picture to be added soon) Uncle Schroeder and Missy I am sure you were greeted with "OPEN PAWS" when you crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. We will see you all again someday. In Memory of the Fur-kids at the Bridge: Precious "Pokey" - my first ever basset hound. 6/14/93 - 6/18/05 Elliott - my big lover boy basset hound. 7/24/95 - 1/22/07 Miss Reba - my BFF's fur-kid. 6/17/05 Uncle Schroeder - my BFF's fur-kid. 6/15/09 Missy - my other BFF's fur-kid. 6/22/09

So I have decided that June has not become the best month for me. If it wasn't for my Wedding Anniversary in June, I think I would just skip it. HoundDogMom, Tabby, Cleo, Winston and Amiee

New Truck Day - The HoundDog Truck

Well on Saturday HDM, HDD and 4-legged brother left for the day. All they kept saying was Cleo we are going to buy you a truck. They have been wanting a bigger truck for sometime, so the hounddogs could go camping. It was very crowded in the cab of a regular old 67 Chevy truck. So they came home with this on Saturday (6/6/09). Our new HoundDog Truck - 1992 Chevy cab-in half long bed dully. Sweet. HDM and HDD get the front seats and the 3 bassets get the back seat. We can't wait to take it to the waddle in September. Lots of room for Cleo's golf cart as well. HDM says the camper is next, but we must be patient.

Cleo, Winston, Amiee (Tabby too, but she is not fond of going places like the bassets)

Amiee here,
Well I learned one more new thing over the weekend. I have learned how to get on top of the picnic table. For months I have watched my big fur-sister Tabby and Cleo do this, but for the life of me could not figure it out. Since I take almost all my lessons from Winston, and I have yet to see him master this task. I just assumed it wasn't something I suppose to do. Well heck with that Winston because my sisters know what they are doing. You can see the world from up here. Not to sure if my sisters are fond of this but I sure am.
Check me out.
