New Look for Christmas

We are slowly getting ready for Christmas at the Hound House.  We are going to be working on the Christmas card photos or outtakes this weekend so we can get them printed in the mail next week.  But in the mean time please enjoy our new Blog Header and Background that the talented Miss Judi over at SASS designed for us.

Cleo is still very heavy in our hearts and I wasn't quite ready to have her picture moved off the blog header just yet.  So Miss Judi was so creative and incorporated her into the header for as an angel watching over Winston and Amiee.

We are so much in LOVE with our new header and design look for the holidays.  If you are needing a new look for the holidays, just stop on over at the SASS blog and leave a comment.  Miss Judi will get back with on the details and the magic will begin and next thing you know you have a brand new look.

Thank you so much Miss Judi for our new look.

GABR Transport (Isabella, Gabe and Felix)

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to help GABR with another transport. This was actually the first time I have had bassets in the BUV on both ways of the trip. That sure makes a lot more fun then riding all by yourself.

A few months ago one of the Foster Parents for GABR was attacked by 2 big dogs in Indiana. He had just got done walking the neighbor girl home from visiting his bassets. The dogs came charging at him and he suffered over 70+ bite wounds and his one ear was pretty mangled but he is one tough cookie. He was able to finally get the dogs off him and get to his house where he could call for help. The dogs were PTS immediately and the owners could not prove any of their rabies shots so he must endure that know. He spent several days in the hospital then several weeks recuping with his family. During all this all his foster dogs and his own bassets had to be farmed out for some extra loving care while he recovered. Well he finally recovered and got we have been in the process of reuinting him with all his fur-babies.

Isabella was the last one of his fur-babies to make it back home and I was so honored to be part of her journey back to her Daddy. Isabella is a very special girl as she is one of the GABR Parvo puppies from about 5 years ago. Isabella was not even expected to walk let alone live through her experience. Marshall and his wife did such an awesome job with Isabella and she is one strong girl that walks like there is no tomorrow.

Well since Isabella was headed to Dwight for her transport back to Daddy, they decided to go ahead and move Gabe to his foster home as well. So Gabe and Isabella rode in the BUV to Dwight when they were turned over to another transporter for the rest of the trip. Gabe was going to his foster family and Isabella to her Daddy.


Isabella greeting her Daddy!  Priceless!

And this is Gabe.  Gabe is new to GABR and was just making his way to his Foster home.  He was about 5-6 years old and one of the sweetest soles.  He loved to be talked to and to have tons of belly rubs.  I also found out that he likes to stick his head out the window when he rides.  This is not safe practice so we immediately rolled that window up.

Then on our trip back to Bloomington we brought Felix.  Felix was making her way to St. Louis to be fostered by a wonderful lady from GABR.  Felix has already have a potential adopter that is interested in her.  She was the most gorgous basset and had a great figure.  She had some meat on her bones.

Rescue Me Week - Day #5

This is the final day for Mazie's Rescue Me Week.

During the week of November 7-11, Mazie is going to be honoring her Grampa J that passed away earlier this summer by having Rescue Me Week. For everyone that pawticipates in this event will have the opportunity to have 100 green papers donated to your favorite rescue/shelter. Mazie will be having a drawing the following week and 5 different blogs will win. That will be 5 different rescues/shetlers that will be so blessed to receive 100 green papers all because of Grampa J and his love for animals. How cool is that we get to honor Grampa J and help homeless pets find furever homes and then continue to help them with the dontation in Grampa J's honor.

One of our favorite rescues that we are heavily involved with is Guardian Angel Basset Rescue (GABR). Mom volunteers as a transporter for them and we move bassets from shelters, to their foster homes, to their furever homes.

Before we get started though we have an important update........

Bean and Lincoln that we featured on Tuesday Rescue Me Week just got adopted and have found their fur-ever home together. 

Congratulations to Bean and Lincoln!

The last couple of days we have highlighted the bonded basset pairs and the senior bassets that are in foster with GABR. Since today is the final day for Mazie's Rescue Me Week we are going to go ahead and show you all the remaining bassets that are available for adoption.  So here ya go.

Bizzy - 4 Year Old Female
Bloodhound Coloring in a Basset Body (Best of Both Breeds)

Delilah - 6 year old (Beagle/Basset) female

Lance - 4 year old male

Mya - 2 year old female

Sadie - 2 year old female


So if you can open your home to a hound just click on over to the GABR website for information on how to adopt to complete the necessary paperwork.

Mazie thank you so much for hosting this great event this week.  It has been a joy to highlight the fur-babies that need forever homes and to honor your Grampa J.
