Man I am so glad baseball season is OVER.

Rooting for the giants #bassetsandnlcs12 #baseballhasbeenberryberrygudtwomee

Now we can get on to more important things like eating pancakes and going North.

Ernest Basset has a lot on his mind.

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Ernest's half brother oxboro's - look at you looking at me aka "Look at you"  or the Lone ranger.  The only pup that survived a devastating infection and caused many tears and much heartache.  He is nearly E's twin and both look like their dad "uthant".  

Have you met my little bruddar?  He comes from another mother, but we look a lot like our pops.


Even as a puppy he was bossy.

I am with him and Phracey and other assorted relations in the 509. So far we have broken the washing machine, harassed sheep!, turned up the AC and caused general mayhem.  I love being here.

I am in the 509 with my sissy and other sorted relations.

On the way I visited the Yakima Farmer's Market to fulfill someone's wish.

Wish. Want.

Where I stopped and was petted every fifteen feet. Good thing I am so patient.  I was also HOT.

Laying of hands.

I grumbled the whole way there because the moms DROVE TOO FAST.  I am going to lead up a commission when the new governor is elected to determine if the 70 mph speed limit should be reduced to 40 mph when there is a basset in the car.

This is so cool!  I want to meet this fellow. My moms met this fellow. He is really tall.


I have always had a soft spot for long legged dogs....

I am getting ready to see my sissy! I am getting bathed and primped tomorrow in order to be as handsome as she is beautiful.

the bath

I cannot wait to see Phracey, Look at you and the Noble Spot.  I promised the moms I would behave while I am in the 509. We'll see how that goes.

The emergence

I feel fall coming on.

Gene Simmons - eat your heart out

It makes hounds sleepy.

Wednesday night, the ppatch

I wonder if they grew me a pumpkin....


Soon I'll get to see my sissy!

Oh Hai!

Tuesday trio #tuesdaymorningwithcharlie #fuzel @ #houndsofinstagram

Someone went to Paris and I was left to my own devices.

Full on.

My ears grew bigger and Charlie is still in the way.

To be continued... #beaglesofinstagram #sidewalkart #chalkart #thelongtail #seattle

However, he is still my best friend and I am still not admitting to actually liking Annie.


Things have been really slow around here.  N mom promises to blog every day during the month of September to keep to a SCHEDULE and to show off her mad instagramming skills.  Here's a SCHEDULE to follow - sleep, wake up, feed Ernest, walk Ernest, play squeaky with Ernest, leave Ernest alone to nap, wake up Ernest for lunchtime walk, feed Ernest sandwich crusts, leave Ernest alone for nap, take Ernest for pre-dinner walk, make Ernest dinner, barely eat your own dinner before Ernest starts groaning for walk, walk Ernest again with Charlie, play squeaky with Ernest, undress Ernest and put him to bed.  Easy peasy. I don't know why this is so hard to stick to, it seems so logical to me.

It is not safe out there.

A 6' Ball Yellow Bellied Python is loose in Cowen Park. I love to go this park on warm days with my  Uncle Dale.  The fact the python escaped on his own walk right before my walk was to commence was inconsiderate and poorly timed.  Are there not leash laws for snakes? I have to wear one. My walker also gets the pleasure of cleaning up my poops. Do snakes poop? If a snake poops in the woods does anyone hear it?

Can you believe this photo? Now everyone is going to want one of their own!

Ironically the snake's name is Timid and he is one scary looking dude.  He was seen entering Cowen park and headed towards the kid's play area. I hope he doesn't make it all the way into Ravenna Park where I like to sniff around the brush.  I wish Charlie was here to howl and scare the snake. Annie would just stare the snake down and then she could get the python skin made into a fancy handbag.  Python is hot this season as is yellow!

I would walk away from the snake because I am not a fool.  Antoine St. Exupery's Petit Prince has me a bit concerned because if a snake can swallow an elephant, he can swallow a basset!

We'll be staying on the pavement for the next few days and monitor the Twitter feed of this now notorious yellow bellied serpent.

Hissing from the ssssssidelines,
