How many bassets can fit in one recliner? 
Apparently two - albeit it doesn't look real comfortable.
My silly boys.

Day 76 Teardrop Basset

Doodle Drawing

This Basset originally began as a therapy for me.
Some sad changes going on in my personal life
 (good in the long run but in the short term )
But as often happens when we are feeling sorry for our situation
we are humbled by the hardship of others. 
I finished the teardrops on this basset watching the coverage
of the terrible tragedy in Moore, OK. 
It truly put my sad feelings in perspective.
My thoughts and prayers are focused on the families
and friends impacted by such a terrible disaster.

(courtesy of
My 365 Days of Bassets Journey had to go on a TIME OUT
or better described a SURGICAL PAUSE.
My week long recovery last from 5/14 - 5/20.

But I'm Back Now.

A priceless picture of all the bassets. 
They sit so patiently waiting for Dad to come home.
As soon as they hear his vehicle coming they start whining
and shaking uncontrollably.  You'd think they loved him or something.

Food Craft

This yummy basset is created with Craisins.  They were just sitting
there on the counter and I'm confident they were saying use me.

As a disclaimer, it is impossible for me to say that no craisins were
harmed in this creation because several were devoured during creation.

This seemed like a great craft when I first saw the craft.
After I printed everything out, lo and behold I found

This turned out really cute but was quite a difficult task.
