Basselope Huntin'

Well, on Wednesday, we ALL got groomed.

Luckily, we all survived. But just barely.

Since we had to endure dat torture, I told Brinley we needed to have some fun! Besides bike ridin (ME), barkin TV (her), walks and playing in da backyard. 

We needed an advenshure! So I suggested we go on a hunt for da elusive basselope. Ya know, dat famous ferocious beast?? 

Brinley wuz game to go! I told her I'd heard dat in ancient times (like 2005), basselopes roamed the backyard. Momma has talked about em.

Finley said those were basset hounds, not basselopes. And that I wuz not gonna find any out there, all I'd find wuz lizards.  

But we didn't let her discourage us, we went bravely exploring through the flowers, looking for a basselope. Suddenly, we heard a rustling in the bushes. 

OMD, I spotted a basselope!

Hmm, not so ferocious as I had imagined. Ackshually, kinda cute.

So I sniffed her up.

She says her name are Rosebud and she wants to be my pal.

Brinley gave her the side eye - just don't think ya can control the TV changer Rosebud. 

Then we heard more rustling - OMD, Rosebud has a sister. Who are also named Rosebud. OMD, this are gonna be even more confusing than telling me and Brinley apart!

P.S. Da momma highly recommends the book The Last Basselope - speshully if ya has kids or grandkids. Ya know Opus the penguin?? Yeah, it are by that guy. She and grandma are big fans of his and both got these Rosebud stuffies for themselves. So it looks like I'll be sharing my bed wif a basselope!


  1. Well Kinley that was a great adventure, with a happy ending too. Well happy, I guess, if you don't minding sharing your bed with a Basselope or two...
    Toodle pip!

    OMD... I got so worried fur ya meeting such a critter - but instead to make new furiends makes it all just wonderfurs!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. I don't understand. All the basselopes are female-there are no little basselopes. How do they clone themselves?

  4. You guys look so cute after your torture time! Good job finding the Basselope! I've heard they're very elusive!

  5. Wow! They look just like squeaky toys! (Do they squeak?) My Florida associate Miss Charlee says her human has a jackalope at her house.

    We'll have to take a look at those books. They seem like something my ghostwriter would like.

  6. We have never seen a basselope but will keep our eyes peeled!

  7. They are strange....but cute. We hope you got some garden smells on you to disguise the groomin' smells. LOL!

  8. You caught the dreaded basselope. And you have tamed it. You are our hero

  9. they look like some nice critters

  11. OMD, Ma looooooooooved Opus! She even has saved a few greeting cardies with him on them! I remembers the basselope, so Ma has to go and gets the book, cause he is one of Ma's fav cartoonist!!!
