Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Website stat lovers! This was the coolest thing! Yesterday, someone in Argentina linked to a blog posting I did about this guy named

Mamoru Oshi, and an eariler blog posting I did about him.


He is HUGE in Japanese animation and he also incorporates his love of his basset hound into his movies. I don’t know if it was a basset hound thing or just a Mamoru Oshi thing, but it was cool none the less! I could not tell, because it was all in a different language.

It was really fantastic because about a thousand extra visitors came to basset hound town yesterday. It was kind of thrilling for me because I love this guy. I have been following him for years. I have sent him e-mails asking to interview him but I have never heard back.

I hope that someday I can met him and his hound, GABE, in cyberspace. The first e-mail I sent him was back in 2006. That’s OK, I am very patient!

I Love, cool stuff like this!

More Japanese animation later, Love……..Cat, Chaps and Emma

Famous Basset Hounds!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and keeping track of the famous hound lovers! LOL!

I love keeping track of all things basset hounds and I have been wanting to do a sub blog category on famous basset hounds for a long time. I know all of our basset hounds are famous in their own right but his sub blog is some what different. I want to do features on bassets like, Boswell, Cleo, Hugo (Marilyn Monroe’s basset), bassets in movies and more. By more I mean basset hound that are heroes and sometimes touch us even more than the hounds in print or in the movies.

I thought it would be fun and touching! So, my graphic designer and I worked on a new header for this sub blog today. It is not up yet. There will be some fun flash details attached to it. I thought you might like to see it before it goes up as a header.


If you are wondering???????? Chaps and Emma will most likely wind up in this category at some point, but not now. They are not “famous” enough yet! Who knows what famous means? I have some pretty obscure stuff in my pocket.

I will look at published authors who showcase basset hound and movies that show our dear breed. It will be fun. I actually think Lily and Chloe qualify but they will be down on the list. I am pretty sure I will start with Boswell. He is my favorite famous basset!


It will be fun and I hope many of you will send in some famous hounds. Famous is all in a word. Do you have a story?

More famous stories later………Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
