This week's famous hound is in honor of the 4th of July, in which we celebrate the history and independence of America. And what better dog to represent America than the basset hound? We are as American as the Statue of Liberty, which was a gift from France. Seeing as how hounds can trace their ancestry back to France, we are actually another gift from France. Except instead of being 100 feet tall and made of metal, we are 1 foot tall and made of a mixture of awesomeness and cuddlyness.
Really America, you got the sweet end of the deal with the basset hound gift.
Anyway, our famous hound this week is none other than the Basset President of the United States, as shown in the webcomic DogFort.
Hail to the basset
DogFort is pretty funny! But sometimes they show other presidents instead of the basset president. I think that's because the basset president was during World War II. It makes me glad that I don't have to fight any wars, but can take a nap on my couch and in my bed instead!
So our newest famous hound is a famous basset hound president! Happy 4th of July!
