So I thought long and hard about what hound to honor. He has already honored so many of them, it was tough to choose a good one. Then I remembered a hound from the good old days, when famous bassets did not frolic in hedonism. She was a classy gal, the sort of hound that a young man like myself could admire without being disrespectful. I am of course talking about Cynthia the basset from the show Green Acres.
She sure was pretty... wait... is that a skunk?
I will confess... Cynthia was my first puppy crush. Now that I am an older, distinguished hound gentleman, I have come to appreciate the company of ladies for their personality, and not just for their sleek, wrinkly form, their long ears, and their drooping jowls. But I still like those things too! I am old, but not dead.
So... add Cynthia to the list of famous hounds!
