Dog Loves You!

Dog loves you not.

Loves you!

Loves you not.

Loves you!

Loves you not.

Loves you and the flower too!

“Dog” is a Bassett Hound, named Howard. Who knew?! For more cute puppies go to Nat Geo Wild Your Puppy Pictures thanks to Marilyn T.

    Our Dog, who art on the porch, Howard be they name

  2. Aw, this photo actually made me laugh! So sweet, with the droopy eyes and ears! And named HOWARD, lol — I love it!

  3. Those ears! Those eyes! Those paws! Those jowls!

  4. Birdcage says:

    I thinking about getting a bassett hound.

  5. Martha in Washington says:

    Thy dogdom come, thy will be done
    (especially when you look at me with those eyes)

  7. Eric Hanneken says:

    Columbo also referred to his basset hound as “Dog,” although that was because he never decided on a proper name for him.

  8. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    ok, everyone sing along!! “Do your ears hang low..”

  9. Rachael says:

    Howard, I loff you!!!

  10. Hush Puppy Love!

  11. Fird Birfle says:

    ….”And God saw that it was Cute.”

    LOVIN’ that great big, bright, humongous Flowere. And Howard holding it in his teefs, like a Spanish flamenco dancere…..

  12. First, the combination of Howard, his purple coneflower, his eyes, his ears, is tooooooo cute for mere words. I must squee and be keeled to emote my response properly.
    Second, tracylee and Martha in Washington – I almost ruined my monitor guffawing all over it, thank you very much! 😀 As a very spiritual Christian, I thank you for starting off my prayers in a joyful frame of mind, though I gotta believe God rolled his eyes at my constant sniggering/snickering at some point. And please, folks, the previous are my way of expressing my opinions so let me have my free speech, okey dokey?

  13. Malinki says:

    Hush, puppy.

  14. One of the best pictures ever.

  15. Oh, stinkin’, STINKIN’ cute! Howard, I am yours!

  16. Desdemona says:

    Check out that Nat Geo link — Howard is only the beginning!

  17. Is anyone else reminded of Henry Gibson?

  18. Arrrggg! Now I have the picture of a famenco dancing Basset Hound in my head.
    How am I supposed to work? LOL!

  19. Aww, sweet puppy wants you to be healthy! He’s bringing you an echinacea flower! Just the cutest little thing I’ve seen since…well, the corgi pup a few days ago!

  20. Leeeps. 🙂

  21. There was a Basset Hound on TV when I was a kid, her name was Églantine.
    Her master Basile, would try to get her to do something, anything, like bark or come or move even and she would just sit there, looking at him with those big eyes. LOL!

  22. Widdle cutie! He’s got something on his nose. *beep*

    Can’t… ignore… those eyes! Must… walk… the dog!

    Cute overload has an abundance of puns! Today they’re unusually punny!

  23. Whut?!

  24. No one can work with a flamenco dancing Basset hound in his/her head. I think you can go home.

  25. I happen to agree with you. I think God has a great sense of humor!

    (He created giraffes and platypuses, after all. :mrgreen: )

  26. (Platypi?)

  27. Sock it to me !!!!!

  28. tracylee says:

    you’re right… impossible. I just tried.

  29. tracylee says:

    I happen to believe that God digs bad puns. So all is right with the world 🙂

  30. tracylee says:

    give us this day our daily kibble, and forgive us when we forget to scratch those ears, as we forgive those who trespass into our garden to pick the flowers.

  31. And deliver us from Beagles.

  32. (The Original) Mel says:

    I miss my basset hound, Molly McButter. I am a bit of a dog jowl enthusiast.

  33. skippymom says:

    Oh, his name is Howard.
    Before I read that, I just assumed he was named Andy, as in that classic hymn: “Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am his own…”

  34. I used to be a dyslexic atheist. I am still dyslexic, but after seeing that pic, I now believe in Dog! 😀

  35. skippymom says:

    When I was a kid, our neighbors had a Bassett named Badger. He used to walk down the street (yes, all dogs roamed free in those days) so s l o w l y that his nickname was Lightning.

  36. For dog has the power and the goodness to render us speechless with aww for ever and ever

  37. Guessing he is being sarcastic.

  38. Dog Gone Cute If you ask me… and even if you don’t ask me. 🙂

  39. Molly McButter maybe the best ever name for a basset hound.

  40. Madame X says:

    My aunt and uncle had a Basset too – his name was Taboo,

    Baroo, Taboo?

  41. skippymom says:

    Profound Philosophical Question Of The Day:
    If a basset hound carries a big flower in his mouth and no one asks KittyAdventures about it, is it still cute?

  42. skippymom says:

    That’s strange–I can ONLY work if I have a picture of a flamenco-dancing basset hound in my head.

  43. Lovely velvety schnozzle!

  44. Lewis n' Clark says:

    “dog jowl enthusiast” – I have GOT to find a way to use that phrase today

  45. HEhehehehe!

  46. Fird Birfle says:

    (at times, I LOVE this joint.)

  47. Fird Birfle says:

    GET IN LINE, lady!!!!!11!!!

  48. Fird Birfle says:

    @ HP:

    Most astute point. I commend ye.

  49. Fird Birfle says:

    Per Richard Nixon: “Sock it, to ME?????”

  50. Fird Birfle says:

    @ [my hero] Skippymom:
    (Me no unnerstand that’un….eez Inside Yolk?)

  51. tracylee says:

    that was my grandmother’s favorite hymn, and I can’t hear it at all without my eyes leaking a little (a lot, actually)… mentally replacing it with this instead may just be the finger in the dike so I can hold it in! yay! 😀

  52. Platypeople?

  53. skippymom says:

    (hands hanky to tracy, gives her “there, there” pat on shoulder)

  54. skippymom says:


  55. victoreia says:

    I’m waiting for my poem now….

  56. Well every body poops you know!

  57. See my comment previous to her comment.

  58. skippymom says:

    One of my favorite books.

  59. That’s just what Jo Anne Worley said about Henry Gibson.

    (Well, it made Goldie Hawn giggle.)

  60. Also, guess what the H in my initials stands for? I’m going to bookmark this thread for all the times I feel unappreciated, so I can pretend it’s about me.

  61. But Skippymom, of course you can work with a picture of a flamenco dancing basset hound in your head. It’s difficult, but possible. But if you can work with an actual flamenco dancing basset hound in your head . . . that’s something.

  62. ashagato says:

    you guys rock! i laughed more and more with each addition to the prayer…

    and what an awesome pup!

  63. ashagato says:

    no doubt. she created our senses of humor!

  64. My uncle Frank’s Basset hound was named Flash! 😀

  65. Fird Birfle says:

    Ah, SO deska!!! Gracias!!!

  66. Fird Birfle says:

    well, skippymom, on this trip over to the computer lab in my apt bldg, I didn’t carry headphones/ earbuds/ earplug thinggies …. If no one else (Here’s lookin’ atchew, Theresa?) handles the research by about lunchtime on Thurs., I’ll check it out then (gotta doctor’s appt in the am)

  67. Fird Birfle says:

    oops, I meant to direct that reply to Victoreia
    *blushes and kicks YET ANOTHER dirt clod in embarrassment (sp)*

  68. Fird Birfle says:

    But NOT from The Beatles.

  69. Cute pics, but Nat’l Geo has the most BORING hovertexts…just sayin’

  70. April's NaNa says:

    Did you hear about the “dislexic” agnostic who developed insomnia? Bahdum-bump: He stayed awake all night wondering if there is a Dog!

  71. Oh, basset hounds. You melt my heart into puddles. I just want to smooooooooosh your little floppy faces and ears and cover them with kisses and loves! And the flower… just… my heart, it is mush!

    I am pretty sure if Howard were human, he would be a gentleman caller with a bicycle built for two in the 1920s.

  72. bob drummond says:

    This reminds me, Today is my 32nd wedding anniversary . I better do something special for Marlene- or I’ll pay for later on!

  73. A greeting card company needs to see this!

  74. Space Cowgirl says:

    Of course Dog loves you! Dogs love everyone.

    I’m not usually a dog person, but this pic is precious.

  75. But “Good Families Don’t.”


    (One of my favorite authors, except for the horrible, awful, creepy “Love You Forever.” *gag*)

  76. There are few things in life that will make my head explode. This is one of those things.

  77. Rooanne says:

    Hey! The other day I met a basset hound named Petunia, who was decked out with sparkly pink nail polish and a halter to match.

  78. …do they wobble to and fro, can you tie ‘e in a knot, can you tie ’em in a bow, can you whop ’em over your shoulder like a Continental soldier, do your ears. hang. low.

  79. and their new hit song, “i wanna hold your leash”
