Default An addiction to short-legged, long-eared hound dogs!

A whole third of the people I follow on Instagram - and I'm following 93 people - are Basset owners. Just a little over that are dog owners in general.

Hardly any of my friends back home have even met Olive, yet I write about her and post photos of her so often that any time someone finds a meme of a Basset Hound, it is either posted to my wall or I am tagged in it.

These have all been posted to my wall:

My friend found this cutie on Craigslist and had to let me know. What a tease, huh?

I also sent Olive's pic in to upsidedowndogs.com when she was little and in May they posted it.
Olive the Basset Hound - Funny Pictures of Puppy Dogs Upside Down

Just found out that from upsidedowndogs, it got sent here:
http://www.aplacetolovedogs.com/2012...ng/1486639820/
...and people are pinning it, tweeting it and liking it all over the place! Squeee!

Not to mention, I did name my blog after her...

I think I'm becoming Basset-obsessed. Is this normal or should I seek help?

Nearly all of my Facebook friends have bassets - in fact, if you try to friend me and I don't know you, and you don't have any indication of a basset in your profile or pictures, I don't accept.

Well, I happen to have multiple FB photo albums totally dedicated to Olive! My favorite is titled "A Face Only A Mother Could Love" :P har har har

I've said it before but I've had dogs all my life and never been so enamored of one particular breed until I got a basset. I am totally a basset person now, and all my friends and co-workers do the same thing in sending and telling me stuff about hounds. There is just something about them isn't there

That cracked me up when I downloaded it onto the computer to post here.

It's a common mistake, after all. Silly geese!

LOL LOL how many times have we said no they aren't Beagles and no they aren't Sausage Dogs... Once you're addicted there really isn't anything close to our wonderful Bassets

I have yet to find a cure for my basset obsession. The majority of my FB friends are basset people too, and I pretty much only use my page to post pictures of the hounds. I'm sure the few non-basset people (and probably even the basset people, LOL) get really sick of seeing my floppy dogs...but then, they are already well aware that I'm beyond help anyway.
