It may not surprise you that at one time I had a bit of an eBay problem. Well, “problem” is a strong word. Then again, maybe not. I decided to buy a few vintage Basset Hound collectibles.
Turns out eBay has all kinds of Cheap Basset Crap, I mean Cherished Basset Collectibles. There are planters, cookie jars, banks, bottles, just about anything you can imagine. And a few you probably can’t.
For some reason, booze and Bassets seem to go together. Since all my dogs are named after liquor, I can relate. This is a bottle (the glove on top is the cork) and it’s titled “How Dry I Am.” Not too sure what that has to do with a losing fighter. Don’t drink and punch?
I guess if you couldn’t find a Saint Bernard…but what about the deep snow? Bassets are vertically challenged (or as we owners prefer to put it, extremely grounded). Another bottle (the nose is the cork).
The top three Bassets are the top of this box. You’ve seen the video of the Bassets coming out of the doghouse, haven’t you?
You get the idea. Now the whole CBC collection is getting boxed up and going to Daphneyland, the Basset Ranch up north of Los Angeles, Dawn Smith has 60+ rescued Bassets looking for homes. I’m getting one this weekend. And leaving my CBC days behind. Dawn will sell the crap, I mean collectibles, to benefit the homeless hounds. I’m done with buying Basset stuff on eBay.
Because I’m much too busy buying fabric.
