   Leave a bone for Orville (ATB)

Snoreville, Mr. Poops, Stinky Lips, BooBoo, Blueberry, Lunkhead, Schmoopy

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog

Chasing squirrels and kitty sister Olivia, rolling on dead worms, sleeping in, walks, car rides, eating grass, howling at fire engines, and TREATS!

Getting his nails trimmed at the vet, people who don't want to pet him.

Favorite Toy:
Kitty sister Olivia, tennis balls, fuzzy squeakies, socks, and bones (which he rarely eats - he just buries them under Mom & Dad's pillows).

Favorite Food:
Loves everything, especially whatever people are eating! Oh, and Altoids - he loves to crunch them!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere there are people and smells!

Best Tricks:
Howling along with Mom & Dad.

Arrival Story:
Orville was surrendered at age 4 by his owners to a high-kill shelter. We found him on petfinder.com and fell in love! He has some marking issues, mostly when he gets bored, but he's the best dog we can imagine!

At 65 pounds, Orville is a big ol' Basset! He can often be seen tripping over his ears and front paws and giving sloppy kisses to little kids. He'll put up with having his ears cleaned, getting a bath, and getting his teeth brushed, but he puts on a good pout afterward!

Oh boy, I'm so excited! I've just opened my very own online store!!!

It's called The Howlin' Hound: Orville's Basset Goodies!!

Mom helped me make mousepads, mugs, stickers of all shapes, doggie-wear, tote bags, and more ... all adorned with Basset pictures and sayings! We've got items for those with tri-colors, red & whites, and solid reds, as well as items with a Basset silhouette for those who can't pick!

Proceeds from sales will go to Basset rescue groups, so they can continue to help the homeless houndies who are still waiting for their fur-ever families!

So, save up your money and head on over to www.cafepress.com/howlinhound!!
Buy lots and help the homeless houndies!!! Aaaarrrooooo!!!

P.S. Spread the word to all your Basset buddies, ok?
