|We did google it and that name Jason popped up. There might be another one that did commercials also. This is what we found.
"How did my Basset Hound become the Hush Puppies' mascot? That's the question I get asked every time someone learns that my dog, Jason (right), was selected for the now famous series of print and video ads. Most people don't believe it until I dig out my scrapbook (view it here) and show them the behind-the-scenes photographs taken during the photo sessions. After flipping through the album's pages, they're usually convinced that they met the guy who owned "The Hush Puppy Dog".
To learn the full story, check out the links below. For some background about Jason, start with "Who is this dog, anyway?" Next read the trade article There's Nothing Like a Dog. It describes why Jason was selected to be the Hush Puppies model, what it's like to work with a dog in front of the camera, and the ad industries' reaction to a non-traditional "spokes-dog.""
