The protector of things...

99 wanted to spend the last couple of weeks of being 9 years old by walking around through rolling meadows.  Who am I to argue with a face like this?

I think this is 99 doing her 'Blue Steel.'  They teach you that at the Zoolander School of Modeling.


Hello? It's my Birthday Month!

I can't believe it!  On October 29, Ch. Classic Arizona Speedster (that's 99's real name, the "Ch." in front basically means 'supermodel') is going to be 10 years old.


10!  Can you believe it?  Supermodel work!

In case you hadn't noticed, The Bassetlounge is built upon sarcasm.  But with a face like this even I can't think of anything satirical to say.  99 is a beauty, inside and out.


It's all about the angles, baby...

When people ask me to give them tips on photography I tell them the two most important things are:

1. Find a basset hound

2. Photograph them from good angles so they feel pretty.

That's really all there is to it.   For example, from the front Venus looks like a typical Basset cheerleader, ready to bust into a performance at your local high school football game.  I'm talking homecoming queen material.


Tailgating is hard work

Need I say more?


Running of the Bulls

A lot of people forward photos of basset hounds running to me on the internets.  I find this fascinating.  You see, it's not easy to capture a basset hound running because they don't do it too often.  Unless you live next door to a man made out of Velveeta, then I bet they would run a lot to try to eat your neighbor.  That could get embarrassing at neighborhood bbq's, always having to apologize to your Velveeta neighbor that your dogs try to eat him whenever he takes the recycling out to the curb.

However difficult it may be, it is not impossible. Sorry Velveeta neighbor, but in the immortal words of Bruce Dickinson (yes, THE Bruce Dickinson,) "don't fear the reaper" :
