(middle pic is Mr Potsblog with his 2 labs and cute little beagle, bottom 2 pics are a pug ornament and a basset mug by Gary Rith)
I have a nice customer in Las Vegas with 6 basset hounds (forget who she was, I will start keeping records in 2008) who asked about basset hounds on pots. I grew up with 3 of them. They are basically a beagle stretched out and shortened in different ways. Whereas a beagle, or my labs, are beautiful and well-proportioned creatures, with a handsome athletic shape, basset hounds are kind of funny looking. Ditto the pugs my sister has.
BUT, I am willing to try things and have a good time, esp. if someting is funny, so I would call this my first successfull pug item, and also my first successful basset item.
