Yule tidings and canine Christmas carolers

Technically, Basset Hounds aren't hibernating creatures. But, biology be damned, Lord Bassington-Bassington is prepared to make a good try at it!

As a result of this, it will be difficult to get His Lordship to dictate the Chronicles (let sleeping Hounds lie, and all that), so the Chronicles will be dormant ‘till the New Year.

In the meantime need the assistance of you, dear reader. We here at Bassington Manor are trying to find out which canine Christmas carolers to hire to provide appropriate entertainment here during the Yuletide. Which should we go for? Please help us decide by voting in our canine Christmas caroler poll, to the left.

We'd also be thankful for an explanation as to why you voted the way you did; please use the comment space for this.

Soul Brother Basset


MC Hound


Hound Dog Duo


Merry Yuletide, Christmas, Hanuka or whatever holiday you prefer to celebrate!

  1. For some reason I think the vote of Lady Mju should weigh at least twice as much as that of other voters. Is it unjust?

    I went for the first one for purely visual and aural reasons.

  2. Should be: and not aural reasons.

  3. As Lady Mju would have to share Bassington Manor with some of these carollers, her vote should certainly be given more weight, yes.

  4. I'd do for the duo. More Bassett, and there's nothing wrong with a traditional christmas medley.

  7. Kein Jodlhunde, but I sink I'll vote for the Basset Duo. More bang for bucks and one said and beside they were the cutest ones.

  8. I'm actually surprised that things as horrible as these even exists. I guess it says something abour our society, something Spenglerian.

  9. My vote goes to the dynamic duo. Singing is always most fun in the company of others/bassets.

  10. I would have voted for Snoopy, even though I know he is not a basset.

  11. Snoopy is cute enough to be a basset! But it's important to remember the distinctions between beagles (like Snoopy) and bassets, as Hans B.K. Günther, the infamous “Bassen-Günther” of the Institut für Bassenforschung, reminded us.

  12. Soul Brother. He's got style, he's got ears. Although Jingle Cats would clearly left them all in shreds, given half a chance.

  13. Soul Brother. Although potentially annoying because of length, the music is reasonably yule-tide stupid. In addition, the ears are just magnificent.

  15. Oh yes, So-bro is doing great! Jingle Cats will be pleased.

  16. I voted for Soul Brother Basset, too! While all bassets are good at singing, Soul Brother is in a class of his own!
