Rock and Roll Bassets

Bono and Edgee The Bowzer Hounds

Bono and Edgee The Bowzer Hounds

My son wanted a basset hound so we found a litter to choose from. My son said we need two so the one wouldn't get lonely. Good choice. They love to play fight. He named them after a rock band group called U2. Bono and The Edge. Bono is the lead singer and The Edge is the lead guitarist. We named them on the registration papers as "Bono was his name-o" and "The Butter Knife Edge of Black Creek". I call them my bowzer hounds. I call Bono "Bono" and Edge "Edgee" because he gets a little edgy sometimes over food and loving.

Someone said we should have named them Starky and Hutch. The picture tells it all. Bono is on the left and Edgee is on the right.

I love my bowzer hounds!

I have an 8 month old basset hound female. Her name is Hazel. She is the love and light of my life. She is so laid back, I sometimes worry about her. Good luck with your two. Absolutely adorable.

I love their names ('cause U2 is my favourite band). They are so gorgeous and so clean! Did you take this pic straight after a bath? Mine only manage to stay clean for a day or 2 afte a bath and then they smell like "hounds" again. I also have 2 Bassets (and 3 Dashchunds) and they are a handful. They are so stubborn and hard to train but they are also so loving and comical! Its like living with a bunch of clowns. My male Basset Basil, normally gives you those dumn looks like "what happened" with his one lip stuck in his teeth and we call this his "Elvis" look. And Shannon (the female) si so lazy its scary. Her favourite thing besides eating is sleeping. I love them so much!

So funny...
by: Virginia from just-basset-hounds

That's great, The Bowzer Hounds, I love it! What a great photo.

Isn't it funny how kids always want two ("so he won't be lonely" or "so he has a friend"). My daughter won a goldfish at a 4th of July carnival once and then we had to get another one. "So it would have a friend."

But, I think it's great that you have two Basset Hounds. I bet they have tons of fun together.

How old are they?
