How to decorate your home with basset hounds

Step One: Use basset hound drool to stick up wallpaper…

Actually, the title of this post does not refer to the practice of allowing your basset hound to assist with the painting and decorating (Henry Basset, I’m looking at you) but to the much saner idea of filling your home with as many basset hound themed knick-knacks as possible.

To that end, I have found some available-in-the-shops-now items that you might wish to put on your Christmas list or (who am I kidding) buy straight away.

Remember to use to send some much needed pennies to BRNGB – all of the items below qualify. If you haven’t already signed up, you’ll find a handy banner over there on the right (or below, if you’re on a mobile) which you can click to do so.

For the living room…

Basset hound cushion

This cushion has the slobbery end of the basset on one side and the waggy end on the other, so best to buy two so you can display as shown. At £35 per cushion, it’s a bit pricey, but it’s so stylish that the cost is entirely justified don’t you think?

For the dining room…

Basset hound placemat

This fabulous placemat can be personalised – with the name of your hound, perhaps? – and you can also get a matching coaster (and serving tray, and mug, and cushion, and….). Placemats cost £14.50 each.

For the kitchen…

Basset hound treat jar

Isn’t this perfect? It’s just a pity they ship from the US (unless you’re reading this in the US, that is). The jar costs £10.64 at time of writing and shipping is £15 but maybe if you ordered more than one, it would work out cheaper. I think you’ll find you need one each for tea, coffee and sugar, plus two or three for tasty basset noms…

For the bedroom…

Basset hound table lamp

I’m only 96% certain this isn’t a dachshund. Hmm. This basset hound table lamp is a must for any discerning hound owner. Only £55 from good old M&S.

For anywhere…

BRNGB calendar

This one’s a no-brainer! No home would be complete without this gracing its walls. The 2016 BRNGB calendar is available now and features a gorgeous rescue hound for each month. Only £8.50 from the BRNGB shop!
