"You ain't nothin' but a hound dog!"

That is good enough for me, you might say wearing this awesome t-shirt. How can you not love a floppy puppy like this!

The Old Hound Dog is an American Classic. This is one of our most beautiful, richly detailed illustrations.  This tee "Aged 4 dog years"! ; )

Hounds are American dogs. Our favorite, the droopy-eyed, floppy-eared, wrinkled everywhere --  smart, always capable of the hunt; howling at you, the moon... They want to be the center of attention and you just might be with this tee.

Here's Ellie Mae the Bloodhound singing with harmonica:

What is a hound?

Hounds are hunting dogs. They'll bury their bone in your couch cushion; they come in all shapes and sizes: Here are the hounds:

  • Afghan hound
  • Basset hound
  • Beagle
  • Bloodhound
  • Dachshund
  • Greyhound
  • Irish Wolfhound
  • Rhodesian Ridgeback
  • Whippet

There are sighthounds, who hunt by keeping their prey in sight. And scenthounds who track by scent. Many hounds are a combination of both. 

As per Wikipedia, "The Bloodhound is a large scent hound, originally bred for hunting deer, wild boar and, since the Middle Ages, for tracking people. Believed to be descended from hounds once kept at the Abbey of Saint-Hubert, Belgium, it is known to French speakers as le chien de Saint-Hubert..."

But back to the nothing but a...

"Hound Dog," is a twelve-bar blues song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It has been recorded over 250 times. The most famous version of course was by Elvis Presley, which sold 10 million.

It was  originally written for, and  recorded by,  Big Mama Thornton in 1952.  The song was for a women to sing about her wayward man.

Lieber told Rolling Stone magazine:

"We saw Big Mama and she knocked me cold. She looked like the biggest, baddest, saltiest chick you would ever see. And she was mean, a 'lady bear,' as they used to call 'em. She must have been 350 pounds, and she had all these scars all over her face" conveying words which could not be sung."

Later Elvis Presley saw Freddie Bell and the Bellboys sing a version of the song, and the rest as they say is rock and roll legend!

Okay, here's one more video, Bloodhound puppies singing a tune!
