    It’s BASSET HOUND… only one T.

    That’s ok, didn’t spell Lhasa Apsos correctly either! Perhaps someone with at least a minimal interest in dogs to write this would have been a good idea. Not to mention that it is on my Yahoo home page TODAY, March 7, 2011, almost a month after the show so announcing its “beginning” is lame.
