||HOWLBERT HOUND (GS4803)
Hound is one of those "uncertain"
breeds of dogs which are unlikely to win awards
at dog shows (or even be admitted). He has
claimed, at times to be both a Russian Wolfhound
and a Shetland Sheepdog (but we suspect that he
is a cross between an Irish Sitter and a Lapso
Fatso). Frustrated at being a ballerina
(too many legs), he now bides his time by chasing
cats up trees (which he considers great sport).
Dressed in a snappy sportshirt, khaki slacks and
tennies, his shades are never far away. A rod
that can be easily switched from his left hand to
his right paw... uh, hand, allows swift and
decisive gestures, as well as friendly waving at
Ken says that he's a Golden
Retriever but we think he is more likely a Golden
Loser. He trained for years to be a Seeing Eye
Dog and then was fired when he lost his first
client (in the park, he thinks). He then went to
work for the Municipal Utility District as a gas
leak detector in the city sewer system but was
terminated after getting lost the first day
(because it's hard to see a map down there). He's
currently doing much better at the Motorcycle
Shop Botique where he greets customers while
modeling the latest in motorcycle wear.
Kennelworth Hound stands 28 inches tall and has
an arm rod that can be attached to either hand.
Even when he was a little
bunny, Stew thought he was the unluckiest rabbit
alive. After all, he reasoned, if he were really
lucky, he wouldn't have been born a rabbit at
all. He'd have been a hippopotamus or something
neat like that. To improve his luck, he started
wearing a "lucky" horseshoe tied on a
string around his neck. Of course, when he went
swimming, he sank right to the bottom like an
anchor. He claims that the fact he's still alive
is proof that the horseshoe works. Stew has an
arm rod that can be attached to either hand.
here is one of the nicest, most friendly
alligators you would ever want to know and it's
unfortunate that he's currently unemployed. He
was "let go" from his job as a
"Greeter" at Mega Mart because he
scared the customers away when he smiled. He was
laid off as a Balloon Inflator at children's
birthday parties due to "excess
poppage." He couldn't even sell brushes
door-to-door without people screaming, fainting
and slamming their doors. Because of his large
array of shining teeth, he has decided to send
his resume to a toothpaste company hoping to be
hired as a brushing consultant. Gordon is 28
inches tall and comes with a detachable arm rod.
He is also available wearing the same shirt with
"Florida" on the front (GS4820B).
Do you remember
the story about the boy who told so many wild and
exaggerated stories that he turned into a Shaggy
Dog? No? Why there were even a couple of movies
made about this fellow. Honest. He's 28 inches
tall and has rod that may be clipped to either
arm for realistic movement.
It has long been
said that "Dog is Man's Best Friend"
but we think that the reverse may not be true,
especially considering these three "best
friends." On the left we have Howlbert
Hound (GS4803), then Dashing
Dalmatian Firedog (GS4804) and Flea-Fe
Poodle (GS4805) on the right. All are 28
inches tall and have movable arm rods.
nomads of the desert, entertainers, musicians...

clothing and sunglasses... to say nothing about
their sun block lotion with aloe. Each stands 28
inches tall and comes complete with a clip-on arm
rod and sturdy sandals. At the far left is Meshach
Camel (GS4814). In the middle (above) is
Abednego Donkey (GS4815) and on

Yes, the Baboon has a bald red bottom but we are
far too dignified here to display it!
