Imma a big fan of basset hounds because those ears. They're long, and feel like velvet. HAL, in particular, is one of my favorite hounds I stalk on the Internet.

Don't let the title fool you - this hound is anything but lazy! And it's been a big year for HAL - who lives in Tokyo, Japan. He did a ton of exciting things in 2013:


1. Hat Wearing


2. UFO Fighting


3. Flower Smelling

I look forward to another full year of basset-y HAL adventures. You can check out HAL's site, here.
