Dean the basset was born in southern Ontario on a snowy Saturday night in February 2014. That month the weather was too cold to stay outside for very long so he quickly developed an affinity for ordering pizza, lying on the couch and watching TV. After binging on Netflix for two months he stepped outside again into the warmer weather and was elated to discover sticks and squirrels. Having no one to share this joy with, he adopted two needy humans who he raises as his own. Together they opened social media accounts to chronicle Dean’s journeys and share his life and wisdom with the world.
