Mr. Morgan

The November 27 1953 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this picture of a celebrity dog.


A little digging revealed that Mr. Morgan’s full name was J. J. Morgan. He was a basset hound who appeared on TV shows in the early 1950s, including The Garry Moore Show. He was famous enough that somebody made a plush toy of him.

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary uses Morgan as an example in their definition of basset hound. And Mashable has a number of pictures of the celebrity canine.
