Rufus Hound

Funny man

Declaring himself the sort of chap who ‘smells pleasant and often wears a suit, but is happier not to’, this moustachio’d chancer has stayed at some of the planet’s finest hotels. Hound has tried most things, including getting married to his Mrs Smith in the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada, but he claims perennial joy is found in dark rum and dark rooms. A Smith hotel, claims the titular mutt, is like Aladdin’s lamp: ‘Unique, exquisitely crafted and inhabited by those whose job, seemingly, is to grant your every wish.’
