The hilarious cartoon sensation comes to books in the first volume of strips and cartoons which will confirm Hackman as the world’s most adorable Dog in a Bucket.
Hackman the spaniel is paranoid, mixed-up and stressed. Constant scratching at his ears has left him condemned to live with a bucket on his head. He lives in a world where Stuff Happens at every lamppost – in fact, it’s amazing he hasn’t ended up at the dog pound. Join the frolics and adventures of ‘Hack’ with his best chum Buddy, his other canine friends Spencer, Growler Fowler and Ratso, and the love of his life FiFi, who is so chic she wears a different coloured bucket every day.
Fortunately for Hackman, he has human friends, too, including the pet psychiatrist, Chuck Brandon, who helps sort out his problems. As Hackman discovers from regular sessions of regression therapy, life’s been a bitch for bucket-wearing dogs for centuries. Although the therapy is meant to alleviate stress, it only enhances it for poor Hackman!
Hackman’s adventures include bizarre night-time visits from Rex, the Sirius space alien, who also has a bucket on his head and thinks Hackman must therefore be a world leader. These secret Rex Files are included in this first volume of strips and cartoons.

Bill Houston has worked as a commercial artist and designer for many years and has a finely-tuned gift for character creation with humorous annotations. He was inspired to create Hackman when he saw a cute-looking dog wearing a bucket collar from a vet’s in Wakefield. That one doodle sat in his notebook for years until he recently came across it again and the idea for Hackman was born.
