The Day after the Fair
Detail from the cartoon, "The Day after the Fair."  Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, LC-USZ62-89726.

The hounds became a fixture in cartoon representations of Zachary Taylor. Here, presidential candidate Taylor is pursued by bloodhounds in this 1848 pro-Democratic satire predicting that the Whig candidate will lose the upcoming election. Recalling the dogs' place of origin, a nervous Taylor exclaims, "When Cuba is Annexed I hope these Foreigners will no longer be imported to annoy the 'Natives' in this way."
