Jeep Cochran Has Made A Lifelong Pursuit Of The Perfect Basset Hound

Years of evolution have gone into creating the Calf Pasture Bassets.

My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind,
So flewed, so sanded; and their heads are hung
With ears that sweep away the morning dew;
Crook-kneed, and dew-lapped like Thessalian bulls;
Slow in pursuit, but matched in mouth like bells,
Each under each.
                         -William Shakespeare
