    Awwww!!! And now I know why my Basset looks so very different than the more common Bassets we see around here. He's Hunting bred!!! I wondered why he was a tad taller, leaner, and with shorter ears. Now I know *lol* All those pics from KarenLMyers.org show hounds that look JUST like him.

    I got a chance to go out with Jeff and the Foxboro Foothounds. My lord was it fun! They are bassets but a much different type than you would see as a bet. Lighter and faster but they still make me giggle when they run. We had a great time hunting on foot and chasing some rabbits.

    Ah, the Tewksbury Bassets story! Thanks for remembering Kem and Pen! I'll try to dig it up and repost. RAR probably has a copy, if I don't.

    Our first basset was more like this group:

    http://basset-artesien-normand.wifeo.com/photos.php

    Track, could that dog track!!! I would take her out riding with me, how people stay up with the bassets on foot I don't know. She was FAST!!!! And deer were her favorite game (not that she was fast enough to keep up with the deer).

    One day I had her out with me on the trails, she ran off after deer where I could not follow with the horse. When she lost the deer, she started tracking my horse. I just watched her, nose to the ground following the exact path I had just taken. We could never lose that dog. She knew exactly how to get back home or back to the barn if I had her out with me. I miss being able to take her on the trails, she died at the ripe old age of 15.

    Well of course! Rita Mae has some of our Bassets including one of my favorite ones, Outlaw! She's a super lady.
