Such a great picture and a reminder of the chunky goodness that is the Basset Hound. No other dog comes close to being the wonderful oddball that is the basset. Jack rabbity back feet, the plate-sized front feet, long velvety ears and a thumpy tail, the folds of skin, the freckles and colour splashes, the adorable jowls, the Churchillian stoutness… but most of all the personalities. I have never met a basset that lacked confidence and didn’t know with absolute certainty its place in this world.
le junque, mais oui
I think Lesley pretty much nailed it.
Yes, after Lesley @ 1, not much left to say.
Except, thank you Bogg family, for sharing Wembley and Fenway with us. And another Thursday night is wrapped up.
Gotta love Teddy’s comment too.
Oui tres bon!
le junquey goodness!
Mein Gott, that is quite a substantial Schwanzstucker…
What a Fine Young Dog!
Is that a Chia® Basset?
I was thinking he needs some type of support garment for that….
You really did nail my boys on the head…so to speak. And Wembley is the happiest, most easy going, most “dog-dog” we have ever had. He goes through life truly taking it one day at a time. And he’s cute as all get out!!!
I do believe that is larger than my ex-husband’s!
No wonder he sleeps a lot. Dragging that schlong around can be quite tiring.
I do say, Wembley bears more than a passing resemblance to a certain English butler. Of course, I’ve never seen Carson’s *ahem* equipment, so I can’t comment on those similarities.
For the experiment to be a success, all of the body parts must be enlarged
“Frankly my Dear, I don’t have to give a damn.“
I love it when The Lady Bogg drops in to our crude conversation to grace us with her presence! We are not worthy, madame.
My bassets were absolutely certain that their place was the couch.
Obviously a chia dog, carrying his summertime around with him, because it’s totally freezing out and no herbaceous greenery can live out there! QED
And who braved the coldest winter in 14 years to haul home the best looking feller in the litter (Mo’s favorite son)? And now look at him, he’s a fine figure of a dog, and I’m glad he’s so well loved and loving.
Thanks for all the Thursdays!
He’s looking rather more quizzical than menacing in that shot.
if he gets any bigger, you’ll have to change his breed from basset to holstein.
