Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted January 28, 2016
I don't know why Basset Hounds have such large ears but it is absolutely adorable. The dog I worked with was extremely well-balanced and friendly, but not overly exuberant. He was happy to get a pet and a bit of a cuddle but he didn't run you down right through the door. He always seemed a bit dopey and reminded me of the Basset Hound in the Aristocats. I wonder if they're all like that. He was such a sweetheart and a gem to be around, and though he sometimes didn't follow directions I often wondered if it was because he couldn't hear them.
