Martin & Jolene's Betsy "nothing's going to disturb her."
Here's Vera - yes she also has a Basset, Margot - trying to get Rodney to walk the ramp.
"Bassets may be happy to walk up a ramp into the back of our Land Rover but not him. Under no circumstances was he lowering himself by walking up himself."
Is there anything sadder than a sick Basset? (This is Guy's Alice after removal of a growth. How long before that bandage is off?)
From Mandy Thomas (Callington)
Three in a bed: Guy's Maude, Alice and Jessica
Harry (Tanner) showing off. (Where's Aintree?)
One of the "Bristol Five"
Ah . . . . (from Sam Morgan)
Guy & Sarah's Alice "Worm's eye view" (Shouldn't that
be Bonio eye's view?)
"Look what I've caught": Rebecca Stanton's Morse, so proud. Who needs a rod?
Mark's Bazz on her 12th birthday.
Elsewhere on this website you'll see Mark's Mabel in the pilot's seat of his plane, possibly showing Georgie his best friend how easy it is. Here we see her driving a Transit – don't want to interfere but I think she should have both paws on the wheel – and below is her obvious next step up to Fast Jets.
"Hurry up: I can't stay like this for ever" This is
Jemima one of our very special hounds.
And Jemima again: possibly the only Basset to ever scale
Clisham on Harris (nearly 3000ft)
Bassets can walk. Here's Samantha Yarwood's Shirley nearly at the top of Ben Nevis, rather higher than mine above.
Symmetry: Matilda and Miss Moppet, both Brackenacres
from Jim & Marianne Nixon
"Sherlock" aka known as Margot (Vera's lovely hound)
We used to have a lovely garden . . .
From Iris Ware at Liverpool: a correspondent, and
probably not a walker we'll see much of . . .
Yes, Dearie, they are Bassets (Griffon)
give up. Don't ask me. I've got no idea why Harry (the Humper) is dressed up like a turtle. Some Basset fancy dress party I suppose. Ask James. And the one below, though perhaps this is after The Party. Exhausting things these fancy dress dos.
Those who walked with us on Dartmoor – or who have
seen the video – may remember that Millie here was
expecting pups. Regrettably only two, so the new kitchen
has shrunk to a downstars loo. Anyway, as you can see
Mother and babies are doing well.

(Are there no limits?
Love, cruelty or what? If only they could talk.
Our new arrival: Miss Moppet and Matilda
Ditto: why do we do it? Any complaints from animal welfare please direct to Alison
Freda the Fearless cyclist
Now what have we here? The ultimate lazy hound? Owners too tired to "give their dog a run?" We are assured - by Phillipa and Gareth - that Freda (that's the hound) loves being towed around behind their bikes. Can't get saddle sore anyway.
Guy & Sarah's lovely three. The no. plate is supposed to spell "SHORTEY": (I couldn't work it out either).
Ann & Emile Margaritis' Freddie who died Feb 2011
Walter - nearly asleep -and Daisy, Jacquie and Mike's pair after a hard day on the river.
A reminder of the Christmas snow 2010: my
Miss Moppet and Matilda loved it.
My Matilda negotiating a stile on the Mendips.
Yes, it's a pineapple. Hunted down, trapped, killed –
and regrettably eaten, by Bob, owned by the Foot Family from Salisbury. Thank goodness no photo exists of
the mess next day. Well it's easier than rabbits.
Here's another pic (below) of 40kgs Fred (Marsland)
shown on Home Page. (Mine chase these things,
Mike & Jackie (from Exmouth) have just returned from Oz. They call this "Jet lagged". (And not a dry eye in the house)
Here's another pic of their two lovely hounds:
Just good friends"
We have got two beds, honest.
