This is a bit of a late post :)
I’ve always dreamed of meeting and photographing Basset Hounds. Two Sundays ago, I had the privilege of meeting not 1, but 3 gorgeous Basset Hounds!
Basset Hounds, are known as the “clowns of the dog world” for their intelligence and great sense of humour.
I’m not sure about the clowns bit, but the trio Bosco (12 years), Hugo (3 years and 8 months), and Dora (7 months) are most certainly humourous, intelligent, well manered, good temper, all so cuddly and they love their treats.
When we first met, the trio greeted me: Hello there! Have you got treats? Let’s play!
Ah so friendly! They worked hard for food only - now is that smart. These little guys have charming big, big personalities. The word ‘cute’ is an understatement. They are so regal.
Bosco, the oldest of the trio, even though he doesn’t do much running these days, loves to hang out at the park with his human Mum and Dad and his two other younger Basset Hound siblings. He will take every opportunity to enjoy the breeze and have a little nap while Hugo and Dora romp about in the park and meet other dogs to play with. There’s much flying ears, snouts nudging you for more treats, slobbering, quick steps with those short legs and “chatting” (low murmuring whines). So happy!
I love this family. I love that there’s lots of love, cuddles and Basset Hound giggles (though you can’t hear them but you certainly can see it on their faces). And I love how each of them finds their special spot at the back of the car waiting to be driven home! I had so much fun that I wanted to go home with this family! I now think everyone should at least meet a Basset Hound in their lives (- better still, live with one, adopt one, foster one.) To this family of Basset Hounds: you’ll always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for sharing such a special Sunday afternoon with me.
