Year of the Dog Day 224

I had to take the car into the garage this morning and fortunately as me and Ethan  were waiting outside we spotted two absolutely gorgeous Basset Hounds walking on the other side of the road. I totally love Basset Hounds so I couldn’t miss out on going to say hello! Alfie and Bill are both wonderful friendly girls (they have boys names but they are both girls!). It was pretty difficult getting the picture today, not really because the dogs wouldn’t keep still but because Ethan wouldn’t! Alfie and Bill also live with a Chihuahua, even though the Chihuahua is small she’s top dog in the house! Alfie and Bill are both the same age but are from different litters.

Gorgeous Bill and Alfie!

Year of the Dog Day 178

I went for a walk at lunchtime today and on my way back to work I spotted an amazing dog on the other side of the road, so as soon as it was safe I ran across the road! Snoop is a cross between a Dachshund and Basset Hound; what a great combination! Snoop is a very friendly boy and he’s also very chatty, he talked the whole time I was there! Snoop really loves human company, he gets anxious if he’s on his own so he goes to work with his humans every day, lucky boy! Snoop loves human company so much he thinks he is human! He has a dog bed which he won’t use, instead he sleeps in one of his humans beds!

Gorgeous Snoop!

Year of the Dog Day 163

I’ve been travelling today and had hopes that I would spot a nice dog at the service station, I was in luck! I spotted two really cute dogs, a Basset Hound and another dog I didn’t recognise! Although they look completely different in turns out that they are both a type of Basset Hound! Hermione is a Basset Griffon Vendeen. I hadn’t heard of the breed but Hermione’s human daddy informed me that they’re very rare with only a handful of breeders in the country. They both make a really cute duo, I don’t think they stopped wagging their tails! They get lots of attention, everyone wants to stop to stroke them and who can blame people, Basset Hounds are amazing! I genuinely didn’t stop smiling when I was looking through the photos I took of them, they’re both brilliant!

Gorgeous Daphne and Hermione!
