This site is devoted to all our furry four legged friends, especially the
Basset Hound. In that case, our four short legged friends! What does a Basset
look like? Well, if you've seen one, you probably will never forget it! Bassets
are typically about 15 inches in height, and weigh between 50 - 80 pounds as
adults. They have very, very long ears and can be found in a wide variety of
colors. They are basically big dogs on short legs!
Skittles (pictured above) was born on August 5, 1990 near Lodi, Ohio. She was
the only female in a litter of 5. Since we wanted a female, she was the one we
picked. Her brothers were all very handsome, though. Skittles is a considered a
red and white Basset Hound. After six years, she is now sort or red, white and
gray (around the face)! She is by far, the most interesting dog we have ever
UPDATE: I am sad to report that on November 18, 2001, my beloved Skittles died from bloat.I am grateful for the eleven years that I had with her...she will be dearly missed...
