I've got a lab and two basset hounds. I grew up with bassets my whole life and have always loved them, but my wife always liked labs so we got one of those too. Funny thing is, the basset we got for me is attached to my wife's hip, and the lab and I are inseparable. Funny how all that works.
Anyway, this is Maggie. We rescued her from a Lab rescue after her mom was dropped off with a litter of puppies. She's labeled as a Charcoal lab. She's sort of got a silver hue to her coat, so we always get a lot of compliments and questions about what type of dog she is.
Here's our first basset, Daisy Mae. She's a hellion, nothing but trouble, but in a good way. I left her on the porch for 2 minutes and then snapped a pic through the door window.
This is our new basset, Louie, on his way home from getting his nuts clipped. We had just picked him up from a rescue shelter because he was scheduled to be put down the next day. He weighed about 38 pounds when we got him with broken ribs and a broken front paw. We think his previous owner never fed him and was beating him prior to him escaping from wherever. We've had him about a month now and he's up to 47 pounds. He doesn't look as thin as he does in this picture. He's a great dog, still a puppy (maybe a year old).
I'm with Shred, I enjoy the company of dogs more than I do people.
