I've sprinkled many pictures of my Basset Hound, Hunter, throughout the pages of this web site. But, I have many more to share. Here are some of my favorites...
About 5 months old - taken March 2002
As a puppy, his ears were extra-long and his feet were oversized. He used to trip over those ears as he ran in a clumsy manner with those big, front paws.
My 6 Month Old Basset Hound Puppy
I used to love the way he would lie on his tummy with his back legs sprawled out. He doesn't do that anymore.
A Lap Dog?
At 6 months old he barely fits on my lap. But, he thinks he's a lap dog. He used to fall asleep like that. Not anymore. As a full grown Basset Hound, he's not interested in sitting on my lap anymore, nor does he fit.
Trying to Enjoy the Snow
This Basset Hound picture was taken after a snow storm in February 2003. Poor Hunter! He has a hard time walking around in the deep snow with those short legs.
Napping With His Toys
Sweet Dreams! What else can I say. He's got the life. A Basset Hound's plan for the day - eat, sleep, play, and get as much attention as I can.
An Overweight Hound
Here's a picture of Hunter enjoying my daughter's birthday party. I don't know if you can tell but, he's overweight in this picture at 4 years old. My vet labeled him as chubby, meaning 5 pounds overweight. He was eating too much and not getting enough exercise. Of course, this wasn't his fault. We got him back down to a healthy weight by feeding him less and getting back into a routine of daily walks.
A Hound's Nose
My husband took this picture. When I saw it, I couldn't stop laughing!
I'm Looking Good!
In this June 2007 picture, Hunter shows off his slim / trim physique. No longer overweight, he's in better shape than I am!
This is only a subset of my favorite photos of a good natured hound dog (I have many more). I hope you've enjoyed this glimpse into Hunter's world.
