He Ran Faster than a Steam Train over the Frozen Lake
(Barrie Ontario Canada)
I recently adopted a 3 year old bassett hound without knowing much about them - save for the fact that "Jaws" is so cute it's insane.
On Christmas Day the lake across from our home was finally frozen. We brought our lazy, dazy boy for a walk on the big lake. Well, imagine our surprise when he took off with what seemed like super warp speed across the lake. His "lazy look" is very deceptive. Those dogs can MOVE!
I think his paws are somewhat delicate to cold temperatures though because he was licking his paws a lot afterward. I'm going to look into getting him some booties and figure out the best course of action.
