Dan The Basset Hound
Here is a picture of Dan. Dan as you can probably tell is a Basset Hound. We see Dan almost every time we go to the dog park. Dan is a really good dog with an owner that really loves him. Dan plays with most dogs and runs around barking in his deep basset hound voice.
Dan has some really silly habits. I think it is because he is a scent hound he likes to roll around in poop more than your average dog to bring the scent back to his pack. One time Lucy really let one go. Great Danes are a pretty big dog and with big dogs come big messes. Sorry for getting a little graphic but it is a funny story. Remember I said Dan likes to roll around in poop. You know where this one is going. He was there quicker than anyone could get there and sure enough he was sure able to carry that scent around for a while.
The funny part of the story was he turned around to his owner, ran up to her and sat up like only a basset hound can. They sit on their butt with their long body vertical in the air. I do not think I have ever seen a dog more proud of himself. He sat there giving that doggie smile, wagging his tail like crazy.
I know this goes without saying but it was a while before his owner was able to get the stuff off and into the car.
