An afternoon with the hounds

Out for our weekly trek with the hounds allowing us to visit the scenic countryside in St. Louis and St. Charles counties. Basset Hounds are bred to hunt rabbits and other small animals. The hounds are low to the ground and very powerful allowing them to move in and out of brush with ease. They unexpectedly disappear and then reappear from the hedgerow down the road. The rabbits always give the Bassets a good run but outsmart them in the end.
