Out with her trusty hound

A lone woman with her trusty hound hiking through the woods. Actually she is part of the Gumbo Flats Gold Cup event where hounds show off their tracking skills. Today there are “12 couples” (24 Bassets) in field including Missouri’s Three Creek Basset Pack and Okaw Valley Foot Bassets from Ohio. Awards are given to […]

Dixie’s Portrait

I am working on my skills as a portrait photographer so I combined my interests: landscape photography and Basset Hounds and got this. Dixie is standing on an Adirondack Chair in an area overlooking Chesterfield Valley in St. Louis County. Dixie hates cameras and will not look at me. This was taken with a Nikon […]

Waiting for the judges

Two ladies showing off their Basset Hounds at a rural dog show in Weldon Spring, Missouri. The Bassets here will also show off their tracking skills in a competition pittingĀ  the Three Creek Bassets pack against the Okaw Valley pack, taking their handlers through creek beds, under barbwire fencing and up steep hills. It will […]

Ethel

Yesterday I posted a photo of Fred, a Basset Hound I helped rescue last summer. Here is his sister Ethel. The two were found with no collars, tags or other form of id. While they were in my care they were nameless. They are a bonded pair and stuck to each other like glue so […]

Fred

Fred taking it easy in St. Louis’ Forest Park. I miss Fred and his sister Ethel. I met them when I offered to take them off the hands of a friend that found them in her yard. They had no tags, no names. I am involved with a Basset Rescue Group called Guardian Angel Basset […]

Sochii

Sochii is out with his pack combing through brush and undergrowth trying to pickup the scent of a rabbit. He usually hunts with a dozen other Basset Hounds and is part of a pack that belongs to Three Creek Bassets, a professional group of hounds that competes nationally. This is actually part of a sport […]

Basset on my chair

Over the weekend I was honored to care for two lost Basset Hounds. This hound and his sister were found wandering around a nearby neighborhood. I am affiliated with a Basset Rescue group in the Midwest so I took them for a few days until they could be transferred to the rescue group. These hounds […]

The Creek

Basseting in Grubville, MO with 6 Couples (12 Basset Hounds). A local family loaned us their farm for the afternoon allowing us to hunt through the open fields, creeks and woods. The hounds spent two and a half hours in the fields before returning to the farmhouse for an early dinner before driving back to […]

The Hunt

The Basset Hound was bred to hunt. Its keen nose and short stature are suited to small-game hunting on foot. As hunting has declined in popularity, many Bassets have lost their age-old skills. There are a few groups that promote hunting with Basset Hounds. The American Hunting Basset Association and the Basset Hound Club of […]

Puttin on the dog

This is part of the AKC Museum of the Dog in Queeny Park. If you look off to the right, you can see the constellation Canis Major (which contains the Dog Star, Sirius) above the main entrance to the museum. This day I was with a bunch Basset Hound lovers checking out the museum and […]
