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 […]

Fall Hunt

It’s the end of fall and time to take the hounds into the empty fields. The Three Creek Basset pack will spendĀ  weekends from now until April honing their tracking skills. This is an opportunity to get out, enjoy the Fall weather and fresh air.

Basset Hounds

Many of our Sunday afternoons are spent in St. Charles County watching these hounds demonstrate their tracking skills. They are part of Three Creek Bassets, a professional pack of Basset Hounds that compete nationally. Their short powerful legs allow them to forage through dense brush where rabbits hide. Their goal is to track the rabbits […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bassets on the run

This is one of my favorite recent photos taken while observing these Basset Hounds showing off their tracking skills. When processing the pictures from that day I did not remember any bassets being chased by horses. What was happening was that, while cutting through this pasture, the Bassets were running to join another group of […]

Three Creek Bassets

As a Basset Hound enthusiast I like to spend time with people that share my interest. This group of hounds are bred for tracking and compete nationally, showing off their skills. My wife and I will spend a number of fall and winter Sundays watching them perform at various locations around St. Louis and St. […]

Interlopers unwelcome

These Basset Hounds are waiting to go home after spending a day in the fields showing off their tracking skills when another dog comes along from a neighboring farm.

The Critics

This is a photo I took about four years ago in St. Louis’ City Garden, a sculpture park in the downtown area. The critics are my two Basset Hounds, Lolly and Clementine. This park is full of interesting things to photograph. I will be returning later this week, watch here for the results.
