Good grief. More time, Mikey T.? :-)

Our neighbor doesn't drink, but she might start.
Keep that neighbour sweet if you can - yes, this could take some time. Told you - that face!!

Story - with our first hound, we went next door one evening for drinks etc. during the evening there was a very odd noise coming from our house (adjoining). I looked at them and said what in the world....... they grinned and said 'that's your Basset'. He does this when left alone. He was actually howling but it sounded like a cow in pain Hum.

Franksmum, they "sing" a duet. Cow in pain is the perfect way to describe her.

Our original pair of Bassets never howled...actually, one howled, but only in his sleep.

Poor Harvey - he perked up once Homer joined us!! However, when we had numbers, if one started, the rest were compelled to join in - even if some might be in a dead sleep, they'd wake up and join in. One day, coming back home to our DETACHED home (that was as inevitable with having hounds, as was losing our MG Midget once we had two ) I walked right into the kitchen where there was a howl-in going on, before they realised I was back home. At which point they almost all stood up, shook themselves, looked guilty and greeted us!!!

Nothing compares to the sound of a basset Howl! So deep, so soulful, so endearing (if you're not the neighbor!)
