I hope it's OK to put these pictures up here, which I think are too good not to share with fellow Basset lovers!!!

Can you can see these amazing woodcarvings of Basset Hounds from a Facebook friend near Budapest?
All painted like their own Basset Hounds.

Their AMAZING kitchen units with their own Basset Hounds on:

I'll add some pics here in case you can't see them on Facebook!






The cupboard inserts below look like stained glass modelled from photos of their own hounds!

Those are fabulous, The one of the bassets in a row is beautiful. I have a few basset ornaments, but nothing like that. In fact I have A LOT of basset ornaments, I just can't resist them. Once carted home a life size model of a basset when we were touring Italy.

Got it at the start of the holiday and lumped it round the whole country with me.

I must be crazy, but would probably do the same thing again.

I bought a lovely wooden cow (in a sitting position) in Holland a few years ago and took him round various places and took loads of pics of him!

I can see what you have above .Is there a website?
I can't see a website! The family breed and show the most gorgeous chunky Bassets and woodcarving's a hobby!
Can you not open a Facebook account (you don't have to use it if you don't want to) make up a fictitious name! ;)

I'll copy a selection of pics for you of some of their dogs!
This one's cuddling a cat! It looks a huge dog and is well pampered!












What a lovely group of hounds they have!





I love this bottom pic!

Here is her kennel website. My Destiny Basset Hound Kennel No pictures of the woodworking on there that I could find though. Not sure if there is a website with her husband's work on it.
I have just looked at some of her Bassets, particularly Honey, Beni, Happy and Carlos... and my twin sisters are related to them via the Switherland hounds and my last Basset's dad was Bassbarr O'Sullivan, who is related to another of her Bassets (Gail). :cool::D

Interestingly enough, I am now looking at the pedigrees and see a couple of the same v Hollandheim names popping up in Ninja's pedigree too!

It's Patricia from My Destiny Bassets. She's a very nice lady and has some fantastic bassets. I love her style of dog with all the lovely bone and skin. Oodles of wrinkles and skin. I just want to smoosh them every time I see a picture of one of her dogs.

I asked her if her husband would be willing to sell any of the statues and she said no. It's just a hobby of his but I think he does a fantastic job.
