Because of the outrageous gas prices, my husband has been driving my minivan to work and I've been using his gas-hog truck - he has a much longer commute than I do (mine is three miles 8) ). My van has a Colonial Basset Hound Rescue magnet on the back that reads "Proud Owner of a Rescue Basset" and I have a Basset puppy air freshener hanging from my mirror (the cheap thing never smelled but it's cute). Two nights ago as my husband was coming home from work, he was sitting at a traffic light in heavy traffic. There was this car next to him but the person had left three car lengths between herself and the car in front of her so she could keep even with my husband. He caught a glimpse of her waving franticly at him out of the corner of his eye and he thought "Just what I need - a confrontation with a Looney-tune!". He was wondering if he had accidentally cut her off or something and was prepared for trouble as he rolled down the window to see what was up. She waved and yelled happily at him "I HAVE ONE, TOO, I HAVE A RESCUE BASSET!!!! I've been trying to catch up with you to tell you I HAVE A RESCUE BASSET, TOO!". Then the light changed and she drove off. Only a Basset owner... :lol:

Same thing has happened here. I've stopped my car in the middle of busy roads to shout to walking bassets and their slave "I've got a basset too! Here he is (point to back seat)" then Jake says 'woof'! Have run across car parks to greet bassets and slaves; and crazy people have run over to us to tell about the basset they have at home/used to have/once lived next door to.

Perhaps it's a condition of basset slavedom...to be TOTALLY CRAZY!!!

My old car had basset hound bumper stickers on the back window. I was driving home from work one day and this BIG truck starts honking at me and the guy has the window down and is waving - Turns out he had seen my bumper stickers and was shouting at me about his dogs and had I ever been to The Shuffle? (That is the North Texas Basset Hound Rescue's fundraiser) Well, I am actually the one that organizes The Shuffle - so yes I had been! It was pretty funny. Turns out he works in my building so I still see his truck occasionally. His wife posted on The Drool and sent me a email - too funny!

Yup, I'll do that too if I see another car with basset sticker on it, BUT nope, never happens to me! :x

Usually I like to wave at cars who have dogs in it. And usually the owner will think I am crazy. :lol: I don't care, as long as the dog pays attention to me, that's priceless!! :lol:
