Both of mine have waistlines. Gibbs' waist is more defined-he is too skinny in my opinion, but the vet says "He is at a great weight", Lily is a bit more hefty, but once again according to the vet "She is at optimal Basset weight."

When we got Moe he was skin and bones. I tried for several years to fatten him up, in a vain attempt to make him look more "Bassety"... as a young guy looked sort of like a slightly long beagle with long ears. :lol: After several years my attempt to fatten him up was working far too well and he lost his waist. After a scolding from his vet we began to feed him more sensibly and for several years now he's maintained a healthy weight of seventy pounds, give or take a couple pounds now and again. He has a perfect shape for a dog his size. Tally, however, does not. <_< She's very porky. She looks somewhat like a baby fur seal... no waist, and no neck! I'm sure there is a waist in there somewhere but we haven't seen it in a long time. :blink:

Mr. Runcible has one, even though he weighs 88 lbs.
Oh, and of course he has gotten a bigger harness. Our little ones grow up so fast, don't they? :p





Mr. Runcible says: Not to worry, I'm working on it right now, sir!
It'll be gone by eighteen hundred hours, sir!


(yes, that is a bone hidden under all the surplus skin and dewlaps.)
