Hi folks, first post here. I've owned 5 Bassets over the last 30 years. I doubt that makes me any kind of expert but it has brought up many questions. This is my first opportunity to have a computer and the "dawgs" at the same time. My wife has now decided she'd like to try breeding our two Bassets we've recently rescued. Their previous owners, for one reason or another, couldn't keep them. I'm going to post a couple of seperate questions at this point that have raised my couriosity over the my years of ownership of the breed. Hopefully the questions will bring answers to some observations I've made. Glad to have found the board.
