You are killing me! Those pictures are wonderful!!! Forgive the question, but is the little one a basset pup or a beagle?
We too have the lab and basset combo at our house. Seems that many people here over the years have had the same combo of dogs.
The little one is a beagle. He's one month younger than our basset. They really are such a joy! I look forward to coming home from work just to play with them every day. The basset and beagle get along just wonderfully, but our lab is about 9 years old and she tires of them after a while.
