Someone suggested that I might post some pictures of Mr. Runcible
for the new members that have not seen him yet.

I'm not very active at this forum at the moment. As I mentioned earlier I've
been busy with a new job + full time studies. So there isn't much time left for
browsing the net. I still enjoy to read about your dogs, but I usually don't have
time to reply. Anyhow, I thought I'd take the time to show off my little hound.
So get ready..... here comes Mr. Runcible:


Mr. Rucible being all royal


Mr. Runcible imitating a giant slug


Mr. Runcible as the Flying Festoon


Mr. Runcible and his new puppy friend


Mr. Rucible and his human slave


Mr. Runible with his default begging-look



As I've been reading on this forum I've gotten the impression that your bassets tend to
be very vocal. Mr. Runcible almost never barks or howls at all. It can go months between
each time he barks. Does any of your basset share this vow of silence? It would be fun
to know how many of the dogs on the forum that are like this.

Until next time...

Mr Runcible is VERY handsome and seems to have many different aspects to his personality. I personally like his slug impersonation. :lol: And his royal pose. I have a photo of Moe in one such pose - you'd never guess that within that very dignified and regal-looking beast there lurked the mind of a raving lunatic! ;) And Mr. Runcible is a QUIET Basset?! :blink: A rare and unusual quality in a hound... but one that may invoke feelings of envy from fellow members. ;)

Mr Runcible, you are one GORGEOUS hunk of a hound!!!!!! B) Loved every one of your pics :) The slug impersonation and the royal look were two of my favourites, but best of all I loved the one with you and Kaira, your very pretty slave (well.....she would be if she could just remember to shave in the mornings :blink: :blink: :lol: )

Hope you don't leave it so long next time. :)

Charlie, who is six, rarely would bark if it weren't for the girls. Eloise and Edith both sound the alarm and he joins in. When he was by himself, he'd only bark while I was preparing his breakfast and dinner......

Awesome pictures ... and what a hound!

I don't know if I would call my hounds "quiet" exactly ... but they do tend to make less noise than the chow/lab that shares this residence. :)

Unless another animal dares trespass (like the neighbour's cat) they really don't like that critter. *lol* The cat will sit on top of the fence post and taunt the houndies by IGNORING them! How dare it! *hehe*

Mr. Runcible is very photogenic! Scooter doesn't bark all that much - usually only if Rocky starts first. She does howl whenever she hears one of the cars drive up, but that's the only time she howls. She does whine. Usually at about 5:00 am or in the car.

Thank you for telling me about your dogs. I've had two bassets and both were quite ones.
The last one did bark when happy, i.e. when I got home. So I thought that perhaps silence
was a breed trait.
I remember one time, the neighbours came out to look what all the fuss was about. They just couldn't
believe that little dog having so deep and load a bark. I just love the deep basset voice.

Mr. Runcible doesn't even bark when playing with his puppy friend. :huh:

charvie, what typical feline behaviour. My cat loved to taunt the bassets too. She pretended
to dislike them, but you just saw how fun she had outsmarting and frustrating them.
I think that cats like bassets better than other dogs because of their calm demeanor and their
eye expression. I do know my cat hated the staring eyes and croaching stance of border collies.
