i'd love to know the answer to this one too. My husband and I always call Louie peanut head...lol
That's interesting Lukes, I can honestly say that I have never seen Toby do anything like that. Would be interesting to know if anyone else has ever noticed their basset using their head in a similar way.[/b]
OK, I know most of us are aware that Bassets were bred wth specific features in order to enable them to be good hunters. The ears for picking up the scent,the wrinkles for holding it and the large nose for smelling it. Even the height and loose skin is so that they could track their prey through the undergrowth and the white tip on the tail makes them easy to spot. Their loud bays also make them easier to follow but what puzzles me is ..why do they have that big bump(occuput???) on the top of their head.
The only explanation I have ever heard for this was from a guy I met in the park recently, who said the reason for it was[/b]
