Yogi's hobbies:

* snorting
* parading around with things in his mouth
* protecting life and limb from the little blue heeler (Tater) who lives across the road when he comes over here to hunt rodents
* stealing kisses
* boxing
* sitting on the top step of the front step with his front feet on the second step buffing at anything that goes by
* showing his fearsomeness by standing by the fence when The Large Monsters (horses) are standing on the other side

Lady's hobbies:

* protecting me from trucks by barking whenever there's one within three miles of me
* looking mildly disturbed whenever Yogi snorts
* sitting extremely daintily and posing, just in case someone is looking
* keeping me carefully informed about the status of food depth in her bowl
* keeping an eye on me while she's supposedly sleeping
* sitting next to me whenever I'm gardening
* showing her fearsomeness by standing by the fence when The Large Monsters (horses) are standing on the other side

Molly, The American Hunting Basset Association Poster Child for "Suburban Grrrls Gone Wild", only wants to HUNT RABBITS, go for walks (Sniffs), eat treats and be petted. Thanks to all my new (9 yr) AHBA (and BHCA Hunt Test) friends! My Bassets are primarily 1st level Obedience trained Bassets, pets, advertising models, and recently (and most importantly) Hunting Hounds. If you don't allow your Basset the opportunity to do what it's genetically bred to do, hunt rabbits, you and your hounds are missing out on the ultimate Basset experience. It's awesome! Molly is the most laid-back, civil, intelligent, social Basset. But when I pull onto the grounds of a Hunt Test (even where she's never been before), she goes balistic! She turns into a crazed hunting machine. It's an incredible sight to see this CDX, agility, therapy dog trained Basset totally become a hunting machine. Because of Dean Wickwire (who introduced me to the the AHBA,) and the late Thad Makowski of the the BHCA (who started the BHCA Hunt Test, which allows altered Bassets to compete in Hunt Tests), I have been allowed to compete in field events with my rescued, altered, AKC Champion sired Basset. These venues have changed my life. I'm sorry I'm rambling, but this is the ultimate Basset hobby and ALL of you can, and should, participate! Take care, Belinda.
