bassets of india

bassets in goa?! surfing. this is lulu, taken from alight's flickr page.

also, i found preeti narayanan, she's a basset breeder in bangalore.

"i was seven when i decided that i was going to have a home filled with dogs. everyone thought it was very amusing. my parents even bought me a dog figuring it would take care of it. hmmm...don't think it did. we are a family of 27! raj, my daughter - tapasya, our 24 dogs and myself. our crowded little home is in suburban bangalore and we are fortunate to have understanding neighbors who don't have a fit evey time the dogs decide to do a rendition of 'who let the dog's out'! there are no kennels in our house and all our dogs live together. i also board dogs and guess what they too live with my dogs while they are here!" omg.

Are you sure that's a basset hound in the photo? It appears to have asymmetrically shortened legs on one side of its body -- much like the mystical dahoue of the French Alps -- except this creature's shorter-than-short legs are on its right side.

wow, you're right. would be awkward when the dahoue and the basset-dahoue meet up on a high alpine trail, one forced to go clockwise, the other counter-clockwise.

i have experienced numerous sightings of dogs surfing in india, but never a basset. come to think of it, i have never seen a basset at all in india.
i like that breed. when i was a kid my neighbor had one named molly. she was most kawaii!

I've seen a basset in India! And I've seen five in New York in the last week. It has been the August of bassets.

hi ld & bindi! i hope my trip is as fun as yours, ld, and that bassets are everywhere but i know bindifry has been throughout and not a single basset has she seen! you saw one in delhi, i think, ld?
bindi maybe in rwanda, though i'd be surprised. but i bet molly made up for any future basset deficit:)

Is that his tongue hanging out? Fantastically hilarious photo. No doubt his low center of gravity helps with the surfing.
