Re: New Best Friend
As far as the shorter bassets go, my one grandfather used to like and use only short beagles because they didn't run as fast or run the rabbits into the next parrish. I don't think he liked to track down the dogs at the end of the hunt. Squirrel dogs, on the other hand, he had a very large and fluffy collie mix to use as the tree dog. He used smaller feists to keep them treed. Once the big dog got to moving, he was GONE.
