Last weekend I attended a much anticipated walking event with Jemma. A walk in the Mendips with the Basset Hound Walkers group of the south west.
Some background first, though: Jemma's fine hound Boris is a Bassador, that is a hound who is 50% labrador and 50% Bassett. On acquiring a hound, Jemma did not want to go full on Bassett and thus the ad' she saw for a halfway house appealed. The result is Boris, a hound of distinction and good training - training I make all efforts to corrupt through embracing Boris' inner-goon and developing it with him.
Boris was cordially accepted on the walk as were we, and a happy six miles followed wth a most welcome pint half way through. Here's some pics which are a bit fuzzy as my phone seems to be out of focus these days.
