I love basset hounds. I used to have one named Oscar Meyer. He would lay and lay, and occasionally, he would get up to eat and slobber… Many people think basset hounds are not the brightest dogs, but I beg to differ. I think they are extremely intelligent, but they are stubborn… and at times disobedient.
Oscar was trained to stay in our backyard. Sometimes, we would leave the gate ajar and go eat or shopping. When we came back, he would be there with his nose at the edge of the open gate, ready to greet us.
