Dog of the Day: Verne the Basset Hound/Brittany Spaniel

Help me out here: for reasons I do not fully understand, I feel like Verne is wearing footie pajamas. Can anyone figure out why?

I believe that this dog is goofy enough to hold his head up in the company of corgi-mixes in the ‘all-time world’s most goofy dog’ competition.

Look at the legs. They almost look like they have extra joints.

I hope he didn’t mind my giggling at him. He looks kind of hurt in this picture.

Perfect boopable nose. Boop!

A little dose of puppydog eyes, too.

    I think it is the ‘extra’ joint thing – that makes his ‘ankle’ look like it is the elastic part of the footie pjs. Darling dog though!

    • Adam Lang says:

      I’m thinking so too: it makes it look like the foot of the pajama isn’t all the way on the foot of the dog. Only adds to the adorability.

    That dog us awesome! I’ve seen him trolling around town and he is special! Where do you get a dog like that?talk about “designer breed!”

    • Adam Lang says:

      I suspect you just hang out at the SPCA and hope, because I seriously doubt there are any ‘Brasset Spound’ breeders out there. Which, judging from Verne, is a damn shame!

  3. Sullivan says:

    I’d like to get to know him! Amazing!

  4. Leicester says:

    That dog is awesome! Great photos!

    I asked my mom if we could get a Verne and she said if I win more pageants!

    Do you have any pictures of your dog now that she’s older? Describing our dog I would say long haired basset hound with a curly frilly tail. Your dog has many of the characteristics of ours.

    A real sweetheart. Loves to lay on beds and on her back.

    Thanks,

    I have a basset spaniel that is almost Verne’s doppelganger.

    • Adam Lang says:

      Really? I’d love to see pictures if you have any. Verne is one of those dogs that I will always regret not getting any more pictures of him, because he is hilariously awesome.

  9. Dawn says:

    I too have a Basset/Brittany Mix! I’m no where near San Francisco, but just happened to be looking to see if I could find any pics of others like my girl and saw this! I’ve had my Shiloh since she was just a babe and she’s almost 7 now. Don’t know what I’d do without her!

    • Chris says:

      Verne is our office dog at work – I’d love to see a dog that looks like him, they’re hard to come by. Do you have any pics you’d be willing to share? :)
