Dog of the Day: Marco the Basset Hound/Brittany Spaniel Mix

I ran into Marco last Tuesday and had this major feeling of déjà vu. (Ooh, schmancy accent marks.) When I got home I looked up ‘Marco’ but didn’t find any dogs by that name on here. But when I looked up ‘basset hound’ things fell into place: Marco totally reminds me of Verne, but without the footie pajamas. (He also reminds me of Donny the Land Shark, a little bit.)

Anyway, Marco is awesome.

Marco lives right near where I work. Hopefully I’ll run into him again.

I have been trying to include whole people in my shots a bit more, lately. Unfortunately, in this case, I got two pictures of the bottom half of Marco doing the trick, one picture of Marco doing the trip with the bottom 2/3 of his mom, and two pictures of Marco and his mom after he’d finished the trick. Perfect.

Look at that sweet face. And that floofy tail. I think basset/Brittany is a winning combination.

    I love Marco too. I see him walking with his owners around Mission Creek Park all the time. Of course I am partial to the shorties like my Otis. But what I love about Marco the most is his tail! It’s beautiful and out of control at the same time. He’s so cute!

    I rescued a puppy 5 years ago and was told it was a corgi mix. But looking at Marco, my Pockets looks just like him!! I am interested in knowing more about Marco because I really want to figure out what Pockets could be! I would really like to send you a picture!!

      Hi! Best way to post pictures here is to upload them to an image sharing web site (one of the easiest to use is imgur.com) and then post a link to the image in your comment.

      Alternatively, you could email me at alang at the address of this blog (that is, @dogsofsf.com), if you just want me to see them. But I encourage you to post links, so other people can see your dog, especially if he looks like Marco the Magnificent!

    Is there a way I can post pictures on this webpage??

    Oh my goodness I never though I would see another dog that looks like mine. Oliver (my pup) has a lot more black coloration but their faces are identical!!

    • Adam Lang says:

      We want pictures! (Especially since if Oliver looks anything like Marco he has got to be ADORABLE. Marco is one of the dogs I remember well, even years after meeting him.) If there are any online please post a link in a comment!

    I’ve been googling what my Basset Jouel might be mixed with, Marco and Verne look SOOOO much like her!!! We found her abandoned in a box when she was a puppy and her 8th birthday is coming up soon! After seeing them, I’m really thinking she is probably mixed with spaniel. ❤️

      I’m gonna guess you’re right. What a great combo!

      Are there any pictures of your pup online? If so, post some links in a comment and share ’em with the world!
