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.
Wow–Marco does look just like Verne! Love this blog
Thank you! They’re both pretty adorable, huh?
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!
He is. I think that basset hound, corgi, and dachshund mixes are all just hilariously adorable.
I know it’s been years and it’s a long shot, but Adam mentioned you might be in touch with Marco’s owners. My sister’s dog, Daisy looks so much like Marco I wonder if they’re related. Here’s a link to some of her photos: https://www.instagram.com/p/B41fy6mlDdd/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
You should also go to her facebook page (which she links to in her name, above) and message her there, if you’re a facebook user.
Also, EEEEE Daisy is adorable! 😀
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!!
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’d love to see pics of Oliver. My sister’s dog, Daisy looks a lot like Marco. https://www.instagram.com/p/B41fy6mlDdd/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
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!
