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 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,, 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!

    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!!

    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!
