Welcome to the board! But there is nothing wrong with basset hounds!...They are just a shorter-legged & much stouter in body-size than a beagle! :thumbup: (Is it any wonder that there are at least 4 variations of the beagle !) Ie: Walker hound, Basset hound, Beagle & miniature beagle.)?! Pop & I have most of those "bases covered, with Goober, a large beag & Nibbler a medium beag & Rufus as the "tiny-tot"! But "Homer-the-Huge" @ first was thought to be a beag-mix pup...but he is most likely a Walker-Greyhound! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

Welcome to you, Yvonne!

Glad you found us, too! There are alot of BW members from "across the pond".

I love basset hounds...because they remind me of "beetles".

My Henry says "HI" and "aroo" to Griffin, Rupert and Precious.

Welcome to the BW pack!

Yes, here beagles rule. But Bassets are just longer eared beagle cousins. Anyway, we have plenty of "honorary" beagles here. Rupert and Precious are more than welcome.

A big welcome to Beagle World, you will love it here. Whereabouts in Wales do you live? We visit Wales and the rest of the UK at least once a year. Infact we are about to do a tour of the UK.
Photos of your hounds please! :wave:

Howdy Yvonne, :wave: A big welcome arrroooo to Griffin and sloppery kisses to Rupert and Precious. We love beagles best but all scenthounds are special and any of your beagle's buddy's (Rupert and Precious) are more than welcome but because they are Bassets (fellow hounds) you will get requests to post pictures of all the family.

Thanks for sharing . Griffin looks like a grand old man. Much more distingished, as all UK beagles are, than my American hunting beagle Bagel. Rupert and Precious look like what a Basset should, most Bassets over here are bulkier (Over loved and over fed) but Rupert and Precious look ready for anything. The one Bassets I know who looks like yours competes in agility. I am very partial to older beagles, they age so well, and Griffin is a perfect example of what I love about the breed.

A big welcome and arrrooooo to you and your pack of hounds from Vancouver Canada! We have three rescue beagles but my husband grew up with basset hounds and loves them both (except for the drooling part - which is the main reason why we moved over to beagles). Marc says one of the biggest difference between beagles and bassets is walking them - beagles will take maybe 30 seconds to complete their "urinalisis" of each post/tree/leaf on a walk - but bassets will take a good 3 to 5 minutes to do so!

Welcome, Vonny and gang! What wonderful hounds -- thanks so much for posting pics so quickly. They help us to know your pups. I have one senior rescue, Maggie, who is almost 12 so can definitely relate to Griffin. Looking forward to hearing and seeing more!

Welcome Welcome over there to you and your beautiful hounds!

They are all good looking pups so I would definitely be proud. I, myself, have 3 beagles here (that all sleep in bed with me!) and love to see the pics and hear new stories and talk over new subjects, so feel free to jump in!

I still remember that day when I found beagle world--- (insert fond memory here) heheh. Its a great site, and we are a great group here I think!

You have beautiful hounds.

Griffin looks very distinguished and Rupert and Precious are beautiful. Like Bob mentioned, over here, bassets seem to always be a bit chunky.

I love the name Griffin! Before we actually got Caesar we decided that his name would be Griffin. But while we were driving home with him (it was a 3 hour drive from the breeders place) we decided that he looked more like a Caesar. Bassets are beautiful hounds too. Your pack is adorable. More pictures please!!!
