Really the only dogs I have ever had were purebred Basset Hounds. Right now I am the proud mommy of two beautiful Basset 'furbabies' that just amaze me with their comical antics. I've always wondered if other dogs do these sorts of odd things, or if it's just entirely a 'Basset thing'.
For example, both of my Bassets that I have now get SOOOO excited right after they have a bath, that they run around the house at breakneck speed, which my husband and I call 'The Basset 500'. They tear around the house, roll around on all the furniture, barking and howling as if they're screaming with joy that they are nice and clean. Do other breeds of dogs do this after their bath?
Another thing that my Copper Hound does that amazes me is that he has always been fond of nasty stinky things. lol I'm talking about if one of the kids vomits on the floor, or a dead rotting bird in the yard, something disgusting but also full of odor. If Copper comes across something like this, he HAS to smear his face in it and then roll in it! I've even seen him do this with a pile of wet towels that have started to smell a little musty from sitting around awhile. Whenever we go out for a walk, I always have to yank the leash because he's always finding something gross that he wants to roll in, even other dogs' poop.
Is this just a 'Basset thing', or are there other dogs out there that actually partake in these silly yet odd behaviors? Let me know!
