At http://www.drawthedog.com, cartoonist Jim George just created a new series of breed-specific, color cartoon designs. So far, he has one each for Labs, Danes, Goldens, and German Shepherds.

Now, Jim wants to create a Basset Hound design. He wants to capture the spirit and personality of Basset Hounds, in the same way he did with these:

Lab: http://drawthedog.com/?p=280
Golden: http://drawthedog.com/?p=288
Dane: http://drawthedog.com/?p=271
GSD: http://drawthedog.com/?p=286

I'm co-founder of Draw the Dog, and we would really appreciate your ideas, stories and suggestions - so we can create an amazing Basset Hound color cartoon. Here's our question:

What is it that Basset Hounds do that no other breed does? We're looking for ideas for the cartoon's pose.

Thanks.

Mine will actually cover their eyes with their ear when taking a daytime nap.

Yea, I think's common as Basset's have long ears and when they lay to the side or lay their head to the side, the ears tend to fall and cover their eyes.........which is common among long ear breeds.

Another common trait among Basset's is their nose to the ground as they are scent hounds and let's not forget that bawl mouth they have, not to mention to being known as a stubborn breed.

I don't think your gonna find a something that only the Bassets do that no other breed does.......they are dogs after all and share the same things with all dogs.

This is helpful, thanks. But...

Labs aren't the only dog that chew, but they LOVE to chew, so Jim made the Lab cartoon with a Lab chewing the "L" in Lab.

Goldens aren't the only dogs that carry balls around in their mouths, but they LOVE to do it, so Jim made the Golden steal the "O" in Golden.

You get the idea, I hope. We want to come up with a pose or situation that Basset fans will say, "Yes! You really nailed it."

Yea, but you stated -- What is it that Basset Hounds do that no other breed does? We're looking for ideas for the cartoon's pose." --which is what I was going by since that is what you said you were looking for.

I'd say nose to the ground............ask most Basset people if they let their dogs off the leash where their Bassets would end up, LOL -- they take off with nose to the ground exploring.

..............I should add that Basset's are not the fat lazy hound that seems to be depicted in most media, IE; film, magazine ads, ad etc..

Sure they can be fat lazy hounds..............if their owners allow them to be couch potatoes.

I would have to agree with both points above! My Reubie sleeeps sometimes with her eys covered (just bein able to see with one eye just incase!). She also hahs the habbit of looking like a bellied out aeroplane while resting, ears spread like the wings. The other is ofcourse the slueth pose when out and about as stated above nose alwasys to the ground and tail up like a creasent moon! This maybe the reason they are associated with the famous Sherlock Holmes. The only other thing i would say is DROOL!!!

Good luck and please let us see any sketches you may have? Also if you would like we could post some pooch poses that may give you a little more insperation?

theres one thing bassets do....FLAT BASSET!!!

Some bassets when out on a walk on a lead, will not move and lay there on the floor untill it wants too! this is flat basseting. Also they have a unique bark, well its not a bark its a Bellow.

One thing I thought about when the drool was mentioned is when a basset shakes his head...his ears start going and drool flies every direction. Gross but funny when someone else is near :lol:

Saw what DrawTheDog decided for the Basset Hound, a "couch potato".

Chop up another negative misguided misrepresentation of the breed once again.
