The reason bassets are depicted as fat and lazy is because they are not overly active dogs, and generally not hyper active. But they are very active when they are active. So it is tough to film or photograph them other then when they are sleeping.

I always thought the way they portrayed Killer (Jerry Van Dyke's basset) on Coach was right on, half the time he was asleep, and Coach called him the bag a dog came in, and the other half the time he was being wild, (always off camera of course).

Our basset was the same way, she was either being wild, or sleeping, not a lot of in between.

I think he didn´t interpret as well the "sad" look... It´s not sad, it´s sweet... And the cartoon seems bored...

Actually after looking at the drawing, I think there should be a thought bubble that says "Don't call me Muffin?!"

Definitely not couch potatoes. Rossi would run all day if I let him. He has more energy than our Boston pup could ever dream of having.
