There's a series of novels about a French chief of police in a small town in rural France who hunts woodcock and rabbits with his basset, Gigi. He drives a 1954 Land Rover and shoots a Purdey, all left to him by an old hunting companion. The Bruno series by Martin Walker. Gil
My wife brought home a Basse-doodle. I’m a working/hunting dog person and am not a fan of anything “doodle”. This dog looks like a basset but will chase a 4wheeler all day and has a nose for a dead deer. Awesome tracking dog. I love to hear him howl in his kennel.
