Third Annual Brooklyn Basset Hound Meetup

Sunday October 27th marks the third annual meeting of the Basset Hounds in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. A couple of  years ago a few local basset hound owners decided to gather the hounds together and the North Park Slope Basset Association was formed. 

Higgins and Woodey

The first year, six Bassets attended. The following year it grew to 15 Bassets. Who knows how many will be there this year! Basset hounds are not they typical “city dog”- you don’t see many of them, so as an owner of  three year old Higgins, I get really excited when I see one in the area. The idea of seeing a group of them together is just pure silliness that must be experienced.

Basset Tongue

Bassets make people smile. I often think, “if I only had a dollar for every time someone smiles at Higgins as we’re walking”. There were lots of smiles last year and I’m sure there will be just as many this year. Come see the Bassets this Sunday! Visit the North Park Slope Basset Association Facebook page for more details.
