The thing about Basset Hounds is their smell.
Many people will say it smells like corn chips. I disagree.
I would never eat Fritos that smell like Lilo. She just plain stinks.
It's an oil that still smells, even after a bath.

The other thing about Bassets is their expressive face.
I can pull out my camera and start giving Lilo direction and she nails it, spot on.
Every time.

Show me anxious.

Show me happy.

Show me loved.

Show me worried.

Show me confident.

Show me seductive.

Show me excited.

See? Kate Moss has nothing on this beauty.
This girl knows how to work it.

Happy Monday to you!

You're a hoot! Lilo is a natural beauty, for sure. And just think...her oily skin will help her stay looking young longer! lol
Have a beautiful day.

Lilo is a beauty! My favorites of her portfolio are worried and seductive.

My friend's basset had a stink. Turns out it was an ear problem. That girl does not stink now!

Bassets are my second favorites. Corgis are first of course!

Lilo's worried face is my favorite!!!

Diana said...

Every look beautiful! I especially liked excited!

Although "seductive" was very... alluring. :D

Lilo surely does know how to work it!
Now I need to get my CK girl to perform like that. she will when the camera isnt out. Oh well. My doggie treats do help though.
Love the photos with all the great experssions.

It's not basset hounds, it's hounds. Hounds love to get into all things stinky, eat anything that looks remotely edible (even if it's not) as well as other behaviours that we shall not get into in decent company. My beagle has similar issues. All the worse when she discovers exotic droppings in the forest to roll about in!

I thought at first you had another new dog and then I got to reading and laughing and laughing and laughing!!!

What a cute she is and quite the model too.

I inherited my daughter's basset hound, Elvis. Yes, he does stink, but that face!! I adore him....
