Pendelton Termly from Peoria writes…….Dear Hugh: I saw a severely obese bassett hound running across the yard yesterday….(at least I think he was running)……What is the top speed of a Bassett Hound in high gear?

 

From Hugh…..

.

This is a very interesting question….

or at least I am going to act like it is…..

.

Nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. As you know, Bassett Hounds are not one of the more motivated or mobile species of canine…Prone to lethargy and obesity, they are frequently mistaken as statues…….

.

But, IFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF they are sufficiently motivated…..They have been clocked at speeds up to and including 4 miles per hour……( There was one case in Evansville Idaho where a Bassett Hound was clocked at 10 mph..but she had accidentally eaten a five pound bag of Folgers Coffee in a three minute period……So we are not averaging that in.
