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.
