Some people are like dogs in that we wonder sometimes why we ever taught them to speak!

Speak!  Speak!  Don't speak!

Some dogs are crooners.

There once was a man from Wiscasset,

Who choosing a dog, chose a Bassett.

What he soon was to find,

Drove him out of his mind,

When THAT dog’s howling was no asset.

      Gypsy Rose Lee - Reminds me of an ancient (8th Century epic poem) called "Beowulf" and its hero warrior of that name. That would surely be a good name for a Basssett Hound.

      lol I remember someone telling me they got a bassett puppy and it took them a year to get used to what he does naturally.

      Matthew Weese, wetnosedogs, and dahoglund---even those who didn't go to an East Coast college might like the next one, since all they need to know is that "Boola Boola" is the title of a Yale song. Thanks for the comments, and wetnosedogs' knowledge that Bassetts just naturally howl...even if you are not asking them to "Speak!"

      rebeccamealey: If you liked that one, and were an East Coast college student, you'll love the next one.
