Basset Hounds are the best. They're all depressed and lethargic looking on the outside — even when they're jumping for joy on the inside. It's an endearing quality that makes me want to run over and squeeze some life back into them. Look at Flash here. Bath time is his favorite. It leaves him feeling so fresh, clean, and pleased, he can't help but . . . sit, stare, and frown. Awww.
