Meet Bertram, a 16-week old clumber spaniel.
Bertie and his Uncle Big get along just fine. Bertie will eventually weigh in at much the same as Uncle Big, 70 lbs, but will be shorter with his basset-hound-inherited legs. And I think he's going to have that basset hound deep bay as opposed to a bark or woof, like my Samoyeds. And as he's just had his final round of vaccinations, as soon as he learns to walk like a proper gentleman on his leash, or even just walk on it rather than sit down and refuse to budge, he can start going to for short walks with Uncle Big and even to the dog park with us. Fun times!
