Bloggies. Yesterday. Or was it the day before? Whatever. There I was perusing my nephew Bouncing Bertie's Blog.
Ahhhh. Here's my boy. Testing out his new found bouncy skills. I'm proper proud of him. Isn't his Boing Diddy Boinging coming on a treat? But as I was barking. I happened to cast my mincies on this perplexing comment from the dear Martha and Bailey on Bertie's blog.....
"We met a WFT the other night on our walk - first time ever- and no camera!!!! Well the human was so excited, was it Bertie, Eric, Asta, Jake or Fergi? Sadly it was no dog we knew but we must say it was an eye opener - do you WFT's have springs?"
Doh. They don't know? I don't like to boast. But Bassets. We foxy doggies. Ok. Probably a certain Miss-Wired Lakie and maybe my new welshie pal (get your wig on a wagger and meet him) George , who's a bit of a lad like me, can too. Yep. We can go from standing horizontal to standing vertical. Quick as a wink. Lookie. Haaa! We're almost too fast for the camera.
Like so. Surprising. I'm a mere flash of my normal square self. Weird eh? How some of myself arrives before the rest me. Certainly surprised that pesky wheelie. Thank dog he's now living a life in purple with Miss-Wired Lacie. Hardehaha! He deserved it.
Wee Bassets. We also like to dance and prance on our back leggeds. As often as possible. Don't we fellow foxies? I'm trying to teach Mom the fine art of a fox trot. You can probably tell from the sad choice of her wellibob footie wear and clumsy tootsie placement, I have a life long job ahead of me. Not that I'm complaining. I'm rather partial to standing on my own back two feet.
Then Bassets. Looksee. Here's me. Unleashing my coiled wire back leggeds. To reach the normally unreachable. And you ask dear ladies. Do we WFT's have springs? Haaahaaa!!!!! OF COURSE WE DO!!! With our wired internal springing we go from ground to airborne in a nano second.
As detailed in this slow motion demonstration by my super springing self. Weeeee...!!!!! There I go. See me springing??? Boing. Boing. Boing. Straight. Up! Up! Up! Do hope that answers your question sufficiently dearest Martha and Bailey.
OMdoG...Is This Fun or What???
