Balu the dancing basset hound

Basset hounds are notoriously difficult to train. This must be a fact coz I read it on the internet.

Actually, basset hounds are highly intelligent dogs. They know exactly what we want them to do. The problem, though, is that they don’t really see the point. They’re like method actors. “So you want me to move from my warm spot and walk across the room to where you are? Well, what’s my motivation?”

By motivation, they of course mean a tasty morsel.

Getting a basset hound to do what you want him to do is hard. Unless what you want him to do is go back to sleep. So imagine how many hours – and how many tasty morsels – went into this…

Balu (and Balu’s owner), we salute you.
