Yes, she's a tri-color basset. She has a pretty black thick stripe around the back of her neck. The sire is a mahogany and white basset...he's quite the handsome fellow too. She really is a lovely lady, and in that particular picture, you can see those puppies drooping and sagging all over the place!!!
Poor Momma Maybelle doesn't look too terribly amused by the whole state of affairs, does she? She's had one other litter, and had 12 puppies!!!! Apparently she did an excellent job with her other babies...we are hoping that she produces some tri-colors, as that is the coloring we are interested in.
So far, no word on pups yets or signs of labor, so Maybelle's decided to keep those buns in the oven for a bit longer. I'll be sure to post pics once the pups have been whelped, and once we've chosen our special baby girl.
