Basset Hound Clown Car..incredible!
A clown car is a prop in a circus clown routine. A common example of such a routine involves
an implausibly large number of clowns emerging from a very small car, to humorous effect.
Bassets like its ancestor the Bloodhound, is known for its hanging skin structure, which causes the face to occasionally look sad;
this, for many people, adds to the breed's charm. The dewlap, seen as the loose,
elastic skin around the neck, and the trailing ears which along with the Bloodhound
are the longest of any breed, help trap the scent of what they are tracking. Its neck is wider than its head.
This combined with the loose skin around its face and neck means that flat collars can easily be pulled off.
The previous FCI standard described the characteristic skin of the Basset, which resembles its ancestor the Bloodhound as "loose".
This wording has since been updated to "supple and elastic".
The looseness of the skin results in the Basset's characteristic facial wrinkles.
