Saeriellyn has been drawing longer than most people on this site have been alive, but only delved into comics a few years ago. She loves children's literature, celtic fantasy, Wales, and Assistant Pig-Keepers. She will wax verbose with anyone who interacts with her regarding all these topics, and her related work especially.

She's happily married to a fellow fantasy nerd and costume designer, and homeschools three kids, which means in her spare time she likes to go to the bathroom alone.

She enjoys singing, art, pretending she can dance, sarcasm, 80s nostalgia, Jim Henson, mountains, castles, and costumes. She does not like politicians, internet trolls, and when people clear-cut woods to build ugly housing developments.

These aren't ALL going to be dog strips. This just happens to be the next one that's ready. :P

As I understand it, a Basset hound is essentially a bloodhound with achondroplasia, the same form of dwarfism that Peter Dinklage and Warwick Davis have -- it dramatically limits the growth of the long bones in the limbs without changing the size of the head and torso much. It's caused by a single, autosomal dominant mutation, so the offspring of a basset hound crossed with another breed will either have legs just as short as the Basset's, or just as long as any other comparably sized dog -- there's no blending of the trait.

In humans, the trait is lethal in infancy when homozygous, which makes it extremely risky for two achondroplastic dwarfs to have children together. I'm not sure if the same is true in dogs, but if so one would expect to lose one in four pups from any litter with two Basset (or dachsund or bulldog, as those breeds are also achodroplastic) parents, and have another one in four turn out with normal-length legs.

I had to look up catahoula, but the picture on the Wikipedia entry (which is a beautiful dog, by the way) looks just like your drawing above, so I can well imagine that they might have been mistaken about his Basset parentage; even without the short legs, I would expect a Basset cross to have substantially longer ears and droopier jowls than its non-Basset parent, especially if the other was of a breed as trim-looking as the catahoula.

He would like to believe that he is, if his 90-mph bursts from the front door and down the block are any indication.

The folks on the farm we rescued him from claimed he was a catahoula/basset hound mix, but if there is basset in those legs, I'm a lizard.

To Gwyds, couches are just hurdles in the racetrack of his life.
