The Human Whisperer
Bassets were quite content to be "rather low" because it minimized injury. On level ground, they cannot trip and fall beyond the length of their legs, about three inches, and they were pleased with this. However, if breeders succeeded in growing them a third set of legs in the middle, there would be no turning back from evolution into benches. So they put a stop to it. We must now examine their brains.
Bassets have square --cuboid-- brains where humans have round --roughly spherical-- brains. Observe:
In the photo, Clyde is whispering something to me. I don't recall it exactly but it had to do with "Kitchen...doggie treats...green bag, top shelf...the really stinky ones." My impressions, beyond DOGGIE TREATS, are foggy from that point but a short while later my memory resumes and Clyde was in possession of them.
