Have you ever seen white eyelashes on a basset hound? WOW!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and white eyelashes lovers.  The second I removed Daisy Lynn from her shipping crate at the cargo terminal at Delta I notice she had white eyelashes on her white side.  WOW!  I thought they were so pretty.  I had to share!

I captured this picture as Grandma and I were trying to measure the Mayor’s ear length while still a puppy.

So pretty and unusual. I love her little white eyelashes.

So, our attempt at measuring the ear is still in process.  We just cannot get her to lay still while I get the regulation measurement required to be placed in the bassethoundtown sub-blog.

(Official Archive for Basset Hound Ear Length)


The preliminary measurement logs in at about 9” but we still have to get it accurate via a picture.  The Mayor has to be accurate!

It was a fun photo shoot!

More loving white eyelashes and ear measurements later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB) saying that white eyelashes are pretty rare…

    Poor Grandma. I see her holding Daisy Lynn and helping. Does she think we are all absolutely nuts? Ha!

    I just looked at my hounds eyelashes and no houndy has white ones. I thought Ozzie would but he doesn’t. Does gray count? Just kidding! Daisy Lynn’s white eyelashes are beautiful. The more I learn of her, the more beautiful she gets.

    My Barney had a muzzle that was red with brown whiskers on one side and white with white whiskers on the other. But Miss Mayor has that beat with her beautiful white lashes. How sweeeeet she is!!

    They are beautiful and they are a symbol of what a delicate soul our Mayor is.

    I just recently discovered that Bassets have eyelashes. I never realized it before.
