Oh, those basset hounds—how the Drummond family loves them. Who could resist this breed of pups with their floppy ears made for tripping over and their droopy, soulful eyes? Ree is always one to share their antics on Instagram with funny dog photos. "But the great thing about basset hounds is… you really don't know what they are," she says. "I think disturbing, pitiful, and alarming might be in there somewhere. And that's Reason #3,476,554 why I love them."
You can't help but smile at the hounds' flapping jowls as they run through tall grass or when these stout little dogs help around the ranch by "herding" cattle. Or, even sillier, their valiant attempts at grace by catching tossed dog treats (FYI, the treats usually just boop them on the nose 😂).
Yet Ree has figured out how to make these basset hound videos even better, and the key to cuteness is two words: slow-motion. Maybe it's her experience filming The Pioneer Woman show or her fun sense of humor. Whatever the case, there's no occasion needed to enjoy the best Drummond family dog videos. It's a real cast of characters in these videos: the basset hounds Walter, Rusty, Henry, and Fred... even the two Labs and Presley the German Shepherd have been known to make a cameo appearance! So, for no other reason than to brighten your day, here are some of Ree's best Instagrams of her dogs in action... even if they're slowed waaaay down.
