canoe + bassets = ???????

blurry bassets

does anyone have any experience with basset hounds and canoes? for that matter, does anyone have any experience with medium to large size dogs and canoes? i have a compelling desire to take at least one of my dogs out on the canoe with me when i am fishing. the probably is that i’m worried this could bring about certain disaster. if no one has any experience i’ll probably just test the situation out in a very shallow area. i actually think the canoe part will probably be okay after the chosen basset gets used to it. i’m more concerned what will happen the first time i bring a fish into the boat.
