Hurley is a Bassett Hound with an incredible nose. She believes that she has been put on earth for three activities:
She is an absolutely incredible thief. It appears that she is actually capable of deception, a trait that is not common to canines.
Bassett Hounds are so lazy it is difficult to even get them to breed. Witness the picture at left.
