BRECKENRIDGE – What goes better with beer and brats than a basset hound?The Huneck Gallery of Breckenridge, located at 304 S. Main St., is sponsoring the second annual Flopfest to benefit High Country Basset Rescue from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.Oktoberfest in Breckenridge will also be happening this weekend.

“Since dogs aren’t allowed into Oktoberfest, this is a great event for people to bring their dogs to if they are in downtown Breck,” Jaime Light, owner of the Huneck Gallery, said.There will be a basset playpen and petting area outside the gallery, and refreshments will be provided for both dogs and humans. There will also be a couple of fostered bassets there who will be looking for new homes.Light is also planning to have some activities for the bassets, including a howl-a-thon.”One basset is funny-looking – a herd is quite the spectacle!” she said. “It was so funny last year. People would be coming from the beer tents and would be absolutely astounded by the sight of our herd of bassets.”

The dog-friendly gallery’s own basset, Rosebud, will again be hosting this year’s Flopfest.A portion of the gallery’s sales will go toward High Country Basset Rescue.The gallery will be unveiling the latest collection of Huneck dog-themed furniture and sculpture, and it’s also still featuring guest artist Pat Saunders-White. She recently completed an original pastel for the gallery entitled “Baby Basset.”
