Many many coonhound photos


Darwin has settled in very well. He doesn't seem too worried about being here. Most of the time apart from on walks, he is asleep! Not sure if it has really sunk in yet that his people aren't coming back for him, but with a bit of luck that will sink in gradually... He is great with the cats, pretty good with other dogs (except Az finds him a bit annoying), clean in the house. Oh yes, and kid-friendly too. He is, however, a bit of a saggedy baggedy old dog to look at...



Hounds come in some very different shapes. Mollydog makes Darwin look extra-dumpy. Poor Darwin!


If I didn't know he was a coonhound, I'd have guessed some sort of basset cross, though his foxhoundy relatives are fairly obvious as well.


Sniffin' sniffin' sniffin!


Upside down


Upside down with *particularly* ridiculous ears...



If I'm honest, Az doesn't like Darwin all that much. Darwin likes Az, except that if he gets carried away with sniffin' sniffin' sniffin at Az, Az becomes peeved and eventually scruffs him. No real damage done, so I'm hoping Darwin will learn to treat Az a little more carefully. That said, both Az and Darwin *really* like home made sardine cake, which causes all differences to be forgotten.


Darwin and his equally lumpy shadow...



Utterly ridiculous ears which flap dramatically in the breeze.

... though no doubt it would be very scary if you *thought* you were being hunted by coonhounds, even if the dogs were actually just running round chasing random squirrels & raccoons and had no idea what they were advertised as doing.

I think it would be scary if you thought you were being hunted by a pack of almost any* dog.

*With certain exceptios: Peke, Yorkie ...

You aren't scared of Yorkies? I'm bloody terrified of Yorkies, they yap and eat your fingers. Am always completely amazed that we get a queue for any Yorkie, no matter how savage the little monster is...

Give me a nice pit bull any day!

...Peke, I'll give you - the poor little creatures are so overbred they can barely breathe without assistance. :-(

For myself, I find them annoying, but not scary.
