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.

Hey, not a single coonhound at "Discover Dogs" though several breeds I admit I had not heard of and at least one I was overjoyed to find in the country at all. (Petit Basset Bleu de Gascogne - which I was delighted to meet as I've always adored the Grand but don't have acres of forest.)

He looks a sweetie. I hope Az will come around.

Az will come round, he's always like this with new fosters. He disapproves of their manners, and their presence in HIS house but he never takes it any further than making huffy faces.

Sometimes he gets quite fond of them in the end : he was just like this with Duke the ginormous lurcher to start with but now if he sees Duke he gets all adoring and kissy!
