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.

I recently went to a local festival in rural western Virginia, where one of the highlights of the day was the coonhound trials. There was a swimming race where a scent was attached to a rope pulley over a small lake and the dogs were set to chase it by swimming through the lake, and another where the dogs were tested on how well they reacted to a 'treed' scent.

I have to say, most of the dogs there looked rather lumpen, so it's not just Darwin. ^_^

Thanks! It is probably good news if Darwin is *supposed* to look lumpy. Though I'm not sure how I could go about making him less lumpen anyway. :-D
