Different strokes. I too hate drooling dogs, but Coonhounds aren't typically droolers. I also don't sleep with pets nor can I sit still long enough to have anything on my lap.

I also don't think she's "big". Ace's dog is big. Your dog is small. This is just a dog. Something I won't kill if I fall on it, something that can get in a truck by itself, something that can handle my 6 hour fishing hikes.

Interview on Tuesday. Que sera sera.


Is that a chocolate lab, or a hound?

Having a dog in bed with you is one of
the biggest pleasures of life. He's always
there when you need a buddy, when
you need reassurance that a friend is
there. Dogs give and receive affection
with no reservation, no strings. They
freely give it and freely take it, without
thought or judgement. Unlike women.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Redbone Coonhound. It's the first thing I saw that rung that bell inside me, except for a particular cat breed (Savannah) that I saw some months ago (and could never afford).

Again, different strokes. I've never had a house dog. Mine only came inside when it was cold, and was restricted to the kitchen area only. In my bed? No way. I prefer sleeping alone.

Imagine it's a pretty hefty dog food bill.

I have never met one but of course the "redbone" name is famous.

I wonder if they "bay" or howl all the time, as basset hounds are known to do?

That was me until I got this dog. For
the first couple weeks I had him, he
was miserable sleeping alone so I
let him sleep on my bed. OMG, I
had no idea what I'd been missing
all my life. The connection you form
with a dog when you share all aspects
of your life with him is unreal. He
loves the bed and I love him here
with me. We eat, sleep, do everything
together. I'm closer to him than any
other creature. I think about losing
him every day. It's even worse when they
lose you.

I saw a dog/master reunion on TV the
other day. The dog was stolen and
found six months later. In the video
the dog went bananas at the reunion.
Jumping 3 feet in the air constantly
and yipping and trying to kiss the
guy on his face. The amount of love
and devotion they have for us can
never be matched by any other creature.

well, Face, maybe you're gonna have to consider this one

For some reason she looked older - dogs don't live long so personally I prefer one about this age or so

You treat family that way?

Well, yes. The dog has her own bed.

Smaller dogs can sleep with you, it means
an awful lot to them. And to you, if you
let it.

I certainly am, though it's a long shot. With an interview on Tuesday, a paycheck is, best case, a few weeks away. Then scheduling, finance check, making sure everything is in order to provide... I have a feeling a girl like that is gonna get snatched up quick. We'll see.

Family or friend. If you're rolling around the dirt all day, you're more than welcome in my group and into my home. But clothes and shoes get left at the door. If you are unwilling or unable, you stay in the kitchen. Pops and fishing buddy Jonny L don't mind, so I've no qualms about the dog.
