Re: Cruz Control X Strange Daze Bella

My condolences on your loss of a nice young hound. The Lymes disease and other tick bourne diseases can be devastating to our 4 legged canine partners. The cost for prevention can be ridiculous as well but as you stated it needs to be taken seriously. Hope you're able to find another of his caliber....

Re: Brammlet Female

Glad your female is making you happy. These tick borne diseases are becoming a real issue and can be expensive , both in prevention and treatment when its required. Here in Northern New England ticks were almost non existent for years. Rarely would you see one on a dog. Now I go over my dogs after e...

Re: Brammlet Female

If she wasn't checked for Ehrlicosis/Ehrlichia, which is also a tick born disease, might want to get her checked for that. Know a couple guys here in the NE that have bought a couple coon hounds out of the south that have had that. Screws them up pretty good. Supposedly its treatable but from what I...

Ditto Bowguy. God often hides pearls in the midst of our trials..........we just need to dig deeper at times to find them.

Re: Gone With the Wind

Not sure any of us are winning or loosing Bowguy but I do hope you win that fight with the brain tumor and that your eye is returned to full function. Funny how things we often think are issues or problems pale in comparison to what really matters in life. You'll be in my prayers for restoration of ...

Re: Gone With the Wind

OK, here comes my 2 cents. I have come to appreciate both camps in this discussion. 1st off, kudos to anyone who knows what they want in a hound and has the discipline to stick to their scruples in keeping what pleases them. Don't care what format your running if you trial regularly with the desire ...

Re: Gone With the Wind

I learned a long time ago there's only one person my hounds need to please. As long as they do that life's good for them!! ;)

Re: Gone With the Wind

A good medium to upper medium speed dog that can run the line with minimal losses while staying focused will wear out a lot of "fast" dogs. Often from the middle of the pack. That being said if you've ever owned one that can run the line with speed and accuracy with minimal losses you will never for...

Re: Puppy vaccines

I've had (2) different occasions where pups have had a reaction to the Lepto shot. It happens fast, within 5 minutes or less and if it does you better get them to the vet pronto. Vet was able to save both but it was expensive both times. Now I take them to a vet for their first and 2nd Lepto shot so...

Re: best time to raise a litter

I can tell you from years of experience when you cut loose with Shady Grove you can bet his dogs will be in it to the end! He's always kept and dropped quality dogs no matter where in the country he turns 'em loose!! :nod:

Re: best time to raise a litter

If my 8 month old young dog at the start of the season and 11 months old at the close of season can't run with it's older kennel mates and contribute than they are not what I'm looking for. I hear a lot about it but I've yet to see one of the ones I raise,start,hunt get "blown up". As always JMHO. ...

Re: Summer feed

Not sure if I was among the class labeled as distinguished gentleman or not..................but here's my response: I've not been without at least (1) running hound, either beagle or coon hound, for 1 second of 1 day for the last 41 years. I've always fed my dogs in the same manner with the excepti...

Never switch feeds...just feed less....for me it works and the dogs also.....Good luck!
Ditto for me! I feed about 1/4 to 1/3 less in summer than I do in winter. Also found I was able to feed less in the winter months when I installed hound heaters in the dog boxes. Big difference!
