Re: Bloodline???

I see and hear many who use the term Bloodline in reference to whatever the latest rage of the age is in the hound dog world. Occasionally their use of the term is legitimate. Often though, there really is no bloodline per say, but merely an outstanding individual that is being widely bred and perha...

Do you think your English Foxhounds have the same ancestors in their pedigrees as my dogs?
No. But if you are relying on observable traits alone could they be?

I'm of the understanding that a bloodline is defined by common ancestry as well as the demonstration of common characteristics.

Re: Bloodline???

Blew the dust off the old Webster's Dictionary and looked up "bloodline", one line definition - "Direct line of descent, strain; pedigree" Checked the trusty Thesaurus, "One's ancestors or their character" So if the dogs I own all have good line control, know where the point of loss is and consiste...

Bloodline???

What would be the correct definition of the term "Bloodline" as applied to beagles or other hunting hounds?

Re: Latest reproducing rabbit hounds

...............also, why does the stud get all the interest/credit for "producing" these "qualities"? Give me a good reproducing bitch and I can take her to the stud of my choosing that I feel compliments her strengths and weaknesses. A good bitch line is as valuable or more so in my book. Ideally y...

Re: Maine

Sometimes these kinds of gatherings can go south.........for men and hounds, Guys who have never met in person, gathering to put down a bunch of dogs that have never run together and in the midst of tough conditions can sometimes spell disaster all the way around. What a wonderful surprise to watch ...

Re: known dogs

I agree that the title FC should not be a primary consideration when looking for a good hunting dog. Yet it certainly should not be a disqualifier either. I spoke with Vic Costanza about Romo and he said Romo was first and foremost a hunting dog deluxe. Not to say that every FC is. It's up to the ow...

It depends on where you are hunting and the conditions. But most important it depends on the style that you most enjoy.
Beagling is supposed to be fun. If you like them, you feed them, run what you like

Re: people you can trust

Depends........who do you know well enough that would sell you an "excellent dog" knowing what It is you like and expect in an excellent dog? One persons definition of an "excellent" dog and yours might be 2 different things. I don't need more than one hand to count the number of people who I would ...

Re: MY FIRST HARE HUNT

Glad you enjoyed yourself. Those memories will stay with you for years! I've only run cottontail with my hounds a couple days. I made a trip down to TN to my buddy Shady Grove's place to pick up a pup and stayed a week in 2012. The dogs I had at the time did OK I thought. If I lived where I only had...

Re: Goodbye is never easy.............

Sorry about your hound. It never never never gets easier. I had to put down my best all time hound this spring , peaches. She was a gun dog deluxe, honest as they come, clean running dog and a total pushover at home with the kids. Never once barked in the kennel ( just like her mom,grandmom ) . Los...

Goodbye is never easy.............

Had to bid farewell to an old and faithful 4 legged friend this morning. Hare Hammer'n Black Reba was laid to rest at ten years of age. She was not perfect but provided a lot of years of enjoyment. I'll remember her best as a snow dog. Never had a day where she could not circle a hare to the gun on ...

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....
