Beautiful Fall Day
Don and I were up on the hill today surveying the leafy landscape with the dogs. We had another discussion about Woody's history, and whether or not he is a purebred coonhound. I did yet another Google search and came up with a photo of Woody's twin sister, Anna. Except for having a few pounds on the WoodMan, I think it would be hard to tell them apart.
Perhaps you can tell the difference because Woody would not sit so calmly with a live racoon on the sofa.
Anna is a purebred Bluetick Coonhound, so I am thinking he is too. When we got him from the Burlington County Animal Alliance (who had gotten him from a shelter in Virginia) they were guessing either Bluetick or English Coonhound.
I have always wondered what he looked like as a pup, and this last photo is a purebred English Bluetick Coonhound.
Guess that all were correct in their guesses...
