RB......A real nice scan from a real piece of art. The dogs appear to be composites from fox hounds or native hounds, notably Walkers, Triggs, Julys, Trumbos, redbones,balck & tans, blue-ticks.....although just about any dog can tree a cougar (shepherd, airedales, mongrels, even wire haired fox terriers) it takes a well trained hound to work out a cold trail and follow a cat to it's bed and then jump it. When I was into it, I preferred a cross between a bloodhound and a foxhound. A true bloodhound will putter around all day on a hopelessly cold trail and you will never jump a cat, and their feet aren't that tough either. Whereas you cross them with a foxhound or a native hound, you have a dog that will work all day on a good cold trail, and jump and tree a cat, but more importantly, they will hold the cat until you can get there for a shot. Sometimes this can be quite awhile. Anyway, enough boring you on hound hunting.....Thanks for the pics and keep them coming!
