We had to euthanize our dear old Henry last week. It was a function of old age and intervertebral disc degeneration. He was a great coonhound and he had a pretty good life. We adopted him from ABTCR. I thought I'd share a few pics of him and some of his Basset and Plott Hound buds.

I'll be getting Gambler this weekend, hopefully. He'll hold the coonhound endowment then. It's a lifetime tenure. AB&TC AVAILABLE DOGS - GAMBLER

Thanks for all your thoughts. We're pretty sure Henry exceeded his life expectancy but it's always hard to say goodbye no matter that it's the right thing to do. He was a pretty stoic and low maintenance dog and 10 of him would have been no trouble. And even though he was so dark and looked like Darth Vader he was a very friendly dog, no surprises. He would have made a lousy watchdog though, but I'm glad of that.

I certainly will get some pictures up of Gambler. I hear he's very submissive, so we'll be working on his confidence.

I'll also get up some video of Harvey the Basset taking it to his boxer/terrier/pit bull buddy Roscoe.
