I'd really appreciate the negatives. Bear in mind my life has included a boston terrier, then a white german shepherd, then a wondrous heinz 57 rescue rocket dog, to just the most amazing ridgeback, to being the person owned by the most wonderful breed of all catahoulas. I love all breeds. My husband wants to move onto a blue tick or a black and tan. I met the most wonderful black and tan called Zydeco Girl when she was playing with my Ruby Starr. Any body run these hounds? Real money in spring. No problem on price when it comes to dogs.
