What a great Redbone, Gatorbuzz--are you going to hunt him?

Yes, rainy days are sad days for my BCs! And, since they associate rain with thunder, rainy days are scary, hide-in-the-bathtub all day kind of days!
My all-time favorite foster dog was a smooth coat that looks a bit like your lovely fellow. Here's Petey:

We don't formally hunt with her, but we live on ten acres. She hunts on her own every night. She trees raccoons, opossums and corners armadillos all the time. She'll pretty much bay anything that moves. She's cornered snakes and even tries to tree lizards on the side of the house sometimes. lol. She is a nut, but we love her.

BTW, great BC! Our neighbor has one (she has a sheep herd of about twenty head). My dog plays with hers all the time. They are pretty hilarious together. You should see it. The BC tries to herd the Redbone and the Redbone tries to chase the BC while being herded.

Honobob,
Yes the one on the right is in fact a Border Collie. We rescued him from certain death on a highway 11 years ago and think he is 14 now. He has seizures on and off which we have found come with the breed. The more fat (butter, cheese) we give him the fewer seizures he has. He seems to like to "herd" us around and is happiest when he has us all in the same room.
He is smart. He is also the most stubborn dog my husband (the Dog lover) has ever seen. He refuses to play ball with my husband but will bring the ball to me (who doesn't want to play)and drop it in my lap. Trying to walk him on a leash is a struggle though at 14 he has mellowed out a lot. He no longer jumps over our sofas any more like he did when we first got him. Being hit by 3 cars when he ran away from us and getting an artificial hip and shattered front leg repaired stopped that noise.

Tibbar, I've fortunately never had any with seizures but that is interesting that higher fats reduce the severity. Ours are mostly all ball hounds and will bring the ball to whoever has on dress pants, as a rule. Obstinate though, about most things.

I've got 3 classic black/whites right now, plus my backup brown dog Carl dog. I just placed a lovely red/white foster with a family on Sunday. We've had 15 border fosters iand maybe another 5 mixes or what-have-you over the years. Plus the five resident cats. Good thing I have a patient husband.
Glad that you have had a good long ride with yours--Grace is 14, too. The teens is when we finally get to come home to a house that looks somewhat like it did when we left it that morning!

Gator, that is the best life ever for a coonhound, as you know! BCs are funny about other dogs--they either ignore them or herd them. I bet those two are quite a sight!

Sarah in SC,
The picture I posted is probably the last time the 2 dogs were that close to each other. We have come to the conclusion the BC doesn't like the blond dog(inherited from my daughter). The BC can't stand anyone to pay her any attention and will come over and chew on her neck. They played together when the blond dog was a pup but now (5 years later) they just avoid each other. Good thing we have a big house!

See, now that takes all the sexiness out of it.

"Hey...can I pet your Schnauzer" sounds good.

"Oh my god, look at the size of that giant Schnauzer" on the other hand...

I use a picture of my dog, a 6 year old Shih Tzu, as my avitar. That's the only pix I have on this computer. Grandkids were visiting and dressed him up in his denim Harley Davidson hat. He used to wear hats a lot when his hair was long and he wore a pony-tail on top of his head...kept the hat in place. He thinks he's far too old for such silliness now, but he dotes on the grandkids, too...and lets them dress him in various hats, mardi gras beads, etc. Good boy!

Here are our "babies". Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

Reggie is the tri-color and Laci (female) is the Blenheim. New to us June 2007 as 12 week old puppies.

Here they are at about 7 months.

These two travel well in the RV and have been in the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans already.

Do you FT RV? FT RVers are with their dogs 24/7 and treat their dogs like their children...spoiled children. While I was in a state park several years ago I heard a guy say, "If I have a second life, I want to come back as an RV dog!"

We don't full time but do plan on spending several months a year in the RV.

Spoiled? Most family dogs are spoiled to some degree. Ours are spoiled are but in a good way. We don't have kids between us so the dogs are our "kids".

Here is another photo. As you can see they are also very bright as they are checking stocks while on the road.
