    Hi rose
    Sorry to hear about your hound. If it’s any consolation though, He’s gone to that great dog house in the sky, where the bowl is always full and the fields are always long. I lost my dog, titan, a coon hound boxer mix (interesting mix btw ) recently so empathize with your loss. Hang in there though.

      Mine was also a coon-boxer mix. Off topic, in a dystopian future, we would have something to eat every day. Great hunters, great territorial defenders. Merci, sha.

        So sorry to hear about your dog.

        I’ve not long got a new one after a year or two of mourning, he is the light of my life.

        Pretty sure Pierre has left the building, suspect he ticked off admins once too often with all his “I know something you don’t garbage”.

        There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
