happy thanks giving everyone!

5 things that i am thankful for:

1)Christ for his sacfrifice so that i have the hope of eternal salvation

2)My brothers and sisters in christ for without them i would not have the strength i need to survive in this wicked world

3)My parents for providing me with a home and lot's of love

4)my family for supporting through everything

5) my best friends without them i would probably be at EHOVE wasting away the last two years of high school and doing absolutly nothing with my life

and many more i may not exactly be thinking of at this exact moment in time.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

WEIGHT: 45-80 pounds

HEIGHT: 21-27 inches

COAT: Short, dense; a bit coarse to the touch

COLOR: Tricolor, with heavy black ticking in white areas


GROUP: Hound

The fine French hounds of the Gascogne, Por-celaine, Saintongeois and others had been brought to America even before colonial times. These patient, persistent, beautifully voiced hounds continued to be bred in fairly pure form in remote areas of the South.

During the early decades of this century, dog dealers made trips into the Louisiana bayou, the Ozark Mountains and other isolated areas,

bringing out hounds of remarkably pure type. These dogs, mainly of the heavily ticked blue color, were often referred to as Blue Gascons or French Staghounds. Crossed with various foxhounds and curs, they formed the basis of the UKC Bluetick Coonhound.

Because they were registered as English Coon-hounds along with dogs of a very different type, distinct strains of these blue dogs became famous. The Ozark Mountain strain was said to be the closest to pure French and came to prominence in the 1930s. Famous dogs of this strain included "Missouri Valley Echo," "Bailey's Blue Dollar" and "Grant's King Bo."

In the 1920s, the Sugar Creek strain began, with dogs of this bloodline remaining today. They have some old-type Black and Tan in their makeup and are very like the French hounds in their style of hunting. Famous Sugar Creek hounds included the peerless "Blue Bones," who won the first field trial for coonhounds in 1924, and later "Top Notch Drum," "Huey Long," and the prepotent "Cornerstone." Bloodhound, Bluetick, and Porcelaine, as well as Gascogne blood, flowed through the veins of the Old Line strain, another very famous line which included the studs: "Lee's Troop," "Florida Blue" and "Green's Panther." These dogs were much sought after during the late 1930s and the War years, but Old Line is simply gone. The Smokey River and Bugle strains were also prominent in the development of the breed.

Breeders of these blueticked dogs wanted to keep their old style of hunting. They feared a trend to make the majority of hounds registered as English faster and more hot-nosed. To maintain the old-fashioned type, they officially broke away in 1945 and established the breed known as the Bluetick Coonhound.

For a time, blueticked pups from a litter could be registered as Blueticks, and the re-dticked whelps became English Coonhounds. But soon the stud books were closed, and this practice was no more.

Blueticks still have devout followers and are fine coonhounds. But some owners feel these dogs recently have given way to the current trend of foxhound type and speed in order to participate in the competitive events, as the English hound did before them. Those who want the original big, cold-nosed, old-fashioned type have thus converted to the Blue Gascon and the Majestic.

    If you were there, you would know that we've moved on to techniques by which we can study the Bible. These things are relevant for a good foundation, Micki. Just as with everything else in life, once we get through the boring fundamentals we can move on to more exciting matters. Patience. :D
