    The family of Beatniks and I went to Operation Kindness yesterday and met the sweetest Black and Tan Coonhound. We decided she was perfect for our brood. But as we were doing the paperwork I saw that she had not been spayed yet. So long story short, she has to stay until Tuesday.

    Man, we miss her. But Tuesday is coming and we are excited to have our girl join us!

    Coonhounds are cool. My first was a runt bluetick that thought we were blood.

    Thanks Shreve.

    Her name, as it sits right now, will be Lucy Sweetie. I foresee a lot of quoting Ricky Ricardo when I get home. According to the shelter she is 1yr 9mos old.

    She is heartworm positive so we will be moving through that protocol with her over the next few months. Also she just had a litter of pups but we don't know what happened to them, they may be at the original intake shelter.

    Only 48 hours until she is hanging out with me on the couch!

    Awesome! Aside from their working abilities, they make great family dogs :)
    We got our Piper in March of 2013 and she's been a wonderful addition!

    I've heard they get a bad rap as 'smelly' and 'dumb', but that certainly hasn't been my experience! She's a great dog, as was our last beagle mix. They do need a bit of exercise, but nothing crazy. Because I don't have a fenced in yard, I walk her a mile to a mile and a half a day and that's fine for her! And if it's raining for a couple days and we don't go for a walk I can see she gets a little 'antsy', but nothing crazy... nothing destructive.

    She loves toys, particularly squeaky ones, and loves to tear the eyes out and rip open the toy to get the squeaker. She can't seem to open the long, snake-like squeaky toys though, so that may be a good buy for you :) . She really loved elk antlers, but she eventually broke the tip of a molar on one, so we stick to Nylabones now for that sort of thing.

    Anyway - congrats again and best of luck with the new addition!!

    That is really good information! Thanks so much! My daughter picked out the sacrificial squeak toy last night, an octopus. I will definitely give the snake type toys a good hard look to keep her from destroying her stuff.

    Again, thanks!

    Funny that you mention the octopus... this was taken 2 days after we got it... eviscerated :)

    She still loves playing with it though :)
