I like all the hounds, but Bloodhounds just feel like a piece of Americana. Most of the dogs I have owned in my life are in the herding group. Our current four-legged family member, Molly (German Shepherd) is in this group. When I was in college my Mother bought a Border Collie for me and that smart but trouble-making dog stayed with me until I moved back to Knoxville in 1997 when she was put down. I still get excited whenever I see a Border Collie and luckily they are a fairly popular breed in the south. I’ll post my feelings about the winner of Best in Show tomorrow.
