  1. Nova Scotian Duck Tolling Retriever!

    Oh wait, that’s a real one, my bad.

    If I have a part-Lab, part-Pointer, part-Boston Terrier, and declare her to be a “Atlantic Coast MicroLab,” is that a “Breed?” I mean, didn’t some farmer declare at some time that a Plott Hound was a specific kind of hunting dog, and therefore was a “Breed?” Can’t I do the same?

    So add “Antlantic Coast MicroLab.”

    • One of my all time favorite dog breeds. I’ve had Springers my whole life but one day…..

    • What is a Breed?
      Deep Down inside?
      But some farmyard dog?
      Given a name?

      You have got to love the Cur’s such as the Plott.

      For the following reasons.

      They give Cur’s a good name, until Plott’s and Cataloola’s came along Cur was a derisive term.

      The Appalachians in the South love them, gives them pride in something besides the usually unsavory things they take pride in.

      The best beast in my life, supposedly had some Plott in him. Brindled, Black tongue, kind but fearless.

      Miss him as much as I miss anything.

      Stop for Coffee in the mountains of Tennessee, need something to talk about that is remotely reasonable. Talk about dogs, start with Plotts in Tenessee, further south probably Cataloola’s or something.

  2. The ChihuaDane

  3. The South Carolina Roacher.

    That’s what we always called the cranked up little feral anklebiters that are indigenous to the Low Country.
