Rhodie

Rhodie


I decided it was time for a new Bluetick pup in the house. Fargo was a veteran and I wanted him around to help teach the new pup how to be a cool Coonhound. I had a Treeing Walker hound girl in Rescue who gave birth to 6 pups. All of the pups looked like Blueticks. I chose one pup based on his confidence and toy drive. Rhodie got his name from the ridge of hair that stands up on the bridge of his nose. I am so glad I decided to get another puppy when I did because a short time later we lost Fargo. Hehad already helped teach Rhodie though.

Rhodie is a small boy. He was the runt of the litter and his mom was a smaller girl. He is a really driven boy though and definitely does NOT have a small voice. Rhodie complains constantly at practice when he is not running. He has just started practicing the jumps and he already loves being out in the lanes. He is confident and great with both people and other dogs. I think he will be relatively easy to train.  I look forward to once again having a Bluetick Coonhound in Flyball. Fargo I am sure would be proud to see Rhodie carry on for the breed in the sport.
