Hey everyone, I'm Kate and I'll be your president this month! Thanks so much for your support! I'm really excited for this month's breed boost, the Black and Tan Coonhound! It's one of my main breeds here on FP and I look forward to giving it a boost this month! Please check out the forum post for all the details on the breed boost and to check out our awesome prizes! Good luck! We can do it! Remember! Don't retire any Black and Tan Coonhounds this month!
Current Registrations: 1,922!
Stretch Goal: 1,925
16 November 2019 - We're about halfway through the month and we're getting close to reaching out goal! I bought some store Black and Tan Coonhounds to help out (but I obviously won't be participating in the contest, so winning it is still fair game for anyone who wants to try!) because I really want to see us reach our goal! 2 weeks is still plenty of time to buy some store dogs and get them to level 5. I believe in y'all and I know you can do it! Don't give up!
Black and Tan Coonhound » Fun facts!
• The Black and Tan Coonhound was the first Coonhound breed registered by the AKC!
• Black and Tan Coonhounds are a fairly old breed! They descend from the Talbot Hound, an 11th century English hound breed favored by William I, Duke of Normandy! They were eventually crossed with English Foxhounds and Bloodhounds here in the US to create the modern-day Black and Tan Coonhound.
• Black and Tan Coonhounds aren't just used to hunt raccoons and possums. They're also used to hunt large game like deer, bear, and even mountain lion!
