The Pavarotti of Hounds

At the dog park, today, was a Redbone Coonhound. I'd never seen one before, and it was beautiful. We've met Bluetick Coonhounds, Bloodhounds, Beagles, Foxhounds, Black and Tan Coonhounds, Basset Hounds, and now a Redbone. I've heard them all yell and I have to say, when it comes to yelling, Ray blows them all out of the water. I don't know if they were trying to breed a hound dog that could yell louder than any other dog on the face of the earth, but I think they did it with him. He has an AMAZING voice. He is the Pavarotti of hounds. He makes all other hounds seem like Justin Bieber. I found myself thinking that if I were a raccoon in a tree and had a pack of Ray's under me, no hunter would be necessary. I would die of a heart attack. Maybe that's what they were trying to do when they bred Ray, save money on bullets. There was just that one teeny, tiny problem....
