VT Tale No. 2: Other Wonder Hounds of Note

After we got Tess out of the forest Dr. Moo told me about an interesting pair of brothers she'd heard about. They like to drive around the back roads in a flatbed truck. The truck is piled high with dog kennels. In the kennels are bear-hunting hounds. At the top of the kennel pile in the open air sits the oldest, boss hound. He's got his nose in the air, sniffing. When he smells a bear, he sounds the alarm. The brothers pull over, let all the dogs out, and the chase is on.

They almost never kill anything because it's all about the tracking for them. I don't know that I approve of scaring the beejesus out of forest creatures but at least they're not smoking crack.
