book of the same name by Robert Ashcom
All foxhunters know that a lost foxhound on the road is a situation that cannot be ignored. There are many possible outcomes, most of them bad. In fact, Jerry Miller, MFH of the Iroquois Hunt (KY) announces to all his members that if they see a lost hound and get it safely back to kennels in their car, he will personally pay for a complete car cleaning! It’s often not an easy job to coax a lost hound into your vehicle, as anyone knows who has tried it. Here’s a story of how one clever woman did it.

I would really like some advice. I have a second year bitch who is very shy around MEN, just men. I can tell you she has never been abused in any way by any man staff or otherwise. She just does not like men. The men who come to the kennels work with her everytime to get her over it. My worry is that she will get away and none of our male staff members or any guy on the road will be able to catch her. Any ideas for me? Mrs. Dulany Noble MFH, Carrollton Hounds, MD.

Would you be comfortable sending her home with one of your male staffers or masters for a month? With him to feed, walk on leash, and generally socialize her?

She is still a little shy with men, but much better now. The advice I got was to ignore her and not pay any attention to her. It worked! Thanks for your comment!
