Our little girl, the Mountain Cur

Our family...
We have one son, Quinlan, he's three years old; 
Three indoor cats, Smokey, Ezzy, and Wetherby; 
Six barn cats (possibly an additional two if they stick around after winter);
And last May we got a puppy, a five-month old Mountain Cur, Genny.

For those of you who are saying "What is a Mountain Cur?" I was the same way when my husband brought her home. So I did some research. The Mountain Cur, also known as the Appalachian Pioneer Dog, is the dog the Pioneers relied on for food and protection. They are wonderful family dogs and hunt small game, but better known as Squirrel dogs. 

Genny is of the Kemmer Stock, a beautiful brindle, with soft, floppy ears and a bobbed tail. She just turned one and is bout 40 lbs. She LOVES to climb trees and run, man, she is fast! 

She is a wonderful addition to Magnolia Holler! 
(Though, I don't think the squirrels and crayfish agree!)

Here is more info if you're interested.
