What the heck is a Catahoula?

Tex and Clyde are both Leopard Spotted Catahoula Hound dogs. They’re not really hounds according to Wikipedia, but that’s what everyone refers to them as. If you took Tex on a hunting trip, you might write a strongly worded letter to Wikipedia, because he’s very small animal intense and hound like.

Tex is about 55 lbs and Clyde weighs in closer to 70 lbs.

Both attract a lot of attention together because of their unique looking coat which is a silver gray with black spots similar to merle coats in other dogs. I pretty much died when I saw a merle Great Dane walking down the street one day (I re-named him “Giant Clyde”).

Both of our Catahoula’s are hilarious, loyal, and very different, and that’s just why we love them.
