Redtic, I mean no offense by this post. I only want to make you think about this situation a little bit.
If you don't know the dog in question was Saigon(which is what you said in the last post) then WHY EVEN BRING IT UP?
If the man handleing the dog was as bad as you say he was then do you think he was above lieing about who the dog was? Maybe he was trying to intimidate you. You said yourself he called the dog Bo all night.
Do you think it's possible that maybe Russ didn't have anything to do with this guy and that guy was just being a jerk on his own?
No line of dogs is perfect, not Bellars, not mine and NOT YOURS EITHER. However, I think it is in poor taste to slam a dog like that when you admitt yourself that you don't even know if it was him or not.
Elvis and I have had our differences in the past, especially before I knew how to take him. But there is one thing about it, no matter what Elvis has always shot me straight whether it be good, bad or indifferent. I will bet my last dollar that Elvis will be the first to tell you that Saigon was not perfect, but I will also bet my last dollar that if Elvis said he was a coondog then he was a COONDOG.
Telling it like you see it is one thing. It may get on someones toes, and folks may not like it but the truth is the truth. Telling stories about "I heard this" or "maybe that" is completely different. It seems that this is another case of "it could have been that dog" but you didn't tell us that in the first post, only after someone called your hand.
If you know something for a fact then fine, if you don't maybe it's better left unsaid untill you do. This board is put here for us to bash other hounds, it is here to ask legitimate questions and try to get some good information.
Now I will get off my soap box. I am sorry if I offended you, this post isn't meant that way. It's just one of my pet peeves when I see heresay and rumors propagated as fact.
Let's go huntin
