New pup around the house…..call him Smokey.

Anyone that knows me also knows that I love dogs. Big ones, little ones and basically everything in between. Since I adopted my first stray beagle at age 4 or so, I have owned several Rots and Labs. Now this little fellow is the latest addition to our pack.
So what do you think he is? Silver Lab? Weimaraner? Mountain cur? Nope. This little fellow is a Texas Blue Lacy. To be honest, I had never heard of this breed until a good friend by the name of Clifford Neames started raising them a few years ago. Since 2005, the Lacy has been the official State Dog of Texas. I don’t know what it takes to become the State Dog in a place like Texas, but I can tell you he is a handfull. True to his breeding, he wants to bay everything with which he comes into contact. Dogs, people, cats……you name it. Only time will tell if he becomes a good deer blood dog, but with his family history this pup is on the right track to say the least.
