HareHill’s Running Amok SC
November 16, 2004 – January 13, 2015
He brought a smile to our faces every day and our house has not been the same without him. Everyone who met Catdog fell in love with his antics and personality.
Always happy and on the go, he never sat or laid down to rest during the first 2 years of his life. He made us laugh and feel good, even when he misbehaved – like eating a wallet or a leather jacket or a hat. Despite being a goofy boy, he was also HareHill’s alpha-male and had a very deep bark when called upon.
Why did you call him “Catdog”?
We look for identifying marks to tell the puppies apart when they are very young. A mark on his back resembled half a dog and reminded us of the half-dog/half-cat cartoon character of the same name. And of course, the name stuck. Most of the time we simply called him “Cat” or “Kitty”.
Catdog loved coursing. But it took him a while to understand the why anyone would chase some white plastic bags around a field. During his first outing, he ran straight to the tree line and marked as many trees as possible. Then 2 years later, the light bulb finally turned on and he got it. After that, he couldn’t wait to course and would bark the entire time lure was moving.
