. A Man’s Best Friend”
Not For Sale: Thoroughbred Fox Hounds
Ralph Carson has many best friends if the
saying “A dog is man’s best friend” is true and from
all indications this has been proven time after time.
He is the proud owner of fourteen of the best bred
fox hounds in this part of the country.
Fox hunting is a great thrill and during season
he and his sons are often out at night with the dogs
running foxes. According to the owner, he doubts if
anyone can find a better lot of dogs than the ones
he keeps in his doghouse. They are all throughbreds
and their total cost would amount to quite a tidy
sum if they were put on the market for sale.
Incidentally the dogs are not for sale. He considers
his dogs as members of his family.
Having dogs is quite a lot of fun and pleasure
but in the end you pay for all of this. The dogs are
fed over a ton of bones and meat per year besides
two tons of dog food. The cost of the dog food alone
is nine dollars per hundred pounds.
Ralph Carson and his wife live out in the
country on Route 1 and this enables him to keep
this many dogs. He and his entire family are dog
lovers and take a lot of interest in his many dogs.
He invites anyone interested in dogs to come out
and look over his fine collection.
