Here's some interesting news.
Elvis sang about them — hound dogs — and most of us tend to think of them as being for the common folk, but those canines of the coon variety are actually pretty special.
So special, in fact, that one coon dog has won its owner more than $1 million in hunting competitions, and a pet cemetery in north Alabama allows only coon dogs to be buried there.
"There's a difference in a coon hound and a coon dog," said Drew Werndli of Huntsville, creator of coondawgs.com and a coon hunter himself. "A coon dog is a coon hound that can tree a raccoon. The dog has to earn the title."
