Catahoula is a dog breed from Louisiana. I believe the breed came around from the Indians that lived in northern Louisiana. From my understanding they were raised to hunt/protection and be nanny type dog for younger members from the tribe. Ya know, turn the kids loose with a catahoula and babysitting taken care of. They are very loyal, and fearless. Very very aware, high energy. Being from the swamp area, they where used especially to hunt hogs.
Some ranchers use them for herding duties. Very limited knowledge on such topics but I have been told their high energy, agile ways, no back down attitude, and crazy wild colored eyes ( most have a blue and brown eye mixture) make them a great candidate for herding. Can't exactly remember the mix of dogs that make up a Catahoula but I know black mouth cur makes a big portion of the bleedline.
My female is 78 lbs but looks 45ish. Very deceiving build. She is black, gray, brown, tan, and white. Lots of coloration and spotted like a leopard. One blue eye and the other is brown on bottom and the upper half is blue. Very vocal dog. Not a lap dog but a the foot of the owner type dog. She is very cautous around new people and will keep a eye on ya but very approachable. Never had a problem with her being aggressive unless it was called for.
They are considered a rare breed because ther are a north American breed that isn't widely know thru out the world. Can't remember if the a.k.c. recognize them as a official breed. Hope that helps-tex

Thank you Tex. Kinda what I had figured. I'm starting to think it's a loose term up these ways for a "mutt" type of cattle dog ?

Kinda' like don't know for sure what he is lets call him a "Catahoula" best as I can figure anyway ?

(edit) check this out. Don't look like cow dogs to me ? not saying they couldn't though.

Here's a pic of a catahoula cur, complete with merle coloration and the 'glass' eye:
 -
Both of those characteristics are recessive traits that seem to have become a common phenotype of catahoulas...very cool looking and obviously well built 'working' dogs!

Tex, for the sake of the dogs, I'd hope any of the money grubbing dog registries NEVER recognize any more breeds! That's a sure fire way for them to go the way of a 'designer dog', for their interesting appearance, alone...

Curs are a uniquely American product, historically bred on merit, rather than appearance. In the case of a catahoula, it would appear those dogs developed in a relatively isolated region, which allowed those recessive colorations to become more common, due to inbreeding/line breeding. That's how various strains of curs develop...

There doesn't seem to be distinct 'recipe' for a cur dog, and varying amounts of hound, terrier, bulldog, etc. have been infused over years of hodgepodge 'working dog' breeding. I.e., if the dogs work, they get bred!

Amazingly, that's how cur dogs seem to share similar 'attitudes', as you described of your catahoula. Loyal to family, protective & wary of strangers without being blindly aggressive. Tenacious & driven capable hunters...

Pretty much, a good cur dog is gonna protect your family like a German Shepard, hunt as hard as any hound, work long as any border collie, love your family as any lap dog, and be smart enough to KNOW when to assume ANY of those roles in a heartbeat. Truly special canines & blessed to have one...

As for snow we had a blizzard that brought 45 mph winds and about 12" of the white gold here about a month ago. It took myself and both neighbors that share a driveway a good 3 hours of tractor work to get a path out to the highway. My tractor being the smallest, I felt a bit over whelmed. SO, not a week later I had an upgraded tractor sitting in my driveway. Went from 24 hp Kubota and not much more than a wheel barrow front end loaded to 43 hp JD with 6' bucket and my neighbor helped me get his pto driven snow blower hooked up on my new ride. Of course you know how that works, haven't needed to plow snow since.
But our ground is still white which is nice to see. Should be nice and green come spring around here.

Is it hunting season yet? I hate summer!

Of all the hats I wear, the one that gets the most comment is my green "Runs like" John Deer.

But yeah, designer dogs. Around here, you know what's the "IN THING"? French Bulldogs. These people are friggin' nuts! $6,000 or so? I will say this though, they are cute and they all seem to have a winning personality. The widow lady behind me bought her's in San Diego and that's about 125 miles from here. And, I never hear a peep out of him. Now, the bitch next door has a "Carolina Dog" and she pretty proud of it. Aggressive mutt, and I don't like it, one bit. She used to have a Irish setter. That fucking dog would run like hell every time she was incautious and it got out, but personality wise, very friendly, not like the one she has now.

So, everybody has to have something specific. Can't just have a Heinz 57 variety, has to be a recognized breed.

Good hunting. El Bee

Dave A, your dog looks more Aussy with a mix of something else.
We looked into the Catahoula's years ago. But they weren't quite what we were looking for. Got into the Kemmer Stock Mtn. Curs.
Now have a black mouth cross cur. He's been in the house the last 3 nights we've been below zero last 3 nights.
It snowed over night not sure how much yet.
Had to break out the sleds the other day to go pull traps. To much drifted snow to get the truck up the canyons. It was nice though could ride the machines right to some of the sets before having to hoof it up the mountain side. No we weren't catching anything. Area is trapped out anything within driving distance is trapped out up here. Very tuff year for trappers.

Hey Fred, that's a good looking dog. Is it like a stock photo or do you know him?

On the home front: woke up to a steady rain this morning. It seems to me, this is one of the wettest springs I can remember? I'm probably jumping the gun, I think it's probably still winter, right? Whatever, we have had a lot of rain this year, the GLOBAL WARMING drought is definitely over! Call it what you want, but this CLIMATE CHANGE sure proves whatever the hell you want it to prove, donut? People are so friggin' stupid! IDIOTS! This little cunt, AOC is sure getting attention with her stupid ideas. And, mainstream Media is eating it up. Big time Democrats are all on board and it's unbelievable! There is no doubt, Liberalism is a mental illness, being a Democrat involves mental illness!

I cannot believe a majority of Americans have driven off the deep end and buy into this garbage? At some point, logic and reality has to rise. The two sides are so far apart, that I see no basis for cooperation whatsoever? How can you compromise with such stupidity? Academia be damned! that's the root of this evil, this friggin' CANCER! Liberals have a rotted brain, intelligence can't allow for the ignorant things they believe in. How can you deprogram 60 years of earnest socialist propaganda? And normal people have been asleep at the switch while zealots filled young minds with total bullshit. We are two generations deep onto this hogwash and I see no way out of it. Is it rational to think of another civil war over Leftist ideology? I can't really imagine it. But as Edmond Burke once said: for evil to triumph all that's required is for good men to do nothing....something like that?

Maybe I won't be around to see it, but it's not that far off.

Good hunting. El Bee

File photo, Leonard. Picked it cuz it looked to represent the physical qualities of a 'Houla, as well as that 'no nonsense' expression...
As for Occasional Cortex, bless her heart! She's the best thing that ever happened to conservatives! The ignorant zeal with which she pushes socialism is nothing short of miraculous! And the way she's splintering the demon party into factions of communists vs. outright criminals is truly a thing of beauty...

You Go Girl!!!!

Fred I thought you had posted a pic for Texan my mistake but a beautiful dog nonetheless.
2" of snow last nite just put my pups in the kennel They seem to really like staying in my office overnite their behavior gets a little better each nite. Hoping for a sunny day so I can bathe them the nite before and leave them in the sun the next day.

I like the occasional cortex comment , but that might be a compliment for this vacuous pile of flesh that is one empty melon . I also agree she is doing much needed damage to her own party rock on Stupid !

I can't get over the groupthink of Democrats. It's good to be united, but they are in lockstep on every issue. When this stupid girl says something, they support her with their dying breath. It's amazing, really! This empty headed chick spouts her socialist ideas and they fall all over themselves agreeing with everything, no matter how outrageous.

Damn! I wish Republicans could unite that way! Take that asshole, Paul Ryan, for instance. Turns out, his wife is a flaming Liberal. His actions start to make sense. I think he's been brainwashed!

On the bright side, I think Hillary is starting to grasp reality. I think she knows that she has too much to lose if she suits up and her number ain't called. That would be the ultimate humiliation, rejected by her party because she's not liberal enough. A cruel blow but she richly deserves it. In a sane world, she would be worried about staying out of jail.

See, that's what I mean. there it is, so obvious! she's guilty and yet, the stupid Democrats want to look at Trump's tax returns. And, our side has nothing to say. WTF?
