Far above our expectations! It was interesting to see the love and devotion of the coon dog owners in keeping the cemetery neat and decorated. First time we saw pennies on tombstones. Had to google the meaning.

The road seems a bit long and winding, traveling through pretty hills, but it is worth it. The epitaphs at the cemetery will pull at the heart-strings of dog lovers especially. Wish I knew the significance of the coins placed on the graves. New outhouses...More
