Sorry for the pun. When you're stuck in Red Bay at the service center for weeks this is a highlight of the tourist stops. This memorial to the all important "southern coon dog" is worth viewing when on the way to Rattlesnake Saloon.

I was told that this was one of the "to Do" places in this part of Alabama. It is unique. The highlight was the local guy with a large knife working on a stack of cantaloupe wedges. He grew up there and had seen the first dog "Troop" being buried.

Off the beaten track but my son wanted to go there. Interesting but basic - it is a cemetery after all. Bit of history. Worth the drive if you are a dog lover and into offbeat places to visit

We traveled the back roads today, all good roads, to visit the Cemetery since we were in that area. People loved their dogs as seen by the headstones ~ never been to any place like this before. There is a picnic area and outhouses are also available. The area was clean and well kept.
