US hunting dogs honoured in death

More than just hunters, dogs are an essential part of life in some southern states.

    The tradition of using dogs to hunt is still strong in some parts of the United States.

    Many countries have outlawed using dogs to hunt, but in some southern US states, it is not only legal but an integral part of daily life.

    For many enthusiasts, the dogs are not only friends and hunting companions in life, but even honoured in death.
