In memory of JOE MC CLELLAN. (1-13-07)
Loving Husband, friend to all and especially to his beloved Bloodhounds, Bailey his last working Bloodhound and his constant companion Falco, a beautiful German Shepard. Joe was an active volunteer with Southeast Bloodhound Rescue since its start. He didn't know how to say to no to a bloodhound in need. He felt that they all needed love, affection and a job. Without Joe, many dogs used in Search and Rescue today wouldn't have had the chance to show what they were capable. Above is Joe with his last trainee - Gomer - as he loved to call his buddy formally named Watson. Joe will be sadly missed by all who knew him and the many people and dogs that he has touched over the years. He will be especially missed by his loving wife Pat, his family and all of the members of Southeast Bloodhound Rescue.  Joe....Rest is peace, we will continue your work.

In Memory of Peanut Butter Bishop  15 May 1997 - 12 Feb 2009
Born Bloodhound Puppy #4, Peanut Butter Bishop peacefully passed away on 12 Feb 2009. She leaves behind a loving family ( Sean , Carlee, Murphy, Kelsey, Tim & Jim Lawrence ). Although quite a long life for a bloodhound, her time with us was not long enough. Even in her final days, with her nose down on the wooded nature trail, Miss Pea always reminded us that our lives are defined by the paths we choose and the trails we take. You were a great dog and a loyal pal. Ever a force of bloodhound personality, you will be sorrowfully missed, but never forgotten. You ate sausages on Sunday mornings in Wetumpka, & vanilla ice cream in Waterloo. You barked at the UPS Man. You threw slobber in all directions...Thank you for enriching our lives and making us better for having you a part of our family these 11.75 years. You earned your rest.

In Memory of Ellie Mae
February 4, 1998 - June 7, 2011 13 years and 4 months  Loved by Alexis and Shawn Carter
Ellie was born Rebellion Harts The Princess. She was our first bloodhound, and what an introduction to the breed she was. She spent most of her life with her brother Jethro who passed away two years ago and finally is with her again. She was the most ornery alpha female, cost us a fortune in vet bills because of her hobby of eating foreign objects...and was worth every minute of every day that we had with her. Even though she lived longer than most hounds, it still broke our hearts to be separated from her.

In Memory Of WINSTON BROWN BEZTILNY  Dec 12,2000-Mar 8, 2011
