From "Notes by The Way" [Pepacton]
"The hound is a most interesting dog. How solemn and
long-visaged he is,--how peaceful and well-disposed!
He is the Quaker among dogs. All the viciousness and
currishness seem to have been weeded out of him; he
seldom quarrels, or fights, or plays, like other dogs.
Two strange hounds, meeting for the first time, behave
as civilly toward each other as two men. I know a hound
that has an ancient, wrinkled, human, far-away look
that reminds one of the bust of Homer among the Elgin
marbles. He looks like the mountains toward which his
heart yearns so much."
