Today I visited the Coon Dog Cemetery. While I have never owned a coon dog, I have owned dogs that were extremely dear to me. What they say about a dog being man's best friend, is so true. Losing a dog is like losing a family member. It is touching to see this cemetery and tribute to such dedicated dogs.

This cemetery is a beautiful tribute to the dogs so loved by their owners. I am a singer/songwriter originally from Alabama, but now live in NC and have written a song about the Coon Dog Graveyard honoring the late greats buried there and mentioning many of their names. I'd love to plan a tour down that way that coincides with the Labor Day celebration and share some music with you all. I think many would appreciate the song as a tribute to their long lost friends.

I went to the Cemetery yesterday as I was traveling from Pickwick Lake back to Atlanta. I followed two biker couples in and almost turned around twice before finally arriving. They were so nice and from Georgia, as well. I loved the place. The flowers on every grave made these graves more well-cared for than most people cemeteries. I grew up in Mississippi and my daddy and brother never hunted coons. They did hunt squirrel and just about everything else. I do know of the historic love and affection owners feel for hunting dogs and coon dogs, in particular. This was well worth the long, long drive into the Alabama backwoods to get there! I am going back if I ever pass through that part of Alabama again.

I have three redbones and a black and tan currently. I soooo love what this cemetery symbolizes, and write profusely about my dogs learning to hunt, and enriching my life. I MUST visit!

My wife, 8 year old son and I visited Coon Dog Cemetery last Saturday. What a charming and respectful site for beloved coon dogs now past. My son requested we return in a few years, and hopes we will not find too many new inhabitants. Wonderful visit!

I visited the cemetery on September 15, 2015. It was a long way away from western Canada, but very worth the trip. While visiting, I met some very lovely Alabama ladies, and one of them had all kinds on newspaper clippings about the cemetery to share. The interaction with these ladies made my trip! The cemetery was wonderful and well taken care of. Lots of loved pets. I'm very glad I went, and had been anticipating this trip since I rescued my Black and Tan 8 years ago. Thanks for the memories!

I had heard of the cemetery some months back. While in the area for a seminar I saw a sign, and after 18 miles, found it! It is a lovely, poignant setting with an aura of peace and love. An early fall breeze was ruffling the treetops and I felt I could almost hear the baying of the hounds. I think I would prefer to be buried in the companionship of these hounds than in the company of my human counterparts. I hope to visit again.

Looking forward to visiting when we see relatives in Alabama. Our rescue black and tan has changed our lives and we love him. Our neighbors are not all so happy, but his baying is music to our ears.

I visited Ole Blue and spread around a few pennies. This is a great place to pay respect to your coon dog. June 15, 2015

We visited the Coon Dog Cemetery today. Interesting. Learning about the coins on the graves was fascinating.

Made a visit today, cool place. Just wondering what the meaning of the pennies?

A tradition of loved ones will not be forgotten and to bring good luck to the coin tosser like tossing a coin in a wishing well.

My uncle, Edsel Thompson, raised coon dogs and had a beagle name Shorty that won a state competition 40+ years ago (picture on the front page of Montgomery paper). I bet Edsel knew about this place. This is definitely going on my bucket list.

I seen this coon dog cematary back in 2009. It was scary on the road there. But I loved it and took asome pics. Our dogs and other animals are so special and seeing this just made this more so. i don't have a coon dog but 2 French BullDogs and with MS and now home more than ever I trully dread the day they are gone.

Found this site after watching the movie Sweet Home Alabama had a scene in this cemetery and I was curious if the cemetery really existed. Would love to visit it sometime. Great tribute to man's best friend.

We visited this cemetery in August of this year and was very impressed the way it was layed out. The area was very peaceful. Brought back memories of early childhood.

I just found this in an article called The 5 Most Beautiful Pet Cemeteries. Some of the cemeteries. Out of the 5 mentioned, as beautiful as they all were, not one of them came even close to how beautiful the coon dog cemetery is. Just reading the story and looking at the pictures, you can literally feel the sadness, the joy, the pride, and the love that lie in that cemetery. Very touching. Is there any chance that there might be more knives for sale in the future?
