Default Boykins in Yankee Land

This thread is dedicated to Jimmy (Jimma) Hall who introduced my son and his girlfriend Blakely PARKER to Boykins at the Southern two years ago.
They were able to locate a breeder in SC where B is from.
After extensive background investigation, the breeder released these two boys to come to CONNECTICUT.

Although their legal names are of two Confederate generals (not politically correct in Blue Connecticut) they are affectionately known as Hall and Oates. Hall is for Jimma Hall. Collectively they are known as the Brown Dogs- as opposed to them big Yellow Dogs.

Here they are with Blakely at our farm where Henry and Blakely live along the CT River.

Default Boykins are unseen but popular in Yankee Land

They are instantly famous at a local restaurant along the river. You can tie up and eat at the Shad Row in season. Right next to the Ferry landing.

They are not at all afraid of the water. This is Jimma Hall.

I'm on my fourth Boykin. You are in for a treat as they will do most anything you want. They are not kennel dogs as they thrive in your company. I am delighted for you.

I guess the picture is upside down because I'm South of the Mason Dixon Line.

Jimma Hall . . . I love it. We would do one for you but I can't talk that fast

Well they belong to Henry and Blakely who are Clemson grads and they can talk the talk.
When I speak to the Brown dogs I pretend I am Jimmy H. They seem to respond to me then.

What special dogs Boykins are...and it looks like you have two extraordinary ones. Do they still bark with a drawl?
