Coon Dog Cemetery
The Key Underwood Coon Dog Memorial Graveyard is a specialized and restricted pet cemetery and memorial in rural Colbert County, Alabama, US. It is reserved specifically for the burials of coon dogs. The cemetery was established by Key Underwood on September 4, 1937. Underwood buried his own dog there, choosing the spot, previously a popular hunting camp where “Troop” did 15 years of service. As of August 2014, more than 300 dogs were buried in the graveyard.
Criteria for burial are fairly well established, albeit being subject to interpretation and application. Only bona fide “coonhounds” are to be buried there. The exact measure of that standard depends on breeding, experience and performance; and seemingly depends on who and when the tale is told and the determination made.
