Trowsahound created the topic: victorian deerhounds in England?
I'm currently reading 'Mistress of Charlecote' the journals of Mary Elizabeth Lucy of Charlecote Park near Stratford upon Avon in about 1875 - she describes a theatrical event where they used a deer carcass her son provided for a prop, and even brought onto the stage 'The deerhounds' - I am naturally curious to know if these were real deerhounds or Stag hounds?
Her son was a fanatical hunter who would spend months on end shooting grouse in Scotland, and who quite possibly would have come across the Scottish hunting hound..
Is there any evidence that there were scottish deerhounds in England at about this time? I know Queen Victoria had a wheaten one, but not sure how unusual that was....
