Nothin' But a Hound Dog, Cryin' Up a Tree



    Make your Summer Getaway a Win
    Whatever Buford was chasing must have been shocked when the hound dog followed it right up a tall tree.

    He's from the state where Elvis Presley made his mark, and this ol' hound dog certainly had something to cry about.

    A family near Knoxville, Tennessee had to call in a bucket truck to get their 5-month-old hound dog, Buford, out of a very tall tree.

    It's not clear how Buford made it up the tree, but he must have been motivated.

    Perhaps he was chasing a cat, or just wanted to get closer to the moon, to howl at.

    Either way, rescuers successfully got the precocious pooch down from his perilous perch -- at which point he made the rounds, greeting his family and thanking the rescue crew with sloppy dog kisses.

    He may have never caught a rabbit, but he is a friend, of theirs.
