Here is an interesting word that I found in “The Missing Three-Quarter” in The Greatest Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I could tell the meaning just by the context, but wanted to share it with you too.
Draghound – a hound trained to follow a scent made with a drag
Usage: “Let me introduce you to Pompey,” said he. “Pompey is the pride of the local draghounds – no great flier, as his build will show, but a staunch hound on the scent.”
(Another book that mentions this method of training hounds is Where the Red Fern Grows. I will write that about another day.)
