"Snyder's Hound"

Posted by Chloe Craig on November 02, 2006

"Snyder's Hound"-- someone else asked about the phrase "As fast as Snyder's hound," which is in the archived discussion. I am also interested in this, because my mother's side of the family comes from Southern Ohio, which is near the phrase's origin of Virginia. However, the women used "Snyder's hound" in a new phrase which was "This place looks like Snyder's hound has been through here"-- meaning a room that had been disordered in a hurry, such as a living room after Christmas morning. Does anyone else have any ideas on this on Snyder or his hound? Who was he and why was his dog so fast?
