Thread Name: What are jubal hounds?
Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
That's interesting; there may be some bearing on this, but, given the structure of the line, the word is adjectival, so "joyful" is still more likely unless "jubal" was ever used to refer to a breed or type of dog, which would seem not to be the case. So far I don't see any reason to think that there are any real problems or obscure meanings here.
