Such Sadness

Sometimes the sadness is almost too much. Our beloved Quizzical, always a stone eater, damaged her intestines with stones and despite the vets battling on the operating table to save her, we lost her to sepsis. One of lifes' special ones, and we miss her every day. RIP Quiz.

The first of our full time K9 Searchdogs he was an amazing hound who found many lost dogs in his career and was awarded a PDSA commendation for his search work. Mostly though a loved family member and will be greatly missed. RIP Forager and happy hunting old man x

all work and play.......

We had some visitors last week wanting the "bloodhound experience".....they kindly walked lines and filmed Sherman on part of his. Despite the weather it was fun and I hope they enjoyed it and visit us again.
Then on Saturday Mission and Phoebe went to the Bloodhound Club show where  Mission was 1st Junior dog and best Junior, and baby phoebe at her 1st show, came 3rd in puppy bitch. Very proud of them both, despite phoebe having a toddler tantrum and deciding to go on strike mid ring! hahahaha shes a character!

Mixed month

It was a mixed month with highs and lows.....The pups are technically no longer pups!  and have enjoyed their first couple of trips to shows as "juniors". Sherman won Junior dog at both Welks and the National Dog show, and really enjoys the show ring.

Sadly we had to say goodbye to Barvicka this month, due to age related ill health. She was such a wonderful old lady and we miss her dreadfully.

Bellas big day out!

Bella (CH Gioia Delle Isole Lontane at Farlap -imp Bel) ws selected to represent the breed at the Kennel Clubs "Vulnerable Native Breeds" competition at Crufts this year. We didnt enter any of the breed classes at Crufts so had a very pleasant day on Friday (not hound day) with lots of media and public attention for Bella, who lapped it up as usual! She really showed off in the BIG ring and I was as proud as punch of her. Sadly  the judge chose a collie and a setter instead, but we didnt mind, it was a fun day.
