Non Bloodhound – if you can imagine? lol!

Yes, every now and again we do things without our dogs. We were very fortunate to spend a week at Oak Island, NC with our best friends and their two children who are our God children. Here is a night out for ice cream with Molly & Olivia ­čÖé

HOLY cow! A CDX?!

To say we are proud of their accomplishment just can’t touch the way we feel! To do general obedience with our breed isn’t the easiest thing to do, but to compete in traditional AKC obedience with a Bloodhound is a huge accomplishment. Beth and Sherman make one of the best teams we’ve ever seen. This Companion Dog Excellent obedience title is a feat all in its own but this was the title he got that inducted him into the American Bloodhound Club’s Working Dog Hall of Fame … this just makes our hearts sing! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
