Happiest of birthdays to my bestest buddy Fin! He is a love of my life and I just don’t know where the time has gone for you to be 6 years old already.

Holy cow! What a wonderful surprise! “Morgan” – GCH. M&M’s Price of Freedom – won the hound group today in Fresno, CA. Congratulations to his owners, Randy & Anne Greenlee and his handler, Barb Copeland. We are so excited for you all!!
Congratulations to London on her newest litter, sired by Stryker. We welcomed 4 boys and 3 girls into the world. All are black tan. Mom and babies are doing well!
We are very excited to find out today, via ultrasound, that London is expecting babies! They’re due mid January. The proud father is Stryker, who is a liver/tan SAR boy located in North Pole, Alaska. It was quite an adventure getting this breeding done since he is so, SO far away but it certainly was exciting to see today that all of our hard work paid off. 🙂
It’s hard to believe that December is here and Christmas and New Years is just around the corner! Surprisingly, for once, we have kind of a slow month here and the dogs are enjoying being at home without much to do. We did take Chaps to a wonderful event last weekend called Cookie For Kids Cancer. It’s an annual bake sale, where they get donations city wide from local bakeries, and all proceeds go towards funding pediatric cancer research. This was our first time and we enjoyed it! Chaps was a hit and made many new friends. By lunch time on Saturday, the event had raised over $20,000 and was running out of product! So awesome!
We find ourselves thankful all year but especially thankful this time of year for such loving and wonderful creatures in our lives. We are blessed with them and with our extended Bloodhound family. Countless friends and family have been made through our beloved Bloodhounds and we are grateful for this. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
We joined forces with Mary Dolde and Melissa Byrd and pulled off another great Meet The Breeds booth this year for PKC. This is an opportunity for the public to come and meet different breeds of dogs and to learn about each breed from their owners. It is a wonderful public education tool!
We traveled to Camp Hill, PA this weekend to participate in the CBC’s mantrailing trials. HUGE congratulations to Michael and Visa on their mantrailer intermediate title (MTI) and to my most special girl, Little Bit, on her mantrailer excellent (MTX) title. We’ve been working hard together and it has paid off! Although I don’t have their ‘official’ pictures, I do have a pictures from friends at the event of Visa posing for his official shot and of Little Bit just after the completion of her trail. Enjoy! 🙂
Thank you to the participants and volunteers of the CBC for a wonderful event and weekend!
