Not bad for a baby!

Sherick M&M’s RedHot Carolina – “Carolina” – earned her first points this weekend in Lompoc, CA. Saturday she went WB, BOW and BOS for her first point. Sunday….drummmm rolllll….she went BEST OF BREED over 5 specials AND made the cut in the group – 4 point major! You go girl! She was 16 months old.


Smarty Pants!

We are so proud of Beth & Sherman (aka. Sherick M&M’s Red Hot Howlitzer)! At his first obedience competition weekend, Sherman earned a leg of his CD both Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday, he not only got his second leg, he placed 3rd with a score of 190.5 – Woooo hoooo! Beth said he is half the age of the youngest dog she has competed with and feels he is incredible. We agree!

Happy 4th of July!










Working on the 4th of July? Fin decides to help Michael bury a doggie dooley and after  all the hard work he pitched in with, he decided a nap was in order – get to work Dad, I’ve done enough!

Nolan & Price ….

……we just found out made the 2010 Browntrout Bloodhound Calendar! Click on the ‘back cover’ and you will see the two of them sitting on a dock together. It is the 6th picture showing. Maggie, our good friend’s Bloodhound, made the calendar too and her photo is just to the left of the boys. She is laying in the purple flowers. We are so excited – too cool! A very similar pose can be found in Price’s gallery on his web page. The photo was taken a little over a year ago with a photographer who shoots breeds for breed specific calendars. The publishers contact her when they need new photos and this year our photo got picked!

Back in the ring!

After taking a whole year off from showing, we decided to enter the Asheville, NC shows for some practice before the upcoming Nationals. WOW – what a weekend! Both Saturday and Sunday Paisley, 8 months old, took WB, BOW and BOS for a 3 point major each day! This was the first time we had ever shown together. And, his first time setting foot in the specials ring with his Dad handling, Price took Best of Breed each day for a total of 22 breed points! Not bad for a little practice! 🙂

Fin is at it again!

Congratulations to Fin on his most recent accomplishment! Last week Fin not only obtained his AKC Canine Good Citizen’s title (CGC) but ALSO, in the same night, his Therapy Dogs International certification (TDI). We are SO proud of him and look forward to sharing his encouraging life’s story with those who need some encouragment themselves!

Bloodhound Helps Police Catch Suspect

Angie Boddorf, FOX43 News / July 11, 2008

It was a bloodhound named Merit who pointed police to a suspected burglar early Friday morning.

The Summit Search and Rescue dog was called to the China Wok Restaurant in the West Shore Plaza to try to pick up the scent of the person who broke in. Money from the register was stolen.

Terri Heck, Merit’s handler, said the female bloodhound just has to smell an object that came in contact with something the suspect touched.

“We do at times use gauze that is placed on something to be able to scent from something that is not easy to put in a bag,” said Heck Merit led police several blocks down Market Street to Stanley Mosley.

“She was presented with a scent article, and then she worked the track to a residence and then alerted on something in the yard and then at the door,” Heck said.

Mosley scuffled with police before he was taken into custody.

He’s charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and a drug offens.

The China Wok burglary is just the latest in a string of Chinese restaurant break-ins since early June.

Police departments from Cumberland and Dauphin Counties formed a joint task force to solve them.

They will now compare notes to determine if they are all connected.
