From the first time I saw Rumor as a puppy sitting on Michelle's couch I was struck by her beautiful head. Even as youngster she had the most regal look about her. We did find out that first night home that even though she looked quite regal, there was a mountain goat hidden in those genes. We still remember just shortly after her arriving at our house looking around for her and there was this little bloodhound puppy walking around on our dining room table. She just hopped on a chair, then right up on the table and was checking things out. We found from that point on it didn't matter if it was table, wall, etc Rumor would be on it and walking around. In the show ring, Rumor did wonderfully, although it was going to be her way. We found early on that the less you fussed with her and tried to stack her in the ring the better she did. She is one of those dogs that walk in, place themselves and you can just hold the lead. Rumor won her puppy class at the first Bloodhound National she went to at barely 6 months which was also her first time in the ring, she then later on as a adult won Best of Winners at the Prairie Lands Bloodhound Specialty and as a veteran placed in a large and very completive veteran bitch class at the 2004 Bloodhound Nationals. She is now retired after producing 2 wonderful litters of puppies for us and a daughter, Lacey that seems to carry on many of her mother's traits.
We had always wanted a "red" and when we saw Cruiser for the first time we knew he was the one we wanted. It took some talking, but we did finally persuade Sherry to let us have our red boy .Cruiser is a lovely example of the loose elastic bloodhound movement and had many group placements with limited showing. He is now retired and comes out occasionally for a trip around the ring as a veteran. His most recent wins as a veteran were at the 2004(?) South Central Bloodhound Regional, winning Veteran Dog and receiving an Award of Merit. Cruiser also traveled to the 2004 Bloodhound Nationals and placed 4th in a large veteran dog class and veteran sweepstakes class.
