CH Foxcliffe Hickory Wind

Before we get immersed in this busy show week, let’s tell you about the recent Scottish Deerhound Club of  America’s National Specialty.  The Deerhound faithful gathered at the Basin Harbor Club in pristine Vergennes VT for a week long celebration of the “the most perfect creature of Heaven”.

The regular classes were judged by Patti Widdick Neale and she chose as her BOB the US’ Number Two Hound, CH Foxcliffe Hickory Wind. The other major awards were BOS, CH Gayleward's Tiger Woods, BOW/WB, Dhu Mohr Prilly's Quintessence, WD Lehigh Damon of Greymorn.  AOM were CH  Lehigh-Darkwynd Enella, CH Lehigh Dunedain of Greymorn,    CH Thistleglen Rowan, 2008 Number Nine Dog All Breeds, CH Jaraluv Ouija, & CH Glassonby Desert Rose.  BOB winner Hickory is currently the Number Ten Dog All Breeds.  Hickory was bred by Cecilia L Dove & Dr R Scott Dove who co-own Hickory with Sally Sweatt.  Hickory is handled by Angela Lloyd.  Congratulations to all the winners!

On a personal note, this is our 2,000th post.  Our thanks to our readers for making this "pass the time" activity a worthwhile endeavor.
