Hermione and Eowyn were 3rd in their respected cast of Open class run off for hound of the Year. The dogs that placed ahead of them, had to move up in class for all other hunts, so they were the highest placing dogs still in open class. At the world Hunt on Saturday Saw Hermione place Second. Deela Fifth, and Eowyn Six even though she was her cast most of the time. Unfortunately for her while working the brush a bunny crossed the path in front of another dog which got a strike to win that cast. Can't complain too much because that was pretty much how Deela ended up in fifth with a fortunate strike as well. Pumpkin and Hope got to chase bunnies in the starter pen. Pumpkin found one and opened on it Hope AKA loud mouth was involved in a sight chase but never opened.

At the Pilgrim basset club Hunt test Pilgrim as a solo for the first time actually tracked a bunny for a short distance via scent but she did not open. The Pack consisting of Hermione, Eowyn Leila and Deela Ran two bunnies in what proved to be tough scenting conditions. All four qualified. It was Eowyn's third leg for a BHCA Hunting Hound Title. Hermione now has 2 legs and it was a first for both Deela and Leila.

It Was really cool watch all the girls work together as a team. and a little bitter sweet as well without their early mentor Macey being a part of it. If Macey was there it would have been less likely to happen given that Macey did not like running in a pack. She would often go off and seek her own rabbit rather than pack up. If however she was the one that found the rabbit she would never give it up to the pack.

We were 1/3 of the Open class. Entered five though Deela and pumpkin were after thoughts, We did not want to create a third cast just for those two but when it was discovered they Forgot a dog so there were 13 we added Deela and pumpkin to bring the total to 15. Max six dogs per cast and Minimum of 3 per cast except the final cast which is made up exclusively of previous cast winners can be two . Didn't enter Vina who was not feeling well. and throwing up on Friday night, by Early Sunday morning she was at the Emergency vet Having 3k Surgery to remove a washcloth/hand towel She apparently swallowed Thursday night

Vina is doing great, she came home bouncing like nothing ever happened. The challenge is trying to keep her quiet.

Fortunately it did show up on x-ray.
