Hi Judy!


Cedar is doing so great!! We just love her!! She is my husbands pride and joy.

We are going to want a male in the next year or so we are thinking, you did say you had different mom and dads, correct?

I'll attach a picture or two! Thanks again, we couldn't be happier.

Greetings from Kansas.


Dropping a line to say that Copper is doing great. We bought him from you two Christmases ago and he is a huge part of the family. Outside of a bite to the head from a copperhead snake, he has been healthy and happy. We thank you for providing us such a great dog!


Have a great day,

Earlean is the most comical and lovable dog we have had- 100% hound but just such a charmer. Will send you more photos over the summer during her pool time. Thank you- we are so happy with our choice- we will be repeat customers!

I think one of the real gems you gave me about relating to bloodhounds how to speak to them. You are so right: Yell at them and you lost them. You real can talk to them like people.

Hi Judy!,


Willow is amazing! She is such a great puppy! Growing like a weed! She is about as tall as our labs and getting closer to Ranger. She is just a little stinker and using her nose to get into trouble just like Ranger. She saw her first snow in December and really didn't know what you think of it but now she loves it with the rest of the dogs. I call Ranger and her double trouble. She always wants to be center of attention and sometimes Ranger gets jealous and pushes his way through. She loves giving kisses especially with her wet ears and drools. Most of the time she is a couch dog and crews all her toys on it and not on the floor like she should but we spoil her a lot. She does sleep with me once in awhile and loves to take over the bed as if it was hers. Willow is a very happy puppy and uses her cuteness to get her out of trouble and it always works. I'll do my best to keep you updated with her and Ranger!

I hope this finds you well! I thought I would share with you a little update on Kale. He turned 1 yesterday! He is a very loving, energetic, goofy pup! He absolutely loves his Basset Hound sister. His favorite thing to do is play and hog all your attention. His favorite toy are my socks if I don't get them locked away fast enough. He is a handful, but he being nothing but joy to our family. Please enjoy these recent photos of him.

Take care!

Hi there,


I just wanted to send you an update since it has been quite a while. We got Sadie Sue from you 5 years ago and it has been a pure joy. We came across Otis just by chance three years ago. Turns out Otis grandparents(Bronson and Blue Bell)and father(Major Bronson's Blue Bully) came from Mountain Crest. Needless to say these dogs have brought a worth of joy and smiles and slobber. And we love every minute of it. Thank you for showing us the joys of the breed.

Hey! Ranger is getting so big! His favorite things are to play with his brothers Trapper and Duke all the time! He loved playing outside in the snow this year! Snowballs were his favorite! He has become into one big happy dog! When my dad goes anywhere he can take Ranger, he opens the sunroof in his truck and Ranger sticks his head out of it. It's pretty funny to watch it! He is quite the family dog and loves to be center of attention. Whoever walks into our house gets a warm welcome from Ranger. He loves talking to people and they all love it. Him and my dad are best buds and they have a nightly cuddle session on the couch every night before they go to bed. Ranger is one big hoot to have and we all love him to pieces!

I know it has been a while since I have updated you on our precious Kale! He is getting soooo big. 6 months and 75lbs of love! He is so clumsy and goofy! He cannot get enough of being outside! I can never get him back in the house ha ha. Two of his favorite things to do are chase leaves and dig holes!

He loves his Bassett sister so much. They play constantly. It's like all they do is play sleep play sleep oh and eat.

Here are some recent photos of our boy! We love him dearly!

Hi Judy!


It's Jill and Eric. We took "Eustice" the last male of the litter who came out here to SAN Fran.


Now COOPER, this pup is growing at a crazy pace and loves home!! He's such a sweet boy!! He licks us to death and sleeps between us. Something ALL of our hounds have done! He's potty training well and is getting spoiled silly.


Teething has begun which is hilarious because you can't take your eyes off him for a moment. We've crate trained a little - he does well with it- but we're home so much he usually just hangs with us. He comes to the local eateries with us where he's a star and is loving the fall hiking weather.


Thought you'd like some pics. Thanks again!! We absolutely love him and he seems so happy!

Hey, Judy!

I watch your website and saw you were moving... are you staying in the

area? Also been watching your puppies as love to see their pics. I might

have got the second one with that discount, but believe me Attila is worth

two!!! He is growing like a wild weed. He is a wild one. Super active and

into every little thing. We love him! He is a special one. Is there

anything I can do at this age to work with tracking? He uses his nose for

everything he does, but not sure how to encourage staying on a trail..... I

am going to try to attach some pics for you!


Let me know if no pics, and I will try again!

Hi Judy! Just figured I'd show you what Toby did last night! A friend got a large doe on our hunting property about 7:15pm, so we had Toby track it. Took just a couple minutes for him to find her! At 5 months old, we think he did great! He has been such a great boy, and he's getting so big!

Hi Judy,


As you can tell from my pictures I dearly love my Abby girl. The picture with her up on the perch is an old slide platform we had when the boys were little, but Abby perched up here about every day and so we left the platform and removed the slide, until she hurt her leg. Now Greg has taken the steps off so she can't climb anymore, but he is going to build a ramp for her.


The winter picture is up in the U.P.. We went snowmobiling but Abby had to lead the pack of snowmobiles or she was not happy. She absolutely would not ride in the cart behind. It did not work out so well, but we all had a good time watching her and then I took her in the cabin to rest so the others could actually ride. Ha!


I enjoyed talking to you this afternoon.


Have a good evening,

Thank you for working with me. I assure you he has a good home and I will try and let you know how he does trailing.

Oh man, shes great! She's catching on VERY well to obedience training so far. I've track trained with her one time but, really don't understand it, unless she was just too young or preoccupied to participate. Haven't skewered a bear yet but, it's getting colder so, he should be more predictable....1, 300 plus coming to my bait and he's the only one ive seen on camera so, it's a matter of time. I will save blood for Lucy and plan on doing the same with deer. On my next days off, I am going to find a roadkill deer and cut a leg off to drag for her. Hopefully she's more ready this time around. I figure, I'll start her on deer scent and really work her on that before moving on to blood, bears, and humans. Hot dogs are definitely the key! She is 99% obedient to here, look, and sit....and about 80% obedient to down, heel, stay, and place with hot dog bits in hand!!!! Now, I am hoping she will respond to the most important, find him, command in the coming weeks. Great to be in touch....


God Bless you guys, Eric and Heidi

Pastor Judy,


Sampson (sent to Maryland) had his first visit with the Veterinarian today and got a booster shot and a complete physical. He got all good marks for his physical. The office staff just loved him and wanted to keep him, they seemed to be taking longer than usual to get him checked out, hmmm.


The Dr. was very impressed with his constitution, and his breeding. I thought you would like to know that. This breed is extremely rare in this part of Maryland.


Everyone at my church is asking why his name is spelled Sampson, instead of the Biblical Samson. I don’t know that it matters that much.



I hope your Fourth of July celebration was joy filled and family oriented. Mine was.

Hey, Ranger is doing really good and loving this spring weather! Last time we took him to the vets he was 61 pounds! He is getting taller everyday and is pretty much the same height as our yellow lab! He loves playing in the mud and getting dirty but we don't mind that at all!

Miles is an Actor and told us Boone would eventually become a Movie star...Look up Miles on Face book and see the difference love and food can do for any dog....

Hi Judy and Gary

Recently I took a friends of mine dog to her Vets office for a complaint about a limp the dog had, I entered the room and the Vet and his assistant (whom was Male also) proceeded to concur with each other about the dog. Well she certainly needs Xrays so they called the Xray tech took the dog to lab.

Minutes later they reentered the room, The Vet said to his assistant, "Did you see the Horn of the Uterus?"   Yes he said, It is very large and this is causing trouble. The dog needs to be spayed imediately.

I said wait!  My friend is not interested in spaying her dog, she is concerned about the limping.

The Vet says  " Well in due interest of the pets quality of health she needs to be spayed, then we can deal with the complaint on hand.

I was in shock so I called my friend and asked her what her decission was, She said leave the office now, so I did.

We collaberated with your Vet , This is what he said, " Your dog is lame due to dryness of cracked pads, Put a little Vasoline on her daily and she will come out of it in a week or two.

We did as he advised and she did heal.

Thanks for your article written about lack of hormones etc, if we hadn't read about the warnings of this first,  we surely would have taken the first Vets advise.

After concuring together of course the dog has a large Horn in her uterus or around it whatever, she is a breeder female and this is a natural event for every dog who has ever had puppies, she is a healthy girl with normal dog history.

We called you Vet and thanked him for telling us the plain truth.  We also wanted to help anyone who is dedicated to their Vet .  If they are telling you to do something you feel is wrong get a second opnion.

Hi, Ranger is the best dog possible. He just loves everybody when they come over to the house. He loves going to rides and we always get compliments about how beautiful he is. My grandmother is doing really well. She thinks of you often and wonders how you and your family is doing. My dad can't believe how fast Ranger is growing. He is going to be the perfect tracking dog for my dad. He loves retrieving outside with anything that we throw for him. He loves playing in the snow and sometimes we throw snowballs at him but he hasn't realized he can't actually bring them back. The other day when I was home I made a snowman and of course I put sticks on for the arms and little rocks for the eyes and buttons and a carrot for the nose. When he went outside to go pee, he was more interested in the snowman and was trying to take the sticks out of the snow but he wasn't able to but was even funnier was he jumped right up on the snowman and grabbed the carrot and ran off with it. Such a carrot hound. He ended up loosing it in the snow and it was pretty funny watching him stick his head in the snow trying to get it back but he couldn't. He definitely entertains us. I will keep updating you with Rangers progress and all the cute pictures that I have of him.


Take care,
