Sat 5/7/22 Carolinas’ 44th Annual Hound Show
The Salute the Hounds dinner on the Friday night was during a thunderstorm and power outage, but the crowd remained in party mode!
PAH Huntsman, Martyn Blackmore, beat out 8 other huntsmen to win the Horn Blowing competition.
During the show Saturday, Dynamo was placed 4th in Unentered Dog, which was not bad for a 9 month old puppy, whose immaturity showed, although he moved very well.
Magnet won Entered Dog
Wallace won Stallion Hound
Magnet was crowned Champion English Dog
The bitches swept the board with Mischief winning Unentered Bitch
Wanted won Entered Bitch
Midnight took the Brood Bitch blue ribbon
Mischief was crowned Best English Bitch and then overall English Foxhound Champion

And not forgetting Sparky for taking Jack to Southern Pines to retrieve the hunt truck!
