It's been a really busy stretch here at Horsetooth, and I am once again sorely behind on posting all the wonderful pics we've been getting from new puppy owners.  We've also got some show and racing updates that are behind.  So, without further delay, here we go:

  • Horsetooth Feynman placed 10th.
AKC Show Results:

Rocky Mountain Hound Association Show - Greeley, CO - 08/15/14:
  • Trinity placed 3rd in the 6 to 9 month old Puppy Bitch class in her first show.  She had a blast!

Now on to puppy pics!

First up, Franklin (HT Clark Bar) and big bro Sulley having a snuggle:

Next up, Chief (HT Rolo):

 "Walk softly, and carry a big stick."

 Or was that saying, "Walk softly and carry a crunchy water bottle"???

 Good Sit!

"All this work makes me wanna curl up on the couch with my toys."

Next up we have Trixie Bell in a professional photoshoot by Heidi Morgan:

Such a pretty little girl!

Next up, we have Heath (HT Heath Bar) and True (HT Gummi Bear) at a trip to visit their grandma in Meeker, CO.  These pics were taken by her - at the age of 97 years young - Great photography!

 Best buddies.

 Sparring buddies....

Ninja buddies...

Next up, Piper (HT York Peppermint Patty):

 "Big night out" - or in!  Nothing beats a relaxing evening of whippets & wine.  :)

The fearless twig hunter.

How about Omar (HT Oh Henry) and Kima (HT Skittles) also having some relaxin' time:

 "Fallen Soldiers"

 Kima says, "This is my brother.  And I shall lie on top of him."

 "And hog his picture time by taking the foreground.  For I am a princess."

 The princess is tired.

 And so is the prince!


Next up, Olive (HT Biscotti Toscani) and her Pekingnese buddy, Zeus:

And how about Waffle (HT Hot Toddy) taking 'lap dog' to a whole new level with her mom:

Pupdates! 08/12/14

Finally was able to pull some more pics to the blog (trouble transferring them lately)...

But first - a GREAT puppy training link with '15 ways not to ruin your puppy' that Sceri & Twiglet's mom shared:  Puppy Training

Here's miss Twiglet (aka HT Twix) and her aunt Sceri (HT Sceri Monkey Sesame Puff) hanging out together:

 Twig says, "Hey!  Come back here!"
 Tug o' War - let the games begin!

"Whew!  All that playing is tiring!"

Next up, here's Heath (HT Heath Bar) and True (HT Gummi Bear) doing some leash training, and also some couch snoozin':
 Their folks report that they sit patiently to get their leashes on...great work!

How about Indy (HT JuJuBes) and Moon Pie on their first camping trip!
 Indy Snuggles

 Moon Pie's got the right idea - find the softest place in the tent to crash.
And already mastering the camp chair!
