I received some interesting news from my good friend Donna Saunders at Kennel Houndsbay in the UK.
The Midland Basset hound club are holding a working trials event on July 5, 2009.
There’s been so much criticism in the press about the basset hound that it’s a splendid idea to show hounds doing what they were bred to do: sniff a trail.
If you’re in the UK in July, why not show your support. Full details are available from Donna’s website (PDF).
