THEN we’ve got a Smilebox for you! Today was the final weekend training session before the hounds head to Morven Park in Leesburg, Virginia, for the Virginia Hound Show. On Saturday morning, this practice session drew a lot of volunteers, and joint-Master Jerry Miller took the opportunity to talk about hound conformation and showmanship. Joint-Master Dr. Jack van Nagell, who will be judging in the American ring at the Virginia Hound Show, also attended and commented on our hounds and their progress.
But instead of focusing on technicalities today, we thought you might enjoy a little Smilebox slide show featuring some of our favorite pictures of both young and older hounds and some of the great volunteers who have been working with them since last fall and winter. After all, this is why we love these hounds. They’re beautiful, personable, and fun. Especially the woollies. Especially the really, really big woollies. Not that I’m biased. So, as the song says, if you’re ever feeling down, just play this again and look into those wonderful bright eyes … and why not thank them for the joy they bring by making a tax-deductible donation to the Hound Welfare Fund?

Good luck at Virginia, everyone! We’re pulling for you!
