BIS, Multi BIG, Aust. CH. Mingus Hound Hopscotch (Dec.)

We lost Hopscotch one day after his 11th Birthday, (heart attack) gone hunting with all Foxhounds that have gone before, reunited with his beloved Jan..
My dear friend Jan Edwards wanted her favorite boy Hopscotch to come live with me and my other foxhound after she passed away and now Hopscotch is here with my pack of foxhounds.


STOP POST: Hopscotch takes out BIG at Isis Canine Club Open Show 31/7/10 and yes I cried, it was so great to have the old boy recognized for the great dog he is.

Hoppy has the criteria and the 1000 points needed to gain his Grand Champ title but unfortunately all his challenge certificates besides the ones I got with him were lost when Jan died so he will never get that recognition officially.


At 7 1/2 years of age Hopscotch is a father for the first time, we were not sure if he was fertile but he and my girl Melbourne Nettle have 12 beautiful babies we had 14 born but lost 2 in the first week, I am so proud of my lovely old man.

Hoppy will most likely retire again from the show ring if we keep a pup to show from the litter on the ground now.
