Harmonie is part of our long term project to incorporate fresh bloodlines from France. I also picked out a dog puppy, Hasard, who joined Roy and Lesley Blevins in Ireland .” Duke” now holds International, Irish and Irish Junior Champion titles, he has group placements in Ireland and Holland and he has won CACIBS in three countries. He is an outstanding sire, I have used him at stud twice.
Born May 2012, Harmonie is from a small hunting pack in Finisterre, Brittany, breeder Rene Gourves. Her dam has a ” brevet du chasse” on hare, rabbit and deer, and her pedigree is full of hunting qualified hounds.Her sire “Gafi” is a youngster by the famous sire of Champions Brick du Rallye de Ramondens ( cotation 6, elite A).
Harmonie is a deeply pigmented harsh coated small and balanced hound with the splendid rear we saw in her relatives, level topline and the most superb head and ear leathers. She is already showing herself to be a highly intelligent and biddable hound with lots of natural ability, we are very pleased with her.
Harmonies first litter was to Irish Ch Mochras Milo ( March 15).
Harmonie was well named as she has the most wonderful hound voice, soft and modular with lots of conversational tones too. This was her singing along in the garden recently.
