One of the things I like to do is to encourage new owners to show their little hound. Entries are falling, smaller local shows need support or new judges wont have sufficient numbers to progress. All the ” Mochrashounds” are family pets, first and foremost, yet if any owners want to give the hobby a go it can be very rewarding. We try to meet up as a ” family” and have a picnic together afterwards, the fauve family certainly enjoys its meet and greet session.
Our star this year is Barry and Brenda Goodwin’s Fabien Fitou, winner of a reserve Challenge Certificate at his first championship show aged 6 1/2 months. ” Basil” has a full life with many holidays in France, but we hope to see him at a few more events as he is a lovely little chap.
Our best known winner is probably Ch Mochras Marzipan, belonging to the Fluge family in Norway. She has a hunting qualification, was the Euro Winner 15, and is a tireless huntress of hare with many successes to be seen on the ” Vetterli Kennel” website. She is Ch Melchior’s sister.
Casper is owned by Tim and Stephanie Arnold. He’s by Ch & Ir Ch Mochras Melchior ex Hibeck Cream Cracker, born 11-08-12. This photo was taken Easter 2013, visiting his father…. his mirror image…… photo credit Tim Arnold.
Dr John and Mrs S Hubble’s Mochras Marignac is the dog in full forward motion on the header bar of this website, and some of the best photographs taken of my hounds are from John – thank you!
” Norbert” has had a really good first year, winning lots of firsts in puppy and junior classes. He is by CACIB winner and Irish Champion Enclos Rallye de St Paul ( France) ex Marmalade. Norbert has taken full charge of the family Rottweilers and hunts down any pheasant unlucky enough to take up residence.
