Ten Bavarian Mountain Bloodhound puppies born by a C-section: pictorial report

Gary Huber is a passionate tracker and dog handler, who co-founded Deer Search of Western New York. He has been tracking for decades and it is hard to find anybody more dedicated to blood tracking with dogs and hunter education. He is also a member of the United Blood Trackers. These days he tracks with two dogs, a Bavarian Mountain Bloodhound "Beya" and wirehaired Dachshund "Kita".

At the age of 6 years Beya had her first litter just four weeks ago. Because of the number of puppies (10!) and her age, whelping was performed by a C-section. Beya and her pups are doing really well, and if you are interested in an excellent prospect for tracking, give Gary a call at 716-648-7417 or e-mail him Pups are available to working homes only!

A big thank you to Gary for excellent pictures showing how a C-section is performed.

Congratulations to Brigitte Walkey on her two new Field Champions!

It has been four weeks since our last post, and we have never had such a long break before. Sorry about that! We have been busy with Tuesday's puppies (we blog about them at, but also attending Trackfest in North Carolina (May 15-20) and then both us getting sick with a really bad cold did not help. There is a lot to write about, but let's not be too ambitious for this post.

We would like to congratulate Brigitte Walkey from Langley, B.C, Canada, on finishing two new Field Champions last weekend at Cascade Dachshund Club field trials in Washington. One of them is FC Springwood's Naya Everdeen sired by our Billy, who also was the Absolute Winner on Saturday. The other was Penny Can & Aust Ch Am FC Ozbree Penelope Spring Wire, Naya's dam. Naya's brother, Springwood's Billy Cesar, was first in the OAAD stake.

Congratulations Brigitte!
